Here for sale is our 13′ speedboat which we have used on Lake Windermere for the last 6.5 years, the boat was used from our holiday home which we have now sold, which is the reason the boat is for sale. The boat was extensively restored by myself as a labour of love and learning curve, prior to its maiden voyage on the lake in January 2013, the following is a list of work carried out. Boat: Stripped of all fittings, seats, windscreen etc. Boat was then sanded down and the underside hull was professionally re-gel coated, the deck area professionally painted in metallic blue. A new 18mm marine ply floor was professionally fibreglassed in, complete with new seat mounting areas. New polycarbonate windscreen with new rubber seal fastened with s/steel fittings. All new s/steel cleats. New rubbing strip. The dash padding, sides and back rest were all refurbished replacing old wood with marine ply and recovered with leather cloth as used in the car industry. New carpet. Bilge pump fitted but never connected as engine is manual start, also dash has electric panel fitted but would need wiring. Boat cover is also included. The final 4 pictures show the boat during restoration. Trailer: Wire brushed down and painted with two coats of Hammerite, fitted with brand new hubs, bearings, tyres, rims and suspension replaced. Also includes an unused spare wheel. Whilst the trailer is currently serviceable it will require ongoing repair work in the future. Engine: The original 28hp outboard was part exchanged for a 10 hp 4 stroke Honda engine much more suited to the Lake speed restrictions and the ease of unleaded fuel. The engine is remotely connected to an Ultraflex box with the correct fittings. Newish fuel tank. Engine currently stored in my sons garage and was last used end of Aug 2019, so will require either a service or at least the carb draining and new fuel. As mentioned all the above was carried out some time ago and since then, apart from some crazing of the glass fibre in some areas, the boat is still presentable. Hull needs a good clean and trailer repainting with Hammerite. The bearings have been cleaned and re-greased every year, currently boat and trailer is off ground on blocks. Please bear in mind the boat, engine and trailer are from 70s/80s era and as such no warranties or guarantees are given or implied. Also note that the boat was used for 6.5 years after the restoration had been completed and as such picked up some age related marks in that time. All items are sold as seen and viewing before purchasing would be advisable. Will be very sad to see it go but our circumstances have changed. Should anyone wish to view or require any further info please message me via eBay in the normal manner. Cash on collection would be preferable. Thank you for looking and good luck in your bid.
