Shakespeare14ft speed boat with 50hp Mercury 2 stroke outboardplus Power Trim & Tilt (PTT) & roller coaster style road trailerHere is a great opportunity to purchase an iconic, awesome looking Shakespeare 14ft speed boat package complete with Mercury 50hp outboard and galvanised trailer.These boats are known to be a good all round speed boat and very well built.The boat has been in storage for a while but appears to be all up and running and starts on the key. I started it up today and it seemed to run ok and pumped water fine. The engine is equiped with oil injection auto lube. But because the boat had been in storage I have disconected this so that it runs on pre-mix petrol in case there was any problems. This can be simply reconnected if desired. But some people prefer to run pre-mix as I do.All the controls work – PTT, etc. It starts on the keyThe engine has a PTT switch built into the engine as well as on the throttle control, which is a nice touch. Being a 2 stroke as we all know the performance is far better than the modern 4 stroke.The boat in general is in good condition with no major scrapes, cracks, crazing, etc. They are extremely well designed and takes the sea well. It will take 4 people on the plane and are known to be a good ski boat. It will happily pull a skier, donuts, water toys, etc. Great fun all round.The galvanised trailer appears to be in good condition and is of a roller coaster type design with a winch, making launching and retrieving the boat easy. It comes with its own lighting board which works. So ready to tow away, just bring a number plate.Things to note, the windscreen has had a repair done to it and is not pretty. one of the front cleats is missing and the front tie up has had a repair. There is an overall cover with it but this is not in good condition at all. Hence its not in the photos. But would serve as a good pattern for a replacement and would keep the weather off of it. The marker lights on the mud guards are not currently working, but are not really necessary.Please bear in mind that the boat has not been used for some time so strictly sold as seen and it would be worth checking it over before using it. But it starts and runs and appears to do everything it should. So should be fine but might be worth getting it serviced. check photos carefully
Happy to demonstrate the engine working on the back of the boat.
Selling as now surplus to requirements.
