Chris Craft Launch 30 – Elegant Runabout

The Chris Craft Launch 30 is a strikingly beautiful boat that combines the best features of a classic runabout and a bow rider. Just like the other boats in the Launch family, the Launch 30 exudes style and elegance. When the Launch 30 was first introduced, it resembled the lovely wooden runabouts from the 1950’s.  This boat model was a big hit at the boat shows held in New York and Florida. Years later when the Launch 30 was reintroduced to represent the Chris Craft of today, it continued its winning streak in terms of popularity in the boating circuit. Reminiscent of its proud heritage, the new Launch 30 is presented in a new design and technology. The sleek tumble home design, the sturdiness of a fishing boat and the fittings of a luxury car were all combined to design the new Chris Craft Launch 30.

Reverse down angle chimes run the length of the boat and contribute to a smooth and stable ride. The teak swim platform on the heritage edition of the Chris Craft Launch 30 with a retractable stainless steel swim ladder provides quick entry into the boat after a relaxing swim. You can also have an optional walkthrough with a removable seat cushion. Perfect for day boating the Launch 30 can easily accommodate 10 people aboard. The large seating area provides ample space for your family and guests to enjoy the cruise. The circular bow area is wide and has insert cushions that can convert this space to a huge sun lounge. There is plenty of storage space to get these filler cushions and boating gear out of the way when not in use.

The flip-up bolster on the helm seat adds ergonomic flexibility and allows the captain to stand with support while navigating the boat. Ideal for water sports and for entertaining friends and family, the boat is full of practical features. A Bimini top is standard on the Launch 30 and can be stowed away under the engine hatch when not in use. The refrigerator in the galley can stock your choice of food and the optional freezer plate can be used to keep your drinks cold while you indulge in your favorite water sport. Listening to music just adds to a great boating experience and this is made possible with the stereo system and speakers on the Launch 30. The head compartment is neatly tucked under the forward console of the helm.
