Welcome to the auction for my traditional style GRP clinker hull boat (I have a classic speedboat also listed, if speed is your thing have a look.)This craft was originally built as a tender for a local classic Maldon Barge and certainly looked the part hanging on davits aft. I understand it may possibly be a Shetland cove type craft but unsure, very solid hull and quality construction.The red hull was painted in 2019 using Hemel paints and looks well, new hardwood running straights and metal sled bands installed same. Topside and inside hull is in a lovely ivory colour. Three sets of seating finished in solid teak, certainly classic look, boat has a broad beam and can comfortably seat 6-8 people although four probably best should you want to row or fish. Beautiful to row, antique oars and solid bronze row locks (early ones) are to be included, hull shape and design gives excellent sea keeping characteristics.It has a solid working antique bronze anchor roller, antique looking anchor post, period looking rope cleats throughout, bronze rope guides, new 2019 anchor locker hatch, internal anchor chain attachment point. Manual bilge pump, strainer and new hose.The trailer in the pics is included, it is a genuine Multi Roller Snipe “break back”. Trailer has just been refurbished during lock down.. bearings, roller pins, washers, electrics, newish tyres, etc and hasn’t even touched the water yet since! Rollers etc all fit like a glove and all are adjustable including the break latch facility.Light board (included) is the built in adjustable Snipe bracket type, all ready to go, you just need a towbar and number plate. I can deliver at £cost, we are in Essex. No engine, I used my 15hp long shaft Johnson however anything from 9-25hp is possible depending where you go really, very solid transom. Cash preferred, viewing and questions welcome. 4.5(15ft) length x 1600 beam
Current Price: £1900.00
