Chris-Craft signs deal with Vessel Vanguard

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.

Vessel Vanguard said Chris-Craft owners will have information about their boat and all of its maintenance needs, with timely alerts and emails to help keep all systems running in top condition.

"We distribute our boats all over the world and VesselVanguard has the unique capacity to address our customers’ maintenance needs in an intuitive and centralized solution,” Chris-Craft president and CEO Steve Heese said in a statement.

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.”
