Other information:
For sale my very rare and unique 2001 REDFINN 6M SPORTS FISHER on Admiral trailers roller coaster trailer with 75HP Evinrude E-TEC 2004 outboard engine. Engine hours approx. 350hrs, last serviced summer 2017. Next service due after 300hrs or 3yrs, comfortable cruising speed 22knots at under a litre a mile- max 30knots plus in perfect conditions. The engine starts first turn every time!
The boat was professionally refitted in 2013 with new centre console canopy (over £3k) and fully rewired - see Gulfstream Boats YOUTUBE sale advert from 2013-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YjQn8LK43I
POPEYE has since 2013 been fitted with a LEWMAR Winch with self-stowing anchor bracket, new Captains chair (very nice one - over £400 to buy new!) 270ft of anchor rope and 6m of 8mm chain and Delta style anchor- the winch works great and self-stows the anchor easily with the winch operated from the centre console. The boat also benefits from console mounted Lowrance ELITE 5M HD GPS & Lowrance ELITE 5X Chirp sonar with a backup Lowrance GLOBAL MAP 3000MT GPS mounted alongside the SIMRAD DSC VHF Radio with 2 x GLOMEX VHF Antennas, JRC 1000 Radar which works perfectly - I fish the Dover straits which can get a bit foggy and there is always a lot of traffic so the RADAR makes fishing a lot safer.

POPEYE has 2 x forward mounted rod holders- great for drift fishing- with 3 x tube gunwale mounted rod holders for rod stowage while traveling between marks, 2 x transom mounted rod holders (factory fitted) and one Starboard mounted rod holder. The boat has a flush deck mounted hatch with large storage facility beneath the deck and 2 x transom hatches offering storage and access to the bilge pump. The freeboard height is exceptional and makes this a very safe boat if you want to take young children fishing. The clutter-free deck also make fishing her safe and easy to move around. I have fished 4 guys easily from her without everyone getting in each others way. The fuel tank is mounted in a seat box forward of the centre console and holds the 25ltr fuel tank with quick release fuel fitting (room for spare fuel cans also in seat box) - new fuel line fitted with 2 x fuel pump bladders (one inside the transom hatch and one in the transom well- 2 x fuel pump bladders ensures if one fails you can still pump fuel if necessary) and one inline fuel filter. The REDFINN has self-bailing decks so she can be safely kept on a mooring without the worry of the deck flooding.

I purchased the boat from a guy in South Wales in the Summer of 2017 while waiting for my Hardy 24 to be commissioned built as I didn't want to be without a boat for the Summer wreck fishing off Dover. I chose the REDFINN as they have such a good reputation for speed and stability as they are predominantly fished off the Irish coast so are renowned for their sea keeping qualities- I believe the hull designer is the same guy who designed the Warrior 175 hull.

My new HARDY 24 arrived at the end of November 2017 and I have kept the REDFINN as she is such a joy to use- very stable at anchor, can handle very rough seas and dry underway. I have made over 30 trips (she is a superb drift fishing boat due to low wind resistance) and the engine and boat have performed without fault, everything thing on the boat works without fault - my average trip is around 30 miles chasing fish on the numerous wreck out of Dover and POPEYE is fast and fuel efficient.

Being a 2001 boat with 2004 outboard she is not like new, she has marks commensurate with a 17yrd old boat but in general is very nice for her age, clean and tidy with everything working as it should!


POPEYE comes with inshore flare pack, fenders, mooring rope & spare two-stroke Evinrude engine oil. Fresh Dover white high speed antifoul applied.

POPEYE IS READY TO FISH WITHOUT THE NEED TO DO ANYTHING TO HER.
