Siz­ing up Big Daddy


A BA­SIC, but big­ger all-round fish­ing boat has been re­leased by Sav­age in time for the round of ma­jor boat shows in the eastern states — start­ing with the Sanc­tu­ary Cove In­ter­na­tional boat show in Queens­land.

The new ad­di­tion to the Sav­age range for 2013, the 415 Big Daddy, has been de­signed as a ‘‘no-fuss tin­nie’’ and is a larger ver­sion of the ex­ist­ing Sav­age 385 Big Boy model.

De­sign­ers say the Big Daddy is an­other beamy with a beam of 1.96m and sta­ble fish­ing boat with more space and stor­age area.

It is eas­ily towed be­hind medium-size fam­ily car.

The 415 fea­tures a cast­ing plat­form with am­ple stor­age space, has a horse­power rat­ing of 40 and in­cor­po­rates high 3mm plate-look sides for strength and dura­bil­ity.

Sav­age national ac­count man­ager Ryan Dew­son said the new Big Daddy was a wel­come ad­di­tion to the Sav­age range and ser­viced a need and de­mand in the cur­rent mar­ket.

‘‘The 415 Big Daddy is the ul­ti­mate el­e­men­tary fish­ing boat of­fer­ing a great price point for fish­er­men in the mar­ket for some­thing new,’’ he said.

He said there were op­tions to suit vary­ing needs of fish­er­men, in­clud­ing rod hold­ers and ex­truded side decks.

The 415 Big Daddy is avail­able as a boat, mo­tor and trailer pack­age com­plete with a three-year limited fac­tory war­ranty.

Dew­son said the Big Daddy was ‘‘the per­fect no-fuss tin­nie for your next fish­ing trip’’.
