The credit for the quality of her outfitting and finish goes to Chris-Craft's craftsmen and its management team. Instead of relying on traditional vendors and suppliers for the hundreds of parts that are used in the construction of the 36, Bob Greenberg, Chris-Craft's VP of operations, sought out innovative products that complemented her design. From her perforated aluminum dashboard and custom gauges to her Italian interior hardware, the focus is on quality and style, not simply cost. "We are always coming up with new ideas-the challenge is figuring out how to make them work," says Greenberg. The blue glass countertop in the 36's head is a good example. "It looks fantastic, but it just didn't drop in there-it took a lot of engineering and cooperation with our vendors to make it right." On deck the 36 is trimmed with custom-cast highly polished stainless steel hardware. The Heritage Package adds the finishing touch with a teak-sheathed cockpit sole, foredeck and swim platform.
