    I am wondering what the biggest Roamer was? I have just seen a 68' Roamer and I was not aware they were made that big.

    Biggest Roamer

    Jim, they made a 72' for F. Lee Bailey. Fro what I was told by the factory many years ago, they made three 72's.

    Longest Roamer (to date)

    Officially, the longest Roamer Chris-Craft ever made came very late in the game, the 1979 Roamer MY ("Houseboat") 74' - designed by Derecktor in NY (one of the few - "True Love" shown below.)
    Unofficially, more than a few owners have succumbed to "footitis" and had their true loves lengthened (Mr. Bailey's "Spellbound" included).
    Consequently, the lovely "ScotLynd" (http://yachtworld.com/core/listing/...rrency=USD&access=Public&listing_id=1535&url=) currently reigns as our duly appointed ruler, measuring in at a royal 82 feet.:p
    No doubt, this high water mark will be surpassed someday - but not likely soon. Stay tuned....

    Do you thinks she is worth what they are asking. I could see that kind of money for a newer boat and one that was intended to be that long. Not sure how seaworthy she would be in her present condition.

    ;)
    Yachts get lengthened all the time. If done well (much easier with a metal hulled boat) - it can actually improve sea-keeping capabilities. It all depends.
    That said, "True Love" looks pretty sharp and able to handle the weather.
    As to her true value - it all depends -- has she been maintained to yacht standards -- only a survey can tell!
    Good luck!
