    Flatacraft - Force 3 GT
    For sale is my Flatacraft Force 3GT, these boats are rare in GT spec which added the front seats, steering console and covered bow. I have owned this boat for nearly 15 years, it is not a new boat and as such cosmetically it has its bumps and scrapes but mechanically it is sound running order. I am selling because I have moved onto other hobbies and am no longer using it. I would like it to go to someone who will get to enjoy it as much as I have. I have used it extensively on the River Thames but have also trailed it down to the Solent and Poole Harbour to run it on the sea. I have also used it as a safety boat at various events. The boat will plane at relatively low speed with only two people on board and with four given a little more throttle. It will comfortably carry six on flat water and is a brilliant boat for day trips and picnics or blatting around on the sea. The outboard is a 25hp Mariner, twin cylinder, two stroke petrol outboard with 25ltr fuel tank. These are bullet proof and this one has never let me down. It was winterised before it went into storage but is clean under the cowl and turns over freely on the hand crank. The outboard was serviced every two years when the boat was in use by Mike Cripps of Redline Outboards in Abingdon, who sadly retired and closed shop last Christmas (2014). I replaced the Teleflex steering and the Ultraflex throttle cables and control unit ten years ago with brand new, like for like components and all cables have been regularly greased and are in fine working order. I have also replaced the self bailer unit in the transom and sealed the new one into the hull with fibreglass. The trailer is basic but has a hand winch (with ratchet) and rollers to help launch and recovery; a CaraSafe hitch cover and padlock and mounting brackets for mudflaps but I have never used them. The wheel bearings have been re-greased every time the trailer has been in the water. The boat also comes with a tailor made transport/storage cover (not shown) that cost over £300 new. I have a load of spares, 2-3 litres of two stroke oil, spark plugs, extra steering wheel, additional rollers for the trailer which I bought but never got around to fitting, an extension lead for trail board and others items which will be included in the sale. Bad points As you will see from the photo's the front grab handle is missing but this is easily replaceable (ebay or any good chandlery) should you wish and has no impact upon use of the boat. The passenger seat could also do with bolting down tighter but is useable as it is. The trailer wheels and tyres are old and could probably do with replacing if you were planning on towing any distance but are perfectly functional. Purchaser will need to bring their own trailer/light board and number plate. Any questions please ask, viewing welcome by appointment.
