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".

Response to same boat

We're pleased to have a reader and parrticipant in Sardinia, and we'll help any way we can. The info you will find here on this particular thread is probably the single largest bit of information that exists on the world wide web about this particular boat, anywhere. Before we saw photos most of us here in the US did not even know this model existed. Thankfully, we have Herb Pocklington as a friend of the forum, and he is the man who built the CC factory in Italy and was in charge of producing your model.

There may be some additional bits of info you could find on the international ebay web site from time to time, regarding old sales brochures, but as far as we know here in the US, your model of boat is exceedingly rare and it is unlikely any ever made it to the US. I see the power ratings listed in the brochure Herb sent me, and this indicates the boats were probaly equipped with the Buick based V6 or small block Chevrolet based V8 motors. Parts are still available, but sometimes you have to hunt a bit for them.

If you are able to, send us some photos. If you are unable to post them here on The Forum, then email them to me at the following address
