Piranha lands in style
THE company Savage has a 114-year history of designing and building leisure craft.
Its brand is now recognised as Australia’s oldest in aluminium boats, its craft having undergone the transition from timber to fibreglass and then to aluminium.
They are now being manufactured at the Telwater Group factory in the Gold Coast Marine Centre at Coomera.
Among the modern Savage range is the 4.85m Piranha open fishing boat.
The Piranha has been cleverly designed to satisfy the most discerning fishing boat enthusiast.
Among the added safety and performance features is the reverse chine, which contributes to extra lift and stability of the Piranha hull.
The designers have also offered three options for helming, centre or side console and the tiller-steer model that opens up a more accepted fisher-friendly space in the cockpit.
There is no doubt that the Savage research and design team has taken some special notes about what its rivals offer in similar-size angling packages and it has produced what promises to become a market leader with the buyer who wants to own a no-nonsense angling platform. The strongly con- structed hull has a threeyear factory warranty and such is the attention to design that the Piranha ticks all the boxes when compared with rivals.
The stock standard version of the Piranha 4.85m Savage equipped with a 70-litre fuel tank and powered by a 60-horsepower pod-mounted engine has a fitout that is designed to allow the space to safely stow a cast net, crab pots, rods and tackle boxes.
A custom-designed 33-litre live bait well and the spacious side stowage pockets complete what is regarded as a truly professionally designed and built fishing dinghy.
Factory options of a tran- som step and grab rail and a Mark 5X Fish finder plus a sun-protecting bimini are also available to complete an impressive entry-level family fishing boat package.
