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!

Living on a Commander

We know Commander enthusiasts live for their boat, but few actually live on their boat. Ron & Margret Ritter are one of those couples. Doing so since 1993 they inevitably encountered their share of tough challenges. You think having your boat/home braking loose in a storm is bad. Wait until you experienced your dock breaking loose with boat and all!

Read Membership Chair Marcia Elkins' thrilling story about the Ritters here.


We recently launched a new Classifieds section that will replace the old one and hopefully be much more user friendly and certainly much more reliable.

 Read all about it here.


Have you ever had your previous boat come back to haunt you? 3 Replies

This story is just too weird and I had to share it. Going back in time to 1988 when we first got married and moved to Tampa I made the suggestion that we should buy a boat. Living in a warm climate we could enjoy it all year long. After doing a lot…Continue

Classifieds 1 Reply

I wish there was a way to have it listed by boat. 60' Commander, 55' Commander.... That way if I'm only looking for 1966-1970 47' Commander parts I would not have to look at everything.
