Announcing the 2019 Chris-Craft Commander Club Photo Contest Winners

Sixty-Eight photos were submitted for this year's contest.  They were absolutely amazing, making selecting a top 3 an extremely difficult task for your Executive Committee. 

Thank you to all that submitted a photo to the contest and even if your photo was not in the top 3, it could appear on a cover of Styled In Fiberglass, the club's newsletter due out in November, or the 2020 Wall Calendars, which should be available in the next month or so.

In the coming days, an album will be assembled with all submissions for your viewing pleasure.

Below are this year's winners:

First Prize:  Dave & Nancy Bernard

"This is our granddog, Luna, on our daughter's 1969 27' Chris-Craft Commander Express on a picture-perfect sunset cruise in Brigantine, NJ."

Second Prize:  Ryan Venhuizen

"This is my favorite photo of the season (so far) of our Commander.  She is a 1968 35' Express Cruiser we have owned since 2016, named Old Fashion.  This photo was taken on a beautiful sunny June day on a calm Lake Michigan."

Third Prize:  Chad Durren

"I've been a CCC member for years but have never contributed a photo as my boat was undergoing a lengthy restoration.  This Summer, I completed a 6 year restoration of my 1969 19' Chris-Craft Commander Super Sport. "

WANTED: National Chris-Craft Commander Club Rendezvous Hosts!!

A National Rendezvous is a gathering of club members and their beloved Commanders. It is a great place to see some beautiful boats, make new friends and catch-up with old friends. It is always interesting to see what is different on the same model boat and a great place to get ideas, tips & tricks.

If you would like to host a rendezvous, the Executive Committee will assist you with ideas, registration, and anything else you might need.  

If your marina, or a marina near you, could house additional boats for a weekend and if you have several Commanders in your area, we encourage you to consider hosting a rendezvous.

Please contact Char Pike, at, with your questions.
