Chris-Craft in Australia

Post by Al Benton » Mon Aug 08, 2011 3:19 pm

Chris-Craft and Hagerty have stepped up and have become proud Sponsors of the Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club. Thanks to both.

I recently saw a news video from the Annual Boat Show in Australia that featured Steve Heese, owner of Chris-Craft. He offered a wonderful testimony about the Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club in his interview with the media. He's very proud of his relationship with this Club as a Sponsor. He may have exaggerated the numbers a bit but I believe it shows his pride in being associated with us. He said that Chris-Craft is a symbol of timeless elegance and quality, that their mission is to fulfill the promise of that brand. All things that relate to what we do as a Marque Club.

Bill, I found the story, here's the link. As I mentioned, he may have exaggerated some numbers but it definitely shows his pride. He speaks highly of his association with the CCABC.

Especially the new Silver Bullet. What a great looking "go-fast" boat. Would love to take a ride in one of them.

I went to the Sydney Boat Show in 2005, and was surprised to see Chris Craft in attendance, and even more surprised at the prices.

How would they have compared with the USA prices?
