The 19' Commander preceded the XK boats by one year, only made in 1969 under the Commander name, 90 were built with V-drive, 15 got the Transdrive. A buddy of mine has Transdrive #1.
In addition, yes indeed, the 19-foot hull was manufactured in Italy under the watchful eye of Herb Pocklington. There are apparently no existing records of how many were built there, but I do know they were marketed (and sold)throughout Europe (as were many fiberglass Chris Craft models from the US, as well as some designs that were only sold in Europe).
