Especially if you can afford to have someone keep up the bright work:

theres lots of those old lads around here too......I know its the way they came but they should ditch the white hull, leave them natural wood, looks much better.

Amazing the difference in todays 50 footer to yesteryear's 50 footer.
Wouldn't mind kicking back with a Moosehead on the back deck for that ride.

Probably watched that video a dozen times since it was uploaded.

I have long admired these old Chris Craft cabin cruisers and boats of similar design.

It seems a shame that this style of boat has completely given way to the European express variety that dominates the market.

This article makes a great point.

Here is a real neat interview with the designer of Chris Craft's first Commander, the 38.

Imagine how great these cruisers would be with a true deep-V bottom, and a pair of 540s with Volvo DP drives or Arnesons.

1952 models

1954 models

These old wooden cruisers would be excellent in fiberglass.
