Other information:
I'm selling this beautiful old boat on behalf of my Dad, who carried out a complete rebuild several years ago to high standards. Unfortunately, Dad was unable to complete the project as he lost his leg.

As the photographs show, the weather has since taken it's toll on the marine ply cabin, cabin roof and cabin floor, which will either need repairing or replacing.

The Iroko Upper Deck Boards and Apron were all beautifully remade and remain in good condition. These will require sanding and varnishing to bring them back to as new.

The boat was completely re-wired with marine grade tinned cable. All lights, instruments and switch gear were renewed. The system is 12 volts DC with a change over switch to select between the two 12 volt batteries. The batteries will need to be renewed.

The Perkins 4 cylinder marine diesel engine was completely rebuilt, with no expense spared. We have the invoices for all the machining work and the new internal components, pistons, bearings, valves etc etc. The crankshaft assembly was also dynamically balanced, resulting in a smooth running engine.
The engine will need to be recommissioned before starting, new oil, oil filter, fuel filter etc, and it remains free to turn (via the propeller). The cooling system has been filled with "Forlife" coolant so no internal corrosion or frost damage has occurred.

A new stainless steel fuel tank was manufactured and the entire fuel system overhauled, including the fuel injectors and the fuel injection pump. The fuel in the tank will need to be syphoned out, and fresh diesel added as part of the recommissioning procedure.

There are various items in the cabin that are included in the sale, an Anchor, a compass, life ring etc.

The twin axle galvanised trailer was custom made for the boat in late 2013 and it is very well balanced when towing. The trailer has done less than 200 miles and as the photos show, remains in excellent condition. The trailer is included in the sale price.

To summarise, this is a great opportunity to purchase an honest restoration project boat with a good GRP hull, superb Perkins marine diesel engine, and an excellent twin axle galvanised trailer. Fairly priced to sell to a good home, and ready to tow away.

I'm happy to provide any further information, and viewing can be made by appointment.

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.
