Chris Craft


Commander Sport Cruiser

1968 - 1972

42 Commander

This model is a unique design which blends the advantages of a salty sport fisherman with those of a luxury sedan cruiser. The result is an unusually versatile, comfortable, and sensible pleasure boat. Sleeping capacity is six. There are two private staterooms forward, plus a lavatory with and enclosed stall shower. The spacious deckhouse has a helm seat, and L-shaped convertible lounge, and a coffee table that may be raised to normal table height. A well-planned galley with electric appliances and plenty of storage room just forward. At the aft end of the deckhouse, sliding doors open to extend the entertaining area into the cockpit. A Command Bridge is standard. Power choices include twin 300-hp V-8's or 258-hp diesels; speeds to 29 miles per hour. Cruise Control is standard on diesel models, and optional on gasoline-powered versions.
