1997 PICTON ROYALE 156 GTS 90hp MARINER OIL INJECTED ENGINE SNIPE ROLLER TRAILER I bought this gorgeous boat just over a year ago from a chap in South Wales, who had himself bought it from the original owner in 2017. The colour is a one-off because the original owner knew Dave Picton as a friend. He had all the original documentation but unfortunately couldn’t find it. The boat has always been properly serviced and winterised, and I think I’m the only one to have used it in salt water. It was properly flushed after each of my trips, but sadly I haven’t used it anywhere near as much as I’d have liked – only about 4 times last year. I had the motor checked by an expert, he says it’s in great condition and running well. The trailer bearings are fine, I properly washed them off after each trip. It is braked but I removed the shoes, they were disintegrating and it doesn’t need brakes anyway. I towed it back from South Wales to Swanage with no problems. Externally and internally the boat is in very good condition, as you can see from the photos, and the colour is exceptional. In terms of equipment it came with: – Original grey, fitted, press-stud, summer cover – Larger black winter cover – 18-pitch stainless steel prop for better acceleration – Flare canister – New bilge pump (still not fitted). In addition I have fitted/bought: – New winter engine cover – New glove compartment lock – New 2.5kg Danforth anchor with 3m 7mm chain and 100ft 8mm rope – New small fenders x 2 – New life jackets x 3 adult and x 1 child – New heavy duty battery and quick-release clips – New Rhinomaster 2-seater towable inflatable (you actually sit IN it rather than just hang on for grim death, much more fun) – New Jobe 12v inflatable pump – New quick-release spring-pin for stainless tow pole – S/h water skis and rope – Comes with nearly 5 litres marine engine oil … so that is well over £500 I’ve spent on new/additional equipment. I took people out in the inflatable on my birthday last summer… everyone agreed it was just about the most fun they’d ever had… we laughed so much it made the purchase of the boat and the inflatable worth it just for that one day 😉 The 90hp motor easily pulls 4 people in the boat plus 2 in the inflatable. Great piece of kit, sorry to see it go. Please call Ian on 07813 140054 to discuss viewings. Engine can be seen running at viewing/pickup.
