Since the beginning, Christopher Smith crafted the boats that dreams are made of. Chris-Craft boats became the cultural icons that gave people a new freedom to explore the clear waters of local lakes and distant shores. And they were built with the values and benefits that defined our country and our way of life. More than any other brand, they were responsible for America’s romance with boats – and ultimately, for redefining boating pleasure for generations of people everywhere
On the water or on the deck, nothing else looks – or feels – like a Chris-Craft. From the beginning, our obsession has been to design and build boats that are objects of desire. Now, and for decades to come.
For 144 years, we’ve been building boats one way: by hand. From beautifully sculpted hardware made from custom-fabricated stainless steel, to carefully selected and meticulously applied teak, we design and craft every detail that you see and touch.
