Hurricane deck boats have rapidly found a place in the local market, the first models snapped up for their versatility, performance and array of features as standard. The next delivery, due in December, will feature two new models of the US-built boats and already the Hurricane hype is building.
“This is our third shipment in six months,” says Paul Atallah, Director at Hurricane Australia.
“They are great boats for multi-generational families and groups of friends wanting to enjoy every kind of water activity – the perfect all-rounders!”
The FunDeck 236 WB has all the attributes of a sportsboat with the capacity and stability of a pontoon. At 7.07m, this highly adaptable dayboat will appeal to boaties looking for the ultimate party platform, which is just as well-appointed for fishing, skiing, towing or sunset drinks with friends and family.
The massive range of features of the FunDeck 236 WB includes a generous Wet Bar for which this model is named, with table, handy drink holders, sink, tap, and plenty of space for ice, refreshments and food in the insulated seating.
There are two large swivel helm chairs, double bimini, comfy seating for up to 12 people, freshwater washdown at the stern, pop up changeroom, snap in carpet, quick release fenders, LED lighting and Audio Marine stereo system. For the anglers, there’s the latest Lowrance Fishfinder.
Powered by the acclaimed Yamaha 200hp engine, the FunDeck 236 WB will deliver a top speed of 37 knots (70kmh), and thanks to the legendary Hurricane fibreglass “cathedral hull” handles like a bowrider and requires a lot less maintenance than aluminium craft. A custom-made boat cover ensures your pride and joy is protected with it’s not in use.
With a draft of just 33cm, the FunDeck can access shallow reaches and pull up on the beach, which is ideal for the safety and comfort of the whole family.
The Hurricane self-bailing system keeps the cockpit and everything in it dry and comfortable. The wide beam and spacious floor plans create the ultimate comfort zone for any activity. Most importantly, Hurricane boats have positive floatation which makes them virtually unsinkable!
Also due for arrival in the New Year is the sensational, top-of-the-line Hurricane SunDeck 2400, a bowrider-style deck boat with a deep-V hull to ensure stability and a smooth, dry ride.
At 7.3m, with room for up to 12 people and a large bimini for protection, this premium model is fully-optioned with the fishing package comprising removable fishing seat at the bow with rod storage clips, Simrad touchscreen Fishfinder and chartplotter and LED-lit Audio Marine system.
The SundDeck 2400 also boasts snap in carpet throughout and onto the full-width swim platform, quick release fenders, freshwater washdown at the stern and a step-down, enclosed electric WC. Powered by a 250hp Yamaha engine, the SunDeck 2400 has performance to match its profile, delivering up to 42 knots (78kmh).
Aiming to be the “one stop shop” for deck/pontoon boats, the team at Hurricane Boats Australia has taken on distribution of the full complement of quality models from the same manufacturer, offering Aussie boaties the most extensive range of these versatile craft across the spectrum of features, uses and pricing.
Paul Atallah and Grant Flanagan will add the Aqua Patio, Sanpan and Sweetwater boats to their line-up in 2019.
“They are truly incredible,” says Grant. “You won’t have to go any further to start your deck boat lifestyle – we have the biggest and best value selection of any dealer in the country.”
