"BLUEBLOOD" has benefited from the comprehensive care of her second and very knowledgeable owner and his Yacht Management group. The boat was acquired  in 2015 and after some initial use an extensive refit / re-power initiative was undertaken and completed in 2016. Essentially they set out to correct and improve nearly all aspects of the vessel. Although Chris Craft is a high quality build there were numerous areas identified that left room for improvement and improve they did! The work was performed by well known and respected specialists who took the time needed to ensure every detail was carefully executed within the ideal working conditions of the well lit and orderly shop. No expense was spared, no improvement overlooked in the effort to add to the family fleet the Chris Craft Corsair runabout like no other!
