Chris-Craft Capri 25. Legendary classics

Share:

After the stunning success of Capri 21 American shipyard Chris-Craft continued to work on a larger boat of the same series. As a result, there was a Capri 25, who managed to win last autumn not only azure coast, but the visitors held in February in Miami Boat Show.

Despite the fact that a lot of competitors in the shipyard, Chris-Craft style is difficult to confuse. Exquisite design boats refers to the golden era of the 50s of the last century: the time to finish dominated varnished mahogany, leather, chrome on the dashboard, and the plastic has not yet entered into the everyday life everywhere.
Lines Capri 25 are fascinating! Although it is not surprising that with such a history shipyard managed to create a “rapid” body with a stunning combination of elegant and flowing lines. It is difficult to find fault with something or find imperfections. Every detail is in its place, every centimeter of the boat so reconciled that the search for flaws just does not make sense.
New 8-foot Chris-Craft boat received the same vertical nose, like Capri 21. It is this form of housing was practiced more than 100 years ago at the most legendary boats made of wood. At the same time accuse Chris-Craft in thoughtless copying the style of the time, or create another replica “antique” just will not succeed. For contemporary reality has made a lot of adjustments to the appearance and finish. However, new materials blend in retro image.


Despite a slight family resemblance both Capri, there are fundamental differences between the 21 th and 25 th model.
For teak steps in the bow of the boat into the hidden entrance to a small cabin with toilet. Of course, it can be regarded only as a daily option during a short walk. However, such a space in the Capri 21 has not been provided because of its size.

The lounge area in the cockpit arranged tastefully and intelligently. Typically, the biggest drawback of such boats – close and limited space. Moreover, on how to organize a lunch or other similar snack is usually even out of the question. However, Chris-Craft quite gracefully and decided the issue. Two massive countertops, which quietly located on both sides, recline 90 degrees, forming a small area for a picnic. Furthermore, it is possible not only to stay on the stern couch, but also on rotary chairs. Such bucket seats, trimmed with quilted white leather and stainless steel frame, give an incredible comfort of passengers as the boat at high speeds, and just at the moments of relaxation.

Chris-Craft Capri 25 has received an entirely new control panel (on the Capri 21 shape and arrangement of the instrument panel is painfully reminiscent of a racing car cockpit). Generally, Capri-can be called an ideal instance, because this series allows the owner to experience the real taste of freedom. To steer, do not need a team: the management to handle even a novice. A high-speed characteristics of the 25th obviously delight. So, Capri 25 offered an incredible number of engine variants: Mercury Bravo III and Volvo Penta DuoProp, volume from 5.3 liters to 8.2 liters. and a power of 300 hp up to 430 hp The most “advanced” versions are equipped with an electronic throttle control (DTS) and the EVC system – a unified platform for motor control and drive. All of this allows for better handling, quick access to the planing mode, and, of course, lower fuel consumption and reduce emissions.
