Quayline 18, 2-3 birth day boat with a 3.7L petrol Mercruiser inboard engine and Alpha 1 outdrive; comes on a twin axle trailer.  
The boat has an 18ft GRP construction hull and comes with depth sounder, VHF radio, Compass & two lifejackets. It has had a Lifeline Fire Suppression ‘AFFF Solution’ system installed that has a manual pull from the Cox position as well as manual from bottle directly into engine bay. This is to comply with the insurance requirements for all harbors in Scotland. When bought the original alternator had failed so a new alternator was purchased from the US and installed. The exhaust Non Return Valve and connecting rubbers have been replaced, the outdrive has a new water impellor and the cylinder head gasket was replaced last year.The engine and trailer need a fresh service and the carb could do with a tune, hence the auction sale.
