Excel - Vanguard 430
For sale is my Excel Vanguard 430 inflatable, fitted with an Evinrude Etec DR30. She sits on an Extreme road trailer purpose made for inflatables. I am selling because a neck injury has forced me to re think my boating.
The whole rig was bought new by myself in September 2013 direct from Excel Boats. It is in fantastic, virtually as new condition. The balance of warranty (just over 3 yrs) exists on the boat and engine. I have the original bill of sale, commissioning documents and all manuals.
There is no hour meter but I would give an estimate of about 50 hours (at the most) on the engine. It has been very well looked after, with quality Quicksilver oil used and has been thoroughly flushed with fresh water after use. The whole rig in fact has been washed down with fresh water after every use.
She is incredibly safe and stable. My family and I have been out in some interesting chop and she behaves impeccably. The 50 cm tubes provide good buoyancy and a dry ride. The deep inflatable keel provides good control.
Fitted with the fantastic Evinrude engine she pops onto the plane easily even with a full complement of passengers. The engine is very economical and merely sips fuel. The Evinrude Etec engines only require servicing every 3 yrs or 300 hours.
The trailer is in fantastic condition, bearings are fine and it's good to go. Being an inflatable you obviously have the option to deflate the tubes, separate the aluminium floor and pack the whole thing up for transport.
She is very easy to launch and recover. I can easily push the whole rig around by hand.
Included in the sale is an Excel Bow / spray cover, a padded seat with under seat storage, all over cover, oars, pump and tube repair pack.
The whole package would cost in excess of £5500 if bought new.
