Scorpion 8.5m + Twin Honda 225hp + Trailer

Scorpion 8.5m
2002 (commissioned 2003)
2 x Honda 225hp
Engine 1: 2003 approx 550 hours
Engine 2: 2008 approx 350 hours
Documented Service history - last 2 years at MB Marine
Layout: 2 x 3 jockey seats, full width sofa seat, suicide seat, large sun bed
Equipment: Raymarine E120 AIS/GPS/Plotter incl. 2018 Navionics UK Maps, Icom VHF, freshwater shower, 500l long range fuel tank.
I also have a 2003 Landcruiser which tows the rig very nicely. I'll throw that in for an additional 10k.

Hydraulic and power-assisted steering, white GRP, MKII console, non-slip grey decking, hypalon tubes in yellow with white flashes, hard nose with Lewmar hatch to locker, trim tabs, stainless steel A frame with navigation lights and fender rack, full cover, individual covers, Compass, twin batteries, flush fit stainless steel cleat in bow, fenders and warps, 2 x fire extinguisher, 2 x automatic bilge pumps, manual bilge pump, anchor with chain and warp, foot restraints, large bow cushion. Includes RM twin axle trailer (axels replaced Oct 2016) with hub flush kits.

I've owned this Scorpion since October 2015 and it has been brilliant as a very reliable and capable family boat. The layout allows for sunbathing on the expansive sunbed which is completely flat from the hardnose to the console. Lots of storage, seating for 10 (designed to carry 12), skiing eye, freshwater tank and shower head for rinsing off at sea. We've been across to France and down the south coast on many adventures - with the twin engines for real peace of mind and safety on the open sea. I've tracked the fuel consumption meticulously and the consumption over the last 1942.1 nautical miles has been 1.50077236 litres per nautical mile. The Honda 4 strokes are incredibly efficient with cruising at 23-28 knots and capable of blasting her to a touch over 50 knots.

PM me for any questions.
