10 Sep Redbay exhibit their latest 650 on stand E71 at the Southampton International Boat Show
Suzuki Marine Demonstrator ‘Aurora’
Redbay Boats have built a new demonstrator boat in conjunction with Suzuki UK. The boat is based on the highly popular 650 launched back in 2006. It is rigged with the latest generation of Suzuki DF90 Four Stroke Outboards. In fact the engines are the first two of the next generation of outboards to be delivered into Europe. The new DF90 will not be available until mid October for supply. The engineare 35kg lighter than their predecessors but still pack as mighty a punch.
We had a great day’s testing in Redbay with a nice swell from the south east, this allowed Tom to have a real play and put the boat through it’s paces. The boat is capable of pushing 40 knots and lifts on to the plane very easily on one engine.
For anyone interested the boat is available on Stand E71 at Southampton for viewing and demo, it will also be attending Earl’s Court in November before going to EXCEL, Seawork and RIBEX in 2009.
The specification included:
- Twin DF90 Four Stroke Suzuki Outboards
- 4 seat Explorer Console
- Raymarine C80 GPS Chartplotter
- DSM Depth Sounding
- DSC VHF
- Echomax Radra Reflector
- and much more…….
