Two new models evolve
TWOnew models have been added to the Strikezone game fishing range produced by Evolution Boats — the Strikezone 600 and the Strikezone 650.
The 600 model was designed specifically for Australian fishing identity Al McGlashan, while the bigger Strikezone 650 is made to individual order with walk-around decks and either a bimini or a hardtop.
Standard features for the new offshore rigs include large sweeping cockpits and underfloor kill tanks.
Both new models and the existing Strikezone 500 and 550 vessels are all powered by Honda outboards.
Evolution Boats are distributed in eastern states and Tasmania by MY Marine, Dromana, Victoria. THE definition of exactly what are the big motor and sailing yachts has been spelt out in Asia.
A super-yacht has an overall length of 24m or greater. A mega-yacht has an overall length of 36m or greater.
The estimated value of the world’s fleet of super and mega-yachts is about $85 billion. THE South Australia’s Waters, an Atlas and Guide is a great gift for travelling powerboat, houseboat, cruising yacht, kayak, canoe and caravaning cartop dinghy enthusiasts.
Produced on waterresistant paper, this highquality publication is packed with 280 pages of full-colour information and is an essential library reference tool for exploring South Australia’s boating destinations.
