The most luxurious bow rider in its class with a wide 10-foot beam and a compelling mix of quality and elegance seldom seen in a production boat. This classic beauty is highly desirable and has all the detail and amenities expected from Chris Craft. It’s a head turner with an amazing presence on the water from its twin engine power (375 HP EACH) to its stunning lines and classic finishes.
No cost has been spared to make this boat stunning. The boat’s color is Chris Craft’s classic nautical blue and white with matching blue Bimini and canvas. We just installed brand new two-tone upholstery and infinity woven flooring throughout, including a custom removable bed for the rear section. The helm is stunning, with features like a captain’s chair wide enough for two to enjoy the ride. Conveniently located forward of the helm station, is the head. There is generous room in the head as well as a VacuFlush toilet and a vanity with sink.
The combination of a wide 10 beam and large forward seating area provide exceptional levels of comfort with ample space for family and friends. The boat is certified as a yacht and can comfortably accommodate 12 guests to entertain. The bow seating area can accommodate five guest and can be converted into a dining area with the table installed or you can enjoy the entire bow as a sun bed area. The aft seating in the cockpit, incorporates a chase lounge to port, and is the perfect place to entertain. Just aft of the captain’s chair, is a wet bar with sink, refrigerator, storage cabinets, and significant counter space for snack preparation.
This was a special year for Chris Craft which produced this Launch 28 with a walk through transom from the rear teak deck. Later Chris Craft Launch models require you to climb over the back seat. Ample storage can be found throughout, including floor storage, a rear ski locker, a large closet, plus all the under seat storage.
If you need the trailer, I purchased a brand new triple-axle all-aluminum trailer last year with disk brakes, hydraulic surge and custom aluminum mag wheels. This is available for purchase for an additional $7,200.
This boat has been well cared for, serviced regularly (just last week) and has been stored indoors during the winter and run in fresh water. It was just buffed and waxed from hull sides down and all the teak was treated. We have thoroughly enjoyed this fantastic Launch 28, but we are moving into a larger boat. This is a beautiful, must see vessel, which is ready to continue its classy life with its next new owner.

Are you in interested in selling your boat
or are you ready to buy a boat?
I have been very fortunate to have spent much of the last 12 years cruising aboard our boat with my amazing family. I have cruised the east coast from Maine to Florida several times and have sailed to Bermuda. I rode out hurricanes Sandy and Irene. With that cruising life came the knowledge developed from the personal restoration and reconfiguration of our boats both sail and power. I am eager to share the knowledge gained in my hands on approach to boating and the passion I have for this incredible lifestyle! I am always looking for new quality listings to connect to new owners.
I work tirelessly for my clients in assisting them in locating, previewing and purchasing boats in addition to selling their boats. If I can assist you in your pursuit of “simply messing about in boats” I would be honored.
