16ft fishing / river / sea boat with a 9.9hp Suzuki outboard and break back road trailer for easy launching. The boat was originally used as a sea fishing boat on the South coast. I purchased it in 2011, upgraded the trailer and used it on the River Thames for 3 years. Since then it has sat in the garden and deserves more attention and use, apparently I have too many boats so time to move on!Small cabin area at the front to keep things dry and shelter in, should the British weather turn on you. Good sized rear area seating 4 comfortably, and 6 at a bit more of a friendly squeeze. Front cabin has 2 low built in bench seats, a removable wooden floor covered with non slip rubber mat. The open area has 2 x removable bench seats that slot onto the side and more inch thick non slip rubber mats that keep your feet dry from any spray that might come over the side. The boat has a false floor built in so the floor area in the rear is flat, rather than following contour of hull. The false floor also gives you an added safety air filled bouncy area below it, with its own bung. The boat comes with a 9.9hp 2 stroke Suzuki outboard which has been stored in the garage for the last 3 years, it started on the 3rd pull! The engine may not be cosmetically great but it pumps water well and easily clicked into both forward and reverse, it has always been reliable. It is an economical engine whilst still being able to push the boat along well through all conditions. There is a metal 23ltr fuel can (complete with 5ltrs fresh 2 stroke fuel) and fuel line. The boat has a bolt on windscreen above the cabin which adds weather protection for those in the rear. The windscreen is held in place with 3 bolts and easily removable for towing. The boat has a sturdy pair of rollocks and a slightly less sturdy pair of oars as well as a boat hook. The boat is GPR construction and has had a metal strip added to the keel line to protect it. The paint work was done with proper expensive marine paint and whilst not perfect it has generally lasted the last 5 years well. The wood varnish stripes are also in fairly good condition and are solid.The boat comes on a break back road trailer which makes launching easy. The trailer has a good working winch and a jockey wheel. The tyres hold air and appear to be in reasonable condition considering they have been sitting for several years. The jockey wheel system all works although the tyre on the wheel is no longer round!In summary, a nice little boat and engine as much at home on the sea fishing for your diner, or taking the granny and kids for a spin on the river, complete with a trailer to get you to either. If I apparently didn’t already have too many ‘toys’ I might even buy it myself!
