Please see a review below on this model:

A new player has emerged in the top-end range with the Chris Craft Launch 25, it’s sure to impress everytime it hits the water, writes Dean Sampson

 

From bow to stern, the new Chris-Craft is a real eye-catcher that oozes sheer style, performance and quality and a quirky dash switch.

Underway, the 25-footer moves comfortably on Sydney Harbour on slight to moderate swell and as the throttle eases up to a cruising speed of 56kph the boat rose smooth and gracefully on to the plane with no effort.

Pushing the throttle forward this boat really starts to make a statement as you are pushed back in the seat and taken for an exhilarating ride.

Top speed was 95.4kmh and as the tacho hits 4710rpm, at no time did this vessel feel out of control, even as it was thrown into tight turns, it still handled like a true high-performance boat.

Despite offering style and grace, this boat is also ideal as a recreational (ski/wakeboard) vessel and a feature on the stern is a hidden pop-up ski-pole.

 

 

MILD TO WILD
On the dash, amongst the vast array of switches is a quirky, selectable exhaust switch that changes this boat from mild to wild.

Any rev-head worth his salt, knows it’s not enough just to look good it has to sound good, and when you flick this switch the boat transforms right before your ears.

So what’s it do. It changes the direction of exhaust gases through the leg which is submerged under the water to outlets just above the waterline on either side of the boat. It gives a real throaty sound and really makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck.

Once I discovered this switch it did not return it to its original position for the remainder of the test.

This vessel is really what cruising in style is all about, I could not fault this vessel no matter what I threw at it. I believe this is one of the best boats that I have tested in this category.

 

 

WHISPER QUIET

Under idle you’ll find yourself checking if the whisper-quiet engine is actually running, however, when you flick the exhaust-resonator switch the pitch from the engine is pure music to the ears and is a feature.

At 2500rpm you are travelling at 30.7 knots which is the optimum cruising speed while, at 4710rpm top speed of 51.5 knots is achieved, impressive for this size and style of craft.

The cruising range is an impressive 458km on 321lt of fuel.

The finish of this Chris-Craft is at the top-end of the market. With stainless steel fixtures, highly-finished fibreglass and timber in-laid decks this boat is setting the bar high amongst its competition.

 

 

CONCLUSION

I rate this boat as one of the best American imports on the market. It is a top-end boat aimed to please both the cruising and sports-minded enthusiast. A real feature is the full fibreglass structural liner, foam-filled for floatation and sound-deadening which makes for a safe and comfortable ride.
