This open bowrider sports the classic vertical bow, sloped tumblehome and exquisite details that have defined Chris-Craft for decades. With beautiful U-shaped loungers in the bow pit and hand-finished teak throughout, the Carina graciously seats 7 and provides storage for all the toys that come aboard for fun on the water. Carina 21 is ideal for splashing around the bay, or acting as beautiful tender for a larger boat.

Nothing Else Looks Like It. Or Acts Like It.

That’s the point. More elegant. So remarkably thoughtful, it even comes with its own fitted cooler to serve up a chilled beverage whenever you desire. The Carina 21 is the bowrider for those who ride a different wave – and leave the standard crowd in their wake.


Only the highest quality marine vinyl and custom fabrics are selected for Chris-Craft interiors. Choose from 9 solid and two-tone color combinations to create the Carina 21 that is uniquely yours.
