Chris Craft boat w/ Mercury inboard outboard drive

Chris Craft has a new bow rider boat with a Mercury inboard outboard drive for 2010 ½. She is built on a proved Chris Craft hull with an all new main cockpit and bow rider seating. This is the deep vee hull that takes a rough afternoon chop so well with its wave spitting forefoot and strake placement. However, this one will not go “bow high” when you take off for ski and wakeboard activities. Here, there is a tournament ski boat style special lifting pad going forward a bit from the transom.

WOT speeds are well into the low 50s with a Mercury 5.0 V-8 and a Mercury inboard outboard drive. The hull has been run with far more Hp, though, and has shown speeds of near 70 mph with a special set-up using a stock Mercury engine and a inboard outboard drive from Mec Racing.
