Seattle WaterSports

Chris-Craft returns to the Portland Boat Show for the first time in years! Chris-Craft brings to the Portland Boat Show an entirely new version of luxury with two amazing boats, the Capri 21 and Launch 25. The Capri 21 embraces design cues from the brand’s original DNA and harkens back to the Chris-Craft vertical bow models of the 1930’s. This new runabout is built with a “vertical bow” profile, complete with stainless steel bow plate, but it also carries the classic sloped tumblehome that has become a signature of the Chris-Craft design. This year’s showboat will also sport a new graphite metallic paint color that is now available in the Chris-Craft line-up. Stephen Julius, Chris-Craft Chairman, stated: “The Capri 21 speaks to the past but the design appeal is forward thinking and unmistakably Chris-Craft.” The Capri 21 is the first boat to have the new cockpit with new seats, fabric and diamond pattern upholstery harking back to a bygone era.

Royal Marine – 410 Cantius

The 41 Cruisers Cantius will be at the Portland Boat Show. We promised big boats, and here you go! This boat is loaded with factory options and with the sporty 41 Cantius, you’ll never again be in search of the water’s most exciting venue. The 41 is it. Designed with features and amenities that create the perfect atmosphere for entertaining, you’re the host with the most at any dock. It’s all a result of the 41’s much-lauded open-concept layout, which invites everyone to participate in the experience and stay connected. See it at:

Sea Legs NW – SeaLegs

SeaLegs is a revolutionary concept in the power boat market designed and developed to take all the hassle out of the boat launching and retrieval process. The Sealegs system consists of motorized, retractable and steerable wheels which are fitted to specially designed boats to give users a fully integrated, turn-key package. The Sealegs system works by having powerful motorized wheels (think a Jeep) which gives the user a variable speed of 10 mph (forward and reverse) powered by an on-board 22hp Honda driven hydraulic power-pack. A Sealegs boat can be driven from a storage location, down a boat ramp or beach and into the water – all with the occupants staying in the boat and remaining completely dry! Once in the water, the Sealegs wheels are easily retracted into the “UP” position and are completely out of the water. The boat is then driven and used as normal. When approaching land, the Sealegs wheels are lowered into the “DOWN” position while still moving in the water. You have to see this to believe it:

Schooner Creek Boat Works – Morris 36

One of the big boats at this year’s show will be a Morris 36 that Schooner Creek has just repainted; the hull sides and refinished the decks. The Morris 36 is a very high quality, high performance sail boat with classic lines. This particular boat has black hull sides, and with the freshly refinished decks and bright work, this boat shows beautifully and is a must see! The purpose of displaying the Morris is to emphasize the quality of workmanship performed in Schooner Creek’s full service repair yard.  They will also bring two boats from their Pacific Cat line, which are 12′ long catamarans, ideal for hunting, fishing, or as a tender for a yacht. Additionally they will have a mast and rigging display, Harken sail hardware displays, Steyr Diesel Engine display, PER Re-manufactured engine display, Bow Thruster display, Max Prop Feathering prop display and more.
