‘Puffin’ is a unique custom built canoe stern forward
wheelhouse displacement keel boat and weighs approx three(3) tonnes. It is moored at Rye East Sussex. The boat was
designed and built by Tankyard of Plymouth for towing replica ships. It has had
two previous owners plus myself since then and has been used for angling and
pleasure. The hull is of heavy duty GRP with hardwood bearers. A commercial
grade rubber fender is fitted around the boat. A brand new Beta 50 engine and PRM
280D gearbox was installed in late 2018 by Roud Engineering of Rye. New fuel
and exhaust systems were fitted at the same time as well as a new shaft
coupling to suit the new engine. 70 hours are the recorded running time. The
1.5 dia shaft drives a three bladed propeller and will sit at 6 knots using low
fuel. It is also a highly manoeuvrable craft
with hydraulic steering. A new fuel tank and an 800lb winch was
installed by the previous owner 5 years ago. There are 2 bunks with low head room in the forward
cabin and a 12 volt cool box. Included is a floating compass,Garmin fish finder and plotter and VHF DFC radio.
“Puffin” has been little used this year due to Covid and other issues but has
been regularly run up and serviced. It is
versatile and a boat that needs to be used far more than I have been
able to. It has been priced to sell and to accommodate the recent installation
of a new engine. I A trade-in may be
possible (RHIB of similar value). The mooring is paid up for the next couple of months.
Please note…. There is no room to install either a galley or toilet without major alterations. “Puffin” is advertised elsewhere and may be withdrawn from eBay auction without notice.
