Merc 2.5 For Sale

This motor was originally fitted to a Phantom 18 called Hairy Mairy. A friend bought the rig a couple of years ago with the intention of stripping it to fit his Cyclone 21. He then saw an EFI motor for sale and also bought that so it sat in his workshop for a few months. We used the boat a few times and it went pretty well - 70 odd mph without too much hassle.

I bought the motor off him with the intention of fitting it to the Extreme/Cougar 21 hull I have for sale on here but lack of time means I'm never going to get it rigged so here she is for sale.

It's a 2.5 powerhead with a lightened flywheel, Boysen reeds, a 20 inch offshore leg and CLE box.

The prop is a stainless 23M 3 blade.

Lower tray has a crack in it so I have a new one to replace it with (just need the gasket) One of the rubber top cowling catches is missing so only currently held on with 3. Lastly one of the stainless link pipes which sits under the saddle for the power trim has a kink in it. It was being used like this so works fine but I would recommend it was changed prior to rigging on another boat. (costs around £75)

It will come with a loom, few gauges, trim pump, foot throttle and control box.

I am happy to rig it up on the trolley so you can see it running / do a compression test before handing over any cash.

Here are a few pics....

I'm going to ask £2,750 ono which is what I originally paid for it but open to offers.

James
