New Model: Chris-Craft 36 Corsair Hard Top

This new Chris-Craft 36 Corsair Hard Top is the third style to come from this since 2003 produced hull in this long standing builder fleet.  The Hard Top adds up to the standard 36 Corsair, and the European Edition with different cockpit presented last year. The Chris-Craft 36 Corsair Hard Top is the most cruiser friendly and as the title say presents a covered area for the outside which covers 80% of the exterior cockpit deck. The deck layout of the Hard Top follows that of the standard Corsair model with two L-shaped lounging settees to aft, and double port and starboard forward facing passenger and helmsman seats.  Below the 36 Corsair sleeps four persons in a convertible Vee saloon which converts to a double berth to fore, and a separate cabin with a double bed to aft.  A galley and separate shower head is featured in the middle of the cabin area. Six different petrol gas and diesel engine choices are on offer for the 36 Corsair Hard Top.  The power start with the least powerful being a Volvo 330hp diesel, and the largest choice a 420hp petrol gas again from the Sweden engine builder.
