Passing thru the sliding glass door you find yourself in the salon, to the port is a new brown leather couch across from that are two free standing chairs. Forward is the open galley with solid surface counter and a polished stainless sink and the lower helm that has been shortened for better visibility and function.

  • Additional Information

    The refit / rebuild has been a five year project. The owner started with a rock solid Commander that because of her age needed to be gone thru and rebuilt.

    During this process he changed some of the items that just do not work or look good in today yachting circles but keep the look truly Chris Craft.

    If you start looking closely at the photos you will notice that the front deck hatches are stainless steel instead of the tall Aluminum Chris Craft Hatches also when he replaced the Toe Rails he decided to do away with the side and bow rails for a much cleaner look and easier access to the bow.

    The lower Helm Height was Shortened by about 8" - It looks and functions much better.

    The layout of the Flybridge was totally redesigned to make it much more usable

    The old Gelcoat was carefully sanded and painted with many coats of Awlgrip Paint. 

    To Really understand "Legend" you Must See Her in person.
