FOR SALE – Ron Berry Wooden Fishing Boat.The Margaret Elaine was once a charter boat fishing out of littlehampton, she has a massive deck area, capable of fishing 10 people in comfort. She is an old wooden boat, is absolutely solid and reliable.. she cruises at around 6 to 7 knots, but we have had her up to 9.. so wont win any prizes for speed, but handles the waves well, and sits nicely in the water..The Bad!!!Due to COVID, we have not been able to take the time and care needed to keep her in tip top condition, she has a lot of areas of flaky paint. She just needs a bit of TLC to get her back to her best, a bit of sanding down and painting, nothing major…. The wood is all solid, its only the surface paint thats flaked off.. I have attached a picture showing how she looked after we last painted her, so show you how she can look with a bit of elbow grease and a few tins of paint.The Good!!!The boat is super reliable and absolutely sturdy, and ready to fish now.!!!!. she has all the kit you need and it all works..includingGarmin fish finder and plotter with clearvue CHIRP sonar, and updated maps.

I have recorded a video of this in operation, message me and I can send with other videos/photos.Two batteries with a dual charge systemSafe built into the lockersFull instrument panel with fuel gauge, oil pressure, temperature, revs, battery charge indicatorThe engine is bomb proof, its a Ford Apollo 70 engine.she starts on the button, is very economical and has never let us down, she was serviced last year, and has had the whole fuel system replaced with new filters, housings, and pipes..Two auto bilge pumps, and a manual bilge pump, which had replacement seals and bellows last year. As its a wooden boat, they do let in a small amount of water, but sits at only about an inch at the bottom.. it’s absolutely nothing to worry about, its usual with old wooden boats..Antifouled two years ago.She is currently berthed at Ramsgate Marina, who have excellent facilities, so if you did want her out of the water to work on her, they have lift out facilities, and spaces in a boat park.We are only selling as we are getting a cruiser, so the misses can enjoy life on the water as well with a few more luxuries, the new boat needs to be on our berth by 24th September, so she would need moving by then, Ramsgate do have empty berths if you wanted her to stay at Ramsgate Marina..
