Yes sir, it has the 6v53's.
I'm having difficulty finding specs on weight and height. Any ideas ?
Greetings to yachtforums! I don’t know yet if this post will anchor in the right spot, but I’m soon to be the “owner of questionable sanity” of a 31ft 6s steel roamer . What I have so far is a small pail of pics which I’m hesitant to post,and engine serial numbers (twin 283’s),which put the engines to 1959. Idk if that would make it a ‘59, or ‘60. I have read here about the Mariner’s museum for info, and I’ll visit there soon as the guy on the other end is trying to determine the year for the sale etc. If I can get a few pics up, any help would be appreciated. Some clues I think might be when the teak toe rail was introduced,differences in the helm between years and models, pulpit style ( I think it’s missing parts) , and of course any input from the fine gang of folks here who are so much more familiar with these graceful beasts.
Looks like a 59.,check hull,be very thorough, inbox me if you have any questions,I'm restoring 2 at moment...good luck
Yes! She was previously named Boca C. Renamed “ Easyrider “ Hull ID- RAQ460507R. 1968 46’ Roamer Riviera, aluminum with natural aspirated 8V71 Detroit diesels. New owner, Mike Gaudio 6/15/2017.
Looking for others that might have the Chris*Craft Roamer 43 or Roamer 40. Ours is a 2006 Heritage edition with Volvo-Penta TAMD75PEDC 480HP shaft drives. We have had this boat for over a year and truly enjoy her - M/Y "Classy Lady". we get compliments about the boat where ever we go. She is an excellent boat for a couple, but a little cramped for 2 couples. Chris*Craft truly did a wonderful job designing and building this modern day classic. Chris*Craft's factory in Sarasota has been very helpful with our inquiries about plumbing, electrical, etc. We have on board from the previous owner some schematics, only plumbing plan is only for thru hull locations below the water line.
One of the problems we are having is tracking down the A/C condensation drains. unable to tell if they are designed to drain into the bilges or into a sump pump. We accumulate water in the forward bilge where the shower pump is located, as well as where the A/C pump is located under the hatch in the saloon. But there appears to be overboard discharge outlets on the starboard side that seem they would be for A/C condensation drain? Any thoughts ?
Here is an update of our roamer. We have done since 2014 when I posted first. We now have a for sale on her. Hoping she'll find someone to love her and continue to keep her up.
