More Info

Bayliner 2556 with 5.7 v8 OMC Cobra engine, over 4 months work into the boat and engine. Plus beautiful two year old twin axle hydraulic trailer. Full description, pics to follow I bought the bought the trailer and boat end of last year, I travelled down to Portsmouth to pick the trailer up and then onto Essex area for the boat. The boat was intended to replace my Shetland boat and live up loch Ken. To cut a bit of a story I have been let down massively by the new Galloway activity centre who will not let me moor the boat there fearing it is to big bearing in mind I had previously spoken and confirmed size weight etc. I am a bit fed up to say the least having put months of work and thousands of pounds into making a nice reliable comfy clean boat for the family. The engine had a snapped gear shift cable when I bought it ( common fault on these ) so I paid for a marine engineer to come down from Scotland who does a lot with bayliner engines, he fitted the new cable, bellows ( full set ), anode, impellor, starter motor, leg oil, seals, o rings, rebuilt the carb with full rebuild kit etc. I have receipts. I wanted it running great and most importantly reliable for when I have my family on. The engine runs great, sounds lovely and starts nice and easy. I have used the boat twice now for the weekend and done around 18-20 mile with it. This is classed as the small block v8 so is more economical costing around £1.80 – £2per mile at crusing speed ( 20 knts ) and obviously a lot less at troll speed. My 25 litre tank will easily last me for what I do just moving from spot to spot fishing and trolling over the weekend. The Hull is in nice condition, few marks here and there as expected but nothing major. I polished the full hull myself with machine buffer now has a deep shine. My friend works along the road at International Paints and convinced them to use the boat as one of their trial boats for new antifoul paint. Basically International themselves came to our local boat yard on the tyne ( friars goose ) and over a few days a team of them profesionally stripped the old stuff off and re done with new paint which is not available on shelves yet but is designed to last ten years between applications. Interior is pretty much unrecognisable from when I got it, all the ceiling carpet has been painstakingly vax washed so is super clean, every inch of it even the double birth under the corner settee. Full new carpets were fitted with thick underlay aswell, footstep was rebuilt, new LED lighting inside, new kitchen worktop to give more space and also to get rid of the horrible alcohol / electric one these boats originally come with. A new gas four burner hob fitted. Radio cd player. All the seat cover have came off, been hot washed and the foam also hot washed. These boat are notorious for letting rain water in around the rear door window frame area over time, this has all been completely re done and painted grey to match hull and give a modern look so you will have no more problems with this. I also removed the old sea toilet and full toilet system ( which wasn’t a pleasant job lol ) so there is not a trace of it or a pipe left so no nasty smells etc plus saves weight. New auto bilge pump fitted aswell as standard 2. Full LED lights fitted to rear bathing platform which lights the water down to about 5-6 ft which looks great at night when your moored up, also the deck inside the boat as seen in pic. Couple of things I didn’t get round to doing as of yet, need small brass screw on connection for bottom of new hob to fit rubber gas hose, needs a new steering cable for upper deck if wanting to use from upstairs ( £120-140 ) more info to follow any questions 07411644818 Paul Boat is 90′ model, approx. 28-29 ft long and 10 ft wide
