2003 VIRUSBOATS TURBOSKIFF fibreglass sliding rigger single SOLD by TENDER

  • 160cm span from pin to pin so gearing is perfect.
  • Complete with pair carbon/glass fibre oars (sculls).
  • Includes turbotrolley.
  • Tip top condition.
  • Lying in W. Sussex.

Sliding riggers were banned from competition in the early 1980s but this is a recreational boat and there are no regulations that bar their use. The advantage is that one's mass does not oscillate to & fro, as with a sliding seat, and so the overall speed changes less during each stroke with consequent reduction in drag.

The VirusBoats TurboSkiff was designed in by the late Noël Louvet as a lighter faster boat than the Yole.

Bear in mind also that the cheaper polyethylene Turbo II Wing, though tough and hard wearing, will never look as good. If you want a boat to pass onto your grandchildren then this is it.

This is a beautiful boat. Beautiful lines, both above and below the waterline.

It is the lightest and least stable of VirusBoats designs but still stable by racing boat standards and is fast for a recreational boat.

A good boat for the sea with plenty of volume in the bow for riding over waves etc. Check out other past examples below to get an idea of value.

A few of these have been sold by tender over recent years so check out the result below to get an idea of what to bid.


Remember that this is the lighter and more elegant fibreglass TurboSKIFF. It is NOT the cheaper and heavier rotamoulded Turbo II Wing. The last Turboskiff sold for £1,680 so bid accordingly.
 
This boat has been SOLD by TENDER for £1,365.
The tender closed at noon on Monday 7th November 2016.

The VirusBoats Yole was designed in 1993 by the late Noël Louvet and immediately became a classic, popular with families and professional people alike. This fibreglass model is much lighter (42kg) than the polyethylene Yole Club (60kg) but as can be seen it stays much cleaner and holds its value really well.

One of the damaged areas.

Coincidentally I just received an email from another very happy TurboSkiff owner:

"I bought a (bright red) Virus Turbo Skiff. For various reasons I've not used it much until recently, so I thought I'd say what fun it is, even though I'm stretching muscles that haven't been used in this way since I last rowed (properly) in the 1960s. Ouch! I'm 76 and I feel it at times.

I live on the shore of Chichester Harbour and sail or row from my house. For rowing I need high water to coincide with not too much wind, preferably early morning and me being free, which doesn't happen too often. It's all just right at the moment, hence plenty of use of the skiff. I've been out at 7 am. Very peaceful.."

This is a very robust boat. Virtually indestructable, although I did have a customer destroy one by driving over it with a truck, accidentally.

It has very similar characteristics on the water to those of the fibreglass boat above but it is heavier.

One of the damaged areas.

The VirusBoats Turboskiff is a revolutionary boat having a sliding rigger instead of a sliding seat, which makes it pitch less and is definitely faster.

It is hard to get your hands on a Yole Class because they are not as common as Yole Clubs, being a more expensive and exclusive boats. These are largely owned privately as opposed to by clubs and are lighter and thus highly sought after. As usual I expect this one to sell quickly, like they always do.

Check out other past examples below to get an idea of value. Remember this is a fibreglass double (not polyethylene) with oars as usual but also WITH a trolley AND road trailer AND launching trolley AND a cover. All the extras! If you really want it then bid high. Cheeky cheap bids NEVER win these tenders.

When asked how they were enjoying the boat shortly after they'd bought her, one daughter replied,

"We have had a great season, using the Yole on every available occasion.

My father, despite some illness just after getting the boat, has been out quite a few times this year either with my sister or myself. He has been taking it "canny" to start with but the last time we were out, a couple of weeks ago, he was really getting back into his stride and we managed to row up the river quite a bit and back! It's marvellous exercise for him and gets him back on the water at the same time.

Besides this my sister and myself have both enjoyed the boat, rowing together and myself single sculling. The simplicity of its use is one of the main features - no need to rig sails, etc. - just change and go and we've kept it near the front of the boatshed in order that we might use it throughout the winter. There are always some marvellous crisp, sunny, calm days at this time of year and I hope we'll be able to make use of them!!"

What would she have been worth to YOU? To win her you have to bid the highest. Too late now. Sorry, you've missed the boat. ;-D Never mind, you can still buy a new one.

  • She is lying in the The Netherlands and the vendor has provided lots of photos so you can see the condition. Although these photos were taken on Jan 1st 2003 the boat has been stored indoors and not used since they were taken so the condition is unchanged.

The tender closed at 12.00 noon on Wednesday 8th August 2012 and the boat was sold for £1,516.

Feedback from buyer:

Dear Val and Steve,
Just wanted to say happy new and year report back on how I found the Julien single scull/skiff that I picked up in September.
I am extremely happy with the boat and I?ve been out on her over a dozen times in 4 months, which is truly brilliant.
The scull is a great balance giving me reasonable speed & glide, with excellent manoeuvrability & stability. The River Stour where I?m rowing has lots of bends and very few straights and this boat is really good for this, plus having just been out in a narrower ?almost racing? boat (and fallen in) I really appreciate the forgiving stability of the Julien scull. Another huge benefit has been that when the conditions have not been perfect (e.g. the wind is strong) and the club session is cancelled I can still go out for a row.
Just wanted to report back that I?m very happy and am enjoying the boat having now used it for a few months and clocked up several milestones on the River.
All the best
Mark

