GENERAL: This is a good boat which I have owned for 3 years. I am not going to get the use out of it this year hence the sale but if I don't get the right price I won't sell as to buy another at this price would be difficult. The boat has excellent stability in the water, it rides well over rough sea and planes very well, owing I think in part to the hard nose and outboard stabiliser. Yes it is not the freshest or prettiest boat out there but the price reflects this. I would be happy taking this out for another season without having to do anything to it. The steering and throttle are a little sticky and possibly could be lubed/greased up but it is minor. A couple of the over-patches which have been put on to protect the sponsons (probably for divers) could maybe be tidied up a little, however for me it is about going out and enjoying the sea not showing off so I haven't bothered. The engine is a two-stroke, not a quiet (and very expensive) four stroke but again that is reflected in the price. It has never let me down and propels the boat very well. If you are new to power-boating this is probably a good entry level purchase. I am happy to give a full in the water demo to any purchaser. The engine can be seen working on the trailer when viewing.
