Hope everyone had a great Easter break and enjoyed the fantastic weather.
We were very fortunate to take delivery of our new Southern Pacific inflatable on Thursday and get the chance to give it a good run over the Easter break. We have purchased a Comrant 550 which we intend to use primarily for family water sports and the odd bit of bad fishing. We have put a 90hp Suzuki on it.
With the age of the kids it is nice to have a boat which is easily managed with two people, and good enough to tow biscuits, wakeboards, waterskis etc to keep everyone entertained. With the Suzuki engine and two adults we topped out at just over 40 knots which is plenty quick enough!! The engine was incredibly quiet and very eficent with the four days of boating we had. The boat was also very smooth riding in the small chop we encountered.
The plan is to have the boat at the Boat Show in May, and there are several nice features which makes the boat very practical for family boating. Hope you have time to come and check it out.
A big thanks to Blair, Luke and the Team at SPI for getting the boat finished in time for Easter.
