Buy a Wilderness Trailboat
If you want a new Beaver model or if you want a second-hand boat….start here….
Wilderness boats were built to a high standard, as can be seen by many which look as good as new even though some are getting on in years. Some are even nearing 40 years old and still going strong. The shells of the boats are very sound and where the fitting out is looking tired, make a good project for refitting and refurbishment. They resell well and hold their value if maintained, therefore depreciation is low, if non-existent! This is all testament to the original design and materials used by Ian Graham.
Around 400 boats were historically manufactured from the 1970’s to early in 2000’s by Ian Graham, Wilderness Boats at Corsham. They now operate a brokerage as well as the service of boat fitting out, refurbishing, repairing and servicing of boats, trailers and engines from Semington.
In 2007 an updated Beaver model was brought back into manufacture, in co-operation with Ian Graham, by Bob Howell of Wilderness Trailboats Ltd.. Since January 2015, Ian Graham, the original designer of the Beaver and who can be contacted in Wiltshire (as shown below at Wilderness Boats), has acquired the moulds and has produced the new Wilderness Beaver 23.
