For 1956 and for a few years afterwards Chris Craft took their 21’ 11” by 7’ 11” classic wood hull 22’ Continental model and almost all of its cockpit and deck layout and brought to market a 22’ 7” by 7’ 11” wood hull Continental 23’ model. Shown here is a restored 1956 Chris-Craft Continental, an unrestored one, and one that is for sale.
The show is produced by The Rim of the World Historical Society with the assistance of the Arrowhead Lake Association, the Lake Arrowhead Chamber of Commerce, the Antique & Classic Boat Society, the Up The Hill Woodie Club and Lake Arrowhead Village.
I remember that day like it was yesterday… Standing on the dock wishing I owned that Chris-Craft Riviera so I could go boating with my pals… Wait, that was yesterday! More and more of their glistening natural wood hulls were slicing through the waters with their unique rumble. There were a small handful of wooden boat manufacturers at the time, among them Gar Wood, Chris-Craft and Hacker Craft.
They never expected this model to be a large seller due to its limited seating capacity and overall utility, but just the same, it’s a cool-looking boat and one of the most sought after classics today.
