Wilson Motor Sailer Traditional Classic
AU $115,000  New Listing
This fine traditional classic motor yacht has been subject to a very expensive and thorough restoration and although the restoration is incomplete, there is not much left to finish.
Built in Tasmania by well known master shipwright Barry Wilson, this craft was designed for long range cruising.
The fore and aft cabins can easily accommodate 7 persons overnight and the all electric galley includes two refrigerators, stove, microwave and even a desalinator. A new Yanmar diesel and Panda gen set have also been installed.
Electronics include a GPS, echo sounder, auto pilot, radar and a VHF radio.
The rig is ketch, with alloy spars and stainless steel standing rigging. The vessel is currently stored inside a secure boatshed where the work to date has been carried out.
