She is essentially unmolested. The interior is mahogany and in great shape. We put in an upgraded toilet 2 years ago and the Naval Architect had added a decent sized holding tank. She had a great survey 5 years ago when we bought her. Not sure what we would want for her.
Thanks for the kind comments. Exterior is mostly original gel coat other than the foredeck was painted when the PO added the remote windlass (which is wonderful). It has a furuno radar/gps/depth finder, a radio and all original gauges. No genset, hvac or refrigerator. It has freshly rebuilt 327qs that are raw water cooled, 2 new 80gal aluminum fuel tanks, new breaker panel and she has been mostly rewired. She was rescued and refurbished by a naval architect and his father several years ago. I am the 2nd owner since then. The ice box can be converted to a refrigerator, we just haven't had the need to do so. We don't stay on the boat so haven't needed hvac. I have been on lake Murray in July...hvac would be needed in SC!!!
I have considered selling her from time to time, but her classic lines are hard to part with. I suppose everything is for sale for the right price. What would I replace her with though? I don't know if you're on Lake Murray or another lake or the ocean, but you picked a great model to go after. The 31 has a timeless look, easy to handle and will cruise pretty efficiently at a decent speed. Ours has been a great day boat here in the Les Cheneaux Islands. I had a custom trailer made for her and can easily mover her to and from storage with my Tahoe. Just a great boat.
The 2018 Chris-Craft Commander Club National Rendezvous is in the books and it was a great time!!
The city of Mentor, Ohio and the Lawnfield Inn & Suites were wonderful hosts. A special Thanks to Rob Kneen, the local member sponsor, and Char Pike for the hours of hard work put in organizing and coordinating an amazing weekend.
