Bandido by Scott Ure

Bandido On the first weekend of September 2011 Soul Rebel finally had the engine and stern drive fitted before being moved to the Marina for launching. On 11th September 2011, almost exactly 8 years to the day since receiving the build plans, the completed boat was finally named Soul Rebel with a bottle of champagne by my daughter Sarah and launched shortly afterwards. All went well and after some testing we finally took Soul Rebel out on sea trials on the river Clyde on the West Coast of Scotland. 

Wow, what a boat, it performs far in excess of our wildest expectations and has received many great comments already. After all this time building the boat it has been well worth the effort and we are looking forward to many happy years sailing her.

As you can see the upper part of the boat has been changed a little from the build plans to give more below deck space which has proved a real bonus.

Hope everyone enjoys the photographs in my photo gallery.
