Bayliner 175 XT Bowrider with Sports Tower for sale
Bayliner 175 XT Bowrider with original factory fitted sports tower. The Bayliner 175's are the most popular boat in the world, and this boat has the very desirable 3.0 litre 130 HP Mercruiser inboard engine (which wanted for extra security in the boat park after few outboard thefts on the south coast) and the Alpha one gen stern drive. Being newer engine this gives surprisingly better economy over boats few years older and have not managed to empty the petrol tank in weekend, which you will do with the older 3.0l and the 5.7's!
The boat can take people and seats 8, but we have not taken more than on board, which left us with lots of power and planing at good speed. The boat handles beautifully and is stable, pulls away and perfect for watersports with the (factory fitted) tower. I had the engine pulled last year for check over and fixed an oil leak (replaced cover plate and gaskets), there are no issues with the boat that am aware of other than caution on manifold (easy DIY replacement). The engine has been properly winterised and the engine serviced with new oil and filter ready for this season, but hasn't been out of the garage...
The two part canvasman cover has been recently refurbished and looks great, lots of maintainence including steering cables lubricated (just finishing this), new killcord, new horn. The trailer has been refurbished, with new: brake hubs and brakes, brake cables, winch, hitch ram and energy store.
Also included in sale are pair of waterskis and watersports tow ropes, fenders, warps, navy blue covers (front and back) and white overcover, anchor and chain, bouyancy aid, safety helms kill cord and spare, petrol winterising fluid, can marine protection, spare trailer brackets, marine grease, bouyancy key fob and spare etc etc. Honesty marine engine blower now working (it wan't loose connection so replaced it) also new horn not working (loose connection somewhere) and speedo (probably pipe blocked again!) and it needs new stereo (new marine quality speakers fitted already)! I'm hoping to have these fixed shortly.
I have owned and used this for years and much loved, but the sailing boat is getting more use, and apparently two boats is too many (who knew!!?) and one has to go.
I have the boat out of storage and after clean (not even waxed as yet) it's shining and looks amazing! have reduced to £7,000 to sell, best on Ebay, so strictly no offers! Advertised elsewhere so reserve right to end listing. am minutes drive from J9 on M1 and just north of M25 for easy viewing.
