4.7m..

That 4.7m on ebay at the moment from Item number: 260845125360
I sold the hull August 2010 for 1500.. the guy selling was going to strip out his 5.4m and stick it all on the 4.7m.. his 5.4m looked good as hetowed the 4.7m back to the island with it and the 4.7m I sold was a good hull (should have kept it).
So if you think the price is right..
Boat hull 1500
Engine 75hp Yamaha 2500 - 3000
Trailer 500
Equipment 500+
At a guess...

Thanks for the reply, that is really good information. Do you know anything about why the hull was painted?

Hull paint..

I don't think means the hull it is the deck.. The gel coat was in good cond, but the deck needed all patches of non slip removed and redone so I guess that is what he did..
The hull was sound.. have some pics of the before if wanted to see.

For example, is the tube to hull connection the same as on standard tubes? Thanks for everyone's help. Woody
I had a 4.7 ex-MoD (from Matt), details here:

My new boat - Searider 4.7

When I eBayed mine there was phenomenal interest in it - that one is a very good price - especially with a 2 stroke Yam 75 on it - much more fun than the 60hp 4 stroke I had.

The buyer hired a container lorry from Ireland to collect mine and he could still have sold for a premium the next day - rare boats and advertised properly do very well.

There is an ex-military one up for sale for 5,900 showing the same pictures as you had in your link with the same land rover. Now I am really confused!

So did you sell this boat on ebay?
