Despite that Chris-Craft doesn’t build high-performance boats, the Sarasota, Fla.-based company’s retro-stylish offerings still hold serious appeal for many go-fast powerboat enthusiasts. And those who attend the Miami International Boat Show Feb. 11-15 will get their first look—at least in the United States—at the new Capri 25 in the Chris-Craft tent.

According to a press release from the company, the Capri 25 is the second member of the Capri “Vertical Bow” family. It follows on the heels of the successful the Capri 21 which was introduced at the Cannes Yachting Festival in 2013.
From the release: “Similar to its younger sister, the Capri 25 embraces design cues from the brand’s original DNA and harks back to the Chris-Craft vertical bow models of the 1930’s. The classic sloped tumblehome has become a signature of Chris-Craft design.”
The redesigned Corsair 28 also will be on display in Miami next month.
Chris also will unveil its redesigned Corsair 28 during the show. According to the release, the boat has “more luxurious touches than ever before and supremely elegant lines” and “sets unequalled standards for performance and quality.”
