Wilderness Boats offer a specialised boat brokerage service solely on boats of our own design and build.
We are pleased to be able to offer this well maintained, two-owner 5.4m (17ft 6”) Beaver-Cub (one of only 7 built by us in the 1990’s ) and comes as a complete trailboat rig with a twin-axle trailer.
1979 - 2 berth
"DESIDERATA" - SOLD
This totally refitted early Water-Rat is one of the most remarkable Wilderness trailboats that we have ever been asked to put up for sale. Desiderata was refitted in the mid 90’s by a master carpenter & joiner and subsequently, the quality interior is very high.
This well-appointed craft was purchased by its original owners as a shell and fitted out by a firm of professional coachbuilders in Somerset to a high specification. Using UK hardwoods and excellent joinery skills the interior feel resembles that of a Pullman railway carriage.
This two-owner craft was refitted for its present owner to a 3 berth layout enabling the addition of an enlarged toilet/shower cubical in the rear cabin, provision of gas-fired blown-air central heating and a separate gas-fired water storage heater for supply to sink and shower.
As a bespoke order at the time and with the increased standards of trim, insulation and equipment of our Super-deluxe specification, it also benefits from additional internal headroom (6’3”). The current owners have also progressively made improvements to equipment over the years.
