Chris-Craft 38 Commander

31 EXPRESS with flybridge,


Here is my first attempt at putting an ad together to sell one of the Chris Crafts. Any comments would be apprecitated.

1968 Chris Craft Commander Express. 31′ Twin 454 engines. New gas tanks. Flybridge removed for transport. Hull preped, barrier coated and ready for bottom coat. No blisters. Interior ready for restoration. Main helm, Deck and hatches in excellent condition. All glass is there. Great Project boat at an affordable price. May keep boat in current marina in Shady Side, MD by paying future storage fee of $124 per month. Call Jerry at 703 6404 or contact me at

Serious buyers only.

Thanks and you can call me whenever.

Jerry C. Namken, Ph.D.

Note from Paul:

Hello all, as you know this is not a commercial boating site but we do go out of our way to help our Forum Regular Participants and Contributors in many ways, as a sort of a give-back-thank-you for having contributed. One of those ways is to assist with showcasing a Chris Craft project boat that a member may have for sale and someone else may enjoy or save, and this is the case here.

If you want an idea of what it would take to bring this one back, I have included some links here as a reference point. I won’t say it is easy, I won’t say it is inexpensive either, but some people just WANT to start with a shell and move up the scale from there. For them, there is no point in spending the money for a user boat when all they really want is the basic hull to start with. Here is one such restoration example of this very same boat. As I said, not for the faint of heart, but LOOK what Don did with his.

31 Express restoration and 454 re-power, Don Hancock

The boat is a 31 Express with flybridge. We have several members here on The Forum with these boats and they are sea-worthy and fast. The RESTORATION OF THE FIBERGLASS CHRIS CRAFT COMMANDER, book, (and this forum as well) has many examples of boats that started out in this condition or perhaps were taken down far below this point as a starting point for total restoration, and some of them are among the finest examples of their model line on the water today. The point is. if you are looking for a 31 Express with flybridge, perhaps this one is already taken down to a point where you would go anyway to start your own restoration. Check it out, not for the faint of heart, but guys you KNOW we’ve seen more extensive efforts around here from time to time.

In addition, here are some links that tell more about the 31′ Commander hull, history, power, etc.
