This boat has gelcoat colour discrepancies as shown in the photos, and this is why we are clearing this one boat at such a knocked down price.
Spectrum 480 Pilothouse – designed for both boat anglers and people who like active recreation on the water. The Pilothouse has an addition of a high of 1.25 m extended wheelhouse, providing comfort and protection for captain and crew during bad weather. The Spectrum 480 Pilothouse compares very favourably with the likes of the Quicksilver 500 and Quicksilver Flamingo, but offering far better value for money!

Like the Spectrum 480 Cabin, the cockpit features easy-to-clean self draining gel coat non slip flooring. For the serious fisherman out there, there is a bench for additional seating on the starboard side, which can be removed for an even bigger cockpit.

Pilothouse Features


The Pilothouse out on the water showing excellent sea keeping qualities.

With its deep “V” from the bow, shallowing to a stable stern.  These boats have proved to be uncompromised in the U.K coastal waters.


The 480 Pilothouse shown performing with a Suzuki DF 50 hp with speeds up to 22 Knotts, this makes the Spectrum an excellent choice for those boaters who are looking for excellent economy.

Whilst performing at speed the Spectrum still remains stable and has the feel of a larger boat.

Protection from the elements

The Spectrum’s Pilothouse and cockpit design keeps you warm and dry in all weathers.

The cockpit features a footwell bilge pump, stainless steel foot support, under seat storage, bifold cabin door with spring activated hatch and a molded instrument display.
