This auction is for a Phantom 16 speedboat, Mercury 60hp outboard and road trailer.
I have owned the boat with a friend for approximately 8
years. It has given us hours of trouble free fun wake boarding, towing a ringo and fishing etc. The only reason for the sale is that we have bought a slightly
The boat was last used on the water just a couple of months
ago, and ran great like it always does. Today (8/9/18) I ran the engine on muffs
to demonstrate that it starts on the turn of the key & pumps water (see pic of engine). I took a video that I can
send to any perspective buyer.
Hull – Phantom 16 (16ft long) in white / black below the
water line. The boat has seats up front and a bench to the rear. These are
covered in black vinyl which is in reasonable repair (cushions always removed
from the boat when not in use). The speedo
and rev counter worked when the boat was last on the water. A new helm unit has
been fitted during our ownership. Ladder to left of engine.
The hull has obviously been sprayed at some point (prior to
our ownership), and as is often the case with boats, ‘Seaduction’ looks better
in photos that it does up close – please bear this in mind. There are various blemishes
to the hull & paintwork. That said, ‘Seaduction’ still looks nice and sharp
on the water.
Engine – Mercury 60hp mid to late 1980s pre mix 2 stroke
outboard. Electric start via Quicksilver remotes with key push choke & fast
idle. Power trim, kill cord compatible. Engine runs great and has never let us
down. It pushes ‘Seaduction’ along at a max of approx. 35mph. Engine
weather cover included in the sale as is a kill cord.
Trailer – New indespension units, hubs and bearings fitted
last season. Doesn’t look that pretty but towed fine when last used. New winch strap last
– The switch for the power trim only works one way, so you
have to swap over the connectors at the remotes depending if you want to move
the engine up or down. I can demonstrate this to anyone who wants to look at
the boat, takes 2 seconds.
– As I’ve mentioned above, the hull looks better in the pics
than it does close up – there are various marks and blemishes around the boat. The rubber strip around the upper section of
the boat is damaged in a few places and there is a section of the metal strip
that holds it in place missing (front left). Please don’t expect a new boat.
– We only tow the boat a mile or so each way to the slipway,
so I can’t give any guarantees how it will tow long distance. The trailer is
rusty and the wheel guards are in poor repair etc.
I have tried to be as honest as possible in this listing to
avoid any wasted time – please remember that you are bidding to buy. The
pictures of the boat on the water were taken earlier this year and the ones on
dry land were taken today (8/9/18). You are welcome to view the boat in
Appledore, North Devon (EX39) prior to the auction end. Please call me on
07974231332 to arrange this or if you would like any further info. Once the
auction has ended, the boat must be paid for and collected within 7 days.
Thanks for looking.
