Chris Craft harkened back to their mahogany roots with the introduction in 2003 of the 28 Launch, a premium retro-style bowrider whose meticulous detailing and classic tumblehome stern set her well apart from anything on the market. Quality like this didnt come cheap, and the premium price of the 28 Launch was enough to give pause to even the most affluent buyers. Clearly, this was a very special runabout for upscale boaters willing to drop a bundle for a sexy, drop-dead gorgeous toy. Built on a deep-V hull with a well-flared bow, the amenities aboard the 28 Launch are many. The cockpit is notable, not just for its plush Ultraleather seating and custom entertainment center, but for its simplicity and comfort as well. The old-world dashboard is a nostalgic throwback to the 1950s, and an electric engine hatch provides easy access to the engine compartment. The gelcoat is flawless and the stainless steel windshield is a work of art. Additional features include a pressure water system, cockpit cooler storage, transom shower, and flip-up bucket seats. A single 385hp gas MerCruiser I/O tops out close to 40 knots; twin 280hp Volvos reach the mid 40s wide open.
