NT News - Motoring - - MARINE GUIDE -

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.

It was com­pre­hen­sively re­vised in 2008, af­ter the orig­i­nal edi­tion sold out, and is split into two re­verse seg­ments with sep­a­rate, quick ref­er­ence map and lo­ca­tion leg­ends.

The coastal sec­tion has more than 80 maps ex­tend­ing from the Vic­to­rian bor­der through to Fowlers Bay, in­clud­ing Kan­ga­roo and off­shore is­lands. Maps show boat ramps, ac­cess roads, an­chor­ages, ship wrecks, dive sites, re­stricted speed zones, aquatic re­serves and sanc­tu­ar­ies.

The at­las was pro­duced by the Boat­ing In­dus­try As­so­ci­a­tion of South Aus­tralia (BIASA) with the as­sis­tance of fed­eral and state min­istries, their agen­cies and SA coun­cils.
