Classic 1980’s Shakespeare shadow
Thornycroft PP jet drive (rebuilt with new bearing and seals
1998 Honda Super blackbird 1100xx engine (turns over and has
Twin axle braked trailer (tows great, no squeaks or bad
wheel bearings and the brakes work)
I purchased the boat and trailer from an old customer who
lived on the river, it sat in his garden for some years, the cover had a leak
and water had got into the floor and transom.
I removed the Mercrusier 3.0 and OMC sterndrive, rebuilt the
transom and floor with marine ply and west system epoxy, cut the floor and
glassed in a tunnel for the jet drive, painted the inside with 3 coats of
Hempel bilge paint. Flipped the boat over and sanded the hull and gelcoated the
transom and tunnel area. The jet drive is mounted and operational, the steering
and bucket control cable through-hull fittings have been made on a lathe and
The plastic screen has a clean crack but is functional, the
rubbing band is present and fits.
The trailer tows well, I’ve done approximately 120 miles and
launched the boat 4 times with it.
I have the airbox, exhaust manifold, coils, wiring, ecu with
the engine. When I bought it, I checked the compression and oiled the cylinders.
I took a 7-month temp gig as engineer on a superyacht in Mallorca
last January and intended to finish the speedboat come winter but I ended up
working the winter and now my position onboard is permanent.
The boat is located in Camberley GU15 for viewing / sale
Finish the project and have a lot of fun with this unique
and insane project or split and sell the items separately. my only reason for
selling is not having a return date from Mallorca and it is going to start
costing me to store the boat.
i have a towbar and deliver within reason for a fee
