Bring offers, owner is ready for offers. This boat is ready to take the family on a summer cruise, fish the fall on the lakes or fish your way south to warmer climates. In the late 60s, fiberglass was still an unknown quantity for the most part. The general rule was to use a lot. That is why these boats may well outlast their builders, owners and their owners children. A true classic, the 35 Commander Sports Cruiser is a true sport fish with the amenities of a cruiser. Big cockpit for fishing, entertaining or just relaxing. Nice sized salon with dining space for 6 with a deck chair or two pressed into service around the high/low drop leaf table. Two staterooms will sleep 4 very comfortably with storage space for gear. A full size shower and head with built in vanity, electric head and basin. Built like tanks, these Commanders are as strong today as the day they were built. This boat has been on the Lakes for her entire life and has been maintained very well. At the same time she has remained true to the vision Chris Craft had when she was designed. You will not find any drastic modifications on this Commander. With such a timeless design, none are needed. If you need a boat with a solid feel, great ride, comfortable accommodations and a price tag you can live with, here it is. The owner is willing to look at offers. Come take a look, you will be impressed.
