Bilge keel 23ft Pandora 700 by Rydgeway marine UK
Purchased earlier this year but with returning to university, I no longer have time to complete the final jobs to get her on the water.
In order to get the boat on the water the following needs to be carried out:
-> Shaping and fitting of the new rudder to the skeg and bolts refitted with lower casting (lower skeg fitting and rudder supplied)
-> Anti foul applied to the hull and keels ( I have ¾ of a tin for this). Fill any scuffs with epoxy filler. The most recent photos show the boat with the hull rubbed down and keels having the paint and corrosion removed practically ready for a new coat.
-> Engine minor service, engine can be seen running upon request
This is a very rare example of a Pandora 700, it has a fitted 12hp inboard engine which is running and parts for these engines are available from the original company. The engine benefits from a wet exhaust which makes it sound very quiet and helps it run more efficiently. There is a drop out at the rear for an outboard as well. I have a 9.9hp XL shaft yamaha 4 stroke which is available separately. There is a good record of papers with this engine including useful schematics of the electrics, cooling system and wet exhaust.
The sails are in serviceable condition as seen in the photos.
Please note that the first photo is the boat when I picked it up in Anglesey and before I sanded down the hull and keels. It just gives an idea of what it should look like when rigged and with the rudder fixed.
No expense has been spared in the making of the new rudder. The new rudder is Iroko wood and there is a brand new lower casting fitting as well. The value of these two alone is £350. The rudder was cut on a precision CNC machine and measured based on the old rudder. It has some flash surrounding so that it can be sanded to the required fit.
Here is a list of parts found on the boat:
-> Fully working speed and depth log by NASA marine
-> Anchor with warp and chain ( corroded chain could be replaced)
-> Selva VHF set. Working but will need connection to mast aerial re spliced. I have the connector for this
-> 20W solar panel and new YUSA battery bank
-> Internal 70L water tank
-> Sliding kitchenette unit with sink and 2 burner hob
-> Old school tape radio unit for music
-> 4 berths, one v berth and two singles. One head.
-> Original gelcoat finish throughout cabin ceiling interior in very good condition-> Single leg chart tableI have a folder full of receipts and useful schematics for the boat including a boat survey. There is an active Pandora 700 association in the UK with regular meets and regattas.
No trailer with the boat. I can lift the boat onto buyers transport trailers for £30.
Please no time wasters. If you don’t have 20 or more positive feedback don’t bid. Serious buyers should contact me first, and viewing is very welcome. If you can’t afford it don’t buy it. This boat is a genuine bargain and I’m only selling as I can’t afford to keep it where it is being worked on anymore whilst I go back to university for the next year. Boat must be removed within a week of the listing ending. I have contacts for transporting the boat competitively.
Current Price: £750.00
