--SOUTHWIND 770 OFFSHORE--One look at the hull design with its deep 20 deadrise, 2.47m beam and generous reverse chines, and it is little wonder the boat offers such head-sea recovery and stability -- both at rest and on the go.The boat is built around a moulded longitudinal grid system, and the transom uses a Klegecell closed cell foam core to completely eliminate structural timber.Southwind undertook some unique testing when developing the 770 including the use of computer modelling and stress measurement to refine the final construction specifications.The cockpit is deep throughout and is self-draining through scuppers set well clear of the waterline. Long-range travel is well within the scope of the 770.The boat is fitted with twin F100 Yamahas that were fitted only 18 months ago and are still under factory warranty. All service history is available on the motors as well as the boat.Weight distribution is good and would allow for the additional payload of scuba tanks and commercial size loads.One outstanding feature of this boat is the amount of storage onboard, and the centre console is by no means the only large storage area on the boat.Towards the bow is a two-tiered section with storage hatches below, afforded by the considerable width of the boat this far forward. The hatches form two ascending platforms leading to the foredeck and anchor well which doubles as a casting platform.The lower platform is a seat with a large general-purpose storage space below, and this is backed by a chain/rope locker. Further storage is found below a seat set in the front of the console, then there is also the console storage space protected by acrylic doors.Side pockets, with rod and pole racking, run the length of the boat with two large storage boxes at the transom. One of these is insulated and can be plumbed for livebait if required.If you are after a great fishing/runabout boat then look no further. She is currently at The Spit and ready for inspection.Please call Ben Hammond on 02 9968 1800 to make an appointment.
