The Chris-Craft Launch 28 is a versatile runabout designed to be the envy of your yacht club, harbor or the megayacht fleet if she is your tender. She is equally at home on Lake Wawasee, Indiana, or Monte Carlo. This boat is for the discriminating boater who understands the Chris-Craft heritage and appreciates the high watermark of runabout design which began in the 1920s -- over 90 years ago.
The "mission" of the Chris-Craft Launch 28 is not to be the fastest boat on the bay, because there is always someone in a bass boat or PWC who can go faster. Rather, the Launch 28 is intended to be the most elegant boat around. To that end she can hold her own with glitzy yachts 20 times her size which cost millions, but are often decidedly deficient in nautical refinement. Yes, the 28 can be used as a yacht club launch. She seats 10 people easily, and any club that we know would love to have her for she aims to please. The 28 would also make a refined captain's gig for a megayacht. With an LOA of 28' 9" (9.0 m) and a 10' (3.05 m) beam she will fit easily on most boat decks of vessels of 130' (40 m) or more.
We are hard pressed to think of any boat built on the west side of the Atlantic that has the exquisite finish work, intricate fiberglass moldings and elegant details all rolled up into one as does the Chris-Craft Launch 28. To us, and many other boaters who have been around awhile, she is almost a piece of artwork, one sculpted out of fiberglass, teak and stainless steel instead of marble.Every square inch of this boat's exterior has been fashioned in the best traditions of the sport of boating. She is a 21st century replica not of any individual boat but rather of a concept of old-world style and elegance. To us, those are her unique features. Ironically she is made of the same fiberglass, resin, and stainless steel of lesser boats. In fact, even her engine, equipment and inner workings are mostly the same components as in boats a fraction of her price. But what the other boats don't have is the total package wrapped-up in an enduring design.
