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, www.chriscraft.com
The Launch 28 GT is available with petrol inboard and outboard propulsion
The retro-style helm is a thing of beauty
