This is a lovely example of a much loved Cobra 8m, powered by the powerful Yanmar 280hp diesel engine. This engine has had little use, only covering just over 300 hours in 14 years and she was most recently serviced this spring (2016).
Highlights of this boat include:
All new tubes last year
New hydraulic steering this year
Two engine compartment bilge pumps fitted this year
Bravo leg was refurbished this year with new hydraulics
The hull was built in Dec 2002 and was first sold in spring 2003.
She is fully coded for commercial use including required modifications to cockpit and engine bay pump/drainage.
The current owner keeps her at a dry stack.
More specifications she has with include:
4 wheel trailer
Full winter cover
Current flare pack
Throw bag Lifebuoys
First aid kit.
Owners Statement – ‘We do not really want or need to sell her, but as she is not used, it is just a waste of a lovely boat. I have used ribs for 40 years. This one is extremely good, very strong, very comfortable and amazingly cheap to run - we only filled her up once last year at a cost of £160! She is a well found boat in very good order with very light use.’
