13738227_1074032489329504_3773113703436734191_oWhen it comes to boating and hanging out on the water there are few experiences that compare to ones riding on a Chris-Craft.  Whether for sport or luxury any time spent on a Chris-Craft is usually time well spent along with being loads of fun.  If you are lucky owner of one of these finely crafted boats we are sure you spend plenty of time on the water enjoying your water privileges.  While you probably take all usual supplies for each trip we always like to hear about the extra perks that people like to add for their time on the water.  Lets take a look at three of our favorite out of the box items to take for a nice day out on the water.

Chris-Craft Boat Experience Add On #1: Wearable Sports Technology

A lot of times when we are out boating we are also participating in water sports or other physical activities of some type.  What is more fun then tracking a lot of these and seeing just how much you put your body through while hitting the lake.  Something like the waterproof Polar M600 powered by Android wear watch or if you prefer there are also plenty of Apple based options as well.  Worst case scenario is you have integrated GPS just in case you get lost while having to much fun.  Waterproof wearable sport technology is a great addition to any boat ride and sure does beat losing your iPone or iPad to water damage.

Chris-Craft Boat Experience Add On #2: Vaporizer Pens

No one likes a smoker when on a boat ride especially when you want to enjoy the outdoors and a safe time on a high powered water craft.  While cigarettes should certainly be out of the question one add on you may want to consider bringing is a vape pen and sweet smelling vape eliquids.  Not only are they all natural and healthy but they provide a great alternative for those would be cigarette smokers.  By bringing a few of the best vape pens you can find you can impress your guests in style once again with the latest in popular technology and culture.

Chris-Craft Boat Experience Add On #3:  Healthy Snacks

Sure bringing a snack on a boating trip might sound obvious and boring but that is sort of the point with this last tip and that is the fact that boat food can be fun and healthy at the same time.  Spending a whole day out on the water playing can really burn up some calories so you always want to be prepared with at least something to munch on while spending time on the water.  What really is the Chris-Craft boat experience without including some of the finer things in life and that means tasty food that can mesh will guests eating and preference types.  Our favorite picks are a healthy organic all natural beef jerky to satisfy those high endurance boat riders.  Then for everyone we highly recommend doing fruit, vegetable cheese and meat kabobs.  Get yourself some nicely aged Fontina and some Fresh Mozzarella and pair them tomatoes, grapes, spinach, favorite meats and dips and whatever else you can imagine.  Every boat trip needs a health snack for all to enjoy so o not forget it!

Travel Channel Extreme Factories Tour of the Chris-Craft Manufacturing Plant Video

As an avid Chris-Craft powerboat enthusiast I truly enjoy everything that is Chris-Craft. From its humble beginnings to its rise to fame, to its fall from grace and now its ascension back to the top again the story of Chris-Craft is what makes it more then just a boat. I always watch the Chris-Craft youtube videos mostly just to drool over that I can not have but also to stay up to date on the latest news and information. The Travel Channel extreme factory video is one of my favorite and I wanted to share a few thoughts on some of the more interesting parts of this Chris-Craft cover piece.

Chris-Craft Prices: 

The video notes that Chris-Craft boats now sell from $30,000 all the way up to $700,000. There is one thing for sure about Chris-Craft powerboats and that is they are not cheap. Expect to break the bank on any Chris-Craft purchase and I actually bought my boat used to save a little extra money which I highly recommend.

Chris-Craft Divisions:

Its interesting to see in the video how critical each division of the company. It takes a lot of working parts to deliver such craftsmanship. The video mentions there are Fiberglass teams, Electrical teams, Woodworking teams, Upholstery teams, Engine experts, carpenters and Hull, Liner and Deck specialists. There is a lot that goes into making Chris-Craft that is for sure and let me tell you its apparent in every ride. Each time I go out on the water I am always in awe at the elegance, luxury and power of my Chris-Craft 

Chris-Craft By The Numbers: 

I love this video because it shared so many cool stats and facts about the Chris-Craft company which is now based out of Sarasota, Florida. Some of the numbers mentioned included 20 acres of business space, 175 employees, 30 – 35 products in production at any one time, same molds used for 50 years, 6 step laminate process all cultivated through a 140 year legacy.

My Favorite Part Of The Video:

I think my favorite part of this Chris-Craft video is how they describe and go over the “Tumble Home” concept which is what gives the Chris-Craft powerboats there unique look and shape. I think it is one of those things that sets the boats apart from others and is a design concept that truly makes them a thing of beauty. One thing about pulling up to the water with a Chris-Craft. Everyone knows just how exceptional these water crafts are.
