New 2013 Chris Craft
There are six cornerstone qualities that ensure every Chris Craft boat you'll ever see lives up to the values and beliefs upon which Chris Craft Boats was built more than 130 years ago. These elements are brought to life not only by our commitment to traditional boat-building skills, but also to leading-edge technology. They are echoed by the way in which we design and engineer our boats, by our construction techniques and by the materials we use to produce them. Our objective is to give you a boat that is a pleasure to own, firstly, because it promises an enjoyable and memorable boating experience every time you use it and, secondly, because it is an object that can be appreciated simply for its stunning design and craftsmanship.
At Chris Craft Boats we believe that the physical form of a boat should captivate and inspire you before you even step aboard. Graceful curves and sharp edges should blend seamlessly together to create an organic shape of undeniable beauty. Great design always appears to be simple and understated when first encountered, but through appreciation reveals subtle details that reflect the considerable effort expended to create visual harmony. The enduring quality of design that stands the test of time is a simple beauty that speaks to the heart.
Over time, Chris Craft boats design language has evolved to produce a set of distinctive design signatures:
-Large cabin house windows with teak surround
-Perforated plate dashboards
-Sit pits in the bows
-Custom-fabricated deck hardware
-Premium exterior and interior hardwoods
Chris Craft boats are high-performance boats that are designed to be enjoyable to drive. We ensure that they are fast and powerful enough to provide a swift means of transport, but also sufficiently responsive and maneuverable to impart a feeling of confidence and control.
-Large displacement engines mated to appropriate transmissions.
-Efficient propeller design maximizes the available performance for each hull and engine combination.

Fluid dynamics of the hull design

To Chris Smith founder of Chris Craft Boats craftsmanship was not just what you did, but also the way in which you did it. We continue to build the legend exactly as Chris Smith would were he still alive today.
A passion for wood
If any material has defined Chris Craft boats it is wood. Our knowledge of how to use mahogany, teak, oak, maple and cherry woods for both interior and exterior marine applications remains unsurpassed.
Quality of materials
Be it fiberglass, exterior hardwoods or wall coverings, we only use premium grade materials at Chris Craft Boats. This adds to the cost of our boats but reflects the integrity of our uncompromising approach to quality.
Attention to detail
Part of the pleasure of owning a Chris Craft boat is that over time you discover new details to appreciate. Our windshields, air horns, hatches and navigation light fittings are all custom-tooled; wooden steering wheels are a delight to hold while custom-fabricated ChrisCraft boats instrument gauges are clearly visible in all light conditions.
