belived to be a thornycroft built for the royal navy originally as a drone puller (target puller) she is 36 foot long , twin 174 hp ford turbo diesels (lorry engines) both running fine plenty of umph,a bit smokey on start up,(black) she'll get on the plane on one engine im told by the previous owner, she has new engine batteries (lorry size but marine type) not the car type that were fitted, the last owner had removed the radar but i have bought another with a colour screen thats also a chart plotter and a depth/fish finder with south coast charts (sd card) not yet fitted (bought for £1200) also a new dsc vhf radio, (supplied but not fitted yet,still in its box) she still has the old vhf fitted, a new led tv (19") fitted,with a new omnidirectional electronic tv antenna (not fitted yet) ,a new but now used toilet (euww) its got a microwave in the galley and a kettle (240v) new galvanic isolated shore power unit (stops any stray currents destroying anodes) when connected to the marina's 240v supply, new anodes fitted alround, although not shown in pictures its been "trilux antifouled" in light blue below the white line on the hull (four tins/ltrs @£125 tin/ltr) as with aluminium hulls you cant use copper type antifoul, trilux is formulated for aluminium , spare tin comes with the boat (for touch ups) she has 3 methods of steering , hydraulic steering wheel, two throttle levers ie; forwards and backwards, and individual hydraulic levers to open and shut the clams ( silver parts on the jets- second photo) ive fitted a cctv camera that shows the position of the clams, so much easier whilst manoeuvring in the marina, ive got but not fitted an anchor capstan winch with a brand new 12v motor (it was a 24v model but available as a 12v with this 12v motor supplied by the original manufacturers ) 100 ft galv chain, ropes fenders etc, if required the buyer can take over the mooring as its payed up till may this year (2014) (only if you keep this boat on it, comes back to me if it leaves) now although not tested yet its reported to have a design speed of 70 plus knots, mind you that would have been with her original engines twin pegasus turbines, funnily about the same running hp as the fords but very juicy but the navy could afford the fuel its more likely to be 40-50 knots but thats still quick, the boat is afloat at brighton marina so if anyone wants a viewing just ask, the engines are both started and run every week to recharge the batteries although she now has two solar panels (one per engine battery ) on the roof (now connected ) both with charge controllers, she's in the need in my opinion of some balasting as she's light in the water, she is of aluminium hull construction, wood uppers, no external proppellers to worry about, a question has been asked "will it pull a skier" not only pull a skier but whilst pulling in a broken down 25ft boat she got that on the "plane" as well, doing what she was designed to do, TOW AT SPEED, the starting price is less than the scrap value, so you won't lose, approximately £11200 of aluminium  in the hull (its about 1 inch thick in places) engines £3000 each ,gearboxes £1500 each, batteries were £200 each, she comes with two life rafts but both out of test,
