This is one of the last Arrowbolt 22s available, built in the late 80s it combines the space of an excellent family boat with the structure and performance of of a high quality power boat hull. The arrowbolt 22 is very hard to find and the interior is finished to a very high spec.
Overall everything is in a good used condition and everything works as it should. The Boat has mainly been used it in fresh water plodding along on the local river then Winterised and stored internally over the winters.
The Deep V hull is in very good condition apart from some minor scratches on the side and marks where the guide poles have rubbed. The top sides are fine but ideally would benefit from a respray at some point due to a bit of discolouration and residue left from the boat name stickers peeling off. This does not really detract from the appearance unless very close up and please bear in mind this is 33 years old and therefore not a new boat.

Drives through Borg Warner Velvet Drive gearbox – seamless gear engagement no clunking in and out of gear.
Mercruiser TRS heavy duty outdrive with power trim and tilt. Bulletproof outdrive designed for high output engines. Outdrive fitted with 19″ Stainless Cleaver Prop.
Very good starter and runs lovely at correct temperature and oil pressure.
Fitted with cooling system which incorporates integral flush system so after salt water use simply connect a hosepipe, turn two valves and start the engine to run fresh water through the system.
Only used four times on salt water (within last 12 months) since complete refurbishment a few years ago which included replacement engine and drive – originally supplied to Cigarette Offshore Racing Team (verified by Mercruiser in USA), new upholstery, custom bimini hood with custom frame, expensive German trim tabs, engine blower, air horn, lights, custom boat cover, Garmin Fishfinder 160, aux engine bracket etc. It’s a great day boat with a big vee birth (7ft birth) and a gas cooker and sink.
