Designed and built as the perfect mix of adventure and comfort – for fishing and cruising without compromise – the new 905 was on display at the Southampton Boat Show where this first look video was filmed.



At first glance, the 905 Pilothouse is focussed purely on fishing. The cockpit is fairly stark and practical – ideal for a day's sport; less so for sunbathing and socialising. There is a large, movable storage bench in the centre of the cockpit and the benches for seating either side are designed to fold very unobtrusively into the sides.

However, head indoors and there is room for seating, dining and sleeping including a fully enclosed heads compartment. There's plenty of natural light in the main cabin and down below two double bunks make best use of the space.
