1974 Chris-Craft 55 Roamer Flush Deck MY Motoryacht in Port Charlotte, Florida

Stock #203687

Update April 2021, the reduced price reflects the seller's desire for an "as as, where is" sale ASAP. The boat is available where she sits at this current price.

This classic, all aluminum, 1974 Chris Craft 55 Roamer Flush Deck Motoryacht is the gem you have been looking for. She spent most of her life on the great lakes and was only brought to the Gulf of Mexico in 2015.

The current owner has made substantial upgrades to the Master Cabin and guest quarters and reconfigured the head to create a master bath with a separate, full standup shower. All of the toilets and appliances were new in 2017.

Her next owner will find the boat very liveable, but there are some areas that will likely need some cosmetic work before she can be called complete.

The seller has gone over most of the ship systems and replaced all pumps and hoses, and reports that everything was in good working order when she was put away in 2019. She performed very well for them on their cruises in recent years.

Underway, the seller is a slow speed boater, and typically cruised at 10Kts with the engines running at ~1200 RPM. On one and only one occasion, he put her to the pegs, and with a light load and calm seas, he saw 34MPH on the GPS

As with any boat of this size and age, there are things remaining to be done...and tidying up the electrical system and replacing the fuel lines are on the sellers short list... and of course a new owner will want to upgrade the electronics.

Since the boat has been on the Gulf of Mexico, it has sat on land in storage under a roof for 10-11 months each year and used by the current owner for their annual cruise. The seller reports that every time they launch her the engines fire off seamlessly without any smoke.

She comes with a spare shaft and a pair of spare propellers.

Take advantage of the Sellers change in plans and make this rare, well-maintained Motoryacht the boat of your dreams!

Information On Condition

According to the seller, this boat is in very good working order and has served them well on two long cruises in recent years.

The engines were gone through by Kennedy Marine in 2015...intercoolers were pulled and cleaned, thermostats and impellers were replaced but otherwise the engines were found to be in great working order.

We encourage all inquiries and questions relating to its present condition, the accuracy of details, including but not limited to its location, engine hours, service history, listing status, and features.
