Cobra 7.5M Nautique 2004/2005 with Yamaha HPDI 200HP outboard. - £21,000.00
A well-built cobra 7.5M Nautique rib for sale, built by Dave Picton from the factory in Wales. The Outboard is a 200HP Yamaha HPDI which is a very reliable V6 outboard design (described as bullet proof by service engineers, simple to maintain, service and gives great performance). Tubes are all in good condition, looks great and goes great. Lots of money and time spent on upgrades to electronics and other areas over the past few years. (often gets admiring looks at the marina)
I will be very sad to see her go but needs must due to a project requiring funds. I have had her for 10 years. Everything works except a couple of minor issues where noted.
Has been used from a dry stack for past 10 years, so clean hull etc.
Serviced yearly and new spark plugs twice a year. Genuine Yamaha oils and spare parts used.
No trailer. Possible option of taking over dry stack space in Poole.
All the usual cobra refinements plus many upgraded items and additions including;
Removal of as many self tappers as possible (around lockers etc) replaced with marine grade stainless steel nuts, bolts and washers.
New A frame fitted a few years ago. Has a water sports towing connection. (Ive never used for water sports)
Dual battery system with auto monitoring and charging unit. BEP Marine 716 cluster.
Battery isolation switches fitted with emergency combine battery switch.
New negative bus bar fitted, and independent fuse block fitted for all electrics.
Yamaha 704 control box, fitted a new one a few years ago
12V stainless steel horn fitted into console with switch on console.
New steering wheel fitted with power knob
Carbon fibre effect panels on console
Raymarine E7D chart plotter and Navionics Gold card UK & Ireland, fitted with through hull transducer. (more accurate than stern mounted)
Raymarine AIS 650 Class B Transceiver (receive and transmit boat location)
Raymarine AIS/GPS Antennae
Raymarine AIS100 AIS/Antennae splitter fitted
Fusion radio and iPod internal dock fitted with two powerful speakers
Through deck drains fitted
Artificial Teak decking (much more comfortable on your feet)

Upgraded nav lights and steaming light fitted
Silva 70P compass fitted on console
Electronic heading compass fitted inside console (more accurate than plotter in terms of boat heading transmits data to plotter) Digital Yachts HSC100 (very useful if confronted with fog conditions)
Bilge pump, manual and auto functioning.
Yamaha HPDI 2 stroke 200HP, a great engine with plenty of grunt. Engine hours are 1427, this may appear high for some people but as most experienced boat owners know its better to have a boat that is used often with an engine that has been regularly serviced and well looked after than a boat that sits in a marina for months on end not being used, this boat while I have owned her has been used most weekends, serviced regularly and well maintained. (a new starter motor was fitted a few years ago)
Switches on console
o Console lights switch
o Nav lights switch
o Steaming light switch
o AIS by-pass switch (switch on to stop AIS unit transmitting your location, this is useful if in good weather in a busy harbour, so as not to bombard large shipping with your whereabouts and movements that can clutter their plotter screens)
o Manual on bilge pump switch
o Automatic mode on bilge pump switch (wired independent of main battery isolation switches, so when in on position auto bilge functioning is activated even if battery isolation switches are off, this is useful if leaving the boat on a mooring or alongside a pontoon overnight or longer, all other power off if isolation switches off)
Large folder full of receipts, service history, wiring diagrams, manuals, etc.
o Anchor and 8M chain + 30M anchor rope
o 4 fenders
o Storage boxes
o Boat cover
o Engine cover
o Engine freshwater cleaning attachment
Only bad bits are (easily rectified)
Rear bench seat needs re-upholstering.
VHF/DSC enabled set currently installed is an older unit (Icom IC-M411), I removed a newer unit to get repaired (Icom IC-M423), this older set is fully functional, the white plate surrounding the unit in the photos is a temporary measure, under this plate is carbon fibre and hole mounting for the newer ICOM set IC-M423, so use older set or replace with a newer set.
Speedo does not work currently, either its the gauge itself (all other gauge functions work), or its the Pitot tube or some blockage somewhere. (Have been using the GPS speed, until I could get around to fixing the gauge, will spend some time soon looking at the issue)
A much-loved solid built rib which still looks great and goes very well. Will be gutted when she goes.
Can arrange a small trip out for serious potential buyers.
Pictures, some show before various mods.
Rib is located in Poole
