Offering for sale my Mk 2 Caraboat, these are much sort
after and very rare to come to the market in this condition, I purchased this
one about 3 years ago, the restoration was started with a new fabricated
internal axle and a complete new reline of the roof and sides in wipe clean
white plastic t&g, the wiring is also in place.
It has been used, since then, by my daughter as an office
next to her house, as can be seen in the photographs, I towed it 20 miles from her house to my bungalow
without any problems, it tows beautifully .
It is probably a unique opportunity to put your own
interpretation on the internal refit, or I can supply comprehensive photographs
of an original factory fit out (4 berth).
The steering, the remotes and Suzuki outboard
motor, Led front lights, rear lights, number plate light, Led cabin lights and
sink, etc, are also included.
I was offered the buy it now price by a prospective buyer
but have been waiting for them to complete the sale since November!!, hence the
sale you are welcome to come and view and make a sensible offer, before the end
of the auction, stupid offers will be ignored if you can find one cheaper, buy
If you are wanting to purchase this fantastic project, you
probably know the history of these extraordinary and very rare craft, it is
believed that only 12 of the original 64 survive.
PLEASE COME AND HAVE A LOOK BEFORE BIDDING YOU CAN LOOK AT ANY TIME
It is listed on other sites and I reserve the right to withdraw if sold.
Some questions that I have been asked
1, 16ft long 6ft 10inches wide and made about 1973
2, Yes it is a Boat or a Caravan, eg CARABOAT and it goes
into the water with its wheels on, it does not need a trailer !!
3, In its original fit out it was 4 berth 1 double and 2 bunks,
cooker, sink, wardrobe and toilet compartment
all of which will need to be constructed OR fit it out to your own spec.
4, how long to get it on the water, difficult question, with
loose furniture etc, it could be a day if your handy.
5, Where is Hinckley ?, Its in Leicestershire, junction 1
M69, or one road away from the Triumph motorcycle factory (well worth a visit)
6, The paint looks dull, well it did, I cleaned it with a
pressure washer and most of the paint came off exposing the gel coats original
Yellow, which looks to be in great shape and much better than the paint.
7, Delivery may be able to be arranged at cost but would
need details of your location.
if it dont sell I now have a place to store it
Current Price: £3500.00
