SPITFIRE by GILFLITE – (SOLD)

Fully restored (complete re-build by TJM Fibreglass)

SPITFIRE – a name often connected by many with either fighter aircraft or spirited women: so it is with this boat.

A fast sports craft with spirit, looks and performance. A great barefoot boat. (extract from original GILFITE advertising at time of release)

Put yourself in the drivers seat of this ‘as new’ GILFLITE Spitfire

Completely re-built in 2022 by TJM Fibreglass (one of the best in the business), this GILFLITE Spitfire is nothing short of immaculate! The boat is literally brand new from port to starboard and bow to transom. The engine has been re-built and the trailer is negotiable in the price, (still in the process of completion). To purchase this boat brand new, one would have to consider spending upwards of $70,000.00. However, this as new GILFLITE Spitfire is for sale at half the price.

This GILFLITE is a show piece, ready to provide any water sports family with impressive handling, great performance, good looks, durability and excellent skiing/barefooting and family fun for decades to come.

Please Note: To restore an iconic Spitfire ‘old school ski boat’ like this, and bring it back to it’s former glory will cost well above the asking price of this immaculately finished Spitfire.
