STABICRAFT Marine has released its all new innovative 1850 Supercab.
At the recent New Zealand Boat Show, the 1850 scooped the "All Purpose Under 6m" award.
"We think we've nailed it, it's a boat that can be towed easily and has everything a serious fisherman and his family wants all with the comfort of a Supercab and the quality and dependability of Stabicraft," says Tim van Duyl, Stabicraft Marine's Marketing Co-ordinator.
The makers say the Stabicraft 1850 Supercab is a smaller boat with big boat features; the cockpit feels a lot larger than you would expect from a 5.6m boat and it fishes accordingly. It is safe and stable at rest and yet rides softly, providing a great platform for a family day on the water.
The new 1850 Supercab carry's Stabicraft's Game Chaser Transom a profiled transom to deflect water and reduce drag at the stern, enhancing reversing speed and all-important manoeuvrability when trying to land that prized fish.
Reminiscent of the ever popular Superfish Transom the topside of the transom features a centrally mounted 66L live bait tank with glass screen and integrated filleting board lid and rod holders.
On either side of the bait station are fold up corner seats, these spaces have been purposefully designed to be comfortable fishing spots giving great casting access around the stern and sides of the boat as well as needed seating for the family or when needing a rest.
