Sadly selling my One off Wilson Flyer. I have never seen one so good. The boat is in Dunoon and can be seen and tested both in and out of the water. It has a four wheel trailer with new bearings and brakes. New tyres are about to be fitted. It is towed with a Toyota 3 litre deisel surf good jeep long MOT. This could be available to purchase or the boat could possibly be delivered. Rare chance to own the legendary wilson flyer ready to go off the key. Any inspection welcome. You wont find another like it.

From what I was told on purchase this boat was built by wilson for harbour duty in Guernsey. Once they were finished with it it went through a couple of owners who basically neglected her by leaving her parked on the trailer for several years. It has under 600 hours from new. I have renovated it.

Boat travels at 12 knots without the turbo kicking in. This makes for very economical cruising. 6 hours of a mix of fast then cruising then trawling returned 4 gallons. Under 1 gal per hour average fuel consumption. I dont really run her flat out or fast that often, so cant comment on fast fuel consumption.

Boat is towed with my trusty not rusty Toyota 3ltr deisel surf. Long MOT very good condition 1996. This could be included at the right price. Alternatively I could possibly deliver it for cost if not overly far away. The jeep is not for sale seperately.
