Rare circa. 1962/63 Mk3 Dowty Turbocraft jet speed boat project. This model is unique in that it has the later hull, with small fins. This was a long-term restoration project of our late father who was interested in cars and boats, but we know little else about it. This boat represents a great project and when restored is a usable and fun classic speedboat to own – there are only a few of this model known to survive. The world renown Dowty Turbocraft was a fast (for the era) and safe boat for water skiing, as it had no propeller. The boat was able to be run in shallow water and was very manoeuvrable, due to the jet pump steering.The marinised Ford Zephyr 6-cylinder petrol engine has been removed from the boat and partially stripped of the cylinder head and ancillaries. It appears intact, however internal condition is not known, or if any work may have already been carried out on it. The Boat is supplied with rubber trim and original windshield and replacement. The trailer is also original, but is not roadworthy – it will need new tyres and recommissioning, so the buyer will need to collect on a car trailer. Estate sale and loss of storage, so buyer must arrange to pay and collect at the end of auction.OVERALL SPECIFICATIONLength: 14’6?Beam: 5’9?Draught: 9?Power Unit: Marinised Ford Zephyr MK 11Propulsion Unit: Dowty-Hamilton Marine Jet (2 stage)Maximum Speed: 35 M.P.H.Dry Weight: 1 ,350 lbsFuel Capacity: 10 Imperial GallonsSeating Capacity: Up to 5More detail here:https://www.dowtyheritage.org.uk/content/dowty-group/dowty-marine-2/dowty-jet-turbocraft-press-release
