Mercury 25 HP Four Stroke engine, model year 2009. A fantastic, economical, quiet engine, just serviced when purchased, by A.C. Outboards from Lincs. A low hours engine, not your usual 'thrashed', noisy, unreliable 2 stroke usually found on these boats!

Engine is truly in great condition bar a couple of small scratches as can be expected, easily fixed with some Mercury black paint.

Starts first time, every time, with brand new tank and remote steering, throttle tilt/trim mechanism. Engine purchased 2 months ago and totally serviced by the main dealer.
Tilt Trim to engine all new.
Garmin nav, and fish finder. Nav lights etc. New battery.
Other information:
Pappa Skunk's, was purchased back in May, and frankly was a good boat. I took her apart basically, re-painted the internal deck area and cuddy. The hull is totally original gel coat, machine polished, unmarked, and probably one of the best left in the country. She was anti fouled only two months ago with the old being completely stripped. She has two new mud weights, Crewsaver life jackets, anchors, new lines, new fenders, its fair to say she is in outstanding condition.

She is on the water at the moment in Cambridgeshire on the Grt Ouse, where she has been used as a Pike fishing tool. Sadly my kids who were the driving force behind her purchase are not all that bothered about fishing now or so it seems, and I have just started a new, unexpected, high hours job taking me away for too much time! Seriously for the amount of time we use her I cant justify the mooring fee's etc!!! An expensive mistake was made!!

She comes with a superb ex RNLI galvanised trailer, which has a brand new 'Indespension' axle, barings etc, a totally safe and utterly usable trailer, not your usual 'deathtrap'!

For viewing please contact me on the number or by email, this boat was purchased for 5K with a 'very well used' Mariner 60 hp engine, (seems to be the going rate) renovated, and updated regardless of cost, so please no silly offers, I'll bring her home on the trailer first.

She makes a superb river fishing boat, spacious and stable, obviously her 'sea going' pedigree is known the world over!

Genuine parties only please.
Thanks and regards
