Cruising inland waterways, playing on the lake, and shuttling guests
from yacht to shore, the Callinectes 16 is a delight for the captain
as well as onlookers.
Incorporating flowing curves, rich varnished wood, and chromed deck
jewels, this runabout resembles the classic Chris-Craft and Riva of
yesteryear. Callinectes Boatworks adds modern components to maximize
enjoyment and time on the water. The fiberglass hull is fitted with
a laid mahogany deck, interior, and veneered transom, surrounding the
captain and passengers with vibrant varnished wood — without the
time-consuming maintenance of traditional wood hulls. Powered by a high-output
low displacement turbo-charged engine coupled to a jet drive, the Callinectes
16 Runabout offers a powerful and elegant ride that combines extra safety
features with high fuel efficiency and low emissions.

Designed as a runabout for protected waters and as a yacht
tender, the 16 has a modern running surface incorporating a full length
chine for a dry, stable, and efficient ride. The nearly flat aft running
surface common on runabout that cause pounding and rider discomfort
is replaced with a 10° transom deadrise to soften the ride and improve
straight line tracking.
Weighing in under 1100 pounds, the Callinectes 16 is easy
to transport and store on a davit or lift.
