Hull #1 of only five 48 foot Commuter models built by Chris Craft. One of two remaining. Inspired by the success of the 38 foot Commuter, the 48 foot model was Chris Craft's impressive flagship model of the motor yacht fleet. Built to provide her owner with rapid high speed transportation, Allez was capable of speeds up to 30mph and could taxi 30 passengers.
Equipped with all of the amenities of home, including a galley, salon area, forward and stern staterooms, and ample entertaining area. Allez is the original prototype and exact boat featured in Chris Craft's sales literature. She was displayed at the 1930 New York City and Miami boat shows prior to her first ownership.
Imagine touring Allez in 1930 while Chris Craft's salesman demonstrated the boat's elaborate sliding screen mechanism for the forward cabin, crank windows, salon radio, and other features never before-seen in the luxury boating realm. This boat features the first-ever shower installed in a Chris Craft. Allez is a very significant part of motor yachting history. She has been painstakingly restored and is ready for her next caretaker. This is the first time the boat has been offered for sale on the open market since 1976.
