Avenger 16 Inboard

A very rare piece of boating history: an original Avenger 16 inboard.
Dark blue hull, white decks, cockpit cover.
Original Mercury gauges in the black casting, mechanical trim indicator.
Needs a Mercruiser Alpha 1 plus a 120HP inboard to be fitted, seen a few on Ebay recently around the 1500 mark.
Original chrome deck mounted nav light, original windscreen, steering, controls all there.
Upholstery is usable but needs a good clean, as does the carpet.
Hull is in really good condition, no apparent cracks, engine bay all good, grey painted.
Trailer looks poor but has a new Ifor Williams axle fitted, brakes need connecting, I towed it from Hertford to Poole with no issues.
I had planned to keep it forever but realistically I am never going to finish it ...
Would make a really classic-plastic sports boat and just a little bit different with a great pedigree.
800 for a quick sale!

I had one of those with a straight six mercruiser in it, great little boat and really good in sloppy conditions. Good luck with the sale

Avenger 16

She's back on Ebay as we are having a big clear out.
I guess if one of you guys wanted her I would take 450 for a quick sale?
She has been sat under a tree so needs a bloody good wash off and the cover cleaning.
As I said before the trailer has had a new Ifor Williams Axle welded under, so she tows really well.
Simon.

Worth a message to tony Hamilton. He has one. Maybe use as spares at that price.

Really needs to go if anyone is interested.
Make me a sensible offer.
