Broker's Comments

The Wilson Flyer is a cathedral hull dory, and is just about the most stable fishing platform out there. So stable, that you can walk around on the spacious deck, and the boat hardly moves at all.

In quite rough seas, there is no lateral rolling whatsoever. Another benefit of this hull design is the fantastic performance to horsepower ratio. The Flyer will plane at just over 10 knots, loaded with passengers and gear. For this reason the 50hp Four Stroke Honda is a good match giving plenty of performance.

For a small, trailable fishing boat that offers loads of deck space, stability and safety, the Wilson Flyer is hard to beat. A desirable package, keenly priced.
