Chris-Craft have been in the boat building business since 1874. They have a feeling of total ease upon the waters. Rarely if ever do you experience that hard bounce, boats made with less expert hands do when running the waves. My father bought his first boat when I was 8 years old, and we all fell in love with racing across San Francisco Bay and out beyond the Golden Gate.
The boat has two main decks on its 40 foot length. In the bow area, there is a seating well with another area for sunbathing. In the prow area, a ladder takes you up to the Captains cabin, which is enclosed on three sides and has a fully glassed in visual area. on the prow deck there is room for 3-4 people to sit and watch the water, fish or merely sunbathe.
Below decks there is a head, with a sink, shower and marine toilet. A bedroom and a fully equiped gallery with a refrigerator, stove, sink and lots of storage. Facing the gallery is a leather banquette and table that can seat 4-6 people with ease.
These are amongst the most well crafted and stable boats on the planet. In fact they are the only boatwrights who's boats were used during D Day in WWII. JFK and Franklin Roosevelt had Chris Craft's, along with many famous people from Hollywood and New York. Ours is the Corsair model which is still seaworthy to this day.
If you want a boat both safe and durable, as well as attractive and functional, don't waste your hard earned money on anything less than the best: Chris-Craft.
