Launch 38

stock Number:

The largest of the family, the Launch 38 entertains 15 with a fully equipped console kitchen, and sleeps 5 in a luxurious forward berth and separate mid-cabin quarters. A full bathroom with shower invites guests to settle in. Sumptuous triple-wide seating at the helm lets the captain and 2 guests enjoy the immense power delivered via integrated stern drive or outboard engines. In the Hard Top edition, maximum topside enjoyment is guaranteed, regardless of the conditions.

Let the Entertaining Begin

A teak console houses a complete kitchen that performs double duty. Equipped with an ice maker and refrigerator, as well as an outdoor ceramic cooktop and a grill, it’s always ready to serve, whether it’s a day trip or a week-long stay.


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 Launch 38 that is uniquely yours.
