1994 Mustang 1600 halfcabin boat. Boeing dual axle trailer can take a larger boat. Has new brake cable, not sure if anything will be required for roadworthy on trailer. 2006 Yamaha 90h 2 stroke has been on this boat since purchased new in Townsville, has recently been fully serviced and checked by Yamaha in Raymond Terrace, running well. Only has around 130hrs use, first 100hrs was mostly 20nm trips off Bowen Qld. Boat does around 30kts at WOT and cruises over 20kts at half to three quarter throttle. I have often headed out 20nm up north, so probably around 50nm on a 75 litre tank with fuel left on my return, however I have always carried reserves on such trips just in case. Hull has been boatcoded in NSW. Hull is in reasonable condition but has had usual usage as a fishing boat. Transom and floor feel good, no obvious soft spots, but it is a 1994 model and have no idea of anything has been done to the stringer floor or transom in its history. Appears original to me. When I purchased the hull it appeared it had been holed on the port side adjacent the forward bulkhead just above the chine. The repair was obvious but has since been faired and tidied. The repair has been good for the time I have had the hull which is around 10 years now. A few years back I did some repairs to the outboard well area. The outboard is a long leg version and it sits on an alloy block, hence there would be a lot of leverage forces applied locally to the transom. I like it that the powerhead is up out of the water. It had started to get stress cracking in the corners where the well meets the transom. On inspection I noted that on the inside seemed to rely on bog to hold the aft surface of the well to the transom. Hence I have laid a few layers of fiberglass cloth and epoxy resin to those areas to add strength as well as ground out the stress cracks and added more cloth and resin to those areas. The finish inside the well is not perfect as I had intended to changed the arrangement to a pod setup but plans have changed. The outboard was removed for this repair. Will be selling unregistered as still registered in Qld. 75litre above floor fuel tank. Dual battery system, bilge pump. Have new gunwhale rubber to go on boat still in box. Humminbird side imaging sonar, wide colour screen with East Coast charts installed. Boat is well used, seats good condition. VHF radio Fiberglass canopy has been fabricated to protect from sun and rain, easily removed if not wanted. Home made, practical but not particularly pretty. The cockpit swivel seats are in good condition, and are mounted on top of two boat seat boxes. The boat seat boxes are two layers of 6mm marine ply encased in epoxy resin and fiberglass matte. Very strong and doubt they will ever rot as fully encapsulated in epoxy. The port side box has a small ice box on the bottom, and the lid of the icebox incorporates a storage tray, then a lid on top of that that the seat is mounted too. The starboard seat box is all storage. Offering for sale as no further use, and circumstances changed. Will accept payment only after inspection of the boat so you know what you are buying.
