Latest models from the iconic motorboat brand to be showcased at this year’s Southampton International Boat Show, stand E094
Argo Yachting, the luxury motor yacht sales specialist and sister company to Princess Motor Yacht Sales, has been appointed sole importer and distributor for Chris-Craft in the UK. Under the Argo Yachting umbrella, Chris-Craft UK will make its debut at this year’s Southampton Boat Show (13th-22nd September). Also making its show debut will be the Launch 28 GT, one of the latest additions to the extensive Chris-Craft line-up.
Founded in Michigan in 1874, and now produced in Sarasota, Florida, Chris-Craft is one of America’s long-established motor yacht brands, which is renowned for classic styling and the finest quality of craftsmanship; creating timeless, supremely comfortable luxury day boats, sports cruisers and launches.
Argo Yachting will showcase the Launch 28 GT, one of the most recent additions to its fleet, which combines impressive performance with all the classic good looks and premium fittings Chris-Craft is known for. This versatile bow-rider has received widespread acclaim for her elegant lines and retro styling ̶ particularly the use of varnished mahogany, stainless steel and hand stitched upholstery ̶ and her carefully designed features offer everything you could wish for from a luxury day boat.
Argo Yachting was launched last year and specialises in the sale of new and used motor yachts between 30 and 100ft and promises a second-to-none after sales service that goes ‘beyond brokerage’. Speaking about the Chris-Craft UK debut at the Show, Argo Yachting CEO, Max Whale says: “This long-established American firm is known for creating fast and luxurious day boats and we’re thrilled to be representing the brand. The Launch 28 GT is an excellent example of the first-rate craftsmanship seen in all Chris-Craft vessels.”
Argo Yachting now exclusively represents the Chris-Craft brand in the UK and the Balearics and will be distributing the full range of Chris-Craft vessels throughout these regions. As sister company to Princess Motor Yacht Sales, it benefits from over 50 years’ experience in high-end motor yacht brokerage. Other acclaimed vessels in the Chris-Craft fleet include the centre console Catalina 34 and the sleek Corsair 27, part of its covered bow range.
