We are so excited to have for sale this spectacular 182 Amphibian and to have her in our showroom. An amazing opportunity to own this float plane with so much fun to be had, she is fitted with EASA approved Aerocet 3400 fibreglass amphibious floats, EASA approved vortex generators on the wings, elevators, and fins. She also benefits from having a landing gear position audio warning system, Water rudder position indicator, heavy-duty engine mount, and was also treated with anti-corrosion from the factory. Inside she maintains a well-looked-after cockpit with the addition of the Garmin GNC 225 nav/com and Garmin GTX320 transponder. Recently the front seats have been re-upholstered in grey leather, the interior is grey and there is a rear bench seat. G-ESSL has a seaplane four-point harnesses, underwater escape lighting, four point intercom, Rosen sun visors, and a Cambrai cover. As you can see she has been maintained meticulously irrespective of costs by a loving owner.

Another big advantage of this aircraft is the full kit of accessories that is necessary to operate an amphibian, saving you the cost of having to obtain these separately. This makes this aircraft a ready-to-go machine for any operation you require. There is a ventral camera which you can see in the images above which is also included with a controller which is operated from the cockpit. The owner is also offering some spares such as a spare main wheel and nose wheel which can be sent out, so this is very good value to the buyer. 

Whether G-ESSL will be an addition to your current fleet, add commercial benefits, or your first floatplane ready for you to take new adventures over water she ticks all the boxes. So if you are looking for an amphibian which has been well looked after, comes with all the right equipment and more, then she is waiting in our showroom for you.
