Broom Gemini Speedboat.
Bought several years ago for restoration, but disability meant it was never finished.
Over the years I’ve tried to attempt some restoration – I have a 30hp Yamaha engine which ran perfectly when bought, however, the prop was damaged beyond repair so you’ll need to get a replacement. It’s been stored in the outbuilding for several years so I’m unsure if it runs today. I’ll include it in the auction along with a large 22l fuel tank fitted with the appropriate connector.
The boat comes with a sturdy trailer and is in fairly good condition. There are two seats which can be converted into sun loungers and two fishing rod holders, one on either side of the boat. The gel-coat is in good condition and the bottom of the hull has been treated with anti-fouling paint. It needs several screws on the rear transom to fix the metal plate on the back and a bit of fibreglassing needs doing either side of the transom. There is some damage to the wheel arch on the trailer due to a blowout last year. There is a small hole in the windshield and the interior needs a tidy as it has been uncovered for a few weeks and has sprouted some greenery! I would think that after a good clean it will be fine, but I am also including a piece of carpet to match the interior one.
It has steering and throttle controls fitted but needs a new speedometer.
I’ll also throw in a spare steering wheel! 🙂
The upholstery was fitted not long after I bought it and has become discoloured due to the elements, but some Cilit Bang and elbow grease should bring it up good as new!
She is a cracking boat and will make someone a fun project to restore for the summer.
I’d also recommend bringing some ratchet straps to tie her down to the trailer in order to reduce bouncing when towing.
I think that’s everything. I’ve tried to be as accurate as possible, but If there’s anything else I’ll amend the listing as necessary.
Sold as seen and collection only from Wrexham due to size.
