The engine's not in the sale price, and I don't think I'd stick an 85hp on it anyway.
You've got me thinking lads!! Wife comes out of hospital with our newborn tomorrow. Wonder if I can get it in the back garden before she gets back?

The engine is a Force. Stay away-they're bloody awful old tech with very bad spares availability.

The boat however is a bargain as long as his description is accurate. The transom is highly unlikely to have been damaged by having an 85 on it-the boat is rated to 70.

Is it a 4.7? Difficult to tell from the pics, but the toob styling looks more like an older 5.4

Especially a Force 85
A mate of mine used to have a SR4.7 with a Yam 90 on it - chine walked a bit, but went like $hit off a $hovel

Looking at it again, I think it is a SR4.7. It's like the one my mate had without the flooding hull (even better). Looks good value 'cos they're quite rare and you won't find a much better boat in that size. Shame there's no pics of the hull

I think it might only be rated to 70hp due to length-they look very much like a shortened 5.4-almost as is they come from the same mould?

This one's a Searider - even though it's advertised as an Adventure.

Yep - it's definitely got more SR5.4 than SR4.0 in its genes.

There were a couple of them down here in the early '90s, the centre console version with the Yam 90 and a 'Deluxe' with 'bonnet', windscreen, etc., fitted with a Jonny 70 IIRC. Both good boats, but the one with the Yam 90 was a rite larf
