CHRIS-CRAFT STYLE 
 

With the Heritage Edition, you’ll enjoy a full teak floor, teak covering boards, and teak accents throughout, enhancing your experience and the boat’s iconic beauty. A plush captain’s chair puts you comfortably in charge at the rich wood and stainless steel accented steering wheel.

FLEXIBLE EASE
 

Position the rear sunpad to create a comfortable aft bench or stern-facing lounger. With the outboard engines, you’ll also enjoy storage areas beneath the sunpad. Plus, a transom walk-through provides easy access between the swim platform and cockpit.

WELL-EQUIPPED
