Description

Very RARE Chris Craft Roamer
TOUGH STEEL
Semi-Enclosed/Open/Sportsman 1958-1959
An Excellent Day Boat...Even Overnighter.

one of 15 built, 25, 9 Beam, 27 Draft, 48" Freeboard- forward with 62 Headroom. More room than any similar CC

36 Freeboard aft. 6,600 lbs. Welded Steel, Matching engines,Twin K's that have 120 and 112 compression (original 620 hours). Helmsman and companion seats, Stern seat, Fiber glass top, sliding windows, canvas enclosure curtains, 12v, Bunks, head with holding tank. Plenty of storage.
A VERY DRY BOAT.. Keeping 8 people dry with 6'2" headroom. Enclosure canvas protects all open areas under way.

The boat is rare, in all my research and all pages devoted to Roamers, there is not another RSE.

Stronger and more seaworthy than ALL other boats of its time,this RSE model was designed and used as Police and Fire patrol boats, offshore fishing and broke ice on Lake St Clair. Stable ride, keel fin midship to stern, Superb handling Just a comfortable boat.

I do not want to sell it, - medically I have to find the right person to take the boat to its final completion. about 10-12% left to do for a superb boat that will last generations more.

I will entertain as part payment a smaller Boston Whaler or antique auto.



Excellent Strong hull, NO rust and coated with Por 15.- No hull dings.Not any damage or even scuffing on the rails. DOES NOT NEED SWELLING. The hardware looks re chromed and is is original, only the spotlight shell has very small pitting. Twin K engines are original with 620 and 621 low hours with NEW or re-manufactured regulators, starters and generators and need to be hooked up.

Trailer new in 2009, Twin axle 5,200 lbs per axle, electric brakes on each wheel NADA value 4,500 to $5,400 -used. This has zero miles with a boat.


Finishing
Shaft logs were removed and need either included bronze shaft logs or welding. I would suggest New Upholstery, new and touch up varnishing, headliner and linoleum completed. Needs britework fastening completed. Windscreen side
pillar needs a piece to be replaced


Seller may pay 50% of travel and inspection for buyer. We have tuned down offers for use as dive boat. But would do well as a offshore fishing vessel.
