Chris-Craft welcomes a new member to the family. Chris-Craft introduced the new Corsair 32 at the 2012 Sales Meeting, held in July, in Sarasota, Florida, USA, to Chris-Craft Dealers from around the world. Steve Heese, Chris-Craft President, said: “The Corsair line carries the main DNA of the legendary Chris-Craft brand. We built her to fill a need in our closed-deck series of cruisers.” The Corsair 32 is the newest member of the Corsair family and is also the sister ship to the new Launch 32; which made its debut to rave reviews at the 2012 Miami International Boat Show. WSB take a closer look at this new closed deck sports boat.
The Corsair 32 is well-suited to accommodate overnight excursions but is also built for day cruising and quick turns around the bay before a champagne sunset. Corsair 32 owners can choose from a multitude of exterior options including custom paint colors such as the new Cashmere Metallic.
“We are very excited about our new custom color offerings for 2013, which include the ability to please the discerning Chris-Craft customer, by building the boat to their exact specifications and we do this, all in-house,” said Steve Heese.
