The compelling story of a man, his company, and his boats, this history explores the legacy of Christopher Columbus Smith, the country's most innovative and successful production boat builder. Chris-Craft describes how Smith, together with his sons and employees, designed a pleasure boat that captured the hearts of boat buyers who appreciated beauty as much as function. Illustrated with historic museum photos, this book will appeal to boat enthusiasts who are just as interested in the intriguing history of the Chris-Craft as in the boat itself.
