Hot on the heels of the sale of TV presenter, author and adventurer Monty Halls’ iconic Land Rover Marine Defender, now those with an eye for a great bit of diving kit can get their hands on his 7.5-metre Humber Ocean Pro rigid inflatable boat Odyssey.
Like the Marine Defender, Odyssey was designed to a very high specification especially for Monty, and together the two formed the centrepiece of his stand at the annual Birmingham Dive Show for many years.
Odyssey was shipped out to South Africa to take part in the Shoals of Agulhas expedition, and even bears the scars of a brush with a great white shark in the form of a repair to the port-side tube!
Other than this talking point, the boat is in great condition, and fully loaded. It is powered by a Suzuki DF200AP four-stroke engine with approximately 200 hours use, has a precision drive-by-wire throttle control, two Suzuki digital multifunction gauges, Raymarine HybridTouch 12-inch GPS, Raymarine VHF and Raymarine radar, as well as two Scot suspension jockey seats, two single jockey seats, bottle racks, a Sampson post and a large stainless steel black powder-coated A-frame/radar arch. It comes mounted on an Indespension twin-axle super-roller-coaster trailer.
It is being offered for sale by The Wolf Rock Boat Company and part exchange will be considered, apparently. For more details, contact 01548 855751 or check out the eBay listing here.
