Shetland 535 Suntrip for sale No.2347 (1970’s)Owned for last 3 years, kept afloat each summer.
2 pedestal Captains seats, 3 folding Captains seats (new 2017) on rear bench. Cabin described as 2 berth but we store fishing gear and whatever we want in it instead.
She had a U shaped rear bench seat which we removed but we have kept the cushions (new 2014) in case someone wants to reinstate it. She has a pram cover (new 2014) which we removed on purchase as we didn’t want it but it is available to go back on. She has a cockpit cover.
Johnson 50hp 4 stroke 2005 (That’s a Suzuki underneath) has started for us first time every time since we have had her. Serviced annually. Boat has been antifouled annually with Hempel hard racing antifoul.
Her trailer is well maintained braked and road legal. Has had a 1500kg axle (new November2017) fitted complete with bearings and brakes, as she weighs in at 1280kgs on the trailer, and the axle when we bought her was only rated at 1300kgs.
We have overhauled her gradually over the last 3 years, starting at the bottom, seemed right to make sure she floated! To get her to fully tidy she needs decorating in the forward cabin and a new coat of paint on the top deck but we started at the bottom up and have not got that far yet!
She is a great little boat and we have made many fond memories with her. She is just not powerful enough for the rough seas off Padstow.
