Other information:
I purchased this boat in 2012, then in 2013 she was completely stripped down to bare wood, with no expense spared I had a professional boat builder replace all rotten planks and the whole stern was replaced.
I then carried out all the rest of the work to bring Eclipse up to the standard she is now, I also had hydraulic steering fitted and auto pilot, last year she had a new starter motor July 2019
Before I brought her, the previous owner had the engine and gearbox professionally rebuilt and the boat had a total re wire, roughly 1400 hours on the engine since the re build.
She was last out of the water in March 2019 for anti-fouling and her general look over.
This is a great boat that can fish up to 8 anglers and only uses 0.85 of a litres per mile at 7.5 knots, a whole day out running about normally costs no more than £20.
I used her for charter angling on weekends, she is still coded for 10 + 2.
Would make a great private boat, take some mates out with you and get them to pay towards the cost and you can have a fishing boat that will pay for itself.
Reason for the sale is I am in the middle of purchasing a bigger boat.
Don't be put off by wooden boats they are heavy and stable, and you can buy a lot of boat for the money.
I have struggled keeping up this past year with little jobs odd jobs due to having a second boat but a little bit of tlc in areas would bring her back to a very high standard, but she certainly is a solid lump.

DO NOT SEND MONEY TO SELLERS YOU CANNOT VERIFY AS GENUINE.  If possible, travel to view the boat or equipment yourself and only buy once you are happy with it.
