Welcome to my classified listing of a Vimar 465 fishing boat complete with engine trailer and electronics.
The Vimar 465 is a fast planning hull type boat which will plane easily with smaller sized engines.
It has a bow roller forward cleat on the fore deck and a stainless steel keel band.
There is a wrap around type fixed cuddy with a canvas top and sides to it.
The sides can be folded down slightly for more deck space.
I have replaced all the windows and window rubbers in the cuddy.
I am a boat builder and used 3mm lexicon which is the correct material to use.
The forward window opens upover to give access to the bow for dropping anchor or mooring.
Its held shut with elastic shock cord and hooks.
At the bow of the boat is a fire extinguisher and a storage locker with liftable lid.
Under the cuddy are two seats situated port and starboard which are foam filled.
In between these seats is a liftable lid which allows you to walk throught to the bow when upright or you can sit on it when its down.
The sides of the boat have stainless grab rails fitted and there is a foldable stainless boarding ladder fitted to the port side.
Along the rear edge of the transom is a stainless edge trim to prevent damage when launching and recovering the boat.
It has a aux engine bracket fitted to the starboard side.
The rear bench seat has a liftable lid giving access to a large storage area.
This is where the fuel tank and battery are kept.
The engine is a 1998 Mariner 4 stroke tiller steer long-shaft twin cylinder 15hp engine.
It is electric start
It has scuff marks associated with age and transport.
I cleaned the carb and put fresh fuel in it and have tried the engine.
The impeller works great pumping water very strongly which increases with revs
It runs great in forward neutral and reverse gears.
The engine oil is full and clear.
The prop is in very good condition.
The trailer is Snipe T700 which has a central spine and an axle.
It has central rollers down the spine and side support rollers fitted on poles to the axle.
At the front of the trailer is a winch post with winch safety loop.
It comes with jockey wheel and coupling safety chain.
Not shown in the pictures is a stainless lighting board holder.
Its professionally custom made and clamps onto the boats grab rails.
It holds a standard lighting board which will be included in the sale.
You will need a number plate with you to tow it away.
Fitted on the port side rear bench seat is a Garmin 140 echo fishfinder complete with transducer.
Next to it is a GPS which a small upright antenna fitted on the side of the boat on the starboard side.
I have recently bought the moulds to produce these great little boats and will be marketing them shortly.
