Following the successful launch of three new designs last year, Chris-Craft will be showcasing its all-new 2013 Carina 20 at the Miami International Boat Show. It is a new version of luxury encompassed in a boat of only 20 feet. The design borrows from the brand's DNA with the vertical bow and stainless steel bow plates reminiscent of the 1920s. It also includes the reverse transom that is a signature of all Chris-Craft designs.

The new Carina 20 with its classic Chris-Craft design and styling

Special new features include a frameless windshield, graphite metallic paint finish, diamond-patterned upholstery fabric and custom deck hardware exclusive to this new model. It speaks both to the classics of the past but with a modern and forward thinking appeal while remaining unkmistakably Chris-Craft.

Another vertical-bow edition is expected to be launched in the summer of 2013 and this, it expected, will have a closed deck.
