If you did not watch the riveting live speech on Saturday, or fell asleep at the start, you may have missed the big announcement that The Antique Boat Center has just become a New Chris Craft Dealer. Their business is still primarily antique & classic boats, but now you will be able to buy and get serviced a brand spank’n new Chris Craft in a place that is dripping with history and a true passion for the brand. Most likely Antique Boat Center has sold more Chris Crafts than anyplace in business today. This is huge news and a sign of more positive change for us in the passion/hobby/sport/culture/lifestyle of classic boats. Chris Craft has perfectly tied in it’s new designs with a respect to it’s past. This is no easy task by the way, many old brands rely on sentiment and history to carry the day and fail. Time marches on, but values and great design stay true. Chris Craft is one of the stars, and picking the Antique Boat Center as a dealer is amazing. Imagine wanting a new Chris Craft right now. Where would you rather shop? A dealer with multiple brands of big faceless plastic crap, or a place that drips Chris Craft and all that makes these some of the coolest boats out there. nothing faceless about a Chris Craft! You can see all that’s great about this great brand all in one place. A Center…. Maybe buy one old, one new? It’s always nice to have a fun U22 next to that new Launch. We here at Woody Boater are very excited about this move and a big hats off to the good folks at the Antique Boat Center for raising the standard of Classic boat Sales and service. Here is some video to warm you up. And if you want even more Chris Craftiness, here is a link to the Chris Craft Website.
