|Westwinds unique ride is due to a pad keel which starts at the stern, 350mm wide and tapers to the bow. This is why it requires very little horse power to start and speed up.
The key features of a Westwind design is a high bow 1.38m, a length of 5.80m with a beam of 2m, gunwale height. 63m at the front and. 56m at the cockpit. The high bow and gunwale provide bouyancy and elevation for casting and retrieval and carrying heavy loads, while minimizing spray coming on board.
The deck is self draining and features plenty of storage including a live fish tank.
The Westwind 580 as a standard boat comes with 4 bollards, bow storage, centre console, bait tank x 2, live fish tank (circulation pump optional), 120L inboard stainless fuel tank and stainless bow rails.
