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".

Restorable, but....

Lancers must have much more value in Europe or this seller is off his rocker! I recently purchased a 23 Lancer with operating engine, original operating Volvo Outdrive and trailer for $500.00 US. I just needed the windshield, the Lancer badges and spray rail caps. I resold it to a local high end marina that is converting it to a custom teak decked runabout. Maybe shipping from the U.S. to Europe has the prices inflated on these hulls?

Molto raro in Italia !!!

That model may not have been built in Italy, not sure. Therefore a true inboard like that would be molto raro in Italia. happy.gif

Someone could put a turbocharged Iveco diesel in that !!

Are we sure about that?

5.000 Eu is what I used to see on Invoices from our European vendors and they meant 5,000 not 5.0 . As it happens, my advice for either price is the same.

Run, Forest RUN!!!
