Not only is Chris-Craft launching a new boat model, the Corsair 36 Hard Top, but it's the boatbuilder's first model with a sunroof. For such a monumental first, Chris-Craft chose Webasto Thermo & Comfort North America's Series 60 Marine Roof.

"Developing the new hard top for our Corsair 36 with the Webasto team was a rewarding experience," said Chris Collier, VP of engineering, Chris-Craft Corporation. "Their series 60 skylight performed as promised and has so far, met all expectations. We plan to continue with this partnership as we further develop and expand our product line. We chose Webasto over competitor products because of ease of installation, larger overall daylight opening and the customer service relationship."

A Webasto Series 60 Marine Roof adds open air pleasure to any craft. The roof is operated using an automotive-style mechanism that lifts the panel up before sliding, avoiding unnecessary wear to the seal. Webasto offers flush mount and top mount sunroof models.
"Chris-Craft is a top boatbuilder in the industry and we're proud that they selected our Series 60 on their Corsair 36 Hardtop," said David Wollard, Webasto director marine division. "By choosing our marine roof, Chris-Craft has recognized our technological leadership and reliability."

The Series 60 features a 100% watertight seal, large opening and smooth operation. This marine roof can be integrated into the deck design and can match a hatch design. Chris-Craft's Corsair 36 Hard Top features the company's trademark tumblehome aft and classic forward flair, and stainless steel hardware and thru-hull fittings. It also has an extended fiberglass swim platform with three-step stainless swim ladder. An entertainment center with wet bar and spacious U-shaped aft seating help make any day on the water a great one.
