2006 Four Winns V278

RSYC, Singapore


This three owner Four Winns V278 is a great example of how much space can be made availiable on 28 foot cabin cruiser.  This tidy boat has been well maintained and the engine room is clean and tidy. She has been stored in a dry stack by the current owner since early 2013.

The Volvo 5.7GXi 320hp Engine was installed new in 2012 and had new manifolds installed along with freshwater cooling system and flushing kit about 2 years ago.  The stern drive was also replaced a couple of years ago.  New 2019 batteries and other recent servicing and upgrades recently completed.  GPS screen is cracked so GPS does not work, but all other systems on board are working.  Listing photos are from November 2019 apart from running photos supplied by owner.

August 2020 - Approx SGD $2.3k spent on engine service with new ignition coil, ignition cables, distributor cap, plugs, engine oil, coolant and greased prop shaft etc.  Engine is running like new.

October 2020 update - Asking price has just been lowered to SGD $70,000 (approx USD $51,800 as advertised)

There is also a folding tender with 2hp outboard available as separate purchase for SGD $5,000.
