I have owned this boat now for the past 13 years, she spent 12 of these just sat in the drive. Last year i decided to fully refit her as a safe and reliable inshore fishing boat for my son and myself, she was relaunched as "Cuttlefish" last July.

Since then the rest of the family have become interested in fishing/boating so i have just bought a 24 footer. It will be a shame to see Cuttlefish go as i put a lot of work into her and the interntion was to use her for a few years, hence the investment in the new engine and equipment. Overall she looks very good but she is an old boat, circa 1990 i believe, so the Gel Coat is not perfect if you look to closley in places. Equipment wise, and refit wise i doubt that you will find better.

I am a professional Marine Engineer and carried out all the work myself. I have used her for fishing both the Solent and outside of the Needles in the FreshWater Bay area of the IOW when the weather permits. The asking price does not reflect the level of equipment and the quality of the refit, i think that this is very good value for money.

There is also an Indespension Trailer which, although a little tatty in places, is sound and had new tyres, wheel bearings and jockey wheel last year. I am going to change a couple of the rollers and the mudguards before the sale completes.

I will consider selling the engine and boat separately depending on offers. the engine is currently for sale at £5500(negotiable).

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.
