2011 WILSON 8M:

This Richard Wilson designed and Brin Wilson Boatbuilders built traditional style launch is a new concept in water craft. The flat sections aft give greater stability and the twin keels reduce sideways drift. The spacing of the twin keels allows the vessel to be self-supported and enables you to reach out of the way places and anchor as close to the shore as you like. The vessel's displacement has been kept as light as possible meaning the boat can be powered by as little as 70 horsepower thus greatly increasing the fuel efficiency without sacrificing speed. The beam is kept under the 2.5 meters legal towing width, allowing the boat to be easily towed behind a suitable vehicle. The double berth forward, separate toilet and galley mean that overnight excursions are comfortable.
