If you’ve ad­mired the style of Chris-craft’s Cor­sair range but need the prac­ti­cal­ity of the Ca­lypso range then the Launch 28 GT is an ideal com­pro­mise. Its lines and de­tail­ing are just as swoon-wor­thy as the Cor­sair’s, but the side board­ing gate, oo­dles of deck stor­age and bril­liantly com­fort­able bowrider sec­tion make it one of the most prac­ti­cal boats in the yard’s line-up. It’s a supremely well ex­e­cuted day boat and there isn’t an inch of space go­ing to waste. The cuddy toi­let with elec­tric flush is a valu­able ad­di­tion for longer stints out on the wa­ter, too. The helm sta­tion is as beau­ti­fully crafted as any we have sat in front of, blend­ing gor­geous retro ana­logue di­als with the most mod­ern nav­i­ga­tion equip­ment.

There is a good se­lec­tion of in­board and out­board petrols up to 430hp, so per­for­mance should be lively. CON­TACT Bates Wharf Ma­rine. Tel +44 (0)1934 314457,

The Launch 28 GT is avail­able with petrol in­board and out­board propul­sion

The retro-style helm is a thing of beauty
