Quicksilver 450 R Rib 4.5 Metre 50hp Mariner Speed Boat For Sale – 2000.00

Filed in for sale by on July 12, 2016


This is my rib that I have owned for around five years. I bought it from a man in Salisbury who used it for two weeks a year during a holiday in Salcombe, I have only used it lightly since owning it so the engine is only low hours but there is no counter of this. However, a highly respected marine mechanic in this area independently said that it had clearly only done a little work after he serviced it and had taken cylinder compression's. The tubes have no patches and hold air very well. I had the main seat re-trimmed a couple of years ago and they have new ply bases, the small suicide seat needs a re-trim as can be seen in the photo - I hope to get a quote for the this week. The Teleflex steering cable was replaced two years ago. The engine starts first time and runs very well. The impeller was replaced when serviced last year and pumps water very well - it was too late to run it up and take a photo of this tonight, I might get a chance later this week. When I first got the boat I thought I had a mis-fire and all three ignition coils were replaced - this actually turned out to be water in the fuel. The previous owner always used Quicksilver premium 2-stroke oil, I have only ever run it with this too. The autolube works well. The engine has power trim, adjusted at the throttle or the engine casing. There are two Quicksilver fuel tanks, one with some recent fuel as I took it out for a quick blast last Friday. The trailer is a Rapide galvanised single axle, I replaced the winch last year. I will have the wheel bearings replaced before it is collected as they are five years old and fine for short journeys but starting to rumble - I hope to get this done this week. You will need to bring a trailer board for the drive back. There is a spare wheel included. Overall a good little package that is a lot of fun and fast. You are welcome to view the boat in Whitstable, Kent, Collection will also need to be from here. I am only selling as I have a new baby so have less time and chosen to focus on sailing. The year is a guess but I think it is about right. Any questions please ask. I ask that you only bid if you have at least 10 positive feedback, unless you contact me first. You are bidding to buy not to look, I have been accurate with the description but this is not a new boat so do expect some wear and tear, please view to satisfy yourself before bidding. Cash on collection, I will ask for a £100 deposit payable through paypal.
