Time to sell up.... I think

Hi Guys,

It looks like I am going to moving to the Isle of Man in the very near future.

In order to make the move, I need raise some money, so I think I am going to sell the boat, and get something smaller with a single engine...

I guess what I am asking, is what do you think my boat is worth? - I want to make a relatively quick sell, as time is running out before I make the move

Its a 2003 Tornado, with Twin 150hp HPDI, bought in 2006 (but the 2007 model)... twin 90l petrol tanks in the console, twin batteries, All cabling is above deck, runs through trunking from the engines down the center of the boat.

The engines are just out of warranty, but run as sweet as a nut, start easily, and give perfect perfomance...

The boat handles the rough stuff really well...

The boat comes with Standard Horizon Fixed DSC radio, Garmin GPS.

Has 5 pod seats, and a bench seat in the bow.


Thanks in advance

Ben

I've always thought what a 'proper' boat this one is.

The boat does 54.1 knots at full chat, burning 120/l, at about 40 knots, boat burns 60/l an hour, as for the range.... obviously it depends greatly on the speed you're dong... I've not really used the boat all that much since I fitted the new engines

As for weight - im again, not sure... as I've never weighed it.. it should be going in the water tomorrow, so ill get them to let me know what it weighs on the crane.

If anyone is around the solent on sunday, and wants a blast let me know, I think we're heading to play off weston shore, getting the ringo out, and bbq on the beach, hopefully.

No suggestions then?

I'm going to aim to come up with a price this week to get it listed. Needs to go as soon as possible

I've had some good times in the boat, and its sad that these times have to and end... but onwards and upwards .... will be getting a smaller rib for the time being - can't stand the thought of being without a boat!
