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 !
That's actually a very interesting model. The side walkways have been eliminated and this gives more room to the interior. I have only been aboard one of these boats. It's all Commander, but the interior has been lightened in light value because of the more modern times. I would love to see more photos of the interior, etc.
This design change puts the 38 in a much more modern posture than the original 1963 design did (first produced in 64), and we have to remember the days when this boat was facing more modern competition from other manufactures. The design stayed the same from 1964 until 1970 when it changed, so that's a six year run of the same thing before a change. Thankfully they kept the same hull from the rail down, because there is not much that could be done to improve on that!
