Anybody know this boat ?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2307035201...84.m1423.l2649

Hi Guys,

I have a pal that bought my Lotus 350 and now wants to get into boating and is interested in the Sunseeker above. Does anybody have info on this boat.

thanks ,

Mike

Well not sure about that particular 24 , but it was always better with the Volvo 271 DP , the duoprop really suited the 24, the dash layout on that boat also looks odd , not the normal place for trim tabs, and trim switch.

The price is nothing too special there are younger ones around for similar money.
24 is was a great boat , just have to make sure you dont rip the platform off

Thanks for that info. I have passed it on and as you say , he has found another with the volvo installed at around 10K. and thats cheap boating I reckon ! ( yeah, I know maintenance can be expensive but try buying a similar spec to that as a 2011 build )

tahnks again ,

Mike

No problem, there were a few made with the AD 41 diesel ( and even the odd one retrofitted with KAD 42, the KAD made a really nice boat,especially with the cost of petrol these days !