  • This lovely 5 year old boat, which has been stored indoors and well maintained is for sale by tender.
  • Tip top condition. Owner says, "There is a slight indent on bottom of the hull either side of the keel towards the front where it has sat on the trailer. Apart from that there are one or two minor chips in the gel coat which can easily be repaired with gel coat filler." and we have no reason to doubt his word as we know him well. He is a rowing umpire.
  • Comes complete with two pairs of Aluminium Standard 265 oars so the hands do not overlap, making sculling easy to learn for any guest you may take on board.
  • Road trailer with lights and suspension included. Owner says, "The trailer board has been upgraded to British wiring from the original French." For your info: this was actually unnecessary as the French use the tow-ball itself as the earth return and so if you were to grease up the tow-ball the lights would not have worked and this is probably what happened with the original owner. The British fit a separate earth wire.
  • There has been a real shortage of second hand Yoles available for sale recently. Their owners love them. So I expect that there are many people who will tender for this pristine boat and it will fetch a very good price. If you had wished to buy this package NEW today it would have cost you £7,082!
  • She is lying in the Wales.

The tender closed at 12.00 noon on Wednesday 23th May 2012 and the boat has been sold for £4,560.

  • This 12 year old boat had NEVER been used owing to a problem with the legs of the owner who sees little prospect of any improvement in her health and has now decided the boat should have the opportunity to bring delight to a new owner who can make proper use of her.
  • Absolutely mint condition as you can see from the photos.
  • Comes complete with a pair of Carbon Composite sculls with macon blades and a Club Trolley, ALSO UNUSED.
  • This boat with trolley & sculls, NEW, today would cost £5,527 and they are highly sought after second hand. Just look at the values obtained below for other Yoles sold by tender. This low depreciation leading to high second-hand values means that the cost of ownership is low, provided you look after your boat, as this owner clearly has.
  • The boat has been stored in a barn and the wooden parts were revarnished 4 years ago.
  • There has been a real shortage of second hand Yoles available for sale recently. Their owners love them. So I expect that there are many people who will tender for this pristine boat and I know that there are prospective buyers in the Netherlands.
  • If you wish you can convert the boat to a double by purchasing a Kit1x/2x for £505 and another pair of sculls for £511.
  • She is lying in the Netherlands and the owner is prepared to bring as far as Dunkirk (Dunquerke) or even to Dover.

2011 WINTECH 1x CLUB RACER FOR SALE


I have just sold my one-year-old, Wintech, single, sculling boat in order to buy a better one. It is a 65kg - 75kg (crew weight) Club Racer and I have upgraded to a Wintech International single. This boat for sale has a durable hull made from Kevlar and Glass with Carbon reinforcement so will withstand shocks well and is therefore ideal for club use. I couldn't afford an International last year or I would have bought one then, as this is what I had before.

Racing rules state that the max weight for a lightweight man in the single is 72.5kg so this is an optimum boat for a LW man but obviously ideal for most women too, especially with the flaired cockpit containing no shoulders to catch on the hips because the boat is fitted with a quick-release, aluminium wing rigger mounted above the stretcher. The carbon seat also has oval depressions in it instead of round holes, thus comfortably accommodating sitting bones that are wider apart in some individuals and closer together in others.

The design is extremely effective at keeping water out of the cockpit. Nothing ever comes over the aluminium wing rigger or over the breakwater in my experience and I have tested it in some horrible conditions. The outstanding German designer, Klaus Filter, has incorporated many innovations in this design; little things like tiny drain holes in the slides so the wheels of the seat do not roll in water when it rains; they all make a difference.

The boat has 6 years of the 7 year warranty left to run and is in exceptionally good condition, as, for most of the last year, I have been sculling in a quad or rowing in an eight, hence the price of £1,995. There is no VAT on this, as this is my personal boat. DO NOT call me on 07985 043 981 if you are interested becase this boat is NOW SOLD at the asking price.

  • This polyethylene boat has been used for family fun for almost ten years and now she is ready for a new family to enjoy!
  • Although she has been stored outside much of the time the varnish on the wood is still in remarkably good nick. The owner says that she doesn't look quite as clean in the flesh as these photos (taken last weekend) imply but we think that for a boat of this age she looks fine. It is virtually imposible to keep a polyethylene boat pristine without wrapping it in cotton wool and not using it!
  • Includes two children's buoyancy aids.
  • Comes complete with 1 pair of Sport 280 oars and the boat has standard riggers.
  • Includes a Std.400 trolley that turns the boat into a wheelbarrow so it is easy to move around.
  • Red passenger seat.
  • You could buy this complete package NEW today for £3,000 so what will you bid for it? More to the point, what will others bid for it? It is a very popular boat type. We cannot get enough of these second hand to meet the demand. You can convert it to a double scull with a kit that we can supply, complete with another pair of sculls, for just £683 if you prefer a double to a single. It is the same hull either way.

  • To match these sculls the boat has factory fitted extended riggers.

Feedback


Hi Steve,

Just to let you know your delivery driver dropped off my Virus Yole boat last night.  I'm absolutely delighted with it.  It's in good condition and is just what I want for the kind of recreational rowing that I do.   Many thanks for your assistance in all of this.  I was a bit wary at first as I've previously had my fingers burnt in Internet transactions but I'm pleased to say you have been a great help and absolutely trustworthy.

Regards

Greg Shaw
