1957 cruisers inc. what model ?

Post by 57cruisermerc »

I recently purchased a 1957 cruisers inc. 16 foot boat. hull I.D. 7G5243 . I would like to find out what model I have to see what the original floor plan was. The steering wheel is on the left ? After looking through pictures and reading anything that I can find, I have not been able to determine what model I have. Any help would be appreciated !! Exact length is 16' 1" , beam: 74" , gunnel length: 17' 2" .

1957 model year. Model 300 Commodore model. It was a new model that year and in the 958 model year they changed the name to Commander!

Old brochures for Cruisers, Inc. have been scanned and put on CD-ROM or flash drive which can be purchased at www.wcha.org on the Thompson Bros. Boat collection.
