Blending classic sportboat styling with yacht-class quality, the sleek Chris-Craft 33 Corsair raised the bar for day-boat luxury when she was introduced in 2006. Chris-Craft marketing hype described the 33 as “in a class by herself” which was true enough considering that there were few boats to compare in terms of construction quality, amenities, and price.
Built on a heavyweight deep-V hull with a relatively wide 12'3" beam, this really is a beautifully styled boat with a tumblehome stern, flared topsides, and abundant teak trim. Stepping onto the wide swim platform, a teak walkthrough leads into the cockpit with its aft U-lounge (with sun pad conversion), wet bar with sink, hot-and-cold shower, and two forward (double width) helm seats. The engine compartment is accessed via a hydraulic-lift hatch. Below decks, the Corsair’s wellappointed interior—with hardwood cherry joinery and designer fixtures—features an enclosed head, a surprisingly large galley with microwave, and wraparound forward seating which converts to a double bed.
