Indexna - Speedboat / Launch

This is a stunning example of what it is a truly classic speedboat. Built from hot-molded timber in Barcelona in the 1950's, this elegant craft was made and used for the umpires during the Olympics. Out of seven that were made, this is the last remaining. A true craft of marine heritage, the vessel was converted in the 1960's to accomodate the Mercury 'Tower of Power', their latest 100HP engine and was used for demonstrations in Cannes and Nice. Viewing is by appointment only. For more information, photographs and to arrange a viewing, please call +0044 (0) 1202 618000.


The Speedboat / Launch is the last remaining one of seven only made for the Olympic games as an umpires launch, unfortunately the other six have been written off by either crash or fire in subsequent years. The vessel was built in Barcelona, Spain and imported back to the UK after the Olympics.

The boat was converted in the 1960's to accommodate a 100HP Mercury 'Tower of Power' engine and was subsequently used to give demonstrations in Cannes and Nice in the South of France, together with other documentation and films confirming demonstrations of kite flying in the U.K.

The craft has been extensively and expensively converted back to it's very original specification and as such, it is as appearing in the attached photographs equipped with the 'sourced' Lark 40HP outboard engine.

There's plenty of paperwork and video evidence to support this usage. Offers close to the asking price will be considered.

10 gallon fuel tank.

Ropes and general securing tackle for boat.

Trailer and covers.

Portable pneumatic fendoffs for hull protection.

Overall cover in addition to tonneau cover.

Has been treated with 12 coats of yacht varnish by a specialist hand painter.
