For sale is our beloved Crownline 230BR bow rider “Wider Wake” with Indespension Super Roller Coaster trailer, currently lying Itchenor, Chichester, West Sussex. [better photos to follow]
If you don’t know about Crownline, these are at the premium end of the market. As you will see from the features this really is a great boat with many advantages over smaller craft of this sort and over lesser makes, including a seawater toilet in the console and not to mention seaworthiness – it is quite a vertical design for a bowrider so everyone is kept safely in the boat.

Condition is very good:

A couple of small marks but barely noticeable.Engine runs like a dream and we have found it incredibly economicalProps in very good orderNo backlash or play in the drive, oil changed at start of season. Outdrive has had very recent transom unit and leg has been recently stripped and repainted with Seajet epoxy system (under the anti-fouling) – can share photos of this.All hydraulics (power trim and trim tabs) work a treatLiterally everything works except anything specifically mentioned belowTrailer has had a brake service recently including stainless brake lines, I’ve regreased the bearings, it’s got a fairly new set of tyres on it. Has a brake flush kit.
Bad bits (not many):
The rear tonneau needs some repairs as it was damaged in high wind (pulled a few of the fasteners off) so I have temporarily repaired it and I am insured for this so when its out of the water I will claim for a new one or to have it properly repaired – already cleared it with insurers. It could do with a small gelcoat repair on one side – the previous owner got a bit of a scuff from a jetty. I bought a gelcoat repair kit which I can supply if you wish to attempt this yourself, I never got round to it as its not really noticeable when its got some owatrol oil on it.Trailer has got some rust on the rear swing beam, though not structural. If you are bothered it just needs grinding and painting for about the middle 8 inches.Trailer could do with a new handbrake spring energy store which I can supply FOC.
Sea Trials are available, please call me to arrange ideally 18-22 Sept. I will probably try and do them all one day.
Any questions call me on 07498 027 597
Also have an inflatable tender with Mariner engine available separately – see other listing.
