RARE CLASSIC GREAT CONDITION ORIGINAL TRAILER, BOAT AND MOTOR. ONO
We are the proud second owners of this 1965 Bell Boy 4.88m Half Cabin Speed Boat.
It has been under cover in a shed its entire life, proven by the shine on the deck that we have never polished just used mild soapy water. 98% of its life has been used on fresh water. The upholstery is in excellent condition as is the rest of the boat. The back to back seats expand to create 2 beds for those lazy days in between skiing and tubing.
The boat was made by Skipper Crafts Elizabeth in late 1964 and placed on a tilt Treg Trailer built at Underdale which we bought into legal configuration upon our purchase with a new drop axel, rims and tires, over- ride brakes and 50mm coupling. The paint work is showing its age but it’s a typical Treg Trailer solid and sound as the day it left the factory.
The Westbend tiger shark 800 motor arrived from America in March 1965. It has given both sets of owners excellent service up until it over heated 5 years ago due to a blockage to the water intake. We luckily found a retired marine motor mechanic who worked on these motors in the 60’s and did a total rebuild including pistons (now 85HP), sleeves, bearings, coils, water pump and housing plus nearly every gasket throughout motor. New parts acquired from a dealer in America. Have a few spare parts and will supply the details of the contacts in America. Motor done 26 hours since rebuild.
Reason for sale purchased a trailer sailor. Three boats are a crowd.
