Description: Bernard Wilson 57 "Wilsons Voyager" - REDUCED
NOW REDUCED! "Wilsons Voyager" is a rare and special bluewater vessel beautifully built of the finest Tasmanian timbers to a design reminiscent of the classic cray boats by the highly respected master shipwright, Bernard Wilson (his second last build before retirement). In AMSA 3C survey, this fine vessel is ready for work or, if you prefer, just go cruising. The current owner has overhauled/refitted "Wilson's Voyager" to the highest standards without regard to cost including... *accommodation update, *engine (Scania) overhaul, *electrics and electronics upgrade and sailing rig completely refurbished.
This long-range sea-going vessel is ready to cruise the world or if you prefer explore the Tassie coast safely and in absolute comfort. If ever such a vessel could be considered a collectable, "Wilsons Voyager" is just such a vessel. She is one of a kind, never to be repeated.
