Maintenance management company Vessel Vanguard will provide a two-year subscription for the owners of new Chris-Craft models larger than 32 feet.

Key features include a digital library of equipment manuals, a customized maintenance and inspection calendar for all onboard systems and functionality to track and oversee all service tasks.

We want to create the greatest boating experience possible. Chris-Craft does it by building a quality vessel and Vessel Vanguard make it easy for owners to keep that vessel running.”
