Only bid if you want to own this excellent runner
This boat has been very well looked after. Every winter for the last 6years it’s been taken out of the water and stored in a dry barn with servicing then carried out by a professional Outboard engineer with any issues fixed. She had a fresh covering of anti-fouling last year, this is wearing away so would need to be done again at the end of this season. The hydraulic tilt and trim system was rebuilt by Gillingham Chandlery Last season. Works perfectly.
This has been a great hobby for my family, they are now finding their own interests, so I am selling as it’s not getting the use it deserves.
First off, safety is paramount. My family comes first so I have almost every item you need to be as secure and safe as possible when going out on the water. If you are looking to buy this so use with your family then it’s ready made.
Included is a Garmin 557xs with rear transducer.These are a fantastic bit of kit and over 700 quid on its own. Also has The Blue Chart g2 Vision update.
Everything you see in the pictures and description comes with it. I would never put my kids at risk, hence the sheer number of gadgets and precautions I have purchased. Any trip is done with a huge amount of confidence that nothing will go amiss and plenty of back-up if they do.
The boat itself has no leaks, holes, major damage etc. It has a new marine carpet, new fixed chairs (driver and passenger) with a removable backseat (pictured). Wiring checked and double checked as well as a new Teleflex No Feedback steering system. These are fantastic and gives you ultimate control with added safety. The Suzuki DT140 EFI outboard is electric tilt and trim with no issues or warnings and runs perfectly. The cowling has been resprayed so no sticker.. It performs meticulously and can be seen running in a tank and pressure on all 4 cylinders in below links to videos.
When fishing on my own or with a couple friends i remove the seats so there is more room. There are 2 rod holders (1 each side) for added convenience.
This boat can cruise all day long at 30 knots and i have taken her up-to44 knots when flat conditions have allowed. She is kept in Gillingham Marinaduring the summer (locked basin) so has never sat on the mud as per tidalmoorings.
Constantly flushed with clean water during the summer and SaltAway over the winter periodkeeps her running smoothly along with the services.
The trailer was completely refurbished at the end of the 2016 season. Itis a braked trailer, these all work, with security locks and new wheels (seephotos). I have taken this on a 450 mile round trip with absolutely no issues.
The only item that does not work is a gauge as the tilt and trim arm has broken off. I do have a new spare arm unit (included) but having already gone through 3 of these (they are not cheap) and each one hasbroken off , I must be doing something wrong. So i have left this one for someone who can fit them correctly.
Listed below are ALL the items you get with the boat, if a miss anythingthen the pictures will show them for me. I have additional photos if you need anymore detail.
