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 FS: Very nice 1973 XK22

It's no secret in certain circles the XK-22 is a highly desirable classic sportboat so I'm a little baffled that this one hasn't found a new home. I know of several Facebook closed groups swarming with avid fiberglassic fans where hanging yours out there for sale I would expect to be like a piranha frenzy. Just do a search, request membership and give it a go if you haven't already. I agree with Paul, don't lower the price as I strongly suspect that is not the issue based on what we know about the boat and the market.

You may have done this but I'd post that ad in several CL markets known to be hotbeds of classic boating like around the Great Lakes, West coast, NW, Upper E. Coast and even Florida. Serious buyers looking for that one boat like this will not be dissuaded, speaking as one of them who drove 26 hours RT to nab ours. It's also not uncommon for our brethren across the Pond to bring them over at great expense to ship and overcome all the import taxes, duties, inspections, BS, etc.

Just some food for thought in hopes that boat soon finds the right buyer.
