Hello and welcome to our auction. We are having a clear out of projects and redundant items / vehicles. We are listing this as a project purely based on the fact it’s been sat for 7 years and needs a few bits doing.Offered for sale is my fathers fishing boat, micro or mini cabin 14.5ft with Marina 48hp outboard, named ‘Lady J’. Sold as a starting, running, project… following the sobering realisation my father is very unlikely to ever complete the work required to recommission, as simple as it is, and the reality he won’t use it again. . **I have personally had I the motor running last weekend, and it sounds as crisp as the day it was parked up…! My father has owned this boat since (from memory) 1992 ish, we spent our entire childhood on costal trips and spent many hours on this vessel. Up to around 2005 it was used maybe 8-12 times a year and maintained to suit, winterised and really looked after. It was then used less frequently, maybe 5 times a year up to around 2012. In 2011 I personally had a pretty modern wakeboard boat and kept it moored on the water so it was easier for my father to use mine than this. I parted with my boat around 2015 at which point Lady J was put back on the water, but only used once or twice, and was parked up end of 2015, winterised and hadn’t been used since. Things to note: Owned for around 30 years.Was running perfectly and was sea worthy when parked up 2015.Wooden floor panel is rotten so wants replacing. Some of the cabin wood may be rotten, but generally looks ok.Fibreglass hull, very light weight. Side window on cabin needs a seal and fixing in place (left side).Marina 48hp outboard, pull start, manual lift. Running and sounding sweet. Would advise an impeller and plugs and a decent service before heading out to sea. Based only on time sat.Cable steering is there and functional. Cable throttle is there and functional. Fish finder is included although we have no idea if it still works. Painted light blue on top to stop the glare from the sun. Although all paint is a bit flakey so would be fit from a tidy up. Galvanised break back trailer. Break back is likely needing lubrication and we would advise wheel bearings as they are a little noisy. Have put a used set of wheels and tires on the trailer as the ones on there were shot. . We cannot take responsibility for the trailers road worthiness so tow at your own risk, it’s probably fine but has been sat for 7 years. I have contacted a local recovery firm and they are able to deliver at £1 per mile each way at the buyers cost. If I’m honest I’m probably being over critical but I simply do not have the time to waste with buyers coming and being disappointed, so I’ll be very honest and you know exactly what your getting. Covid compliant viewings are welcomed, with notice, but due to my fathers age, I will conduct any viewings and or sales. Please fully read and digest the whole advert and study the photos in detail before asking questions.We do not have a set buy it now, mostly based on the fact we are not 100% sure on value… Looking at the market we are confident it will command a fair price, the starting bid is at 500 on a no reserve auction. However due to the unbelievable amount of time wasters I have experienced on eBay the last few weeks, feel free to make an offer, if it’s enough to raise my eyebrow, I will add a buy now for you to keep inline with eBay. We WILL NOT accept offers at the starting price… if an offer doesn’t come in to temp us, we will leave auction running. Time is precious so please only enquire with serious questions and offers. We will only entertain serious conversations and viewings, and will not be accepting px. Uk bidders only with 10 plus feedback, if you bid without this I will remove those bids. You are bidding to buy, not to view. All usual eBay rules and regs apply. A non refundable deposit of £500 is required within 2 hours of auction end, along with contact details please.
