Glastron GT 160 previously sold on here pre-pandemic but the buyer was trying to ship abroad and couldn’t, so back up for sale.This is the same year and colour scheme as the one used in James Bond Live and Let Die, but that one was a GT 150.A well loved and well used boat, it looks great but is not pristine by any means, I’ve tried to show damage in the pictures but viewing is recommended. The floor has been replaced, the stringers reinforced and braced to the transom to support. A stainless plate is mounted on the transom to spread the load over the braces, we did this to add strength due to the high power of the outboard.The seats have been reupholstered in keeping with the original style and we have the old upholstery if you want to use it as templates.The gearbox has been serviced recently and not used since.Both the boat and the engine are from the 70’s, both are in great condition for the age but have been used well and will need looking after to maintain them.The gearbox and lower leg were replaced with a new OEM unit 8 years ago.There is no hydraulic trim with the engine, it came with a defective system when I bought it so I removed it and never got round to replacing it as we never really needed it.The trailer is thought to be original, I’ve added mud flaps and a jockey wheel since the photos but the tyres are pretty old, I would think about replacing them before trailering a significant distance. Our round trip to the lake is <30 miles so this is the main journey it has done for the last 15 years (*I took it on a 60 mile round trip for the service). New indespension units were installed around 5 years ago.Lighting board not included.Boat currently stored under a very expensive tarp which I will be moving to my new boat.It has a very old cover but I’d consider it as needing a cover as the sun has not been kind to it and it won’t keep out much weather.Comes with both a 4 bladed and a 3 bladed prop, the 3 bladed prop allows eye watering speed and the 4 bladed prop lets the boat plane quickly and is great for towing water skis etc. Both have been dinged and repaired but still fully functional.All in all an excellent boat and a working piece of history ready to be used this summer.Very sad to see it go.On 03-Jun-21 at 22:33:37 BST, seller added the following information:
Someone has asked if it is running so here are two links to the only videos I have on my phone, the first is the boat being fired up on return from the service and the second is a run in 2019 pre lockdown, with a friend of mine on the bow….. because, well, why not.https://youtu.be/78TK2posyq0
