About the Boat

Although she’s a little sun beaten in places, the Motor has only recorded 160 hours and it’s a big Mercury 115Hp EFI four stroke that delivers exceptional performance and fuel economy. As an added bonus for the buyer, our price also includes the engines annual service will be completed for you in the low tow away price! The motor has spent a third of its hours at idle speed according to the graphed RPM hours graph on the computer diagnostic report. Naturally the engine is backed by a limited BIA engine warranty for buyer’s confidence. We also offer an on water demo upon handover /payment if you haven’t owned a boat before giving you confidence and tips on best practice.

As the photos show, this is one big 18 footer with uncluttered decks ideal for the sports fisherman and those that enjoy throwing out the crab pots. The boat features draining decks with transom scuppers ideal when up North and you get one of those torrential down pours… Underfloor is storage for either a kill tank and up the under the bow plenty of storage is provided for the safety gear and spares etc.

Over head a bimini top provides some shelter from the sun and attached to the rear of this a rod storage rack is fitted helping to keep the rods safe and high when not in use. The bimini can also be easily folded down if required for storage. 2 pedestal seats are supplied and there a number of spots that these can be positioned to help balance the boat.
