You can get almost everything you need from the UK or America. You will need well stuffed pockets that are fairly deep. You will also need a manual

Parts aren't too expensive postage is unless you have a dealer in Sweden

If a boat is a hole in the water you have to fill with money, then a CS Lister is a lump of ferrous metal that'll not only cost you it's weight in gold, you'll buy the bits you can't repair with as much enthusiasm as you shell out for a new suite of berthing lines.

Ask me how I know...........

We keep good stocks for nearly ALL Lister engine models made in the past 50 years. SR models are commonplace and well supported.
