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".

Info on Corinthian 266 or very similar

[I apologize in advance if this post violates any rules of the Commander Forum.]

I'm a novice boater.
I am interested in a 1983 Corinthian 266 that needs "some work".
ANY info on this or similar model is much appreciated.

Are there any owners/former owners of this model who have recommendations or can share experiences or direct me to other resources? (Or are selling theirs?...)

Thanks!!

Tom

WELCOME ABOARD

Hello and WELCOME ABOARD, your posting has been up a few days with no takers, but that just means we have not hooked one yet. This model is a later series than many of our classics but I suspect it is very similar to the 27 Commander as far as bottom profile, being a generally flattened deadrise, etc., but not sure. I think this model used a single GM small block, which makes it comparable again to the 27 Commander, the latter of which was offered with twins but not sure about the Corinthian.

There would be many similarities between the Commander and Corinthian series. Let us know how we can help. Send photos !!

best,

Paul

My understanding is Chris-Craft made 3 26' Corinthian models. Two had 2 engines; one had 1 engine (266).
Not sure why there are few around....
