Product description

Chris Crafts were first produced in the 1910s as high-end powerboats. Throughout the years, Chris Craft became synonymous with boating. It is available as a FULLY ASSEMBLED model ready to be proudly displayed. Master craftsmen handcraft these highly detailed wood models from scratch using historical photographs, drawings, and original plans. They are built to scale with high-grade wood such as western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany. They are 100% hand built individually using the plank-on-frame construction method and are similar to the building of actual ships. Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. This Chris Craft Triple Cockpit has a hand-stitched green leather interior. The gauges have detailed lettering to show a realistic look. All the ornaments on the ship are made out of metal to make the boat really stand out. There are two flags that represent the Chris Craft heritage.

This model comes with a wooden stand. It'll make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast, or passionate collector.

Founded by Christopher Columbus Smith around the 1920s, Chris Craft Co. still stands as a leader in producing high-powered, luxurious leisure boats. The quality of his models was tested through competitive speedboat racing, and the Christ Craft superiority rang true as the boats consistently proved victorious. During the era of prohibition, speedboat racing was embraced by gamblers, industrialists, and mobsters. These men readily financed the high-powered designs of craftsman such as Christopher Columbus Smith, John L. Hacker, and George Crouch. As Smith's boats started to receive awards such as the coveted Gold Cup of the American Power Boat Association, the Chris Craft name started to become a star among nautical enthusiasts. He continued to thrive in the speedboat competitions and his string of victories further accelerated the explosion of his company's success.
