Manufacturer Provided Description
The Chris-Craft 248 Express Cruiser is the result of Chris-Craft's experience in providing boat owners with giant-size features in compact packages. The 248 has an amazing array of convenience features for an express cruiser of its size. It sleeps four with a roomy forward V-berth, plus it offers a dinette table that converts to a double bed. It has a generously proportioned galley with stove, sink, icebox, and ample cabinets. Its head compartment has a portable toilet, vanity sink, and hand-held shower. The list of standard features is exciting. There are also some exciting options for extended overnight cruising usually found only on much larger craft: air conditioning, a water heater, and shorepower.
