General Details

The Commander Super Sport was a rare early fiberglass performance boat by Chris-Craft. It is the forerunner to a later model boat called the XK-19. At that time, fiberglass was a new material for the company that had made its name as the largest manufacturer of wooden boats prior to 1969. Chris-Craft did not know how this new material and technology would hold up or if it would stand the test of time, so they generally over-engineered the hull. This particular hull was designed for Chris-Craft by Jim Wynne of 1960 race boat fame.

There were 96 hulls made, 37 of which were made in the V-drive design. The remaining boats were made in I/O fashion. This boat is hull #17.

In the 1980's it was bought and transported to New Zealand, where the New Zealand National Water Ski Team re-powered it with a 455 Olds and coupled it with a Berkeley Jet Drive. This was a well known combination for the purposes of re-powering a small sized runabout. The V-Drive version of the Super Sport was reported to have a cruising speed of 35mph and a top speed of 45mph. When the Deep-V hull of the Super Sport was coupled with the 455 Olds and given the thrust of the Berkeley Jet Drive it was capable of speeds over 55mph and readily found a comfortable plane at speeds over 45mph with incredible stability and maneuverability.
