CHRIS CRAFT COMMANDER FORUM ® .......A photo-intensive technical reference file and ongoing newsletter regarding the original fiberglass Chris-Craft Commander series. This is an independent not-for-profit and non-commercial web site, not affiliated with the Chris Craft Commander Club ~~ or ~~ Chris-Craft Corporation. Our mission here is to "have fun and share information" about the Commander series (and those associated fiberglass boats on the Chris-Craft family tree) for your individual personal use, and by doing so help promote the good name of Chris-Craft, and help preserve, restore, and appreciate Chris-Craft boats. The main reference feature is the ever expanding MASTER INDEX File which contains what we believe to be the world's largest collection of documentation photos and technical information on the Chris-Craft Commander line of boats, (like these original brochure scans, featuring the iconic first 38 Commander styled by Fred Hudson, and many of the great Dick Avery renditions that followed) , (a huge collection of Chris-Craft 427 tuning and specification information), and a few words about how to use the forum.

We extend to you a cordial "WELCOME ABOARD !" Come on in, make yourself at home, we are a friendly group of enthusiasts, and we also appreciate the classic Chris Craft Roamer, Corsair, and Lancer boats too , as they are all on the same family tree and share much in common ! Just start by posting a note introducing yourself to the group, that's all it takes here (we don't ask for or retain any personal information here, because our intention is to just "have fun and share information".

Not many Lancers out there for sale

We've been looking casually for a Lancer, or a fiberglass CC Super Sport (1980ish inboard), or an inboard Corsair, the smaller the better in the 17 to 20-foot range, maybe could go 23. Not much pickings out there.

Found the blue 1971 in Cummings GA, bad transdrive, and a few others, but sheesh, not much to pick from (especially in SE USA) within reasonable striking distance.

Anyone knowing of a local boat for sale, lemme know, as ebay and the internet listings just don't have much. Not really interested in a bow rider, would go for a clean transdrive but prefer an inboard.

Could potentially go to $8000 but would naturally rather pay half that much. Found a beautiful glass Century that fits our needs, but just can't seem to warm up to owning a Century. Of course, a Commander would be great, but not in Montana!

Since Bill Thomas first posted the Lancer info here, I've been learning more about the series and they are pretty cool boats. Any glass CC inboard, including the glass Super Sports would work. Don't think I'll be able to afford an exotic XK but might spring for a XK-22 if the price is reasonable.

So many boats, so little time !
