Bontwico Pocket Rocket Boat pre 1995



Bontwico Pocket Rocket Boat built pre 1995

The vendor has kindly supplied the following:

  • Made in the late 1980s / early 1990s and is one of four (white, red, yellow, blue) made by the company Bonwitco
  • I visited the factory before the business moved to Holland and I spoke to the man who built these. He told me it was the first one made (the white one) so it was the showroom model
  • It is in very original condition with the original seat cushions. It is fitted with a period 9hp Volvo Penta engine. The builder advised it should not have an engine bigger than 10hp. It comes with a spare 5hp Volvo Penta engine for river or canal use
  • The main engine on the boat is an electric start which is not that common for an engine of that size, it just makes the boat like a sports car - turn the key and off you go! It also has the conventional pull start option
  • The boat is on a combination trailer with anchor fenders and trailer board. It is 11ft long and light enough to tow behind virtually any car
