Boat is located in: Springfield, Louisiana

This 1972 Chris Craft Commander cockpit "Wet and Wild" is one of thirty hull design. 7-UP bought this boat new from the factory and kept it in Nola for the first 4 years of her life.

In 1976 Wet and Wild was bought and moved to Springfield, Louisiana, where she currently resides in a covered, fresh water, shed.

Wet and Wild was truly blessed with her owners, because of the attention to detail showed over the years.

A full interior restoration completed twice, but most recently in 2011.

The current owner has cared for this vessel more than one probably should.

With upgrades in every facet of the boat, it is truly one of a kind.

Detailed records dating back to 1986.

Here's your opportunity to own a piece of American history!

You will NOT find a cleaner more pristine boat than this one.

All furniture is included.

Website Wet and Wild was purchased by J.

Clint & Sue Cheveallier in the Fall of 2010.

She is a fiberglass 1972 Chris Craft Commander Yacht Fish and is one of only twenty some cockpit vessels manufactured by Chris Craft between 1967 and 1972.

Construction began on the Wet and Wild in 1971 and was completed in 1972 at the Pompano Beach Chris Craft Plant.

She was custom built for the owners of 7-UP Bottling Co in New Orleans.

That explains the name "Wet and Wild" which was the advertising slogan for 7-UP in the early 70's.
