The motor has been mechanically tested and it can’t be faulted, with a very sound report from the mechanics. The motor is further backed with a BIA engine warranty and our tick of approval removing the risks with buying privately.
The motor features steering friction control, gas assist trim and tilt along with a skipper friendly tiller handle when steering. The boat also features a second motor being the bow mounted electric Haswing Cayman Pro 55 12v with foot pedal (Please note no battery is supplied). Ideal for use in the shallows or freshwater impoundments when chasing easily spooked fish by coming in on this motor rather than combustion engine.
The cockpit is open and well laid out with a casting platform making the perfect vantage place to flick the soft plastics or throw the cast net. Under the bow casting platform there is a load of storage provided as pictured. The cockpit has side pockets fitted as a bonus and wide gunnels. Atop of this, a Humminbird 587ciHD colour screen combo sounder/GPS unit is fitted assisting in locating the fish. Yes even the two stubby coolers come with the rig ?
