    Arvor 905 Sportsfish Review

    Dom Wiseman 4th/May 2017 no responses
    If you're looking for a boat that you can keep on the water, but isn't as large or as much hassle as a game boat yet can do just as much? The Arvor 905 Sportsfish could be the boat for you. We've tested the 675 Sportsfish previously and the 905 features the same design element ..... Read more

    Quintrex 630 Freestyler Review

It has traditionally been a difficult thing to do, but advances in technology h ..... Read more

    Evinrude Gen 2 E-Tec 150-200hp Review

    Stabicraft 1600 Fisher Carbon Series Review

    Dom Wiseman 13th/Mar 2017 one response
    My first introduction to Stabicraft boats was back in the early 2000s at the Port Stephens Trailerboat fishing competition in Nelson Bay, NSW. Conditions were atrocious and quite honestly, I’m not sure I would have wanted to go out in most other boats. The 5.5m Stabicraft we ha ..... Read more

    Dom Wiseman 27th/Feb 2017 no responses
    In the mid sized plate aluminium fishing boat market the Bar Crusher name is one that sits right near the top with a proven pedigree in the offshore fishing market.

    Yamaha F25 Four-stroke Outboard Review

    Dom Wiseman 23rd/Feb 2017 no responses
    Outboard engines come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and Yamaha has a comprehensive line-up of four-stroke power from 2.5hp, all the way up to the enormously powerful 350hp.

    The Merry Fisher has been a standout model range for Jeanneau in Australia and elsewhere in the world due in no small part to its versatile nature.

    Boats come in all shapes and sizes with all manner of uses in mind. If you're a keen angler and looking for a versatile yet small platform to fish from, that is capable of inshore and offshore applications, then small aluminium boats and personal water craft used to be your only ..... Read more
