Boat Sales (Outboards)

caveat emptor!

This service offers members the chance to advertise their boats and other goods. The SOA does not have any knowledge of the condition of the items advertised and cannot accept any liability for the outcome of any transaction which might occur because of the use of this part of the website. To place an advert go to the "How to sell" page.  Should you not want to deal with the boat sale personally, Cornish Crabbers offer a professional refurbishment and brokerage service for used boats. 

This is for all Shrimper models, 17, 19 and 21.

Please also note that the prices quoted are in many cases negotiable so I do not add the "ono" tag!
