  • Very RARE Chris Craft Roamer Last of this model
    Semi-Enclosed/Open/Sportsman 1958-1959
    15 built, 25’, 9’ Beam, 27” Draft, 48’' Freeboard- forward with 6’2” Headroom.
    36” Freeboard aft. 6,600 - lbs. Welded Steel, Twin K running Engines (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.

    The boat is rare, in all my research and all pages devoted to Roamers, there is not another RSE to be seen.
    The Roamer is stronger and more seaworthy than all other boats of its time, in fact this RSE model was designed and used as Police and Fire patrol boats and broke ice on Lake St Clair
    I do not want to sell it, BUT- not to tell a sad story, - medically I have to. I would like this boat to go to a collection.
    I will entertain as part payment a smaller Boston Whaler or antique auto.
    Excellent Strong hull, no rust and coated with Por 15.- I can’t see any damage or even scuffing on the hull or rails. 6 coats of epoxy paint. DOES NOT NEED SWELLING. The hardware looks newly chromed 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 re-manufactured regulators, starters and generators. New props included. Compression, 120 on stbd and 112 on port.
    Trailer new in 2009, no road use, Twin axle 5,200 lbs per axle, electric brakes on each wheel NADA value 4,500 to $5,400
    Shaft logs were removed and need welding. ($2-400) or I will supply new bronze logs. To be pristine, I would suggest Upholstery, varnishing, headliner, britework fastening. Windscreen side pillar needs a piece to be replaced. Wiring for engine controls are in place and need hooked up.
    Seller may pay 50% of travel and inspection for buyer.
