1.6 litre hydroplane
Ex Twincam, last raced as Mollydooker, Graham Howard built hydro.  16 ft, craftsman built turn key deal.  Victorian Champion only 2 seasons ago, twice Australian champion boat.

Immaculate condition.  MSD ignition, the best inlet manifolds proven flow, 45 mm Webers with carbon Ram inlets.  Gear box, prop, 2 batteries, spares include later cut exhaust and inlet manifolds, sumps,  you just jump in and race.  This boat would still be competitive with the million dollar carbon deals getting round, at a fraction of the price ready to race.

Great features of this style of Cell, you can take the lid off and enjoy open air racing.  Makes single crew launching easy.

Don't be fooled into buying a boat from overseas and finding issues with it that are expensive to correct.  There's no such thing as a cheap deal.  

You just can't build a boat for that

Trailer is tandem axle, full checker plated, hydraulic tilt, mag wheels and properly engineered.  You won't find better quality anywhere, just ask around

No tyre kickers, you either want the best or not.  $25000
