The new Chris-Craft Corsair 32 was named Best Sport Boat at the Shanghai International Boat Show in April.

The announcement was made at the fourth annual Asian Marine & Boating Awards Gala Dinner at the Intercontinental Expo Hotel in Pudong, in Shanghai, China. Chris-Craft said the Corsair 32 beat competitors such as the Riva Iseo 27. The Shanghai show is the largest boat show in Asia and more than 300 brands of boats were showcased during the April 11-14 event.

"It is fabulous to be recognized in this dynamic and important market,” Chris-Craft chairman Stephen Julius said in a statement. “We are very proud of our dealer, Xiamen Blue Ocean Yachts, and their excellent representation of the brand."

The Corsair 32 is suited to accommodate overnight excursions, but is also built for day cruising.
