The Versatile Chris-Craft Launch 36

launch-36The Chris-Craft Launch 36 is a boat that is full of surprises.

This 36-foot center console provides boaters with a shocking amount of versatility. It has an attractive, sporty look. Its spacious accommodations can sleep five. Its innovative layout and amenities make it perfect for entertaining. It can be an ideal boat for a 3-day cruise, or for an afternoon spent swimming and picnicking. And it is both powerful and responsive. Of course, being from a legendary manufacturer like Chris-Craft, perhaps the versatility of the Launch 36 shouldn’t be a surprise at all.

When Chris-Craft first released the Launch 36, Boating Magazine named it their “2014 Boat of the Year.” In doing so, they described it as “a versatile day boat that’s perfect for cruising or overnighting.”

One look around this boat and it quickly becomes evident why it receives such praise. The Launch 36 is designed for sociability. Behind its triple-wide helm seat is an entertainment center featuring an ice maker, a refrigerator and a built-in microwave. There’s also a built-in sink and both a grill and an electric stovetop. This entertainment center is hidden away under a hatch with attractive latching teak doors when you’re not using it, and it can open easily with twin gas-assisted struts. The setup makes it easy for the host to continue socializing with guests while preparing food or drinks.

The Launch 36 also features a lounge and seating area similar to a bowrider. It has a large sun pad forward of the windshield with forward-facing recliners. It also has a bench along the bow complete with cup holders, stainless-steel grab rails and twin stereo speakers for entertainment. And the Launch 36 has an attractive, teak-laden swim platform.

Down below, the main cabin has lots of natural light thanks to two windows. There’s a private head and a separate shower, so both can be accessed simultaneously. And the spacious cabin has lots of storage and can accommodate five, making it great for long weekend cruises.
