Stunning example of this classic and highly sought-after, stylish Broom Scorpio, recently refurbished and with a new Tohatsu 15hp outboard, fitted 2018.This has to be one of very few examples left in tact, of its age, in this condition.4/5 seater in rare orange and off-white, with original gelcoat, still taking a great shine after three coats of wax just this morning. Looks like a Bond boat in and out of the water. The perfect head-turning day boat.The sliding roof is removable — it also looks fantastic without the roof — and comes with a recently made rear removable canvas canopy with rear window.Original windscreen is in a very good condition for its age and original side windows also in tact, with rubber seals all solid and without cracking.The interior, finished in black vinyl studded panelling, is also original, and in excellent condition, with exception of the bench seat, which needs reupholstering — we just wrapped a towel around the rear bench seat and it looked neat and worked fine for us! — and the front passenger seat is showing wear at right corner, which it’s probably worth taping if not to be mended.The boat shines up beautifully. It shows some small imperfections as you’d expect, with a few areas of hazing to top sides, but it has survived incredibly well. A programme of works was completed in 2017, by the previous owner, bringing the boat up to an excellent standard. A brand new 15hp Tohatsu outboard was fitted for me by Chertsey Marine, approved Tohatsu dealer, in July 2018, with new cables, remote controls and ignition and rear external battery cut-off switch, all as seen in pictures. An excellent, experienced marine engineer did all works. Stamped service history since then by same engineer, but not serviced in 2020 as never out of garage. Boat safety scheme certificated until July 2022.The engine has been winterised by that same engineer at end of season in 2018 & 2019. It has only done about 50-60 hours maximum total in fresh water on the Thames since fitting. Hull newly anti-fouled in 2017. Has done one and a half summer seasons in the water since.The boat has been stored in dry garage over winter ’18 & then since November ’19 to date. I didn’t put it on the water in 2020. Battery appears to be dead so new battery required. Currently sitting on a galvanised Lay-Ways trailer with winch and new wheel bearings in 2017 and good tyres. Brakeless and without brake light back board.As seen in pictures, included are: rope, fenders, ratchet strap, oxidation remover, boat polish, boat wax, vinyl cleaner and metal polish, scuff mark removing sponges, cordless rotary buffer with spare pad, cloths and charger. I also will include if needed an off-the-shelf boat cover that fits well on the boat when used without its roof (£30-ish from amazon). Engine tools, engine manual, spare spark plug, spare pull chord and dead man’s switch, 2 ignition keys with one dead man’s switch on lanyard. Engine is locked to hull with two keys on hand. Also included but not pictured: 2 wooden canoe-style paddles stowed under bonnet space for emergency.Boat is good to go for immediate use in the water, but here are the snags to be aware of.- wear to seat vinyl mentioned above.- dead battery mentioned above, and engine not turning over from remote ignition, assumed for this reason.- two back corner poppers on rear canvas cover have broken off, but do not affect the cover being water tight. Fixable.Please only bid if you can collect from KT7, with payment required beforehand or on collection within 48 hours, by bank transfer only please. Very happy to coordinate with a collection by a professional carrier if required. The trailer has, in my time, done a maximum return journey of 10 miles each way (driven by marine engineer). I have very little experience in trailers or transporting boats — as far as I am aware the trailer is in good condition, but sold as seen, and buyer takes responsibility for it shipping safely. Viewing very welcome, after 6pm weekdays or any time Saturday 24 April.
