Seafarer Boats releases new model Victory 6.0 [Media Release]

Seafarer Vogue 5.5m fibreglass trailerboat

Iconic Australian fibreglass boat brand Seafarer Boats and The Haines Group today unveiled an all-new Victory 6.0 model.

A boat with a very long and revered history, Seafarer has transformed the Victory 6.0 with a whole new above-the-water design and has kitted it out with a plethora of new options. While keeping the original lines, a whole new layout has been introduced with a redesigned transom, deck, dash and cabin, improving on what has been a highly respected offshore fishing boat for many years. 

Most notably, the addition of a hard top option has transformed the Victory 6.0 – a must-have feature for many fisherman in the quest to fish more remote areas in sometimes testing conditions. A dive/side door also now comes standard – ideal for easy access when diving or trailered, or bringing aboard a huge pelagic. The hard top option includes 2 x hatches in the roof for ventilation and a Hella LED deck light.  

National Manager – Boat Division, Chris Thompson says the new Victory 6.0 continues the Seafarer legacy with its build quality and smooth ride.

“Seafarer fans and enthusiasts acknowledge our boats for being the ultimate fishing vessels and this release is no different,” Mr Thompson said.

“The standard features list includes premium finishes and materials, including stainless steel rails and steering wheel, heavy duty rod holders, live bait tanks and moulded seats to deliver an exceptional offshore fishing boat that’s perfect for Australian conditions,” said Mr Thompson.

See the new Victory 6.0 for the first time at Laguna Boating Centre / Seafarer Boats stand (in the Sport, Leisure, Fishing precinct) at this year’s Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show from 23-26 May. 

The Victory 6.0 is available to order now. For more information on the Seafarer range contact your nearest Seafarer Boats dealer.

Seafarer Boats welcomes Dinghy World as new Perth dealer [media release]

Perth boaties can now experience the legendary Seafarer ride with a new dealer, Dinghy World, appointed for the region.

A boating icon since its inception in 1957, Seafarer has forged a strong reputation with the Australian boating community for its build quality, practicality and for having a hull that performs exceptionally well on the water – even under extreme conditions.

Dinghy World owners David and Vince De Luca believe the Aussie-made fibreglass boat brand is a great fit for the boating lifestyle the local area has to offer, with a selection of models already on display at their dealership in Como, south of Perth.

"Seafarer Boats has been held in high regard by boaties for generations and we are proud to be the new authorised dealer for the region," said Vince De Luca.

"We feel the brand is perfectly suited for the waters of WA and are extremely excited to be able to offer the full Seafarer range to our customers," said Vince.

Masterfully handcrafted in The Haines Group factory west of Brisbane, Queensland, the brand boasts outstanding performance, quality, craftsmanship and design, with an impressive list of standard features and premium finishes.

With models ranging from the 4.85m sports fisher (Vantage) to the 6.8m full cabin (Voyager), there's a Seafarer model to suit everyone's needs, whether that be for a family day trip to Rottnest Island or a weekend of offshore sports fishing.

See the Vantage 4.85, V-Sea 5.0 and Viking 5.5 now at Dinghy World, 250-252 Canning Highway, Como or call David and Vince on 08 9367 6555 to find out more.

Good Times Marine puts the Vagabond 6.2 and Victory 6.0 head to head

The team at Good Times Marine, our NSW dealers located at Taren Point, recently put two Seafarer favourites to the ultimate test – the Victory 6.0 fitted with Mercury Marine's new 200hp V6 versus the Vagabond 6.2 with Mercury's new 225hp V6 Cold Fusion.

GTM wanted to put the same powerhead/prop to the test to see if the same speed would be achieved based on the power to weight ratio of each boat and motor. Which Seafarer will come out on top? Watch the video below to find out!

If you're interested in learning more about this test you can contact the Good Times Marine team for more info.
