Inflatable Dinghy/Tender for Sale

Avon 2.8 Rover Airdeck Inflatable Dinghy

I purchased this about 4 years ago and then found it was too big for my sailing boat. So it's been very little used. I think about 4 times with a 2 HP engine.

So its in really good condition with the odd scrape. It includes the Avon Bow Bag, Oars, Pump and carry bag. The carry bag is a little faded & worn in places as it was keep on the deck of our boat with the dinghy inside. These Avon Rover air decks are by far the best of the Inflatables and this one is the best dinghy I have owned, very stable and dry when under motor.

I would prefer pick up only but could deliver at cost.

£850 or very near offer.
