Why Avon

Hi Andy,

Why did you settle on the Avon? Did you particularly want the Avon or did you look at the whole market?

I chose Avon because I trust the make. We have always had them as tenders for our yacht and they seem to go on for years.

It would be fair to say that I did not research the whole market. It made it an easier decision when I found out that there was an Avon dealer here, on the Island. I popped in to see them and they were very helpful and talked me through the various options etc.

I was going to get the OptiMax 115hp but I wanted the SmartCraft dials that come as standard with the 135hp. So I chose the 135hp.

I am still happy with my decision, but I guess the proof of the pudding will be in the eating!
