The Everyman 685 Sports Fisher

Dear Russell

It is my pleasure to be able to provide you with a testimonial for the ‘Everyman 685 S/F’ Boat which I bought in January 2011.

I researched a wide range of boats, both aluminium and fibreglass, and I believe that the boat I now own satisfies all of my needs and represents the best quality for money currently available on the market.

From the point of first contact with you right through until now, I have found you and your approach to me as a customer, to be fantastic.  You have been helpful, knowledgeable and you have had a flexible ‘can do’ attitude throughout the process of the planning, building and delivery of my boat and you have remained available and  helpful for any ongoing enquiries I have had and advice I have required.

I have had the ability to customise the fittings on my boat which I have enjoyed.  Having trailed the equivalent boat with the standard 5mm hull I have been incredibly impressed with the difference that the 6mm hull has made in terms of the hull strength and rigidity and, the resultant improvements in the ease and comfort of the ride, as it effortlessly carves through even moderate chop.

I have found that the Yamaha 4 stroke 200hp has no problem in pushing my boat along at a top speed of 40 knots and a comfortable cruising speed of 20-30 knots, dependent on the seas.   The 685 S/F has a comfortable cabin and ‘bridge’ enclosure and a roomy fishing deck which comfortably houses at least 4 adult fishermen.

My boat is easy to get on and off the voyager trailer and travels very comfortably on the road.  I have already had a number of great days fishing around the Coromandel and Bay of Plenty and look forward to many more.

I am happy to chat with anyone that may wish to know more about my experiences with your company and with my boat.  Good luck for the boat show.
