Avon Seasport Rib Boat And Camping Trailer For Sale – 500.00

Filed in for sale by on September 15, 2014


Avon Seasport 3.45 Rib + Yamaha 25hp 2 stroke OutboardWe have owned the rib for 9 years and had the trailer made to enable us to enjoy the boat and also to camp. The top box has locks and is demountable leaving a standard boat trailer. The trailer at present is a couple of feet longer than it needs to be due to the box by the hitchlock which used to hold our camping fridge. Should this not be needed it would be possible to shorten the trailer if you so wished. The vast majority of the trailer has been hot dip galvanised with the odd sections painted where alterations have been made. The trailer has twin axles simply as I feel more secure in the event of a puncture. Hubs are good and have been greased and tyres are excellent. The rib is in excellent condition for its age (we think its early 90's) as it has always been covered. The seat bases were recovered 5 years ago and at the same time we had the stainless steel fuel tank made (capacity 20 lts), which fits under the rear seat to give more foot room in the back of the boat. The steering has been overhauled and is really light and responsive. Remotes again are all working as they should. The safety cut-out has been extended to the front of the boat and is located on the dashboard for safety reasons. The tubes hold their pressure really well just requiring the occasional top-up, but certainly not an issue. There has only been one repair on the tubes a patch the size of a one pound coin just above the water line which covers an almost invisible pinhole. We knew there was a leak as the starboard tube would deflate a little over a number days, it took us 2 years to find it !!!!!!!!!!!!!. The only issue I can find with the rib is the top edge of the rubbing strake has come unglued at the front of the boat (pic 12) an easy fix. The engine is manual start and runs really well, pumps water as it should and has never let us down. Included in the sale are:-Anchor,chain & ropeBoarding Ladder2 x safety lanyards Strap for securing boat to trailerStraps for securing topbox to trailerSpare wheel (needs new tyre)Padlocks for topboxThere is a custom made cover that needs a good clean and a little repair but is certainly usable which I will throw in.This boat will tow a doughnut and is great fun. At the same time it is excellent for younger children as they are sitting 'in ' the boat rather than on the tubes. So that's the package, use it as it is or replace the topbox with a smaller car type roofbox, use the bars to carry kayaks or simply use it as a rib. Please feel free to come and view prior to bidding.A lighting board will be needed and I do not accept Paypal sorry.
