The Gold Coast Boating Centre reviews the cleverly-designed Stessl 590 Trophy Centre Console.
“DAMN, that’s a good-looking boat” were the first words out of my mouth upon laying eyes on the 2018 Stessl 520 Bluewater.
Long-standing alloy boat manufacturer, Stessl Boats, has launched a new, mid-sized side console boat called the Stessl 485 Apache Pro. This smooth sided, full-featured new boat is just the right size to fit into your garage at home and to tow behind a small car or SUV. Paired with Yamaha's all new 75hp four-stroke outboard, the Stessl Apache Pro is a versatile, nimble, well mannered bay and harbour fishing/family boat.
Fish the bay, harbour or offshore in this tough new bluewater runabout. Built with Stessl's Platerix plate-alloy hull for maximum strength and durability, this sharply priced sport fisher has a raised deck, "shelter runabout" configuration, loads of interior space, ample freeboard, and a sharp bow entry shape for carving up the chop. Rigged with a Yamaha 115hp four-stroke, the 520 Bluewater is a welcome addition to the alloy fishing-trailerboat market.
