1955 Chris Craft Corvette 42 ft Cruiser
The 1955 42 ft. Chris-Craft Corvette Cruiser was the largest most powerful cruiser built by the legendary boat builder. Chris Craft began building * Cruisers* very early in their long history, starting production in 1922 with their 26 ft "Runabout". In 1928 Chris-Craft began production of the 30-foot =93Custom Commuter=94. = In 1929 the 38-foot model was introduced and a year later a 34-foot model was available. Chris-Craft produced *Cruisers* from the 23-foot Express Cruiser 1941-1942 to the 55-foot Motor Yacht 1939-1941 in the Pre-War years. The 16-foot Cavalier Semi-Enclosed Sports Cruiser 1957-1959 to the 74-foot Roamer Motor Yacht 1977 followed using mahogany, steel and fiberglass to construct the hulls and cabins. Although cruisers as such were not considered a company production boat in those early years, some cruisers ranging 28- to 55-foot were believed to have been custom designed and built for a small number of clients. The Company grew rapidly from the old boat house in Algonac to a new 7,500 sq. ft. facility just outside the village in 1922 to almost 150,000 sq. ft. of floor space under roof by 1927.
