It might be if B&O wasn't so utterly useless.

Nah, it's because B&O are useless and the site is up and down more than Alex Kingston in Moll Flanders.

Looks in good nick but the fit-out is fairly basic for 17.5k. Only 2 jockey seats, a small plotter and a vhf.

Odd that the hull was a year old before the motor was fitted and another 2 years before it hit the water.

Also odd is the twin tanks on a single engine install. Sounds like a possible cancelled order for a rescue or similar boat (1600d tubes and twin engine config) and got sold off as is.

I'm guessing performance won't be startling with 100hp on a 6.3.

Personally I'd be looking to get a good 2-3k off the asking price

Edit: here's what else you can get for the same money

Thanks Martini , my wife and i had it out for a spin yeasterday and it seemed ok power wise for our needs there was a big swell and about three ft waves and it took this with ease . it is in imaculate condition and has been well looked after and the engine has only done about 50 hours .

We are still giving it some thought .
