If I didnít have my Cougar project I would have been tempted to buy it, sell the engine's and put the money towards a new Yanmar diesel engine package. Would go well and be cheap to run.

If only it came up earlier i would have bought it instead of my Ring 20, and yes would be very nice converted to a powerful oil burner, speed and a little more comfort would be good. Im guessing the price will jump up before the auction ends though!

Having seen the boat before when it had the cossie lumps on it, and seeing what he's done to it now, your dreaming if you think he'll sell for less than £15k. It's defo worth more than that.

The only 225 I can think of is the Opti but they're not 2.5 - unless they're much older?

Exactly, way to much boat for the current money being offered. Up to £10g now so getting better. Still the fuel bills would be pretty scary with those motors!!
