Halmatic Pacific 22

Hi

I am looking at buying a Pacific 22 that has been left standing for about 9 years. In overall ok shape just in need of love



It hase a mermaid marine turbo four rated at 180hp (have the original Dyno from mermaid) was new in 04 and has done no more than 20hrs. It turns over by hand oil seems ok and so does turbo and gear box. Would still do a full re build.



It is coupled with a Hamilton jet drive fitted in 09 and has proberbly done less hrs.



Tubes were new in 04 but feel solid and hold air. Could just do with a big clean.


He wants 4k for it and I recon it will need another 4k to make it happy again. I will be doing all the work myself.



What I was wondering is that if the boat ends up being to much of a money put what would it's as is value be or restored want would it be worth and what kind of demand is there for one so I don't end up with an expensive ornament I'm my garden for years to come.



Any advice welcome



Thanks jack

No idea on the value but I dare bet that engine will start and tick like a watch, If it did then i wouldnt rebuild it totaly, maybe get the injectors tested & change the valve springs as they will likely have some rust from standing but other than that I'd probably leave well alone.
If tubes are good and hull, as you say a good clean and your almost there.

That looks in quite good condition. The engine and jet look pretty clean and it looks like it has had a load of work done on it at some point in the past.

I don't really know about price but assuming you can get it all working properly, add a few bits of equipment and the engine and jet are in good nick, I'd say £10k - £12k. If you gave it a good wash, checked it worked and took photo's in a less overgrown location, I'd guess at £5k - £6k.

With outboards becoming more efficient and low tax diesel soon to end, there is possibly not the demand for this type of boat at the moment.

I think £4k is quite a good price.

Are there any identification markings on it? My ex-MoD one has a number engraved on the outside of the transom on the starboard side near the tube.

I quite like the idea of a jet.

The decks rot after a couple of decades but replacing them isn't too difficult, albeit time consuming. A few people have owned them on here and quite often do some nice conversions. If you search for Pacific 22 or Halmatic, you'll get a few threads.

Welcome to the forum.

Indestructible but slow and heavy. Worth knowing The market for reselling is probably quite small.

Thanks for the replys. I assumed it's quite a niche market.sadly the transoms plate was removed when the new one was fitted (good it has a faily new transome) so don't know the heritage ealsiy. I belive there is one on the tank but will check that out if I buy it.

Thanks for the info any more is always welcome thanks

True, but if the RIB is the 4x4 of the sea, this one has to be the Unimog

Absolutely, and much like a unimog another 200hp would start to make them more interesting

My pal has one of the larger unimogs he uses for his forestry business, I'd imagine another 200hp would equal "interesting" but maybe not in a good way, some things just aren't meant to go much faster

Most of the interesting stuff I have done in my Pac 22 has been independent of how much power is installed. It is often related to the depth of water which is probably also true of Unimog ownership.
