Although over 20 years old, it's been little used and is virtually immaculate. In commission for about 3 months p.a. on a swinging mooring with fore and aft covers and anti seagull rotor. Carefully maintained and cared for, annually antifouled and wax polished. Stored ashore under full cover for the other 9 months.
Engine professionally winterised and serviced. I've owned it throughout.
She's great for skiing, picnicking, whizzing around (she's very fast), fishing, day outings etc. Boston Whaler UK

Boston Whalers are famous for their 'unsinkability' due to the very strong double skin hull format.
This boat's hull is undamaged other than the odd small scratch here and there. Stainless is 316 throughout, including the rail around the motor well as well as everywhere else.
There's a heavy duty rub rail (with some unused spare lengths).
There's a brand new front cockpit cover. The aft cover is rather knackered and probably will need replacing within a year or so. There's also an (unused) canvas cover which clips under the centre of the windsceen.
The Tyrone Snell trailer is not suitable for road use (it doesn't have wheel bearings so can confidently be used in salt water without problems) though I've used it for very short trips without harm. I use it for taking the boat out and up onto the quay each winter and then back in the next year. It has a new trolley/lifting wheel and winch/winch gear at the front end.
There is no navigation equipment.
1 x Yamaha 130 HP, 2 stroke outboard with engine lock.
Well maintained with (this year) new gearbox bearing (original became tight as corroded) and circlip and gearbox impeller.
There's also a spare (original) prop with slightly different pitch.
No sails - though there is an auxiliary outboard mounting bracket on the transom should some secondary means of locomotion appeal!
I've got some spare lifejackets (foc) if wanted.....
