RAREST Chris Craft Roamer
Semi-Enclosed/Open/Sportsman 1958-1959

15 hulls built 25', 9' Beam, 27" Draft, 48" Freeboard forward with 6'2 Headroom
36" Freeboard aft.
6,600 - lbs. Welded Steel,
Twin K's (original 620 - hours). Model RSE 25-512

The Roamer is stronger and more seaworthy than all other boats of its time,
RSE model was designed for offshore fishing and used as Police and Fire patrol boats, an excellent model for enjoyment for YEARS.

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

The Good
Excellent hull- I can't see any damage or even scuffing on the rails, the hardware looks rechromed but is original, only the spotlight shell has very small pitting. Twin K engines are original with 620 and 621 low hours with NEW or remanufactured regulators, starters and generators.
Trailer was new in 2009, has been used only to store boat. Has never been used over the road with the boat. Electric brakes on all wheels Twin axles rated at 5400# ea.

The boat has not been bastardised.

The Bad
Through hull shaft logs need fabricated and welded (I can supply bronze shaft logs but do not recommend),

The Ugly
Upholstery, Headliner, finish linoleum, brightwork and prior owner had hole on bulkhead for a radio.

Asking $19,750 includes trailer and extras. . PM me for further info.prefer boat will go to a collector.
