This Merry Fisher 585 is a fast and reliable way to sample the joys of offshore boating or to get out to the fishing marks. The boat was built in 2007, and the engine was fitted new in 2011. The boat is in good condition, having been always kept ashore on a trailer or since 2016 in a Dry Stack. She has never been anti-fouled and has the original gel coat. Condition is clean and trim inside and out, with the standard seating, sink and hob fittings. Electronics are Navman VHF and plotter/fishfinder, with magnetic navigation compass, all working well. A very useful 12v. socket is fitted to the dashboard. She has the original anchor with lots of chain plus some 40 meters of warp, a full set of fenders and mooring lines, four rod-holders, swimming steps, and large reliable battery. The self-draining cockpit gives an excellent safe space for either fishing or family days out with rear seating and Bimini cover if required. The enclosed wheelhouse and full rear canopy give excellent protection from any adverse weather, and help to extend the season into chillier days. Weekends away are easy and comfortable with the double V-berth front cabin, and the boat's sea-keeping and handling are outstanding. The 70 hp. Suzuki four-stroke engine gives a cruising speed of some 20 knots, or 27 WOT, with great economy. The fuel tank takes 100 litres. This engine has had a full Suzuki Agent service every year I have owned it, and is now on 200 hours.
Other equipment includes a full rear canopy, boat hook, drogue, and the usual detachable cockpit table. There are overhead hatches in the cabin and wheelhouse, along with sliding doors to the cockpit. Manual and electric bilge pumps work well and the bilge takes no water. The cockpit has rear seating with detachable cushions. The cabin and wheelhouse have blue vinyl cushions/mattresses all in very good order.
The boat does not have a trailer.
Since some of these pictures were taken the boat has had a blue boot stripe and name applied to the hull. The boat can be viewed in Southampton by appointment, subject to the current social distancing restrictions....Read full description
