Boston Whaler Temptation 2500 – Recently refurbished and fitted with twin Mercury 200hp Engines.
A little about her- I bought Temptation 3 Years ago and used her as she was for about a year untill the original engine gave up. When we took her out of the water we decided to fully refurb and re-engine the boat. Everything (litrally everything except from the cabin cusions was stripped out) and we engaged with various trades to re-build! We had her mopped and replaced the graphics (a company called stripes in holton heath completed this) New seating was constructed and the apolstry was completed by Custom Covers Ltd as was additional sunpads for the bow, side pannels, captains chairs etc! A custom cover was also fitted. We had a new transom built by a local engineer in Poole – Ian Jeff Engineering Ltd. He came and measured the stern befor designing & fabricating the new transom. This was painted in a special copper paint inside and out befre being fitted. We then Purchased two ex MOD engines from Bill Higgam Marine that had less than 100 hours on her i believe they are 2004 and fitted them with new controlls Twin throttle unit, including new steering cables and controll cables, new wiring looms, , sea star steering system, new steering wheel, new Compas (Plastimo off shore 105), new plotter (Garmin Echo Chirp side-view with charts & new digital sender), new guages (Mercury), new LED Nav lights, new batteries & new wiring, new fuel gage and sender,new rod holders x 4 …… the list goes on! We then had K-marine in Poole rig the Engines and complete the install. We Fitted her out with new fenders, mooring lines, 15kg Stainless Steel Anchor with 6m of Stailness Steel chain, Stainless Steel Boarding ladders. Because of the Extended trsansome to house the twin engines she actually measures approx 28 ft. I will include the trailer however it will need servicing before being used as it has been stood up for a while now! Im sure i have missed plenty out, viewings are recommended.
She is Approximately 1985 and whilst she is in very good condition please dont expect a brand new boat she does come with the usual marks! The engine hours as of today (we are still using her) are Port – 142.1 Starboard 169.1. (as you can see we use her regually with no problems or issues)
We have used Temptation regually in all weathers- she is extremly reliable and i have full confidence in her. She handles extremly well and being a Boston Whaler, is very safe. She is very fast (we have had 52mph on the plotter) and supprisingly not expensive to run! I believe there are only Three of these models in the country, she is a real head turner and constantly gets complimants. We have spent well over 20k on refurbishing and have shed loads of reciepts! Whilst she has to be sold please no silly offers! I am more than happy to do a sea trial, after an offer has been agreed and deposit paid, sorry no timewasters or joyriders! I have loads more pictures & Videos that i am happy to email over if requested!
I will try to answer any questions asap, she is ready to sail away! I reserve the right to end the auction early, Happy bidding.
