Wanted: Cougar R8 Hull or Pascoe SR8/9 Outboard Hull


I am looking for a Cougar R8 Hull or Pascoe SR/89 Outboard Hull for a project.



(I appreciate this maybe a "Hen's Teeth" task but I'm in no hurry and I love a challenge...)

Quite different boats those 3. cougar ex p1's about and a few ribs pop up on brokerage but probably not cheap enough to be a project.

Used to be an sr8 that was never rigged hidden in a lockup somewhere. Guy always wanted silly money. I may still have his email, I gave up haggling.

Sr9's are different again, I never been on a sr9 but the contrast between a cougar r8 and and a pascoe sr8 is massive. Not similar boAts in anyway in terms of speed or ride or accommodation.

Maybe some revenge projects about.

You are right, very different boats so I need to sort out what I want the boat for!

The initial plan was a project to build a fast RIB that I could "maybe" use for the Cowes - Poole - Cowes in 2017/18.

Having spoken to a few people now it is clear this is a silly idea as I like my gadgets which will not only add weight but also get beaten to bits!

So I think I will hold out now for a R8 to come available and refinish similar to this one:

Attachment 46464

Or I will see if I Cougar are willing to make a R8 Hull and Deck...

I know Airship make and sell the under license in the US and the have a dealer in Norway, the price for a decent spec is: 158 000.- Euros

The have a secondhand one for: 89 000 – 85 000 Euros

FINN – Airship Ribs
