Captain's Report

Parti Kraft Celebration 250 Parti Deck
With a LOA of 26'2” (7.97 m) and an 8'6" (2.6 m) beam, your Parti Deck can hold up to 10 people on two decks.

Built for the Long Haul

Part of the attraction with Parti Kraft boats is their tough build. Tubes are multi-chambered and 25” (63.5 cm) in diameter, with the deck supported every 16” (40.64 cm). All cross channels bolted to saddle brackets to reduce movement and ensure stability. All hardware is stainless steel and rails are anodized aluminum. Parti Kraft is confident enough in their build integrity that they stand behind their products with a lifetime warranty on the tubes, rail systems and under-decks converts to 10 years from the original date of purchase to a second owner. All vinyl and carpet is warranted for 5 years. Some build options to consider are a dual battery switch, particularly if you intend to spend long hours on the hook with 12V accessories running. We would include the rub rail with black vinyl insert, not only for its looks but also protection against the dock. If you consistently load your Parti Deck up to capacity, then a tube upgrade to 27” (38. cm) would be in order as well as the addition of the lifting strakes for improved performance.

A Parti Layout

Any walkthrough of the Parti Kraft Celebration 250 Parti Deck clearly has to begin with the most obvious feature, the upper deck. It’s largely what you’d expect it to be, a large open area for sitting or sunning. We think its also adds a perfect combination that any boat needs, a mix of sun and shade. Spending all day baking on deck is no one’s idea of a good time, but having the opportunity to get the sun when you want and shade when you don’t is a winning slam dunk.

The upper deck offers a secluded haven from the bustling party down below - it's a wide-open space.

Access to the upper deck is via a ladder in the port aft quarter. Bring a towel or beach chairs.

Main Deck

However, it’s on the main deck that the Parti Kraft Celebration 250 Parti Deck really shows her stuff. Four entry points with 30" (76 cm) gates allow for access whether docking, beaching, or anchoring. The stern features a bar, complete with comfortable seats, drink holders, and a massive cooler.

There are dual chaise lounges forward, with flip down arm rests, dual density foam cushions and thick vinyls. Amidships is a comfortable bench seat, all within conversation range of the helm seat. There are trash receptacles, a 25 qt carry-on cooler, and plenty of storage beneath the seats.

The captain gets to ride in comfort as well. The tilting helm seat features swivel and slider adjustments, self leveling arms, and a built-in headrest. The helm station features a graphite trim dash panel. Tilt steering is standard. We love that there is a master power switch for the panel, and a utility storage tube.

The helm panel has full instrumentation including an hour meter. That’s something that is often optional on other toons, but it's a pivotal feature for keeping track of maintenance and fuel consumption rates. We also appreciate that there is a magnetic compass as standard. Options include a digital depth finder, an adjustable pedestal and base which adds up and down adjustments, power assist steering, and a trim gauge.

Customizable Parti Platform

You can make the 250 Parti Deck yours. There is a vast array of options to allow for customizing your boat so that it fits your wants and needs. Certainly not everyone parti’s the same way. Let’s take a look at some of the choices available to you.

A deep cooler with pop-up rotatable speakers.

Starting at the bar, you can opt to remove the cooler and go with a 12V refrigerator (that optional dual battery switch is already starting to look good). If you crave margaritas then you may want to consider a 12V blender but you’ll have to forgo the stainless bar sink if you do. If you’re entertaining during game day, order the drop-down DVD player and look outside the Parti Kraft options list for a satellite receiver.

Notice the custom made glass holders. The engraved glasses are options and the holders are lighted. The stainless sink features a hand-pump faucet. Why not offer a 12V pump, Parti Kraft?

What day on the water is complete without grilling? Toss in an entertainment center with built-in stainless steel gas grill including an additional fire extinguisher and cooler storage. For tunes, stereo options run from the basic radio and CD player to a full blown Sony amphitheater upgrade with additional interior speakers, subwoofer; and amplifier, IPod adapter and holder, and Sirius Satellite upgrade

We can’t imagine a day on the water without grilling some steaks and shrimp. This grill is gas powered and includes an extra fire extinguisher for safety.

Since guests will be getting wet we’d opt for vinyl decks and snap-in carpeting. We’d like to have Parti Kraft consider making the Porta-Potti and changing room standard features. Parti Kraft has certainly come of age in their 50+ years in the business, and we think they have a knack for getting the combination of comfort and functionality down right. With the addition of the upper deck, they’ve taken an already popular model, and made it that much more attractive to own, and enjoy the bragging rights that come with it.
