Other information:

The Westport Pilot 4 is a proper little sea boat ideally suited to inshore fishing, although having said that I regularly go 8-10 miles off after Haddock.

There’s a saying, “The smaller the boat – the bigger the fun,” not forgetting the ease of handling and low running costs. That’s certainly true of the Westport Pilot 4. Take a look at the sea trial write ups.

“Little Auk” is a 2014 model and she is in immaculate condition. Pilot 4’s have a removable cuddy (4 clips) enabling you to convert to an open boat.

“Little Auk” has a number of features that make her more desirable and very usable.

  • Pedestal seats that swivel and adjust. She fishes 2 comfortably.
  • Smart SX Trim Tabs that enable the boat to get rapidly onto the plane and improve performance.
  • Automatic draining cockpit. If berthed on a pontoon as it means you can hose down the boat after fishing and you are not left with any water in the cockpit!

Equipment included in the sale • 40HP Yamaha F40FETL (New 2013) 64 hours • Yamaha Service Kit (Nov 22) • 1 x 105AH battery (New June 2021) with isolation switch. • Solar charger and charge controller. • USB charging point at Helm • Electric Bilge pump and float switch enclosed in a sump box, hard wired to the battery. • Lowrance Hook 5 Triple-shot – Fitted with a quick mount/dismount fitting so the display unit can be easily removed when the boat is unattended. • Cobra HH500 FLT handheld marine VHF with blue tooth (new 2021) - you can also use your phone through the radio. • 25L Yamaha fuel tank with gauge (& some fuel!) • Boat hook / Deck Brush • 5KG anchor / chain / rope. • Drogue anchor • 2 x Seago lifejackets (service required) • Boat cover ( has just been professionally cleaned and re-treated for waterproofing) • Pedestal seats and seat covers • Front & rear bench seat cushions • A removable windscreen for the helm station – used when the cuddy is removed. • Boarding ladder • Aux engine bracket • Fenders • Rod holders • Degraff unbraked Trailer – New April 2022 • Spare wheel for trailer • New spare Hub and Bearing. • 2 x Trailer locks (1 hitch / 1 wheel – 2 keys for each lock) • Tie down straps • Light board (13 pin) • Prop bag The Yamaha outboard runs beautifully, has 2 keys, is fitted with an immobiliser and has just 64 hours on the meter. The engine was serviced at the back end of 2021. There is a service kit included in the sale. The engine can either be serviced by me or you can use the service kit to do the service yourself. That way you know it’s all good!

The boats sits on a brand new (April 2022) DeGraff Trailer – Model SB 750/2 ADJ. This roller trailer with swinging cradle makes launching and, especially recovery, very very easy even on shallow slips. Being unbraked, it is simple and low cost to maintain. It’s also very light and super easy to move about on your driveway!

I would welcome enquires about the boat.

If the logistics of travelling to view are difficult, I’m sure I can handle a video call and do a virtual viewing.

Being in Scotland is not the easiest place from which to collect a boat. I would be happy to deliver, almost anywhere in the country, as part of an agreed deal. However, please note: In December I will be travelling south to Gloucestershire, and could easily bring the boat with me, thus making collection very easy for a prospective purchaser on the south coast.

This is a very comprehensive package of an extremely seaworthy boat in immaculate condition.

DO NOT SEND MONEY TO SELLERS YOU CANNOT VERIFY AS GENUINE.  If possible, travel to view the boat or equipment yourself and only buy once you are happy with it.
