Chris-Craft is a truly American story. Born in 1874, the company came of age at a time that defined the notion of American ingenuity. While Henry Ford was creating the first motorcars, his watercraft counterpart, Chris Smith, was developing the very first engine-propelled boats and skiffs.
For over 145 years, Chris-Craft has continued to thrive because quality is always valued. In 1959, Time Magazine would recognise the popular phenomenon of pleasure boating and put Chris-Craft on its cover. Throughout its rich history, a reputation for quality and style has made Chris-Craft the favourite of presidents, celebrities and icons of American affluence – names like Roosevelt, Kennedy, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Ford, Sinatra and Hepburn.
The legacy of Chris-Craft can be seen on the water today, in a peerless range of sports-cruisers, day boats, launches and bow riders from 23ft to 35ft. Maintaining the same levels of craftsmanship and quality, this Sarasota based manufacturer remains an industry leader in the production of recreational boats that define agile performance and traditional craftsmanship.
