The PBO Project Boat Hantu Biru is up for grabs, and details of the competition to win her will be revealed at September’s Southampton Boat Show.

To find out more visit the Project Boat at berth M612 or the Time Inc marine media stand E1. Hantu Biru’s lucky winner will be announced shortly after the London Boat Show in January.

The Project Boat may have been bought for just £510 on eBay, but the restoration bill topped £6,250.

When you consider Snapdragon 23s in good condition go for £3,500-£4,000, it’s obvious the project wasn’t about making a quick buck: instead, Hantu Biru has generated many PBO step-by-step articles and inspired thousands of readers not to give up on their own project boats.

The competition will be open to global entries: however, delivery of the boat is restricted to UK mainland only. In the event of an overseas winner, they will be responsible for delivery to their home port.

The boat will undergo a full structural survey prior to handover, with any recommendations as a result of the survey completed.
