Available Avon 5earider 5.4m - Southern California

EDIT: Meant to put put in for sale section. Mods can move if they choose.


I'm losing storage for this project at the end of the month. Unfortunately, I'm going to need to sell it. I plan on getting it up and running to sea trial it in the next couple of weeks. PM if you have any interest in it. I don't have a price yet as I'm still adding/buying things for it.

-5.4m Avon Searider, year unknown but I will check and update when known. Not registered yet but will do so prior to sale. Will have CA title (I've registered before in CA with just a bill of sale but this will make it easier on the buyer)
-Single axle unbraked trailer, 2" ball, total weight ~1,500 lbs, new bearings in last 6 months, not currently registered but could for negotiated $. Also, if you want to pick up with your own trailer, I could deduct what I paid for this one.
-Tubes professionally refurbished, all old rubstrake removed, new dark grey rubstrake installed in original Avon Searider design/pattern
-Yamaha 90 hp, two-stroke, freshwater (drove to Fresno, CA to purchase), ~100 hours, perfect compression
-New Yamaha 703 sidemount controls, new Teleflex shift and throttle cables
-Updated Teleflex rotary helm (thanks to tworototurbo!), new Teleflex steering cable
-Stripped and sanded console, patched all old holes, painted with two part poly
-New upholstery on two person jockey seat, new marine ply seatback (sealed in epoxy) and Starboard seat base.

Coming Soon:
-All new electrical: battery, battery box, marine grade tinned wiring, switch panel, etc.
-3" LED lit flushmount compass for top of console
-Standard Horizon VHF

Slow work... But it's been convenient to get stuff done while it's easily accessible in the garage. Some things done over the last month.

Electrical in the console:

The battery is not moving! For footman loops and a heavy duty strap.

No wing nuts - stainless nyloc nuts.

Also, I've now been told by numerous people that 2 awg was complete overkill for the battery wiring. Everything connection has adhesive heat shrink covering it.

Made this to cover the cabling on the back deck. Also, ordered some spiral wrap to tidy things up from where this ends back to the engine.

Well, overkill is a lot better than underkill...

Nice looking boat. Should sell quickly, I'd think.
