The engine has seen better days. Although it did run prior to partial removal it was the owners intention to replace it with a more modern one during the refurbishment - not a bad idea.

Broker's Comments

Well, there's no denying it's a project and probably not for the faint hearted. The owner has stripped her ready for rebuild but has neither the time nor determination to now complete the job. Pioneer 9's are good boats and for someone who wants a challenge and a cheap boat this could be just the ticket. Lots of parts stored in a lock up including newish rig, the sum of which alone are worth far more than the total asking price and you get a boat thrown in.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
