Thanks for looking. I am regretably selling my Salcombe Flyer 440 because I have another boat. and lack storage for two.
The Flyer is nice stable well built (in UK) boat with good reviews and reputation as a good sea-boat. still all in original gel coat, complete with seat cushions, anchor, rope, fenders,
stainless steel swim ladder, auxiliary bracket and handy storage under rear and
The fuel tank and battery are located under the rear seat/splashwell with aditional stowage for extra fuel etc.
The Boat is
very easy to launch and retrieve and light to tow.
galvanised trailer, had new suspension and hubs, new hitch 18 months ago also
has spare wheel so ready to tow anywhere. The trailer is break back type
and the tow bar can be removed to allow boat to be stored in garage. The keen eyed will notice the G clamp on the trailer, It is there only to stop the trailer rattling and can be removed safely if you dont mind the rattle.
New wheel bearings and seals are currently being fitted to ensure the buyer has a trouble free journey home.
The Mariner (Mercury) Engine is a 40hp 2 stroke. Very easy to service as it’s a twin cylinder single carb,
brand new hulk fuel tank, power trim and tilt which works from the helm and
motor. Unfortunately it drops back down over a period of time but hasn’t
caused any problems as it is only used it to lift motor when coming back onto
slipway and the securing pin can be engaged from the helm.
The previous owner was a competent engineer and removed the
auto mixing and mixed his own fuel, some people prefer the security of not running out of lube or having the system fail, but I have all the parts (in good condition) so it could be put back on.
Always flushed with fresh water after use.
There is a lightweight overall cover with a ridge pole frame to suport it (not installed on the last picture)
The boat gets
onto the plane quickly and clocked 30mph (using Garmin watch) with three grown men
onboard. Very smooth cruising at 25mph, economical and a nice dry ride.
The boat at
can be viewed in Fyfield (off the A420 west of Oxford OX13) and I will demonstrate the engine running on collection. No Paypal please, and Cash on collection.
Current Price: £2895.00
