1960’s/70’s classic style grp speedboat. Bought from a barn in the early 2000’s and stored in a workshop until earlier this year.New plywood decks, bearers, floor and seats were fitted whilst in storage.Boat has been completely stripped out prior to refit being started so will need new wiring, pipe work, controls, etc.The original Perkins 6.354 turbo diesel inboard engine was removed to allow internal work to be carried out with the intention of fitting a replacement or more modern engine on completion, but the project did not get to this point.The boat is believed to have been used as a passenger vessel for speed boat rides along the South/SouthWest coast of the UK until the 90’sThe stern gear (stainless propeller shaft, bronze p bracket and prop) have been removed and are included in the sale. Bronze rudder is still fitted to the boat, The old windscreen is also includedThis is a rare opportunity to own a piece of British powerboat history. Would make a great winter project to have ready for next summer.Boat can be viewed by prior arrangement.To be paid for and removed from site within 14 days of purchase.Delivery may be possible at buyers cost.
