Delta 6.5m project anyone?

Seems a tad expensive, considering there's no engines, tubes will need a deep clean and assessment, new steering and throttle cables, assessment of fuel tank (assuming it's below deck), rewired, etc. Check transom. Turn it over and polish hull. Oh and it needs a trailer! Boat located in Tarbert, Argyll and Bute.

Having said that it's still a Delta.
*For the record - I don't know seller or boat.

I've owned one of these and tried a partial restore. It was a epic job and it needs a significant lump on the back or ideally twins. In the end it was better to flog it on rather than poor good money after bad.

It would need a total restoration from top to bottom. That said these are the most sea worthy boats I've ever been on.
