This Dell Quay Fisherman 17 is a fantastic estuary boat with plenty of room for all the family. The cathedral hull design offers stability both underway and when at anchor, with tall side-rails running along the gunnels to ensure safety onboard. The 80hp Yamaha outboard provides enough power to tow a donut with ease and the twin external-fuel tank configuration gives peace of mind for those longer sea passages. Twisted Marine have recently serviced this outboard and installed a new throttle control unit.
At the bow there is a large storage locker with plenty of room to stow the anchor, line and much more. The wooden bench seats are varnished to a good standard and the helm console as well equipped, with a Raymarine fish-finder / depth gauge, trim dial, RPM gauge and engine taco – All of which appear to be in good work order. The Yamaha outboard pumps water well and ran perfectly upon sea trial.
Below the gunnels (but above the waterline) the hull would benefit from some attention as there are a number of areas where the gelcoat has been scratched. This looks to be artificial damage rather than damage to the fibreglass itself, but would definitely be worth addressing in the winter months.
