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 Launch 28 is stylish and elegant, but it's also amazingly practical. The combination of a wide-beam and a larger forward seating area provides impressive comfort with ample space for the entire family. The larger beam can accommodate a range of twin engine packages. You can specify up to 425 hp which gives the 28 a truly impressive performance for a bowrider. This model also has an increased fuel capacity, allowing for a longer cruising range.
