More Info

Welcome to the sell of my Classic Fletcher believed to be from the 1960s or 70s era.I purchased this rare project Fletcher with intentions to retro finish to original however I’m already halfway through restoring another Bravo Fletcher .. so will let somebody else have the opportunity to restore. To be clear the auction is for the boat only I intend for now to keep the Mercury outboard and trailer it sits on. I’m happy to deliver on this trailer just ask me for £cost, you will need to organise unloading or just collect yourselves with a trailer, always happy to help load. To the boat…. well if you check out Norman Fletcher you’ll see he built some very fast 18ft race and race water ski craft, this one was used for most of its life on Lake Windermere during 70-80s. Previous owner had begun sanding the hull however you can still just make out the old Fletcher race livery in the faded gel. Looks like previous owner had the intentions to repaint hull but never finished. Stringers solid, boat clean not full of water or mess, yes needs new floor, main bits are still solid so easy fix. Gunwell has been removed for painting, believe previous owner had the intentions of grp “blending in” like current Cougar, I think this would look great if done well, your choice. Front seats are missing (high back race seats would look good) however upholstery remains for rear seats, sides, dash etc, not perfect but usable. You will need new dials,steering, engine etc. Chines and lower hull area all very solid, I towed some distance with the tower of power hanging on the back, transom looks solid enough but suggest you do your own checks to be sure during resto. I have the old windscreen, its condition is poor it needs re building, personally I’d grp a low race (phantom style) one on, as used in the 1960s. Any questions welcome, we are near Maldon Essex, welcome to view. Cash on collection preferred, remember it’s an old project so tired but not dead, remember very fast boat so not for the faint hearted.Genuine no reserve auction always open to a deal px, looking for a 80-115hp outboard project, other marine items etc, whatever feel free to ask.
