Scorpion Wanted

Anything considered, preferably an inboard diesel around 8m.

I'm looking for this to be my next build so projects welcome.

Not too many Scorpions coming to market at the moment. (we are looking also)

There was one up in Scotland a while ago but not sure if that is still available?

Was also a superyacht tender that had a nice layout and Yanmar 315 but think that has gone also.

Talk to Stewart at Lymington Marine Sales (top bloke) as he will know most of them out there.

We looked at an 8.1 last year in Christchurch but wasnt for us. what i really want is my old 7.5 which i still see on occasion around the Solent...

I see Top Cat is for sale again, great boat with a nice refurb by a member on here.

Found one of them, I'm looking to do a complete rebuild so may be best to lookout for a project rib.

There's no rush just need the rib to be at the right price...

Haven't ruled out an outboard, but would prefer ib diesel

Scorpion Wanted

Try Shaun 07779640922 he had one on ebay 20k dropped to less than 15k last time I saw it; if I wasn't in the middle of the ballistic id have bought it at that money - by far my ultimate RIB a diesel scorpion followed a close second by another osprey. Damn you're ahead of me on my own list aernt you Alex!!! One day.
