Description

Positioned as “the next generation recreational fishing boat”, the Parker 700 Pilothouse is designed for days on the water with friends and fishing rods.

At 7.58m LOA and with a beam of 2.55m, the Polish-built vessel is rated for up to eight passengers.

Making its Australian debut at the 2023 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, 25 to 28 May, the Parker 700 Pilothouse is considered one of the pioneers of the pilothouse design in Europe, capable of getting anglers to their fishing grounds quickly, in comfort and safety.

The V-shaped hull is lightweight at 1,640kg with a low planing threshold. Powered by a maximum 225 hp engine and capable of a top speed of 25 knots, the Parker 700 Pilothouse is stable, dry, and easy to manoeuvre.

The pilothouse is asymmetrically positioned to the port side so that guests can safely move from the cockpit and aft deck to the front deck via the wider starboard passageway. High sides, handrails and grab handles add to the safety features.

A hallmark of the Parker range is the inclusion of a second steering position, common in commercial boats in northern Europe. The second control allows piloting from the cockpit, facilitating docking and trolling as well as allowing the skipper to stay in the cockpit with guests.

The pilothouse has been designed to be ergonomically comfortable, well sheltered and affording the skipper optimal vision from the helm thanks to the inverted windscreen. This glass configuration offers many advantages, such as more interior space in the cabin and in the bow, better drainage of water, moisture does not accumulate on the windshield, reduces glare from the sun and reflection on the windshield, plus exceptional all-round visibility.

The large open aft deck is an impressive 4.3-square-metres with plenty of room for fishing gear and table and seating for enjoying lunch or refreshments at the end of an expedition.

There are many options available to suit the owner’s requirements, including bow thruster, net, line, and tine tails, among other equipment for longer trips and accommodation if that’s a preference.
