The company that is now referred to as Chris-Craft, was started on Point du Chene, in Algonac, Michigan, a small town on the St. Clair River. It was here that Christopher Columbus Smith built his first boat in 1874 at age 13. These Smith-built boats were referred to as "punts" or "skiffs." With his reputation as a master boat builder on the grow, Chris joined with his brother Hank in 1881 to begin producing boats full time. As demand for their dependable hunting craft increased, the duo started building boats in rapid succession, perhaps laying the ground work for their future as builders of "standardized" runabouts. In 1910 The Smith Ryan boat company is formed - focused on building fast economically priced runabouts for mass market distribution. Chris Craft is recognized as the worlds largest builder of mahogany constructed power boats and recreational power boats. In 1941 Chris Craft began building patrol boats, utility launches, and rescue vessels for the United States Nave and Army. In 1955 Chris Craft manufactured its first fiberglass boat. In 1971 they completed the transition to fiberglass products and built the last mahogany boat which was a 57 foot Constellation. Today Chris Craft continue to design and build premium boats and yachts, remaining passionately true to the legend of Chris Craft.
