9th Edition of the CCCC Wall Calendar Available

Every year the CCCC publishes a new oversized wall calendar with the best Commander photography. The 9th (2015) edition is now available in our Dock Shop. Thanks to our print-on-demand technique for producing these highly popular calendars, you can select any starting month for your specific calendar.

Another novelty this year is that a selection of previous editions are available for purchase. Of course those editions are updated with calendar data so they will work in 2015 and 2016.

Club Anniversary

The Commander Club Turns 15, Commanders Turn 50

Fifteen years ago a handful of Commander owners found each other on the net and started an e-mail list to share ideas. Others quickly joined and the idea of forming  virtual boat club took shape. Today, the Chris Craft Commander Club is bigger, better and healthier than ever before with 1300 members from all parts of the globe.

As we pass this important milestone it seems right to highlight the people who made it all possible, the guys and gals who spent tons of time on the club, as founders, as contributors, event organizers and committee members. Take your time to review who these Commander "nuts" are and what they have done for our club in our Hall of Fame section.

This year it is also 50 years since the first fiberglass Commander, the 38' was introduced at the New York Boat Show.

Among the celebrations this year will be the biggest Commander Club Rendezvous ever and prestigious anniversary photo book. Stay tuned for more!
