For sale is my cherished boat, I have owned this boat for 15 years and have had so much fun and made so many good memories with her. The hull is a 15 foot Dateline Bikini built in 1986 and has that classic look with the sharp edges. The hull is very clean and has had no repairs, it is still original and shows a few minor marks expected with a boat of this age. Nothing is hidden behind paint. It comes with the original stainless steel rails down each side and the classic looking wooden strips on the bow.The interior has been replaced by myself a few years ago, it has been finished in blue and white with piping to match, a new carpet was fitted after the floor was re-glassed. A custom made stainless steel dash was made for me to house the instruments which include a speedometer, rev counter, trim gauge & temp gauge. Also on the dash are 3 switches that control the bilge pump, nav lights & 12v socket. There is enough room to store water skis/wakeboard ropes etc.The engine is a 1999 2 stroke Mercury 75 which i fitted myself 6 years ago. It starts every time and has never let me down. Under the cowling it is very clean and serviced regularly. It is fitted with a 17 inch propeller which gives enough acceleration to easily pull an adult up on a wakeboard or 2 inflatables. A custom made stainless steel transom plate was made in 1 piece and fitted before the new engine.Included in the sale are 2 covers, the cockpit cover which has been made from a blue curtainside lorry fits perfectly and snaps in place with stainless steel press studs. A full cover is also included.A stainless steel removable ski pole is fitted which aids with learning skiers/boarders.The trailer is a bunked un-braked galvanized trailer. The bearings where replaced 2 years ago but i only tow it 500 yards to the slipway. It launches & recovers with ease. I would not like to give any guarantees with regards to the road worthiness as it does look a bit tatty. The wheels and tyres are 3 years old with no punctures.In General.I am selling this boat due to buying a new boat, the spark plugs, impeller, fuel filter & gear oil have just been replaced (21/04/18). We used her this week for the first time this year and it started first time after 6 months. Whoever is the lucky buyer of this much loved boat will have hours of fun. It handles really well due to its classic shape and the engine is very responsive. In my opinion there are not many boats of this age that look nearly as good as this one. All that is required for the summer ahead is water.Any questions or to view please call Lee on 07584376265.I reserve the right to remove the listing as advertised else where.
