I mean somebody has got to check this Roamer out.... can't believe she is still there? Is something wrong with her or has nobody bothered to call Bonnie Castle to check at 866-396-3898? http://www.boattrader.com/listing/19...oamer-90002763
She is a 41/Steel/ w/427's. Ok she's not diesel and ok she's not aluminum... BUT, she is fresh water and there is a good chance the steel is good.. the boating season up there is only 3.5 months so there is a decent chance on this one. She looks near mint from the photos.. worthy of investigation for sure. Think of it this way... when is the last time you heard of a freighter being made of aluminum? If you are thinking about it.. get a survey done.. THAT'S A MUST! How much does a call cost.... 25cents?
The snow up there is probably 4 feet deep and what a time to bargain.. ya gonna wait until Surfs up, economy is raging and the booty is on fire? "I buy when they're selling and I sell when they're buying."
I can tell you this too from when Homer Roamer was only 13 years old.. the guys with the 37's and 38's really wanted the 41.... it was the difference between being sort of successful and really successful if you pulled up in a 41... for those who do not know the history.. but its true...the 41 is a GREAT LOOKING ROAMER
. Now the 38's are faster but where are you going anyway.. beer guzzles just as fast at 24 as it does at 35. 41 Roamers are not slow boats.. they were quite fast for the time. The steel is slower, but if you re looking for a Bull Dozer.. here's one to check-out.
Another thing... Owner Financing?..
in tough times you can spin deals you never could when the economy is up... why not try or at least call and see .. it's free to ask! Another thing.. you never know until you make an offer
.. so what if they get mad at you.. but what if they bite?
It is very depressed way up in northern upstate NY.... It would be cool if someone reading this makes the call and finds Gold at a pyrite price.
Now those of you who read this thread regularly know that Captain Roamer Yachtsman Bill
mentioned a baby Roamer on this thread and an obscure previously unknown sailor named Travelinman
saw it here. He went out and bought her... Now is that cool or what? Captain Billl Rocks!
And.. since I know Bonnie Castle (vacationed there as a kid) and these waters, as well as the fact that frankly the 41's are one of the best.. if not the best of all Roamers.. I mean, that's just my opinion...(all Roamers are the best of course) She is very well proprotioned, beamy, small enough to be a large cruiser, large enough to be considered a small Yacht.. real nice combo on this one.
