Award-winning fibreglass boat manufacturer Evolution Boats has launched two impressive new models – just in time for summer. The Evolution 500 Sportsfisher and Evolution 500 Santa Fe ensure low-fuss, low-cost boating that can be enjoyed by anglers and families alike.
Evolution 500 2008 version
Built on Evolution’s signature deep-V / wide reverse chine, hand-laid fibreglass hull, each model measures 5.00m (excluding pod and bowsprit) and have a beam of 2.25m, which creates a roomy cockpit that boasts an internal measurement of 1.83m at the transom.
Designed with first time boating in mind, the 500 Sportsfisher is the perfect boat in which to start your fishing adventures. An easy-access anchor, walk-through windscreen, full-length side pockets and extra storage compartments make for a clean deck, meaning you won’t be left tripping over your equipment when the fish are on!
Like all Evolution boats, the 500 Sportsfisher is designed and manufactured by serious anglers with a commitment to quality, safety and rock-solid stability at rest. So whether you’re in the bay or on the lake, this boat is sure to provide many years of enjoyable and functional fishing.
Evolution’s new 500 Santa Fe has been designed as a family all-rounder. A rear lounge with lift-up seats provides ample storage for skis, vests, ropes and toys, while a 40L icebox under the deck will keep food and drink cold so you can enjoy a full day on the water.
The Santa Fe also incorporates a stainless steel ski pole, 100L fuel tank (for extended days on the water) and is rated to carry up to a 115hp Evinrude E-Tec outboard.
Easy to tow behind an average family car, both the 500 Sportsfisher and 500 Santa Fe are equally easy to launch and retrieve on the custom-built drive-on, drive-off trailer.
