Club Marine contributor John Willis heads to Eden, New South Wales. It’s one of his favourite places! John checks out the facilities for trailerboaters, species to catch and local attractions for the family including whale watching aboard Cat Balou cruisers and visiting the old Davidson whaling station. Of course an Eden trip wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Killer Whale Museum.
Chris Beattie is aboard the Maritimo M64 Enclosed Fly Bridge. It's built for long-range touring and everything about this boat is big, including the spacious saloon that could entertain a dozen guests, the massive galley and a lazarette that can be reconfigured for a tender, stabilizer, fishing cockpit or storage. The M64 also features twin 13L, 1000HP turbo-charged diesel Volvo Penta engines and shaft-drives.
Chris Beattie is at Sanctuary Cove aboard the Focus Power 33. He’s with importer Rob McIntyre stretching the legs on the 520HP diesel-powered Steyr, capable of 37 knots. The 33 is a deep hull with lots of natural light and an elevated helm. It will suit a large family or two couples on weekenders.

Chris Beattie is at the Sunshine Coast testing the Sea-Doo GTR 230 for Club Marine TV. This is the most popular model in the Sea-Doo range featuring a supercharged 1630cc, 3-cylinder engine. The hull has a low centre of gravity improving cornering and stability.
John Willis is aboard one of his favourite Australian-made trailerboats. It’s the Northbank 750 Enclosed Hard Top. It has a work boat mentality but with a recreational finish. It’s powered by a Mercury V8 and capable of 70km/h.
