Comments:

Together with the 41' Commander this is the most compact true double cabin Commander. There is a separate cabin aft and another separate forward cabin, each with an adjoining head, the aft one also has a shower.

This model was sold with a soft top which makes it the largest Commander available with a open cockpit. As is evident from the photos it was also available with a hard top dog house.

A distinctive difference compared to other Commanders with hard top is that some adults will not have enough headroom under the hard top to stand up apart from the immediately behind the helm where there is a small well to put your feet in. On the other hand there is ample headroom in the cabin and in the below deck gangway between the salon and the aft cabin.
