This is a beautiful 1961 vintage Model 370 Commander made by Cruisers Inc.  Cruisers Inc was a sister company of Thompson Boats and they shared manufacturing techniques and styles.  You may know that some models of the Thompson Boats product line were also produced by Cruisers Inc but they were built to a higher standard that sold for a premium price. This 370 Commander is a wonderful, well maintained and original example of a classic wooden pocket cruiser with a strong running Evinrude StarFlite IV 75hp motor that is correct for this boat.  It may very well be the original motor.  Another complete Evinrude Starflite motor that has been winterized for storage is included with this package.  In my care, I've had the varnish maintained and engine serviced by professionals as required routinely on a vintage boat.  A new hand-held marine radio and a new-in-the-box Garmin 541S Chartplotter GPS with Sonar is included and the boat is already wired for the Garmin.  This boat is ready to enjoy with your family and/or take to boat club outings or classic boat shows.The trailer shown with the boat in these pictures is included.  I've recently replaced the wheels and tires and installed new bunks.  The boat has been stored between outings in my standard size garage at my home.  You can see in one of the images that the windshield frame has been hinged so it can fold backward for storage.  This enables the boat to fit inside a standard garage with only a 7 ft high door.   This boat always attracts attention dockside and on the road.  People love to see and talk about classic vintage boats, especially ones that are as cute as this one.  The boat is located in Lake County of Central Florida, near Orlando.  Please contact me if you are interested.  I am a long time member of ACBS and you'll get straight answers from me about this boat.
