The new outboard-powered Arvor Sportsfish range.


Arvor Boats Australia, a company that has specialised in diesel shaft-drive boats for the last 15 years, has introduced outboard-powered models as part of its Sportsfish range.

Three models between 6 and 7.5m have been announced. Arvor says the boats have the same sea-keeping qualities and stability as the Arvor Classic and Arvor Weekender models, and are capable of more than 30kts.

Designed for the North Sea and built in Europe, Arvor describes the Sportsfish range as “bringing together old school values with modern design.” Design features include a walkaround bow; large self-draining cockpit and bait holding tanks; large lockable cabin; large flat wrap-around windscreen, opening side hatches and sun roof, plus sealable hatches.

Other standard and optional features on an Arvor Sportsfish boat would include a bow thruster, electric windlass, fridge, sea toilet, bimini and additional rodholders.
