Abstract

Chris-Craft Corporation built the Holland plant in 1939 and offered a 15½-foot runabout model and 30-foot cruiser during 1940-1941. During World War Two, the plant produced four kinds of military landing craft for operations in Europe. The plant was closed in January 1989 and operations moved to Pompano Beach, Florida. The collection includes a United States Navy “E” award program for Chris-Craft Corporation, June 15, 1942; 1957 and 1967 Roamer Yachts Division brochures, a ca. 1971 Chris-Craft brochure illustrating their complete line, and newspaper clippings (1942-2011).
