Broker's Comments

This is a very nice 40ft Cruiser Stern that has been recently refitted and surveyed. The owner has had the boat for 4 years but is now looking to go up a size to a widebeam. It has been out of the water for the past 12months whilst the majority of the work listed below has been undertaken thus making it easier to view and inspect.

The boatyard £400 crane fee has already been paid for so the new owner can have it lowered into the canal or onto a wagon should you wish it to be transported elsewhere in the country.

Engine Bay:

Engine was removed out of boat to be serviced, overhauled and dressed.
Bay completely stripped back to bare steel, rust protected, undercoated, primed & finished with at least 12 layers of paint.

All pipe work & electrics overhauled & ducted.
Eberspacher hydronic DW5 overhauled & serviced. This is operated via a timer so you can come home to a warm centrally heated boat.

New bilge pump, float switch and display panel fitted.
New Starter battery & new additional Leisure battery installed (3 Leisure in total).
Digital Voltage gauges installed inside boat for peace of mind viewing.
Grease gland relocated on deck for easy access too.

Tank has been completely cleaned out and flushed incase of diesel bug, a full tank of fuel is now in place fully treated to prevent diesel bug occurring .
A brand new 20litre Jerry fuel can is also provided.

Roof completely stripped back to bare steel, rust protected, undercoated, primed & finished with at least 17 layers of paint.

Central part of roof has been fully anti slipped too for safety.

Hull sides have recieved 6 coats of Hempel (2 Pack ) blackening. This is NOT the cheap crappy bitumen. Just 2 coats give an estimated 4 to 5 year protection.

Ample sockets have been installed throughout.

Walls and Ceilings have been completely fitted out with expensive decorative upvc wall panelling to modernise the boat, This panelling makes it bright, clean and uplifting, its easy to clean, free from condensation as it provides additional thermal insulation.

The top walls are primarily white with a chrome fleck incorporated giving it a sparkle / rainbow reflection in various lighting.
