2 x Zodiac MK 5 HD 20' sibs complete or just the floor

Hi guys. I recently picked up two Zodiac MK V HD sibs. My plan is to get them 100% ready with new motors and trailers and then sell them. I wanted to post them up now just in case someone already has a motor/trailer or maybe someone needed just the floorboards.

These two were owned by a well known sightseeing/cruise ship group and used in Alaska. They are well used but they are built like tanks. The end of their life span is nowhere near. Aluminum floors and inflatable keels are all there. Actual and current pics will be up shortly. Attached are photos I found online to show the same boat for size reference.

$1600 for a complete boat. They need a minimal amount of elbow grease but do not need any major repairs at all. Make me an offer if you just need the floors.

I'm sure I've been in one of those. In the winter, they're down in the Sea of Cortez.

Ok, I just spent some time going over the two sibs. Two things I discovered: 1) These things are heavy, and 2) I now have a hernia.

In the pics, you can see that they are in good shape. No sun damage or fading, just regular wear and tear from being used commercially for about 10 years (these were bought from the company in 2010 and then sat in storage). Wear patches and air patches here and there and the typical Hypalon hairs showing from the edges. A little bit of Hypalon glue will take care of any lifting patches/rub rail. I will include plenty of black Hypalon if you want to redo any patches or reskin any high wear areas. Seams are all intact. All the IC valves are there. Half are stiff (wont rotate easily) so they will need to be taken apart and greased. With the ones that are not stuck, I was able to confirm that those baffles hold air. Speed tubes and keels are all there. I was able to test one keel and a set of speed tubes to confirm they hold air. I will test the other set once I am able to lift the top sib off. Aluminum floors and front wooden floor sections are there (including the one that is glued to the tubes).

One boat has the aluminum stringers. This one I will keep the price at $1600 (the one on the bottom with the logo and name on the transom).

The other boat has a wooden stringer system, has a reinforced transom (looks like an extra section of ply was glassed over the original), needs the have the rear D ring patches glued in place and is missing a small end cap section of a floorboard. I am willing to reduce the price on this one to $1200 (this is the boat stacked on top).

Both are currently registered in CA until the end of 2017. If you are not up to the task of doing the finishing touches yourself, I can have it done for a reasonable price.

One sold. One left.

In the pic with the sibs stacked, the top Zodiac is the one remaining. Main tubes, keel and speed tubes hold air. Aluminum floor. $1000 for a quick sale. Current registration and mussel fee paid.

Knew it would sell fast. I don't want a boat quite that big. I'm looking for a Zodiac FC470 2009 or newer if you know of any that are for sale
Thanks.
