The 495F is aimed at families and first-time boat buyers. It ticks all the right boxes for those looking to take their first foray into the boating world – value for money, soft, safe and stable ride, easy tow, launch and retrieve.
But don’t let the size fool you. The 495F is just as comfortable as a fishing boat as it is pulling the kids on a tube and can handle the rough water just as easily as it can explore the inland water ways.
Small enough to tow with the family car or SUV (on a single axle trailer) but still with all the features of its big sisters such as full length cockpit side pockets, live bait tanks, large cabin area, revamped dash for gauges and electronics.
4th generation model which superseded the 493F – known for being one of the largest selling boats in Australian boating history.
