PRESENTED is an oversize model of a 1934 Chris Craft 28 foot Triple Cockpit speedboat that originally sold for what was then a very high price of $4975.00. 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 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 speeds of 45 MPH. This made it the fastest boat in the Chris Craft Fleet at the time.
Like all our models, it 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 and deck with maroon bottom paint, just like the original. The deck is detailed in hand laid planking with alternating colored hardwoods to look like teak and holly. The forward Chris Craft pennant and the American Ensign are printed on both sides and read correctly. The hatch over the engine compartment lifts off, and the seats are covered in pebbled leatherette. 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 windshields at considerable expense.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
      • 1:1 scale
      • Scratch-built from official plans.
      • Plank-on-frame construction.
      • Mahogany planking.
      • Hand laid deck in individual planking, not with scratched lines.
      • 8 layers of paint and varnish.
      • Accurately replicates the real boat's elegant hull with attention to details
      • Realistic gages, switches
      • Flags imprinted on both sides
      • Detailed metal fittings
      • And more!

Mounted on a varnished wood stand she makes an incomparable model. A perfect addition to your home, den or office

An enduring design

BRIEF HISTORY: The legend of Chris-Craft began in 1884, when Christopher Columbus Smith began the Smith Boat House on the St Clair River in Algonac, Michigan, to manufacture small duck boats and power launches. Later, the company was extended to Chris Smith and Sons Boat Co. Many of his larger runabouts were used as taxis; transporting guess on the river front to resorts, or to various sightseeing attractions. In the twenty's, mostly runabouts were produced, but with the introduction of his speed boats, Chris Smith's fame took off.

Chris-Craft was the largest producer of mahogany boats in the country. In one year alone, one million feet of mahogany was delivered. Truck load after truck of Philippine Mahogany would arrive at the factory daily. No wood was ever wasted either. First, the lumber was air dried; then various hull parts were laid out using templates and patterns, were cut into plugs to be cemented into the counter sunk holes of the screws. All scraps were burned in the furnace for fuel.

The decade of the thirties showed a tremendous growth in the company despites the market crash of 1929. However, in 1939, Chris Smith succumbed to an illness which had begun to affect him years before. The death of Chris-Craft did not deter the growth of the company. During the Forties, especially the war years of '42 to '45, Chris Craft produced over 12,000 LCPR (Landing Craft Personnel Raft) for the Army. 98 other pleasure craft were also produced. During this time, the "Barrel-Back" style was introduced. With its pointed bow, and curved transom, created a sleek look took the market by storm. The post-war economic boom at Chris-Craft was felt in increasing sales and the new product lines.

Even with a management change that took place in the early eighties, Chris-Craft bounced back with sleeker designs and a greater market share. Chris Smith would have been proud.
