With her retro styling and curved Tumblehome aft, the 28' Launch conveys the classic Chris Craft look of yesteryear.
Building your boat… If  “only new will do” we’d  appreciate the opportunity to speak with you! The grace of  classic design and the unequalled beauty, ambiance and ride of  wood construction combine with modern power, systems and construction techniques to create these new classics at a level of quality, reliability and performance  never  dreamed of in days gone by. In their time, Gar Wood motorboats left all competition in their wake, winning the coveted Harmsworth Trophy year after year. I have known and worked with Pete Fish for over 30 years and after building more than 130 boats and restoring countless others,  Fish Brothers are rightly considered one of the finest wooden boat builders in the Country.
A buyer should instruct his agents, or his surveyors, to investigate such details as the buyer desires validated.


Today’s Gar Woods, as powerful as they are beautiful, are sure to make your heart race. The old-world dashboard is a nostalgic throwback to the 1950's and the electric hatch provides easy motor access. This is a problem since my success on these will hopefully help propel me to a position where I can one day, hopefully( a big hope) own one of these.
I would putt around the many coves of Moultonborough Bay in my 14′ Starcraft with a 20HP Johnson and I would discover a new beauty to dream of owning one day.
When Dad was feeling flush we would take a boat ride out of Weirs Beach in what they called a Winnepesaukee Racer and the ride was the most incredible and exhilarating experience of my youth. We probably took a ride after that and got some pretty good air off the chop of the often turbulent lake waters.


Durning my short stint in great land of Ohio, I went out dozens of times in both vessels to Put-in-Bay.
The movie is worth not seeing not for this though, but rather the two best faces ever to star in one movie.I had the pleasure of helping to restore a Chris-Craft Sedan like the one in this link.
