SENSIBLE OFFERS INVITED - Very motivated seller Ring Extreme 26 'BLACK CAT' powered by a beautiful Mercruiser 496HO V8, 8.1L 425hp. New genuine Mercruiser manifolds fitted 2019. Black Cat is a slim looking sports boat finished in Daytona yellow with blue and black interior. She is a Mike Ring design known as the Ring Extreme. This particular well known hull, had been in storage for many years when it resurfaced in 2007 in Falmouth, so the hull was purchased, the boat was re-furbished by Fiberline in 2007, followed by a total interior fit-out by Mastertrim in 2008. The owner at the time started to rebuild the yellow hull. We know the engine bulkhead was originally re located by Tony Hamilton to allow for the large Lamborghini engine. During her rebuild in 2007 a new bulkhead was put back into the original position hence she has 2 bulk heads today. She was re sprayed again back to her original yellow colour. A new £9,000 interior fit out was installed to look as she does today in master trim 2 tone blue. The cuddy with LED lighting and new grey carpets the cock pit was completely replaced in blue and black DONZI offshore style seating with grey carpets and red night running lights. At this time, the sprint boat / Lamborghini Extreme, was renamed the Black cat as she is known today. The owner then fitted a brand new Mercruiser 350 Mag engine in 2008 at a cost of £9,500. At the same time, a bravo 1 outdrive and all new controls were fitted. A new stainless-steel fuel tank and reserve PVC back up tank and transom mounted exhausts were also fitted. She was also made all new covers; Black cats rebuild was completed in 2009.She received little use after completion with 37 hours on the engine her rebuild cost was estimated to be £37,000 pounds. The current owner decided to invest further in his beloved boat when he purchased, and had fitted, a 100 hr Mag 496 High Output. The engines history was verified by the installing mechanic from Poole, Ollie Johnson.
