Smile Revenger 29 - Lymington- anyone know it?

Dear all,

Was down in lymington on Saturday and saw a very tidy Revenger for sale with twin optimax 225s on the back. It's a White hull with blue tubes- from a superficial inspection she looks to be in great nick!

Wondered if anyone on here knows the boat, it's history and how long it's been up for sale?

Also- does anyone have good/bad experience of these engines? I think I've heard of injector issues? Anyone had this?

Cheers everyone!

John

Twin optis : 200l/h at WOT doesn't help either.

Ouch!

Sheeeet!!!

I Need to recheck the spec but I think it's got an 80 litre tank! Presumably you'd be travelling at a reasonable pace though!

Would it really burn that much? My 200 opti averaged 10l/h over last season...

Granted thats an average on a much lighter boat, but I thought they were pretty economical motors...

Unhappy

Slightly worrying that a boat only two years older is up for 15k less and hasn't sold!

Mmmm?!

Cheers everyone!

My mate ended up putting an offer on this revenger (and a pretty cheeky one at that!) but never heard anything back- anyway he's managed to find another boat this week.

Thanks to everyone who posted with info!

John
