Here is a unique opportunity to purchase a world class match fishing 17ft Nitro tournament boat previously owned by angling legend Jan Porter.
The boat is well known in Pro angling circles as it was the Shimano/Rapala sponsored Team boat and is in multiple videos and photos across the internet, here is a particularly good video showing the boat in action with the Minn Kota electric outboard.
Nitro boats are world leaders in performance fishing boats, this is such a rare chance to buy a a used Nitro Pro Tour Match boat, especially one setup by Shimano and with this match winning history, it’s the only used Nitro available in the UK that I can find as they are few and far between, expensive and typically only imported from the US by team sponsors and pro anglers. The handling and stability of a Nitro boat is what sets them apart from the rest and the deck space and tackle storage is second to none.

This 170TF model has only had freshwater use and is fitted out with a Terrova 55lb thrust Minn Kota drive with two remotes, foot control pedal and GPS link. This can be seen working. It’s linked to a Lowrance Elite 5 HDI Chart plotter.
We have some paperwork including the manuals for the chartplotter and some previous receipts.
It’s also been fitted with superb quality stainless steel quick adjust multiple rod holders. Originally it had two 12v batteries one for the outboard and plotter and one for the Minn Kota. We tested the Minn Kota outboard with a Lithium Ion 20000mah battery (not included) the size of a smart phone about £15 on ebay and it performed well as you can see in this video:
The boat comes complete with GPS linked trolling motor and equipment and sits on a Nitro trailer, there is no outboard but it is rated up to 120hp ideal to spec your own for your fishing and the helm and steering cable remains with the boat and therefore a straightforward installation. I would suggest the minimum would be 40hp but as a fast fisher ideal with 60+ and takes any long shaft outboard.
To test the boat we pushed this Nitro along with a small tiller outboard with extension (not included) but this could be a practical option if perhaps the boat is on a permanent mooring on a speed restricted lake for example.
We also have many accessories such as anchors, fenders buoyancy aids, ropes etc if required.
The boat and trailer are ready to go and it comes with an all over quality touring cover.
There is a lot of interest in this boat, you are welcome to come and view the boat in Stratford before you buy if you would like to and we would encourage you to arrange a viewing.
