PLEASE NOTE. THIS BOAT IS LOCATED IN TORROX COSTA MALAGA IN THE COSTA DEL SOL SPAIN
PLEASE ONLY BID ON THIS BOAT IF YOU CAN COLLECT IT IN PERSON WITHIN 7 DAYS OF THE AUCTION ENDING
5 Metre SSR registered Sports Boat with Trailer included. The boat comes with a pull start Mercury 500 Outboard Motor which produces 50 HP
I've owned this boat for just under a year and I've loved it!! Sadly I'm moving to a smaller property where I cannot keep the boat so I'm now offering it to a good home.
Firstly, the BAD POINTS
- The paint on the top of the boat is starting to flake(see photos) as the previous owner didn't prepare it before they gel coated it.
- The interior is a little tatty and needs a bit of TLC
- The trailor is a little rusty in places, although it is fully functional
The GOOD POINTS!
- The paint work on on the hull is excellent, this is a solid fibre glass boat
- The 50hp engine on this boat makes it quick!
- Quick enough to tow water ski's, ringos, banana boats etc.... it's a lot of fun
- It starts first time every time!
- It's soooo much fun
- The auction is starting at just 1p with NO RESERVE!
This boat would suit either a first time boat owner, or an enthusastic that wants to restore her. The top half of the boat has been over exposed to sunlight prior to me owning, however all that needs doing is for the paint to be stripped back, covered with a pre coat and painted with a new gel coat. The seats are covered in an old vinyl covering which is starting to crack but you can recover these seats for less than a tenner each and it would really lift how the boat feels.
I have to admit, it is nothing but fun on the water, and I use it every weekend at the moment, mainly for fishing and just cruising around. It has a 22 litre gas fuel tank which can get you quite far, and it comes with 2 x 10 litre jerry cans, anchor, oars and fenders.
I personally would have loved to have been the one t hat tidied her up to her former glory, but I simply don't have the time or the space to do so. Whoever buys this boat will never have a dull weekend. It's perfect for someone living in Spain by the coast that wants a boat but doesn't have the money.
Basic insurance on this boat costs €140 for the year too, making it very cheap to keep legal.
I've tried to take the photos in an honest light, this is so whoever buys can see her good and bad point clearly. If you want to view the boat prior to bidding please call me on 695432953 and ask for Keith.
