The Perfect Fishing Platform - (and she's fully trailerable)

The pictures says it all...

These pictures are proudly provided by Branko Lenger. Taken in his new 2016 Caribbean 2300 on his very first fishing trip on the new boat.  The exact location is a secret, but we beleive it's somewhere off the New South Wales, south coast.

Branko, if all of your catches are that size we think you'll need a BIGGER boat!

   Notice to ALL dealers

For immediate circulation to all

With the increasing availability of ethanol blended fuels, we find it timely to reiterate our caution as listed in our Boat Owner’s Manual regarding its use in boats.

Ethanol blended fuels are NOT suitable for use in FRP and aluminium fuel tanks, NOR are they suitable for the fuel system and the motor/s installed. We would therefore urge you to pass on this very important information to all your customers with petrol powered boats of any brand.
