U.S.-based Chris-Craft announced its Launch 28 GT will make its European Debut at the 2018 Cannes Yachting Festival in September.

The Launch 28 GT is a new hull and an entirely new design for Chris-Craft. The new Launch 28 GT has a walk-through transom and reversible sun pad that moves forward and backward for lounging, or additional seating while underway. You can choose to board the boat from the transom, dive door, or one of the three swim ladders.

The new boat, available with the option of sterndrive or outboard, is highly customizable. From metallic paints and cross-stitched upholstery, the Launch 28 GT will also showcase a new upholstery pattern from Chris-Craft throughout the cockpit. Varnished mahogany can be found throughout the boat.

One of the most distinguishing features of the new Launch 28 GT is the elegantly styled folding tower. The tower provides shade for the cockpit and can be used for watersports. When not in use, the electric tower folds forward for towing or for storage.
