Broker's Comments

This Chris-Craft 422 Commander has been apparently well-maintained and would benefit only from some minimal exterior cosmetic attention. This is reputedly one of the best hull designs of the size and type, with excellent performance and sea keeping traits. A large flybridge, a large cockpit, plenty of power, and an extensive equipment list provide you the ability to fish or cruise comfortably immediately.
