this engine has been serviced at every interval required  and with this wonderful single engine she should make you 32-34 Odd knots ,

(This boat can also be supplied with a twin rig 2 x 110kw , personally I think a big single 221kw (300 HP) is far more effecient and no doubt dramatically cheaper to servcie and maintain.

at around 22 knots she is burning 9 gallons per Hour / 4000 RPM ISH, (max 5500 Approx)

Extras As this boat is so recent and in the "As New " order I thought I may as well just show the list as on the Invoice,


Note Plus VAT . (so list at around £98,000 !!)

in addition there are many extra bits

Crockery, Cutlery, various spares and fluids, and I dare say some bedding etc etc An exact list will be available soon but items such as Flag staff, warps, fenders shore power line etc etc will all be included, so a new owner should really need very little to step aboard and start using this boat.

The 20 hour service was carried out on the engine by the supplying Suzuki Dealers in June 2016, then it had a second service at 50 Hours in late

May 2017 , 3rd service March 2018 at 97 Hours , 4th at April 2019 and she has just had fifth servcie at 135 Hours run on mid January 2020.. a better record is unlikely !


Broker's Comments

Clever boats, and this one is in quite extraordinary condition, I dare say the owners will consider sensible offers on the already sensible asking price, But do first come and look at her "in the flesh" as it were , as she will not disappoint.  do watch the videowalks if you get a chance, which give a reasonable overview.
