Chris Craft 42 Commander Series Boat Review

Chris Craft 42 Commander Series Boats

The Cabin Cruiser You Have Been Dreaming About

The chance to get out on the water and enjoy the day is something that should never be missed. However, once the sun fades away, it is time to find a place to bed down for the night. If you happen to be on any of the Chris Craft 42 Commander Series boats for sale today, all that is needed is to step below. There are many different cabin cruisers for sale, but none have the same impeccable design and attention to every luxurious detail as this Chris Craft model.

Power and Performance

The beauty of the Chris Craft 42 Commander series boats for sale can be seen throughout, but unlike some other cabin cruisers that utilize bulky outboard motors for power, Chris Craft uses the same high quality inboard engines to allow the swim ladder of the vessel to be easy to access and basically cleaning up the look of the entire boat. This Chris Craft cabin cruiser is powered by twin Volvo IPS 435 HP Straight Shaft or the option of Volvo Penta IPS 600 D6-435 HPs. The choice is yours, but both deliver the high quality ride that Volvo engines are known for.

Space for Everyone

A quick look down into the interior cabin of the Chris Craft 42 Commander boat will show that a lot of attention has been given to the layout of the space. The standard V-berth offers space for the owners to enjoy a restful night sleep, but there is also a guest cabin space as well. Within this area a small walkway separates a full size berth from the twin and the designers have even thought to include a small seating area just above the cabin space. The head area is a full head with shower toilet and sink, but the shower is on the opposite side of the toilet and sink. This can be a significant bonus when traveling with multiple people. Guests can shower without tying up the toilet keeping everyone happy.

The interior cabin is primarily for sleeping, so there is no galley in the space, but that is not a problem as most of the action will take place within the expansive interior helm station. The area features the ability to fully enclose the helm station via the glass doors in the rear of the cabin, so when it is time to sit and watch a movie with family and friends, the touch of a button brings up the large flat screen. The seating wraps around to offer the maximum amount of comfort and the designers have even thought to include a convertible dining table that expands and raises easily from coffee table height to a full dining table. When it is time to have a meal, the prep area with sink, two burner cooktop, refrigerator, and microwave. Even when the weather is bad, you and your guests can enjoy the comforts of the interior cabin space.

The Rear Deck

An additional cooking space with grill, refrigerator drawer, and sink is located just outside the helm station to maximize your ability to entertain, but entertaining is not always about food onboard the Chris Craft 42 Commander Series boats. This Chris Craft boat model provides ample seating for all of the guests as well as a transom door giving access to the expansive teak swim deck. A swim ladder is easy to deploy for access on and off the vessel, but the most remarkable feature for this area is used when docking the vessel. A gang plank is automatically deployed from the rear of the vessel along with a hand rail, so you and your guests can board and disembark the vessel easily and safely. It is the seemingly small luxurious features that add that little bit of class to the Chris Craft boat brand that sets them apart from all others.
