Start Auto SlideShow Full Screen PopUp
This stunning M. V. Flinders 40ft Carvel Planked Cruiser was constructed in 1939 to demanding government specifications. She was built in Melbourne by Botterill and Fraser, fabricated from 1,5" Oregon. She served in New Guinea and later as a pilot vessel in Sydney Harbour, a true testament of her sea worthy and tough hull.
Civil life saw her beautifully restored with a art -deco pilot house and an attached cabin. This is a lovely vessel in extremely good order featuring new up-graded electronics and an economical GM (4-71) diesel engine.

A little bit of history:
She was commissioned by the Army as a coastal surveillance vessel in Darwin during the war years, before returning to Port Philip Bay as a Pilot vessel for many years, then used by the ports and Harbours as a work boat on the Gippsland Lakes.
She was finally sold by the government to a private owner who converted it to a cruiser with the additional cabin Installed by a shipwright.

o Original wheel house with clear views (many of these vessels had the original cab removed). Twin Focsle Berth with shower, toilet and vanity unit, in beautiful original condition.
o 4 x Burner Gas Stove.
o Built in Fridge.
o Hotwater Service.
o Upstairs Shower and toilet unit.
o Breakfast bar
o Rear lounge converts to a double bed.
o Rear open deck with Clear covers.
o Economical 471 GM diesel engine. (cruises at 7 to 8 knots @ approx. 8 lt/hr
o Recently had $10,000 spent on electrical system to update with full circuit breakers and new Gel house batteries with compatible new batteries for the engine cranking, 240volt shore power installed with charging and power monitoring system complete with RCD.
o Flinders has recently been slipped with new antifouling done and a full survey carried out for insurance purposes.
