If you haven’t heard of Chris-Craft Boats, you probably don’t know your port from your starboard—this builder can be traced back to Christopher Columbus Smith, who began building boats in 1874 at the age of 13. Although the company has gone through many
acquisitions, changes, and modifications since that time, it remains an industry powerhouse with a range of 19 boats including runabouts, cruisers, and center consoles. Today’s models feature a mix of classic styling and eye appeal with performance and ultra-modern construction techniques and design.
The Catalina 23 is a stylish fish boat not only for serious fishermen, but also as a water sports boat for the family. It bears all of the beautiful and traditional design features of Chris-Craft's other models. This Catalina has an overall length of 23 feet 6 inches and a beam of more than eight feet and can comfortably accommodate eight people. Boasting two of Chris-Crafts most recognizable features, the deep-V hull and flared bow, passengers can be assured of a smooth, dry ride while aboard.
