Osprey Vipermax 6.5 with Optimax 150hp

Osprey Vipermax 6.5m and Mercury Optimax 150hp with stainless steel prop, both originally ordered in Nov 2000. Around 490 hours on the engine. Also comes with 1999 Mercury 6hp long shaft 2 stroke auxiliary engine with separate 25l fuel tank. Complete outfit in excellent condition.

Simrad RT1200 VHF radio. Compass. Twin Mercury SmartCraft Gauges.

New (May 2019) Garmin 5Ē Echomap CHIRP 54cv colour GPS chartplotter/sounder/fishfinder, with original in-hull dual frequency transducer. Garmin G2 chart for all of UK and Ireland (VEU706L).

4 jockey seats with underseat storage plus bench seat with locker on front of
console (and cushion seat at bow). Osprey discovery console with taller windscreen added for better protection. Underfloor 200l stainless steel fuel tank.

This year: New battery, new fuel tank sender/sensor, replacement reserve engine oil tank and sensor.

Full engine service (new impellor, etc) in May 2019 at Rib Shop.

Full custom RIB cover in 2016 from Cover Care in Chichester (cost £700).

RM twin axle braked trailer, with spare wheel and hub flush system. All 4 tyres replaced during my ownership. Brake cables replaced with stainless steel cables.

Mercury stripes on the aux engine were hand painted yellow by previous owner as an anti-theft measure. Could be tidied up, but the engine is a simple, reliable 2 stroke backup. Also fitted with security lock.

Iím not replacing the boat (not using it enough), so it will come fully equipped with things like grapnel anchor, foot pump for tubes, ClamSeal emergency repair tool, basic tool kit, Salt Away flush attachment for the main engine, flush muffs, inshore flares, 2 fenders, 2 security wheel clamps, miscellaneous bits of ropeÖ

Great seaworthy boat and trailer package. Donít come on the market very often. Stored in Southampton. £13750.

PM me or email vipermax.forsale@gmail.com

Happy to provide more info or pics.

Since Spring is (theoretically) approaching, I'm starting to advertise this again.

Couple of extra points - the trailer had a full service from Ben at Compass Trailers in the Autumn, including new brake shoes. Wheel bearings all checked and fine. Hasn't been in the water since.

Also discovered (after 9 years of ownership) that the yellow paint on the auxiliary engine rubbed off with cellulose thinners, so now looks a bit better!

I'm keen to move the boat on - kids have grown up and no longer interested and I've got quite a few other plans for the summer. Hence, happy to reduce the price to £13000 and sensible offers considered.

More pictures and videos available.
