Sammo

We run a Avon 5.6m with a 90Hp Mariner 4 stroke. Previously it was powered by a Mercury 90Hp 2 stroke.

It is an excellent boat, well matched to the engine, fast and fun but highly capable in rough seas.

I wouldn't have any issues recommending one

Paul

PS: Please call or email with any specific questions. Some photos to be found on the website
