SARASOTA, Fla. (February 9, 2010) – Chris-Craft Corporation, a leading manufacturer of premium quality boats and motor yachts, announces the introduction of its all new model, the 2011 Launch 20 bow rider.


This smallest entry in our bow rider series will impress you with its luxury class appointments. You will find the roomy and comfortable bow seating “best in class” with large oval stainless steel hand rails, stainless steel drink holders, and MB Quartz speakers. Concealed under the bow seating are two storage bins as well as a molded anchor storage compartment designed to hold most 7-10 pound ground tackle. As you move aft through the large walk-through opening to the main cockpit, you will find a complete stainless steel framed curved glass windshield, which in not normally found as standard equipment in this size range.


The new automotive-styled helm area and glove box accommodate all necessary controls, gauges, and switches in a highly-styled aluminum perforated dash, in the traditional Chris-Craft style. Built into the floor is a full-length ski locker and standard cooler. Also new for 2010 is the padded Sea Grass carpet mats which add a touch of luxury and comfort to your boating experience. Our design team is constantly searching for new ideas and components.


As you take the boat out for a spin on the water, one cannot miss the brand new cockpit helm seats that incorporate large diameter stainless steel arms and headrest handrail features. At Chris-Craft, we spare no expense using all rotocast molded seat shells, roll-pleated expanded marine vinyl, and extensive use of double top-stitch accents. To top it off, the new seats now sit on solid stainless steel pedestals, which are not only beautiful, but provide a strong base upon which to captain your boat. Moving aft toward the transom is the full aft seat with built-in bimini storage, upholstered motor hatch, and, of course, our signature teak inlayed swim platform.


Our Engineering and Manufacturing teams are riding the wave of technology to create the most elegant and functional product you will find on the water. The use of high quality stainless steel and teak components truly differentiate a Chris-Craft from the rest of the “me too” boats out there. Visit to learn more.
