Review: Arvor 755 Weekender
After looking at the full-sized Arvor 855 Weekender last month, we hear the best of the big boat has been pushed down the range to the smaller Arvor 755 Weekender.
According to an Arvor Boats media release, “[the] sporty and spacious model is our midrange, built on the cornerstones of safety, comfort and style. Designed for nine persons it is perfectly suited to explore offshore, harbours, rivers and lakes.”
The last comment about the capacity of nine people may surprise some, but it hints at the safety inherent in all Arvor boats. To make CE Category C, as the Arvor 755 Weekender does, the model has to pass stringent testing, part of which includes at maximum load a simulated test of nine passengers plus fuel. Astounding.
The Arvor 755 Weekender comes with a huge range of standard features, including a foredeck sun lounge, aft seat with folding backrest, cockpit table, cabin curtains, opening roof hatch, an enclosed sea toilet with holding tank, refrigerator, two burner stove, cockpit L-lounge, cockpit sun lounge, shore power, bow electric windlass, trim tabs, and hardtop spreader light.
The Smart edition comprises those options that are most frequently requested by customers at a competitive price and high availability. Individual options include teak flooring, coloured hull, Simrad radar, air-conditioning (using shore power only), diesel heater and more.
Following the world premiere at the recent Paris Boat Show, Australia will first lay eyes on the 755 Weekender at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, which runs between May 19 – 22. After that, it will be introduced at the Sydney International Boat Show.
Arvor Australia Director Peter Collins said: “The Arvor 755 Weekender has been designed with aesthetics, quality and class-leading space in mind to provide lasting value. Every journey is different, that’s why we made sure you can adapt the boat’s configuration to your journey’s needs. Whether cruising or relaxing, the 755 Weekender is ready to let you live the easy life”.
