Motor BoatsavailableRing34 Marathon Class
This stunning boat will take your breath away in terms of performance & style. Originally designed & built by Mike Ring as his own boat to compete in the 2012 Round Britain Race, but unfortunately, the race was cancelled. Its current Owner purchased it almost 2 years ago and has fitted it with 2 brand new, heavily modified & improved, Mercruiser 377 Mag 6.2L engines giving an estimated 500 horsepower each and a top speed of in excess of 75mph. With 5 comfortable & supported seats as well as a cabin that will sleep 4, this is one adrenaline rush of a boat that can double up as a sports boat for overnight stays onboard. Additionally, with her engine & other upgrades, it could easily be converted back to a race boat for events such as Cowes / Torquay etc. Being a Ring, her length, cockpit and engine set up are perfectly balanced to give excellent handling and solid stability without compromise to her race performance. This Ring 34 has a whole host of high spec extras including 2 x Raymarine Plotters that display all the engine instruments & even control the Fusion Stereo. This boat gives a fast, stable but very exhilarating ride.

Oh my goodness what a boat. As a standard Ring 34 this boat would be awesome, but with the new engines complete with all the expensive upgrade options and all the other kit fitted, this is an exhilarating speed machine that can’t fail to make its new owner smile and feel proud. With a few modifications, this boat could be specced to complete in offshore racing classes such as the Cowes/Torquay/Cowes but will be equally at home blasting across the Solent for lunch at The Hut with Friends onboard. Four of you could even stay overnight onboard. Built by Mike Ring himself to compete in the canceled Round Britain Race of 2012 you can be sure that this is one stable and well constructed craft that is more than fit for purpose. Ring Powercraft are truly one of the great UK Manufacturers with a heritage and pedigree that goes back for decades and this Ring 34 Marathon Class powerboat completely captures the essence of their style & performance. Combining stunning racing looks with strong yet lightweight construction, coupled with the incredibly fast & powerful engines makes this a very desirable boat. With a top speed of approx. 75 mph this boat offers a truly exhilarating ride but at the same time feels safe and stable for all onboard. The lumbar supported seats keep the driver and navigator comfortable and firmly in place whilst the 3 seats behind, mean your friends & family can also enjoy the ride. Whilst this boat is clearly designed for speed, its space, seating and cleaver design mean she can equally be used for recreation.
This particular boat has been very well maintained and has always been stored out of the water so she has an exceptionally clean hull and has never been anti-fouled. She even comes with a purpose built Hayling Trailers braked road trailer. If you are looking for exhilarating performance with stability and strong build, or are looking to get into offshore racing, then this is definitely the Boat for you. She is currently lying in Southampton and is available for viewings through Aspire Boat Sales.
