Three cockpits

Three cockpits

Chris Craft is one of the classic favorites of our motorboat line. It is an oversize model of a runabout that was introduced just prior to WW II. In the 1930's, Chris Craft had developed a hull design that was able to come on plane quicker and offer a smoother ride. Their Double and Triple Cockpit epitomized the "Level Ride Principal", and in its day was the epitome of a classy water borne "go fast". Its 250 HP eight cylinder engine allowed it to achieve higher speeds. Our model is built from the original builder's plans using the much desired plank on bulkhead method one plank at a time, and then finished in bright varnish over her hull. The deck is detailed in hand laid planking with alternating colored hardwoods to look like teak and holly. All the deck fittings are custom cast in metal, not plastic, and exactly duplicate what was used on the real boats of that era. Special pains were taken with the windshield bracket at considerable expense.
