Description

Where do I start, I'm having to sell my amazing boat due to serious back problems, I searched for months to find the perfect boat & engine package and I found it, this is a beautiful boat made for enjoyment, it's about 17ft long by 6ft 6"wide and due to the shape of the hull can run in only 18" of water if necessary, it's all in original gel coat and in excellent condition, it has a depth / fish finder - nav lights - compass - rev counter - trim & tilt meter - stainless steel swim ladder - anchor locker on front with stainless steel folding anchor with about 100ft of rope and chain - stainless steel auxilary engine bracket - fishing rod holder, this boat is made for having fun on, loads of seating around the back and from the centre seat a large table folds out from the back of the console, there is storage everywhere, under the console seat is a large storage area where I keep a few fenders and cleaning equipment, under all seats at the back there are storage areas, the centre back seat tilts forward to allow access to the fuel tank (25 litres) and under one of the side seats the battery lives, this battery was brand new last May and is a very heavy duty one, under the other side seat is another very useful storage area, as you can see from the pictires the whole front of the boat is made for sunbathing, this whole area lifts up on gas struts to expose a huge storage area, I used it for life jackets & towels etc, around the deck area are lots of blue led lights that look amazing in the evenings, also on one of the side stainless steel rails is a boat bbq, it's a stainless steel bbq that fixes to a bracket on the rail and takes one of those disposible self lighting bbq's perfect for the summer evenings to cook your fish on (or anything), there is even a fresh water shower fitted to the boat which has a water tank in the back with an electric pump, I have never tried to use this and it would need a standard shower hose and head to work, the boat also comes with a fully fitting heavy duty blue canvas waterproof cover (keeps the boat immaculate) I stored this under the front section when we went out for a spin. The engine is a bullet proof Johnson 70 HP 2 stroke outbord (the best) it pumps water like a fire truck and has never ever missed a beat, I've only owned the boat for 18 months and only used it 7 times (sadly) it has an hours clock on the centre console and the engine has only done 285 hours from new, I've only done 10 hours of this total, the engine has power trim and tilt and all works perfectly, just before I purchased the boat the previous owner had a new throttle & gear contol unit fitted and new cables (quite expensive), the engine is very powerful and would easily tow a skier or ringo if you wanted, I've never taken it to full throttle as I only ever fished on it when we did get out. I have loads of paperwork and service history for the engine and boat & trailer, the engines last service was 11 months ago and as said I've only done 10 hours since so all fine for her new owner. The boat does come with a brilliant snipe roller trailer, it's single axle with braked wheels and is all galvanised and in excellent condition, loads of rollers that all work as they should, the winch works perfectly and I have only ever launched the boat once as it went straight onto my pontoon mooring, I towed the boat from Bournemouth to Hayle Cornwall with total ease and no issues, the tyres are nearly new as well, I will also include a heavy duty lorry strap with the boat package (you would only need a lighting board and number plate), you can tow this with a normal car as the boat is not that heavy. I'm sure I've forgotten a few things and please feel free to ask me any questions you may have, you are welcome to text me as well (I'm often driving) 07785 767640, this is a very genuine package and the boat is literally ready to drop in the water and use, it's even got a full tank of fresh fuel and I've given it a good wash today, there are some fenders that I will include, obviously there is a key for the electric start on the engine and a battery isolater key and the fish finder, I'll be taking the boat out of the water and on to the trailer in the next couple of days so it's all ready to tow away, £5995.00 ovno
