Nothing has since been tested except of course the two Bilge pumps. Batteries are almost completely dead, so will likely need replacing (normally needs doing every 2 years), we have changed the oil and fuel filter regularly and there’s oil aboard but new owner will likely want to change oil again and siphon the bottom few litres of fuel as water condensates over winter. The air inlet in the engine bay needs a new cloth cover and air inlet in engine is really grimy and needs a really good cleaning… Likely new owner will want a full service rather than doing this all themselves. Engine service would likely be £80-£200 inc the cleaning the air inlet, changing fuel filter, and oil change plus adding new air inlet cover (don’t quote me – usually looking £40/hour). Boat is very near many boatyards so you’re spoilt for choice. There’s about 5L of white paint somewhere aboard… She needs a good lick inside, and the outside will need repainting over a couple of days in the summer. She needs a new internal Bilge pump (£60-£100) and you will likely want to get her blacked this summer.She’s completely sold as seen, as a project. She was a lovely boat to live aboard, bright sunny, always ran beautifully – I love the Lister engine. The solar worked fantastically and I’d often get a fair amount even in winter so rarely ran the engine for power. Kids were happy on her – but she now needs blacking, licencing, service, changing the bed, and a massive clean and paint – likely even new batteries. Plus I’m driving far to bilge her each month. Hopefully she’ll find someone to love her again.
