25 Chris Craft bow rider boat w/ Volvo 8.1 Duo Prop

58 mph in a 25’ luxury bow rider from a Chris Craft boat? Yup, with the Volvo 8.1 engine and Volvo Duo Prop stern drive in a lightly loaded boat.

This bow rider model uses the hull that brought Chris Craft boats back on the big lakes and open bays as a boating market leader. She rides proud, with her bow high as she takes chop, wakes, and rolling waves in your afternoon boating spin. Chris Craft has re-tooled a second layout for a bow rider version as well as the runabout closed deck design that came to market first. She is 27’ 2” LOA with a maximum beam of 8’ 6” for easy of use with a trailer, if you desire.

Volvo invented the modern version of the two propellers on one shaft drive that revolutionized inboard outboard (I/O) stern drive boating for boats over 20’. That inboard outboard matched up with the Volvo marine-ized Chevy engine in the 8.1 size does not require Catalysts for 2010 in any boats except boats that are sold or used in CA, Chris Craft, or not.
