We appreciate every employee and want to have fun where we work. Therefore, we host many employee events throughout the year. Some of those are outlined below.


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.
Hurricane Relief – Employees donated food and household goods to support the families affected by Hurricanes Michael and Florence.
“Fill the Boat” Food Drive – Supported by the Winnebago Foundation, we raised food for the Food Bank of Manatee.  A matching donation is made for each pound donated.
Adopt-A-Child – The company adopted 20 children through Salvation Army’s program and employees donated gifts for these children. 
Community Tours – Chris Craft hosts many community groups and schools on tours of our facility. The goal is to show the community and students what we do and career opportunities available.
Some of our outreach programs are shown below. 


Crafted with the same passion and dedication as they were 144 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.
