About the Author

Nick Voulgaris III is an entrepreneur, writer, and avid sailor who is passionate about yacht restoration. He has owned and restored dozens of boats, including two vintage Chris-Crafts. He is the author of two previous Rizzoli books, Hinckley Yachts and The Seaside House. Crafted with the same passion and dedication as they were 143 years ago, Chris-Craft Boats continue to speak to boat enthusiasts everywhere. Ralph Lauren began his career in 1967, designing neckties under the label Polo. Today, his collections include menswear, womenswear, accessories, fragrance, and home. He has received numerous awards for his work in fashion, philanthropy, and humanitarian causes and is the only designer to receive the CFDA s four highest honors: Womenswear Designer of the Year, Menswear Designer of the Year, Retailer of the Year, and Lifetime Achievement.


"The must-have book features photos of more than 200 boats from never-before-published archival images to great color photos of collector and new boats as well as plans and ephemera from Chris-Craft's own collection. . . You may own one already or merely dream of doing so, but either way, this book is a worthy way to immerse yourself in the world of this iconic American brand."

"Timeless Beauty... Whether it's a beautiful varnished mahogany runabout cutting across a glassy lake or a sleek center console taking on a tumultuous inlet, Chris-Craft boats have an unmistakable look and impeccable style, in large part because the builder has been refining its designs for 144 years. The history of this iconic builder is chronicled in the pages of Nick Voulgaris III's Chris-Craft Boats: An American Classic. The 224-page story starts in Algonac, Michigan, in 1874, when Chris Smith built his first wooden boat at age 13. The rest of the Chris-Craft story spans world wars, economic crises and political upheavals, and includes photographs of hundreds of models produced by the company over the decades. The stunning photography in this hardcover edition makes this book an excellent addition to any coffee table."
-- Soundings "Chock-a-block with beautiful photography and iconic boats, this is another potential resident of the coffee table that boaters will find irresistible."
-- Points East: The Boating Magazine for Coastal New England
