The Importance of Reliability

You’ve probably heard the old saying, “The two best days of a boat owner’s life are the day they buy the boat and the day they sell it”….

Well, I’d hazard a guess that this expression was coined by someone with an unreliable boat, of which there are many!

There’s nothing that will ruin your boat ownership experience as much as a boat that gives you mechanical trouble.  It’s difficult enough to find the time to go boating when you’ve got a busy family and a career to take care of.  When you do make time to get to the boat, the absolute last thing you want is for the boat to give bother – whether it won’t even start or is just problematic to the point where you don’t have the confidence to take your friends and family out on it.

Believe me, I’ve been there.  And it’s no fun… at all.   You very quickly get the point of regretting ever setting eyes on the boat and you just want rid of it, come what may!

If you’re looking at this particular 26ft Sports Cruiser with a view to buying, then I’m sorry to tell you that your boat search has taken you into a dangerous world of potentially nightmarish unreliability…

But.  Fear not…

Because this particular mature Sport Cruiser (being a stunning 2005 Four Winns V258 Vista, with a beautiful colour scheme and all the right spec) isn’t like all the rest of them out there… 

This is the diamond in the rough.

It doesn’t have it’s original, near-knackered, raw water cooled, old-school, high-hours engine and sterndrive… (like virtually ever other mid to late 2000s sports boat).

This boat has been repowered only last year (and only 29.9 engine hours ago!) with a Brand Spanking New Volvo Penta 300HP Motor and matching Brand Spanking New Duo-Prop Sterndrive!

Thereby breathing new life into this boat and ensuring that you have a bang up-to-date and RELIABLE drive train for years to come!   You don’t have to worry about dealing with all the niggly, sometimes major, and always expensive, faults that boats of this age tend to experience.  You can rely on this boat to start, and run beautifully, every weekend and deliver the peace of mind only normally associated with a brand new boat, at around 3 times the price!

Not only this, but this boat is also cosmetically beautiful with her striking sand hull colour band, accented with anthracite pin-stripping and finished off with brand new teak effect foam flooring.  It also boasts an excellent spec level with up-to-date Raymarine Chart Plotter, Garmin VHF Radio, Eberspacher Heating, Volvo Penta warm air blower system, and all mod cons that you’d expect on a nice 26ft weekender… shore power, toilet/shower compartment, galley, TV/DVD player, camper covers, and 4 comfortable berths in 2 cabins.     

It’s a fabulous family sports boat that will be a pleasure for long day trips, as well as performing water-skiing duties, or even spending weekends away on the water.  Small enough to tow on the road and captain single-handed on the water, but big enough to accommodate groups of up to 8 for coastal or inshore trips.

As a stock boat of ours this Four Winns has been professionally prepared for sale by us, everything is working correctly, it’s serviced, antifouled and ready to go to the water for the 2024 season. 

Not only does it have Volvo Penta Warranty on the power package until May 2024, it is also being offered complete with our Comprehensive In-House 3 Month Warranty, to carry on from then until the end of the summer, so you can buy with complete peace of mind.

This has to be the best example available and it is an unrepeatable deal… you just don’t get boats this nice with a virtually brand new power package at this price point.

This boat is immediately available.  We can easily arrange delivery throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe and Part Exchange is possible.
