The best way to describe this rare model shetland is to say it is a cross between a 535 and a Sheltie. The cabin is bigger than a Sheltie but the cockpit is slightly smaller. Two live bait tanks.


The cuddy cabin is empty at the moment, but in the right hands it could be fitted out. The side benches are full length.

Broker's Comments

Its not often that a second hand boat becomes available which is completely ready to use and that not one penny needs to be spent on. To be available to buy at this time of year ready for the Summer is also rare, this Suntrip 535 is just about the best example of a Shetland I have seen for years. Set up mainly for fishing, She could easily be fitted out in the forward cabin to make her also suitable for overnighting or comfortable day cruising. In summary, she is a mint condition boat with a newish engine, a new road trailer, full set of electronics and a spare engine. She has two custom built and well engineered live bait tanks in the cockpit.
