    Yep, one of the rare ones is up for sale. My project is coming to a premature end due to a change of jobs. Hull is done. Interior is done. Motors are done.... Etc etc...

    Very rare 1963 Roamer soft top. Steel.

    Runs and drives great. Just had a lot of welding done on the hull. All bad spots replated (one area was overplated). New rudder boxes (SS) and newly rebuilt rudders. New barrier coating on exposed steel and 3 coats of Micron CSC on entire hull. New props.

    - 1986 350 Crusaders. Rebuilt 154 hours ago. All receipts. EVERYTHING replaced.
    - Rebuilt Velvet Drives (2.91 to 1)
    - New high-end 4-flush head, new tank, plumbing and macerator
    - 16,500 btu AC. Perfect shape.
    - New bilge pumps and alarms
    - Original generator runs great (water in the fuel filter though)
    - Entire interior gutted, stripped to bare wood and refinished with 6 coats of high gloss Captains.
    - Good carpeting and upholstery. Interior is awesome!
    - Head has been re-done
    - Water system is pressurized and has a nice filtration system.
    - New zincs (disconnected CAPAC). Sitting at a near perfect -.950 reading.
    - Hull sides and transon freshly painted (2 months ago). New blue striping, etc.
    - Boston Acoustics and Bose speakers. Pioneer Premiere stereo with Ipod hook up.
    - All wood rot was removed and wood from another 1962 Roamer was used for replacement.
    - Forward cockpit, rail, mast and helm all stripped and 6 coats of high gloss Flagship applied.
    - Covered moorage since I took on this project.

    Great boat!!

    MUCH MUCH more! Just made a 55 mile round trip this past weekend with zero problems. Great turn key boat which only needs minor cosmetic finishes.

    $20,000 firm.

    I will get some tomorrow. The interior ones I have now are during the resto process. Engine compartment could use a little cleaning after all the welding in there. Pics on the way!

    Also comes with new dash with great gauges, a LOT of spares, extra mahogany, another set of helm seats, paint, etc......

    Motors are not much to look at. They were rebuilt in 1996 and have had very little use. I bought the boat as a derelict and replaced the distributors and a starter. Everything else on them was done. Perfect oil pressure and no blow-by.

    The pics do not do it justice.
