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 !

That boat should be restored to original condition

Response to Re: Not many of these were ever made, not many are left

In order for it to be all it can be, the boat must be restored to original condition. Any customization will just degrade the condition and desirability of the boat. Installing an outboard on it would be a crime! In new condition, it could be used anyhere on the Riviera in Southern Spain or France with great style, also in Veince and so many other locations where people are very conscious about boats and boating style. This boat has a high style that is almost non-existant anywhere due to the fact that is is obviously an Italian design and it is so rare. I guess we should add a serious FOR SALE section here in order to get the word out, as there are several boats for sale within the pages of this forum now, but you may have to hunt for them a bit. This is not an expensive boat, but is it a very cool boat, and someone with an eye for Italian style will appreciate it. In Croatia you don't have too much of a market for this, and it is interesting how the boat made it from Italy to Croatia, because someone obviously had some fun with it in the past.

Regards,

Paul
