SOLD 1967 Chris Craft Commander 42' loaded with new Electronics $29,900

Health issues are leading us to sell our Commander located in South Haven, Michigan.  

Purchased Fall, 2016, upgrades include Garmin GPsMap 7612xsv, Garmin GR51M-THP Transducer (pair), Garmin Panoptix Forward Transducer,  Garmin GMR 24 xHD Radome, all new batteries, Fix mounted VHF Radio, and TV/DVD combo.

The boat is in very good condition.  We just completed a cruise from South Haven to Leland, Michigan without incident.  The boat could not have handled better.

The salon has been completely renovated and is roomy and spectacular to look at with all new teak and holly floors, mahogany custom bench style seating with comfortable and stylish cushions and matching custom blinds.  The galley has a full refrigerator, juice bar, electric stove and 3 way oven.

Even the stanchions are re-chromed. 

Newer full canvas can completely enclose you for chilly days or be removed in sections for as little or as much cover as desired.

Additionals: autopilot, vacuum flush heads, 4 fenders in baskets, windlass, dinghy davits, trim tabs, swim platform, ladders, up to date safety equipment.

The boat is in the water at South Haven Municipal Marina until around October 15, then stored in doors.

Greg, Not sure how it all works but you can call or text us at 269-217-8237 when you get the chance and talk to my husband, Joe.  He said to tell you the mileage is around 2200 and that the engines were compression tested and are all good.  There is all new electronics, wiring, distributer, etc.  The transmissions are solid - no noise.  Sue

I can tell she is a well maintained boat, you price is more that fair actually too fair!

Hi Sue, Mary and I have had a chance to look at the photos together and we've talked it over seriously. While your price is certainly right and the boat is very close to our "ideal", we realize this opportunity is unfortunately about 3 years too early for our situation. We hope to someday retire on a boat in Door County, WI... but it's still too far off for us to pull the trigger right now.

I'm sure you'll have no problem selling her and someone is going to get a REALLY nice boat!

Best wishes with the sale and sincere best wishes regarding your health concerns.

Thank you!

Thank you so much.  We purchased the boat from a friend of ours who passed away a two years ago and have over twice what we are charging into her (not including slip and maintenance) because we feel the same way.  We are hoping a good price will help to sell quickly.  There is always the fear people will think something is wrong when there is a low price...
