Sellers description: We have had this boat for 5 years It had 100 hours use on the clock when we bought it and we have added a further 42 hours to this. It has been kept under a canvas cover when not in use. Reason for sale. We are not getting enough use out of it. We have used it for private coastal excursions and towing an inflatable sea mat.
Buyer collects .
"Janhazel" - Humber Ocean Pro 6.3 RHIB powered by 150hp Yamaha V6.
Everything works as it should, the tubes hold air absolutely no leaks, no bother. The engine is 100% reliable, as sweet as the day it was born, starts, growls, does the biz and pumps water !
Very seaworthy and fast ridged hull inflatable craft, large size hypalon tubes, deep V hull. She has had MCA licence Category 3 (20 miles offshore and night passage) for 10 persons, this expired in February but would require very little effort to obtain again if needed.
We have owned her for 10 years and she was used by us for light commercial work: photographic/ media assignments, scientific surveys, underwater sample taking and diver training (NOT powerboat training !)
There is no reason that this boat will not see another 10 trouble free years or more without any significant repairs if well looked after and correctly maintained. Some minor wear and tear but still in very good condition
GPS, GMDSS, VHF, sonar and other safety equipment. Jockey console with stowage hatches, dive bottle rack, forward steering controls , tilt/ trim,electric start, A-frame, navigation lights, deck light, radar reflector, auto bailer, hand pump bailer, bow locker, anchor, chain, ropes, 90ltr built in fuel tank, compass, twin batteries with isolator.
There have been some quality custom mods done like stainless switch panel, stainless forward control guard, stainless liferaft bracket, there is a cover and lots of other useful extras.
Roller Coaster 5 trailer (brakes removed) with new bearings, winch, U bolts and wheels.
Always launched and retrieved when needed, not left on the water for any length of time. Rinsed off and run through with fresh water after every outing without fail ! Mainly kept in our barn or under cover; Pembrokeshire, West Wales.
Built 2000 - Meticulously maintained and used carefully. Plenty of service history.
She has been kept serviced and run up every year - 912 running hours on the clock so that is about 7 days of use every year since she was built, or in car terms less than 5,000 miles !
I have been advised that the boat is worth 10k, but i do need the space and it is pointless us servicing, running her up and keeping her ready to go as we will not be using her for the forseable future.
So i am open to reasonable offers, just a fair price, thanks.
