Tips and Advice

Jeanneau Merry Fisher 695 Series Two Review
John Willis is testing the new Merry Fisher 695 Series Two, which features a completely overhauled design. As an added bonus, it has also been rated to take a 200hp, Mercury V6 four-stroke that is capable of reaching speeds up to 38 knots.
Formosa 580 SRT Vision Cab Boat Review
John Willis is testing out the new Formosa 580 SRT Vision Cab at South West Rocks, New South Wales. This model features the extra high cabin, ideal for big blokes like John. It's a voluptuous boat with good internal beam, full-length bunks, wide shoulders and generous internal freeboard. The 580 is powered by a gutsy and quiet four-stroke 175HP Suzuki featuring troll mode and Humminbird Helix 12.
Jeanneau Merry Fisher 1095 Boat Review
John Willis is on board the Jeanneau Merry Fisher 1095. John says it's the ultimate weekender for family boating or fishing. The layout has an alfresco feel and appointments include stand-up shower, U-shaped lounge, and walkaround for easy docking. John is a big fan of the twin Mercury 300HP V8 outboard motors fed by twin 400L fuel tanks offering a range of 160 nautical miles.
