This is a beautiful 100% handcrafted mahogany Chris Craft model. It take hundreds of hours to build by skillful and creative master craftsmen. Contains hundreds of beautiful details such as shiny chrome and brass fittings, very detailed dashboard and leather seats. Layers of vanishes are applied; the hull is then smoothly sanded between coats to create a mirror effect. This model was built according to scale through original plans, pictures and drawings. Extensive research thru original plans and pictures makes this model look authentic. Each model goes thru a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. Rested in a neat wood stand. Model shipped fully assembled. This item is just as luxurious as the real boat.
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 20s, mostly runabouts were produced, but with the introduction of his speed boats, Chris Smiths fame took off.
Love the details and the accuracy of this model. It truly is a replica of the old Chris Craft triple cockpit. Currently displaying it in my living room and are getting many compliments family and friends. Highly recommended!
