15ft Fishing Boat –
Ready for Sea
Here we have my much loved 15ft orkney style fishing boat for sale.
I have owned this boat for 2 years and in that time, made many improvements and upgrades. The hull has not been painted as many say you should not do this before selling. I have painted the cuddy with top quality Internationale paint as well as the splash well and sponsons.
The boat itself is an orkney style fishing boat, it measures 15ft in length. The bow cuts through waves easily and the boat is plenty big enough for 1-4 passengers. The cabin is empty with a small area for the anchor and battery. There are 2 brand new swivel seats installed and the rear is decked out with a plywood seating area and fuel store.
The engine is a 2 stroke Tohatsu 25hp outboard that has been upgraded with the electric start kit which operate from the front console. It comes connected to the boats steering system with full range of movement in either direction.
The trailer is a standard roller trailer with winch and jockey wheel. You can easily push and manoeuvre the boat around by hand as well as being towed. The trailer comes with a wheel clamp for added security and 3 keys as well as a heavy duty ratchet strap to keep it firmly on the trailer during towing.
There is a good array of electronics on the boat that I (as an electrician) have installed myself. This includes a Garmin Striker 4 GPS and sonar/fish finder which operates on a dual frequency from the transducer mounted on the transom. Also included is a high spec ICOM IC-M423 VHF radio with DSC (digital selective calling) and 1.2m antenna. The antenna has a full range of movement and locking mechanism. I have also installed port, starboard and forward LED navigation lights that operate from the main switchboard. These are very low wattage which means it doesn’t have much load on the 90AH marine battery which I am also including. There is also a marine compass installed.
As well as the electronics, I am also including the following; Fire extinguisher, 2 lengths of rope, additional 20l fuel tank as well as the main one for the outboard, fitted canvas boat cover, ducks back outboard cover. I have also fitted a manual bilge pump to the rear which pumps and excess water directly from the bilge, into the splash well.
The boat is registered on Lake Windermere until Dec 2018. This registration can be transferred to the new owner.
This is about all I can think to include in the listing but please feel free to get in touch with any questions via message or my mobile 07908 659165.
