    Jeanneau Cap Camarat 10.5WA Review

    Dom Wiseman 16th/Aug 2017 no responses
    Open boats like the Jeanneau Cap Camarat range are uniquely suited to our exquisite weather in Australia. They offer plenty of open space that appeals to our out and about nature and they are fantastic lounging, cruising and fishing platform. In fact they are the SUV of the water ..... Read more

    Azimut 50 Flybridge Review

    Dom Wiseman 21st/Jul 2017 one response
    Azimut Yachts began in 1969 when a young university student founded Azimut Srl and began chartering sailing boats. That young student, Paolo Vitelli was then appointed in 1970 to distribute boats in Italy and Azimut quickly expanded their operations. Soon enough they began to des ..... Read more

    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

    Dom Wiseman 13th/Apr 2017 no responses
    Innovation in aluminium boat building is hardly new. In fact there are multiple companies using proprietary manufacturing processes to build aluminium craft that ride remarkably like fibreglass boats. It has traditionally been a difficult thing to do, but advances in technology h ..... Read more

    Evinrude Gen 2 E-Tec 150-200hp Review

    Steve Lague 14th/Mar 2017 no responses
    Just months after the Federal Government revealed details of its new, stricter, emission standards for marine engines, Evinrude held its Australian launch of its mid-powered outboard range. It also declared its 150-200hp range of Gen 2 motors not only met the new standards but ..... Read more

    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

    Yamaha has realigned its mid-range four-stroke outboard range with the introduction of the new F90 model, one of the most important engines in the Yamaha outboard line-up. The introduction of the new generation Yamaha F90 will see the existing 80 and 100 horsepower plants disc ..... Read more

    Bar Crusher 535C Cuddy Cab Review

    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. There wouldn't be many serious anglers who haven't at least considered the Bar Crusher brand and given the regulari ..... Read more

    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. While there is a wide range of units available, many of us cut our teeth at the lower end of the sp ..... Read more

    Jeanneau Merry Fisher 895 Review

    Dom Wiseman 6th/Feb 2017 no responses
    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. It is a capable day boat, fishing platform, entertainer and overnighter all in one. And it has to be one of the most stylish looking ..... Read more
