Chris-Craft Recreational Luxury Powerboats for Sale

 


“Our mission is a form of nautical art, delivering an exceptional boating experience that simply cannot be rivaled.”


Chris-Craft is an American cultural icon with nearly 150 years of heritage. 13 year-old Christopher Columbus Smith built his first boat in 1874, in Algonac, Michigan. He referred to his boats as “punts” or “skiffs” which quickly earned him a reputation as a master boat builder and the demand for his boats grew. As a result, Chris joined forces with his brother, Hank, and the boat production began full-time, which laid the groundwork for their future as builders of “standardized” runabouts.

The Smith Ryan Boat Company was formed which focused on building fast, economically priced runabout boats for the masses in the year 1910. In 1922, the Smith Ryan Boat Company changed its name and Chris Smith & Sons Boat Company was formed. Jay Smith, Chris’s son, was designated the President and General Manager of Chris-Craft in 1927. Under his leadership, Chris-Craft became known as the world’s largest builder of mahogany powerboats.

Chris-Craft, the name has always been synonymous with quality because it is crafted with painstaking detail by the most skilled carpenters, cabinet makers, joiners and artisans in the business. Chris-Craft continue their tradition to produce some of the finest pleasure craft on the market and ensures that your boat is perfect on the water.

The entirely new design from Chris-Craft was showcased at a press conference on 15 February 2018 at Miami International Boat Show. One of the most distinguishing features of the new Launch 28 GT is the elegantly styled folding tower that provides shade for the cockpit and can be used for watersports. When not in use, the electric tower folds forward for towing. The Launch 28 GT is a new hull and an entirely new design for Chris-Craft.
