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.
Kept in boat house, used in fresh water on Lake George, NY. Dealer maintained. Terrific lake boat. One of the most widely recognized names in wooden motorboats, Chris-Craft got its start in 1922 in Algonac, Michigan, with Chris Smith and his sons Jay and Bernard at the helm. Chris led several boat building ventures prior to that, including a partnership with Gar Wood building race boats. Chris-Craft focused on standardized boat production, enabling them to build boats year-round and at a good profit - while still being affordable to the average guy. Chris-Craft's boat lines included the runabouts, utilities, cruisers, and sea skiffs. They also built motors for a period of time. The founders sold the company in 1960, but Chris-Craft continued building wooden boats until 1972. The company is still around today, building boats made of fiberglass.
