2003 Velocity VR1 Hull For Sale
2003 Velocity VR1 Hull For Sale.
Designed by the legendary racer/boat builder Steve Stepp and built at the Velocity Factory in Sanford Florida, the VR1 is 28.5 foot long and approx 8’2” wide.
The hull is a deep Vee design that incorporates a patented wide pad and a notched transom which allowed it to gain a APBA record in 2003 and retain it to this date.
These are fast and efficient hulls that have won many races as well as providing fuel efficient pleasure boats.
This Hull was originally built as a hi spec pleasure boat and was supplied with a Mercury Racing 575Sci mated to a Bravo XZ drive in 2003. Some time later it was stolen and stripped and all components sold off and its one of a kind custom paint job was removed to avoid detection. After eventual discovery by the Authorities it was put up for auction and purchased by the Velocity Factory who used it for some testing work.
I purchased the Hull from Velocity in late 2009 and shipped it to the UK where it has sat under cover on its trailer for the last 10 years.
The bare hull comes fitted or supplied with the following:
Tinted Plexiglas screen
Sliding cabin door
Accon Marine Stainless pop up Nav light
Accon Marine Stainless pop up cleats
80 Gallon Fuel tank
Non slip cockpit flooring
Through hull fittings
Stainless telescopic boarding ladder
Red Sunbrella Cockpit cover
The hull is sitting on a trailer, but it is not road worthy. Buyer to arrange collection of hull.
Here is an opportunity for someone to build a competitive race boat or a fast efficient pleasure boat to their own specifications.
Located in Southampton UK.
