Back in SIB-land with a new outfit...

Not been on here much since last summer but good to be back with a new outfit just collected today - very clean Suzumar 3.6m and a really nice low hours 2006 Mariner 15. Very decent little trailer too. Solid floor this time - still have the airfloor Zodiac 3.4m and Tohatsu 9.8 but not for long I guess.

Got the outfit for the engine and trailer really - anticipating finding the elusive Y Class one day but the Suzumar will do nicely in the meantime. These are made by the Honwave manufacturers and build quality, especially the transom/tube interface is impressive.

Dream purchase process as the guy selling is a Mastercraft service agent with lake alongside and insisted we took it round the lake as much as we liked before buying.

Nice outfit, not very often you can try before you buy. You won't have any trouble selling the Tohatsu or the Zodiac for that matter.

That's the best dealer/buyer ever, trying it out for yourself for whatever time it takes to test that combo, along no questions asked.

Happy Boating

Yep a great looking outfit Max. Having been raised mucking about in clinker rowing boats I like to see a bit of varnished timber like yours. Also very keen on the Suzumar chunky transom build with strong attachment to tubes as this is an area where previous SIBs of mine have failed.

Look forward to performance reports to see if you find it sturdy and very stable as we do with our similar 3.5 Honwave.
