Bombard 7.3m 2004 Model

Hi, first time at this, anyway I have an Avon 5.6 Adventure at the moment with a 90hp Suzuki. I am looking at changing it for a 7.3m Bombard with a 200hp Honda 4 Stroke. The Bombard is a 2004 model and fully loaded with instruments and seating etc with a price difference of 2000. Does any one no any bad/good points ref the Bombard. If you do I would be interested to hear from you. Many thanks. Richard

Hello Niels,

I'll keep it in English.

I read about the bad handling of Bombard. Unfortunately (?) I recently bought one. Not a 720 but a 580 with a Yamaha F100. I was thinking of a Narwhal or Valiant but bought this one. Are they really that bad? The problem is that it's not easy to compare.

For I live in Limburg and here's not that much water I mostly use my boat during the summer holidays in Spain. Maybe I should sell it in august and look for another one. I can spend about euro 17.000. What is recommended.

P.S.: my wife prefers a normal seat

I'll go to Ribex next year the first time. Not by boat!!!

regards,

Stephan

Bad Handling

Hi, thanks for coming back, in the beginning of your message you put "I read about the bad handling", I was just wondering where you read that? so I might be able to look it up.

Thanks mate

Hi nauti buoy,

Niels was telling about the bad hull of the Bombard. But he talks about a Bombard 730. I have a 580 and hope that one is better.

What for...sake is a good rib (of about 5.80-6.00 m)

Stephan
