This Avon Searider is in classic 2+2 sportsboat format, including fixed windscreen and dodger. It is powered by a dependable Yamaha 85hp two-stroke outboard. Sale includes top-quality de Graaff roll on/off road trailer.
Details: The Avon Searider is the original deep-V hull-form RIB, capable of handling heavy weather hence widely used by armed forces and in commercial applications, as well as for leisure.
This example dates from the 1980s and remains in excellent condition thanks to little use and to the extremely durable moulded fibreglass hull and Hypalon tubes.
The sportsboat layout allows more comfort and protection than a centre-console so is arguably better for leisure use. The seats are mounted on useful storage boxes. The rear box is configured as a large reserve fuel tank but it and the rear seats can easily be removed and stored if not required.
Yamaha’s 85hp three-cylinder two-stroke engine is highly regarded. This one has normal full remote control and is in good working order, including the electric start and hydraulic tilt/trim. It comes with two remote 25 litre tanks and fuel lines. There are also several spares including a new-condition propeller (see photo) and unused water pump impeller.
The fully-galvanised road trailer is from de Graaff which, apart from producing a range of standard units, also makes highly-regarded custom trailers for all sizes of towable water craft. This one comes with a standard winch, running platforms, a working trailer board and a spare wheel. The wheel hubs have never been immersed.
