Solent 6.0

just noticed the Solent 6.0 is only 2.2 mts Beam,, is that wide enough?? i had a Humber which was 2.0 mts Beam and it was very unstable, want to put side by side seating and wide consol to match,, will that be ok ??

Go and take a test drive and see for yourself!

Side by side seating is the standard configuration, fits fine, although the Solent console isn't the widest on the market.

Never had any problems and my console is further forward than most , as Simmo said arrange a test drive with Kevin or Lee their demo boat is 6.5 so will give you an idea .

My 6.5 is incredibly stable even in real rough. Never had any trouble. My configuration is 2 + 4 jockeys and a double console.
