Here is my Dateline Bounty, deep v, fast and stable family speedboat. It has the legendary straight 6 tower of power gold band (last of these very robust units), 115 horsepower, power trim. I have owned for several years and will be sad to see go but a larger sailing vessel is now on the cards. The boat is very tidy, original gel coat which is polished annually and comes up well, never beached, has the odd age related mark but no serious dings and has never been patched or repaired. The interior is a little tired however fully functional and not dropping to pieces, I still feel it’s presentable and importantly all seat / floor structures are solid, the front seats are also still very nice and wound not take a great deal to tidy if desired. Stainless steel central Ski Pole, basic gauges. The engine has good compression on all cylinders, services annually, has new NGK plugs, impellor, gear oil etc, is 2 stoke pre mix for ease and accuracy, recent prop and spare (original was sadly stolen replaced like for like). Always flushed with fresh water (muffs included).It has a manual bilge pump which we have never had to use just fitted for open water safety, long range stainless steel circa 80 litre bow and reserve 20 litre aft, fitted with heavy duty diverter and separate fuel line again for safety and ease of switching. The trailor is superb, bearings and tyres replaced last year, roller type, hand winch and is very easy to use and tow which make for quick launch and accurate recovery. The boat is currently located in Dartmouth and can be demonstrated, it can also be seen in Gloucestershire if desired. We have used for coast hopping and many fishing trips aside water spots, runs all day on less than £100 in todays terms if conservative. These were the top line in the day, being the largest of the range, I can only compare it to our Ring 21 but is very similar in terms of handling and stability and is not unstable in the chop unlike the smaller sister of it’s time, I know as also had a Dateline Bikini. In all a great classic, fast & safe boat ready to enjoy. Any questions, cleared funds and usual eBay rules apply.
