Are there any 36'? Here's a pic.
Well, here's a beauty that wuz for sale.
No idea where it 'tis now.
Excellent choice this model is my favorite one too.
they are blood difficult to find since only 25 were produced.
I was lucky to find one last year that was in good condition just needed a fresh paint to look great. I still struggling to find a good and reasonable paint shop in the Rochester area.

Bottom line I have for now only found 10 of the 25 produced.
Let me know if any of you know of an Alumium 1963 or 1964 that was not described above.
Got four more '62 Riv 36s (AL) listed in the list of known survivors:

Keep those hull#'s coming.
. Was just lookig at the CC roamer area ....
and was wondering about the one for sale in DC. Is it still for sale?.
Did you personaly go look at all those boats?
These number don't look like Aluminum
since aluminum hulls are either 16xx in 1963 or 17xx in 1964
so those hull should be recoded as steel
coverlife is definitly a steel and the number should be RXB(not P) 36 155
Jusr Roaming is a stell I know the boat
and RXB 36 140 is also a steel
The only one I am not sure about is "dream catcher" since there is no number do you have picture that could help identify if it is AL??
Eric thank you for trying to help
Sorry for the delay
Yes I have seen it in person attached few pics quite a lot of work but it is an AL !
After investgation "Dream Catcher" ihas a small winsow on the front of the cabin which makes her a 1962 in 1962 therewas no AL produced in 36' (27' vere AL in 1962)
Unfortunately this is also a Steel.
Now your picture the dark blue registered MC Q912 is an Aluminum Do you have any way of finding this hull number??
Does anyone Know this boat?
Hi, I have a 36 ft. 1964/1965 Roamer aluminum hull in original boat house on Mississippi river in LaCrosse, WI
it is a very interesting unit.
can you send us the pics and the hull number (it is on the side of the starboard engine hatch)
plus a descriotio of the condition would be hekofull
Sounds too good too be true - do let us know a bit more, no?
The World Wonders
I have been working on an old Chris Craft. its steel, but its hull number is close to several mentioned here, my boat is RXB 32-139. A slightly smaller,steel version of the boats mentioned here.
I have the little sister, a 27 custom comet, fully restored, for sale in Northwestern Ohio. I hate sell her but, since we've recently purchased a 38 Regal Sedan, There is more than enough "non ferrous" in our life.
I have the little sister, a27 custom comet for sale in Northwestern Oh.
I know where there is a 1964 Aluminum 56' Roamer (Serial# RMQ56-1703R) that may be for sale.
The boat referenced here as Lucky 13 in Knovxille, TN has changed owners and is now the RAHRUE. Still in Knoxville, has new bottom and hull paint. Very well maintained and artfully restored.
There is a 36' 1963 Aluminum Roamer Riveria at the same dock in Knoxville, needs a lot of work but still very sea worthy. Just needs a loving owner.
1963 Riviera 6S 36 ft. RXP36-1609
I purchased RXP 36-1609 last July in South Bend, IN.
It Now resides in Cape May , NJ
I have lots of questions for this group.
Update: A friend and I bought the "Mary Clair" last month here in Knoxville, TN. She's a 1963 36' Roamer Riviera with an Aluminum hull that is in great condition. The engines have not run for at least 10 years- until last week. Now they both purr like a lion! We are pulling her out soon for a full renovation!
the beauty is mine still Rochester
might be selling if anyone interested
