These are only on the walk-around cab. The electric walkways are folded down whilst on the trailer. Once the boat is launched it is a matter of pressing two buttons and they will extend up level with the deck, giving you a full beam of 3.2m. They act as good bumpers around pontoons and jetties. Hand rails are optional extras (good if you have kids).
Fold Down Rear Steps
This was the first thing we designed when we started out. You have to have good access whether you’re on land or water. The submersible access step module serves as a swim platform in dams and waterways. They are moulded into the rear of the hull without spoiling the design. When folded down they have hand rails for easy access.
The Transom is designed to look good, but when anchored in rivers with strong currents sometimes you want anchor bow and stern. So this hull design will stop the boat dragging down and puts less stress on anchor.
Hulls are constructed from marine grade alloy panels which are 50mm thick and incorporate air chambers that provide built in buoyancy. The wall thickness of the panel is 2mm-3mm with internal ribs of 2-6mm spaced 75mm apart. They are extremely strong. The buoyancy tanks, 4 in total, 2 sides, floor and transom. Drilling holes or screws internally is not recommended. We pressure test all hulls for leaks in shop before delivery. If you are worried about internal corrosion in hull, we simply put soluble oil into chambers. If you happen to put a hole through the hull externally, only that chamber will fill up. Under the hull we fit 2 keels for strength and durability and a large 3mm bash plate in front of the keels for those rocky and concrete boat ramps.
Live bait tank and fillet board come standard, and doubles up as a good rubbish bin when not in use. On one side of it is an auxiliary bracket and on the other is a built in seat which can serve as a stand for a 2kva generator. The rear compartment seat which houses the hot water system also contains the deck wash hose. The deck wash can be switched to either tank or river water at the flick of a tap.
The cab is constructed from fully insulated 50mm thick paneling which is sheeted with aluminium on both sides providing low weight and high strength. This was confirmed when a demo unit was fully exposed to Category 5 Cyclone Larry in 2006 and survived without a scratch. Windows are double glazed polly carbon with blinds and screens built in. Doors are custom made with tinted safety glass. The roof is strong enough to store a 10’ tinny or a as a sundeck for a couple of adults or just a viewing platform. Grab rails on the roof come standard on walk-around cabs only.
All internal framing is alloy, welded to the hull, then sheeted with 4mm laminex. This makes the kitchen, lounge/beds etc very sturdy and easy to clean. The interior floor can be easily cleaned by removing the carpet, floor and transom bungs, and simply hosing out. The water will flow through and out of the hull.
The kitchen has a combination sink with hot and cold flick mixer and three burner gas stove with glass lid. The Dometic 150 litre 3 way fridge/freezer sits up on the bench for easy access and ventilation. All exposed timber edges are made from New Guinea Rosewood and coated with two-pak lacquer. The dining table can be moved to the front deck for those romantic sunsets.
The shower cubicle comes standard with a vacu-flush toilet that has a removable cassette in the rear hatch, a corner hand basin with a pull-out hot and cold trigger shower with flick mixer, a recessed toilet paper holder, either a roof vent or a window and a water proof halogen light.
Heavy duty drive on trailer. 4 tonne rocker leaf suspension with parallel bearings and galvanized rims. 1 spare wheel attached to front ‘A’ frame. Standard with electric brakes and a flush-out kit. The unique self centering drive on design, with a bit of practice, makes loading the boat a 1 person operation. All LED clearance and tail light.
