About the Club

The CCCC is a unique club that started out as a pure online discussion forum and e-mail list in February year 1999. Today, the club consists of more than 4,000 members worldwide and continues to grow.

Over the years the CCCC expanded it's activities to highly appreciated and attended rendezvous gatherings once a year, several local meets, newsletters, Commander oriented merchandise, and last but not least our unique Super Disc full of archived information covering virtually every aspect of owning and maintaining a Commander.

Most members are from United States but there are also members from Australia, Sweden, Italy, France and Great Britain.

The CCCC is headed  by an Executive Committee, presently comprised of six members. The chair, the Chief Commander, is elected by the members for a two year term. The rest of the Executive Committee members are also elected by the members for two year terms.

The members of the executive committee are presented here.

The complete bylaws governing the club is available for review here.

Our Mission

The Commander Club is a virtual club, existing on the Internet. The club is a non-stock, non-profit 501(c)7 corporation dedicated to the preservation, study and appreciation of the classic fiberglass Commander boats built by Chris Craft Corp. Our goal is to inform and enlighten owners or enthusiasts about these classic fiberglass boats. Members shall be Commander owners, enthusiasts or other persons who support the mission of the club.

Cornerstones of Success

The CCCC has expanded and prospered since it's inauguration. The key success factors can be attributable to:

  •  Knowledgeable members
  •  Willingness to share
  •  No dues
  •  Focus on Commanders
  •  Online environment

Knowledgeable members: The club is fortunate to have many knowledgeable members. Most are hobby enthusiasts who learned by doing, but we also have members who are currently or were in the boating industry or services. Some even worked for Chris Craft during the production of the Commanders.

Willingness to share: Knowledgeable members would mean nothing if they didn't share their know-how. No matter what question you have, there are plenty of members willing to help you out, promptly.

No dues: You can be a member without paying anything.

Focus on Commanders: It is a way to keep up the interest and the commitment. Non-Commander topics are politely suppressed by the member community themselves. 

Online environment: The Club would not have been possible without the internet. So much is dependent on the speed of getting answers and the ease of communicating 24/7, any place on earth.

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 rendezvous.commanderclub@gmail.com, with your questions.
