Let’s Go Racing

In fulfilling a commitment to return to powerboat racing, Murray Chris-Craft developed the new 300 Chris-Cat, a racing catamaran powered by twin 400 or 420 HP high performance power plants and was added to their 1984 sportsboat fleet. The boat went on to set new speed records in its class that year and in years to come. Chris-Craft was back in the racing business. As with Chris-Craft’s founder, Christopher Columbus Smith and his sons, Murray realized that a racing program would benefit in developing safe performance watercraft for their customers. He wasted no time in putting together a winning combination of equipment and talent.
