1989 Four Winns 241 Liberator

Burnham-on-Crouch, United Kingdom


The Four Winns Liberator range is becoming highly sought after thanks to their stunning looks, exhilarating performance and great handling, often compared favourably to the Sea Ray Pachanga, Sunseeker Mexico, and Wellcraft rivals. 'Black Magic' is a desirable 241 (the largest model still trailerable in the UK) and has been in the same family ownership for over 30yrs. In the last 5yrs a professional restoration has been carried out, whilst retaining as much originality as possible, and she is presented in very good condition for her age, complete with a reconditioned road trailer. Classic powerboats of this calibre and condition are few and far between in the UK, and she represents excellent value for someone essentially looking for a Mustang or Corvette on water, this is a true 1980s muscle boat!

Four Winns 241 Liberator built by Four Winns in 1989 to their own design. High-performance GRP planing hull with moulded spray chines, superstructure, and foredeck. 

Due to being stored undercover for the majority of her life the gelcoat condition is unusually good, and only required a polish and restriping, so is as yet unpainted and original. Unfortunately, as is common at this age, the transom reinforcement required renewing, this was carried out internally to a very high standard professionally together with improving the aft engine beds.
