Hi This is a project I started and now can’t finish. It’s a lovely classic 1970’s speed boat with a Ford Essex V6 3.0 engine and an early Castoldi Jet 05 system (for which I have the manuals). It’s a proper James Bond Boat!The boat is actually a Zeus 450 speed boat which was the original manufacturer of these boats before leaving the industry and Jetmarine buying the moulds to develop the Jetmarine Swift 15. Whilst all Jetmarine Swifts were fitted with an inboard engine, these were coupled to a PP Jet (with the exception of one which had a Hamilton Jet).So the first pictures were as I bought it and the last few show the boat as it is now with the engine, seats and carpets removed.Significant Information:The hull floor is in need of replacement along with wood structural beams of the hull and will need some significant GRP work.The V6 engine is now out of the boat and we have stripped it down. It requires an engine re bore and new pistons. Comes with trailer.I have a scan of an original Zeus brochure which may be of interest to you
Current Price: £100.00
