Successful Anniversary Rendezvous at Huron

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!

As of today we have launched a new Classifieds section that will replace the old one and hopefully be much more user friendly and certainly much more reliable.

Member Spotlight: Huntley

The 38' Commander was Chris-Craft's inaugural fiberglass cruiser. Bryan and Julie Huntley are owners of one of the very first ones, and it could possibly be the oldest fiberglass Commander in the club.Read Dick Morland's story about the Huntleys here and find out if this also is the only Commander with a pizza stove onboard!
