I,ve come to the tough decision that i have to sell one of my fishing boats as i barely use it any more and i need the space. The boat is a Shetland 535 Fast fisher 17ft glassfibre jobbie with a tuned 40hp yamaha outboard on the back. The boat itself is ready to go fishing with all steering and morse controls working fine. The gelcoat is a bit flat but sound, theres no holes or osmosis and just needs water.

 The outboard is a Yamaha 40hp and was rebuilt a few years ago and has only been used for a few hours and is in immaculate condition and runs fine. Its electric start and needs an external fuel tank. As the pictures will show its immaculate.

The trailer needs a little bit of work, new wheel bearings and possibly a little welding here and there.
All in all its ready to go and is ideal either for sea fishing or pike fishing.

I,m after £1200 which is a good price considering what i,ve seen them going for on ebay. The boat is stored near to Basildon in Essex and you can email me to arrange a viewing or ask any questions:  

Cheers BRYAN


  1. Have you sold this boat? How did it go? Did you have a hard time selling it? Anyway, with the good condition of the boat, I’m pretty sure lots of people were interested in buying it.

    1. Yes I sold her ages ago. She was a good boat, wish I kept her now as I,d like similar to put on the Broads.

  2. Seeing how good the boat was, it’s not surprising that a lot of anglers would be interested to have her. And judging from your past adventures with her, she's proven that she is quite sturdy and reliable. Were you able to get the asking price you wanted? Also, did you buy another boat later on, or planning to get one again? All the best!
