This is the only Chris Craft (series) ever built on a deep-V Hunt-
designed offshore hull. With a steep 21-degree of deadrise at the 
transom and six lifting strakes, this boat is able to run with the
 big boys when the weather gets nasty. Engines rest on inverted
 aluminum mounts, very heavy duty. Twin 250-hp gas engines will cruise 
the Chris 30 TF at 18 knots and reach a top speed of 25 to 26 knots. Trim tabs are required for proper running angles.
