Why I Can’t Keep These Boats in Stock…

Every time that I get a trailerable diesel sports cruiser on my books it sells faster than you can shake a stick at it! Demand for them is fantastic and it’s really pretty easy to see why. They work so well as either a step-up from a sportsboat or as a step down from something bigger and more difficult to manage. They provide genuinely comfortable accommodation for weekends on board, while still retaining sporty performance, all in a package that you can tow home at the end of the season if you wish.

Off the breed in general, the Monterey brand is particularly desirable. People love them for their top-notch build quality, luxurious finish and striking looks. This 2004 265 cruiser is one step up from their entry level 250 model and you really notice that extra couple of feet onboard. At almost 27ft long and with it’s forward facing radar arch she has striking looks and a genuine ‘big boat’ appeal, and sea keeping. But the beauty of it is that at 8’06″ wide and under 3 tonne she is still trailerable. I reckon there 4 big reasons to buy this boat.

The 4 reasons to buy are:

  1. It’s Diesel; so the fuel economy and reliability are excellent. The big Yanmar 6 cylinder motor is not only bulletproof in terms of reliability but with 315HP on tap she gets up on the plane with ease and powers to a top speed well over 30 knots. Check out the video to see just how well she is running and how smooth the big diesel sounds.
  2. It looks the part! With the rich black gel coat and forward facing radar arch this is a visually impressive boat that looks bang up to date. And with the gel coat on this boat having a factory fresh shine, she could easily pass for a few years old.
  3. It’s the right size to be a genuine all rounder – with cabin accommodation that you can actually use (with 4 comfortable berths & a stand up heads compartment) and great socialising space on deck it’s a fantastic boat for day use and extended overnight trips alike.
  4. It’s big enough to be very capable in the sort of conditions we’re used to around the coastal waters of the UK and Ireland. With a CE category B rating (for offshore use) you can be sure that it’ll keep you and your family safe.

The boat is in excellent condition and with only 483hrs on the clock, the big Yanmar diesel has tons of life left in it. A written description just won’t do it justice, so I made a full 40 minute long video tour to show you everything you need to know. To watch the video please sign up for Free VIP Access.
