Giving back to the community is an important effort at Chris-Craft.  We have a Community GO Team that plans, promotes and organizes our community outreach events. Our parent company, Winnebago, also has the Winnebago Foundation which supports outreach programs across all their companies and provides employees with the opportunity to receive grants for charities they support.
Some of our outreach programs are shown below. 


Crafted with the same passion and dedication as they were 150 years ago, Chris-Craft boats continue to speak to boat enthusiasts everywhere. Whether it’s an open bow ideal for socializing, or a larger cruiser with a cabin for extended excursions, every inch of every boat we build is carefully considered. 


Our vision is to build boats that stand out in a sea of sameness.
Our mission is to design and build premium boats that remain true to the heritage, the iconic status and the reputation of the Chris-Craft brand which represents American built, history & heritage, classic elegance and design excellence, craftsmanship and absolute quality, exclusivity and total reliability and exceptional client service.
