One of the most recognizable boats ever produced is the Chris-Craft Cobra. This fun speed boat is from the era of big fins and wings. They were only made one year…1955 and only 106 were made (55 21’, and 51 18’). It was also the company’s first experiment with fiberglass, the distinctive gold engine cover with the fin. They never expected this model to be a large seller due to its limited seating capacity and overall utility, but just the same it’s a darn hot-looking boat and one of the most sought after classics today. Even though a few more 18’ models were made, the 21’ is the most collectable.
