An impressive mix of elegant (retro) styling and impeccable workmanship, the innovative layout of the Chris Craft 36 Launch is unlike any other boat on the market. Where most bowriders are designed with port and starboard consoles, the 36 Launch is more of a center console boat with a roomy cuddy cabin beneath an elevated bow seating area. Named Boat of the Year in late 2014 by Boating Magazine, they described the 36 Launch as a versatile day boat perfect for cruising or overnighting. One look around and its easy to see why. With her elegant (retro) styling and meticulous workmanship, the Launch is a deluxe entertaining platform with no equal in her size range. Behind the triple-wide helm seat is a fully equipped open-air galley complete with ceramic cooktop, icemaker, sink, and grill. Two curved sofas occupy the rear of the cockpit, and the cabin is ringed by recessed side decks. Instead of facing bench seats, the bow area has a huge sun pad with forward-facing recliners and an aft-facing bench seat at the bow. There are five berths below (including a mid-cabin aft) as well as a full-sized head and shower. The 36 Launch is offered with stern drive or outboard power. Did we say expensive?
