Shetland Alaska 500I am reluctantly selling my boat in order to fund another project, anyone who knows of the Alaska range know that they are very well built, solid boats and very sought after. At just under 5 meters long, 2.1 meters wide with high gunnels she sits very nicely in the water and gives the impression and feel of a much bigger boat with plenty of storage, molded rear seats and matching front swivel seats she can comfortably fish with 4 people. Mine comes as a full package ready to go fishing, I’ll even include a couple of rods and reels to get you started.This is a used boat, and was built by Shetland in 1985 (before the hulls were taken over by Seahog) and many believe that the original Shetlands are better built. As you would expect from a regularly used fishing boat, she has a few marks here and there on the hull from launching and recovery, however she is structurally sound, very stable in the water and easy to tow.She is fitted with a Suzuki DF70 Four Stroke engine with electric start and electric tilt/trim. The engine is a 2006 model, has been well locked after and was fully serviced during lockdown with all fluids etc changed. The engine runs very nicely, economical to run, slips in and out of gear smoothly and pumps water etc as it should (can be seen running).She was fully rewired with marine grade wiring from top to bottom during lockdown and had a custom made full tonneau cover and extended cuddy fitted earlier this year. She has an excellent solar charging system fitted which keeps everything fully charged at all times and is fitted with a couple of USB charging ports for phones etc and a separate 12v charging outlet. The boat is also fitted with an electric recovery winch, which also has a separate solar charging panel. Other electrical items include Lowrance HDS Gen 1 Fish Finder/Chart Plotter, Lowrance HDS Gen 2 Fish Finder/Chart Plotter, VHF Radio and Radio/CD player.She comes on a perfectly serviceable rollercoaster braked road trailer. The trailer works perfectly well, however the breaks could do with a service or could be removed if you wanted (something I was going to do over the winter). The trailer is fitted with a 12v battery powered electric winch to ease launch and recovery. This is fitted with a separate solar charging panel to keep it fully charged, had a brand new battery fitted in August and comes with the manual winch as back up.The boat also comes with the following:• Almost new full tonneau cover• Extended cuddy section• Matching twin swivel seats• Lowrance HDS Gen 1 Fish Finder/Chart Plotter (fitted with transducer)• Lowrance HDS Gen 2 Fish Finder/Chart Plotter (fitted with transducer and antenna)• VHF Radio (fitted with antenna)• Solar charging system• Radio/CD player with speakers• Electric bilge pump• 25ltr Suzuki fuel tank (half full)• 6 x Stainless steel rod holders (built in)• Heavy duty plastic 3 rod holder (fitted)• Custom made bait board to fit the 3 rod holder• Engine bag/cover• Engine casing cover• Large leisure battery for the engine• 2 separate leisure batteries to power the auxiliary devices (fish finders, plotter, radio etc)• Waterproof battery box• Fitted Port/Starboard lights• Steaming light• LED Cabin lights• LED deck lights• 4 x Life Jackets• Anchor with chain, rope, buoy and Alderney ring for easy anchor recovery• 12v powered recovery winch with separate solar charging panel• Spare manual winch• 2 Fishing Rods, 2 reels and some end tackle• Gaff• Landing net• Boat hook• Boarding ladderViewing welcome before auction ends in Old Colwyn (North Wales).Buy it now price is £7250 with everything listed above included, however I would be open to a little bit of negotiation, but please don’t expect to buy her for peanuts as I’m not desperate to sell for silly money.Listed elsewhere so I reserve the right to end the auction at any time.Deposit required at end of auction and balance via bank transfer on collection which needs to be within 5 days of auction end please.Happy to answer any questions.
