Basically a new or recently run in boat, but please read below.Ok, I bought this earlier in the year as, well, a basket case!From what I can gather, it has sat ON TOP of a row of shipping containers for anything up to a dozen years!It was quickly established that the boat was a very rare Vector Vagabond that in 1993 took the F1 speed record for a boat in its class on Conistan Water!It looked very sad, awful in fact, and most people would never have even looked at it - I guess I'm mad!Ok, roll the clock on some 5 or 6 months and the following has been undertaken...............The hull has been repaired and, strengthened, painted and fitted outNew tubes made and fitted by Henshaws - £600075 Hour Mariner Opti 150 (2010) sourced and fitted - £6000New Garmin Plotter (7") - £1100New Garmin high end VHF - £350New Hydraulic Steering and steering wheel- £400New Mercury Gen II controlsNew Seating - £1000New stainless fuel tank (100 litre) - £250New stainless anchor plus chain and rope - £200All new battery and all new electrics - £300Used Hallmark roller trailerPlus MANY MANY MANY hours of professional labour and paint to complete the aboveI have over 100 photos showing it all being doneIf you were to go out to buy a new 20 foot setup as above you would be looking at anywhere upto £60,000!This has all the benefits and simply has an engine that is effectively only just run in!lots of time and money has gone into this and the new lucky owner will have years of fun!Grab a winter bargain and be ready for the new season ahead.The boat is stored indoors in a well lit and dry unit and you are welcome to view by appointment.I am based just outside Hereford.Delivery anywhere in the UK at £1 per mile (one way) plus any ferry or crossing fees involved.If you're not ready to take delivery yet (if you haven't sorted a mooring or dry stack) then we will store it for you free of charge until the end of February 2017 to give you time to arrange.Payment in CLEARED funds, Cash is good but a bank transfer is always best!I'd rather not have a part exchange really but if it helps, then I will take anything at the same price as quote and on the same terms (deductions for dents, scratches, seat wear etc etc)If you want to part exchange a boat, please make it something interesting as if I didn't already have other boats then I'd keep this!All the best and happy bidding!
