Haines Hunter 850 Sportsbridge- One of only 9 built by the Haines Group.Project. for sale
Haines Hunter 850 SB Manta Ray " This is one of only Sportsbridge hulls built by the Haines Brothers, and although unconfirmed it was built for and then owned by Haines family member at one stage. This is quite rare project boat.Built to last and outlast all the production plastic churned out these days- and its Haines- no more needed to be said really. The owner is gradually retiring from his marine related business to concentrate on other industrial development needs. It has fantastic potential and whoever buys it will capture the rewards.The new owner will literally be paying little over the cost of the engines ,legs and winch.The hull and the rest of it will be literally free. The starting price is the reserve.Will sell to the high bidder.
Only my humble opinion but savvy investor might possibly remove and sell the engines/legs and pod it with twin strokes or alternatively undertake the cosmetic work required internally and leave the TAMD's as they areWhichever way it goes its all good in the end.Just depends on your personal choice of engine type you want to go with really Externally, the hull integrity is in excellent condition. The hull has had new initial coat of antifoul and has had cut and polish up to the gunnels. The topsides are faded and would definitely benefit from sand/prime and paint in the future. It requires new clears/canvas for large bimini and the side vinyl panel covers on the flybridge will need new ones cut and covered. The ply panel behind the external freezer/sink unit will need replacing due to age.
