Chris-Craft Launch 27


A shining jewel like each of the Launch family, she combines comfort and performance. Offering greater power, increased agility and the additional space afforded by the longer hull and wider beam.

The Chris-Craft Launch 27 is a glittering jewel in our launch crown, a stunning boat that effortlessly combines sheer comfort with brilliant performance. If you want a boat with real power, with astonishing agility, this is your perfect choice.

The designer’s selection of materials is exemplary, from the top-end fabrics in the two-tone upholstery (which are sun and water resistant) to the gorgeous teak finishes on the swim platform, at the bow, and in the trim. When you look at this platform side by side with just about any, it’s simply in another class.

The custom stainless-steel bow light hardware is curvaceous. One more thing about running the Launch 27: when someone else wants a turn, you won’t want to give up the captain’s chair. Literally. It’s an over-sized, stainless-steel framed, flip-down bolster affair, and it’s extremely comfortable.

The Launch 27 simply out-classes other boats of this nature.
