Here's a boat that stirs the sports angler unlike any other - the legendary Galeforce 5.5 centre console... Built like the proverbial outhouse, has a cult like following with the die-hard sports fishing fraternity and for darn good reason as they provide a sensationally stable platform for the fly fisher and lure caster and yet when underway in steep chop, provide a ride that leaves conventional "tinnies" in their wake.

As the photos depict, the sheer volume offered in these 5.5m boats is huge! Storage abounds throughout the rig from the fitted bow lockers, the rod lockers both port and starboard mid ship under the gunwales to under the storage in the centre console helping you keep the gear away and the decks uncluttered. The helm chair provides seating for two and this is also a built in large esky!

In front of the console the "mother-in-law" seat is fitted or a good place to rest between fishing sessions. Again storage is provided under this as well. The bow casting platform is carpeted for additional grip when standing and the centre locker would make a great kill tank.

This 2-owner package has only recorded a low 176 hours use according to the computer diagnostic report on the outboard. The engine is the direct injection DI Evinrude ETEC and with 90Hp pushing this rig along at an economical and comfortable cruise speed of circa 20 - 25 knots. Like all our engines sold they are both computer and mechanically inspected and for buyers confidence backed with a BIA limited engine warranty removing the risks associated with buying privately.

The stern of the rig houses a plumbed live bait tank and a saltwater deck wash is fitted assisting in keeping the decks clean. We cant say that hull is a true self draining hull, but deck bungs will allow water to flow out when underway but when at rest some water may come back aboard - so lets call it wet decks ? An underfloor fuel tank of approx. 100l capacity provides ample range and a back up 24l fuel tank is stored under the console if going further afield.
