New Model: Chris Craft 42 Commander

Chris Craft presents its new 42 Commander model.  A back in time return for Chris Craft with this new model, first for the Commander name which resurfaces after over four decades, and second for the Italian-American collaboration which this model brings again. As some of you might have noticed the Chris Craft 42 Commander is very much based on the Austin Parker 42 designed by Fulvio de Simoni and launched in 2009 by the Italian builder. But the Chris Craft 42 Commander is not just a new badge Austin Parker, looking skin deep it is more.  For example apart being powered by IPS pod drives an option previously unavailable on the Austin Parker, the Chris Craft 42 Commander also features a new interior with a guest three berth cabin located at midships.
