Before we list this elsewhere we thought we would see if any other Trident Owners would like this engine. We are looking for £320 to cover what we have spent on it.

We knew this was a non runner when we bought the boat but were trying to see if we could resurrect it!
First we bought a new lift pump, complete new gasket set and new filters, in anticipation.
Then, having worked through the engine, we found that the Cylinder head is faulty. We have now bitten the bullet and have treated ourselves to a shiny new engine.
Therefore, there is this Yanmar 1GM 6.5 h.p. engine and gearbox, complete with loom, panel, key, feet, cables, new lift pump, complete set of new gaskets (unopened), ditto new filters, etc. Plus two other lift pumps for spares/repair looking for a new home. (Please note that the cylinder head is defective.)
We just want to cover our outgoings so if this engine could help somebody out please contact us (we want it to go in one lot rather than break for odds and ends – (if you want to sell bits on that is up to you, but we don’t want to get involved! Too much else going on!)  WE ARE, HOWEVER, ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT – but there is a ‘regular’ ferry service!


I’m looking for a cruising chute for my triple keeled Trident. Anything reasonable considered. Really needed for the 2022 round the island race.  Please let me know what you have.
