what is the best locally built 6m fibreglass centre console boat?

Hi,

I've been searching the net extensively looking for WA boat manufacturer who builds 6m fibregalss centre consoles for a reasonable price. I found plenty over east but very little in WA. Anyone got any suggestions? Surely there are some? thanks

 Not many built locally here

 Not many built locally here at the moment. I know that a guy had the original penguin huntress moulds and had a cc top for them. They were priced pretty well. Was a bit on fb 6 months ago about him wanting a few confirmed orders or he was going to pack the moulds away. 

Thought I saw something the other day that suggested Denton Marine had a new model coming out too.

Just under 6m

 But at 5.65m the locally made Ocean Whaler is one hell of a good locally made centre console boat and so versatile can be taken out to sea and great for crabbing ect in the river defiantly well worth looking at

Is that why I had to get extra clears on mine?

 Its not as dry as one would hope. I put a clear above the screen and also out to the bulwarks either side so I could stay dry in most seas. The only other problem is now follow up from Nigel at Ocean Whaler. From what I have been reading over the past months on here he is a hard man to get hold of if you have problems. In saying that I have to admit that I had no dramas getting hold of him when I had problems.

Never used clears

Fri, 2015-05-08 19:32

 I've got clears made up for mine but I've never had to use them and I've been out in some pretty ordinary weather where you out in a cyclone or something I've never been in a dryer cc boat plus i think you will find Nigel got married and was away for a while everyone is entitled to holiday doesn't make them a bad business person

If your into cats the 6 meter centre console version of the leisure cats brumby is pretty good. Not quite local made but local,owned.
