This is my amazing powerboat. I believe it’s a British built crusader ? It’s very well laid up and is very strong . The previous owner, who is a qualified marine engineer, prepared this boat for the Cowes Torquay race back in 2016 and as such carried out considerable works .This included reinforcement to the hull , Seastar hydraulic steering , new 316 stainless steel transome plate , beautifully welded lightweight aluminium fuel tank with cockpit operated fuel shutdown. Also he completed a full strip down of the engine , replacing pistons, piston rings , reed valves , full respray and all consumable components such as impeller , thermostats , plug etc . This Spring I completed another interim service that included, new water pump assy. complete with impeller , new plugs , new gear oil and replaced some carburetter hoses . The compression on all six pots is a very respectable 120psi with less than 5% variation.The noise of a 2.5 litre “V”-6 outboard running on muffs is awesome! Not sure my neighbors would agree !! The propellor is a 25pitch Quicksilver Lazer 11 in pristine condition.The guages are all working ( speed , rpm and fuel content) Foot operated throttle and trim/tilt Adjustable bucket seats Black canvass cockpit cover .The trailer is a single axel purpose built RM( the best on the market in my opinion).It’s equipped with an Avonride braking system that has just been serviced and set up. New hub bearings recently fitted . This is an amazing trailer that has been set up perfectly. It’s so well balanced that I can single-handedly manoeuvre the boat around my drive ! It tows and brakes impeccably. This boat needs nothing, its truly a turnkey outfit ready to be enjoyed. It’s so narrow and the deep “V” hull just cut through the water like a hot knife through butter. I have had speeds in excess of 60 mph but I was told by the previous owner its capable of up to 80 mph ? I haven’t been brave enough for that as yet ! I used her ( No Half Measures) to travel from Exmouth to Paignton and back to watch an air display on Saturday 1st of June , a journey of around 30 miles . She burnt approximately 3 gallons and that was mostly cruising at 4000rpm 45 mph . If you are running a higher speed and rpm it obviously a lot less fuel efficient.
