5.7m Sabre-Gill (Center Console) DIY kit

View Information Drawings D57-T1 (pdf)


This boat has been designed for the fisherman that wants to fish either estuary or ocean and the Sabre-Gill can be even set up for both. It has a strong sharp bow entry, flattening out to a 14 degree dead rise. So it skims off the surface without digging down, but it will cut through waves & chop very nicely.

The boat has been designed with a provision to fit a casting platform up front and it can easily be adapted to suit most electric motors. The platform is sold as an optional extra, as it is not recommend for the boats primarily being used for ocean fishing. The floor is checker plate, (that can be carpeted if you wish) and there is dry storage under the forward anchor well. The transom has been designed for an optional live bait tank and a locker to house the battery. This boat comes standard with in floor kill tank and a 100 litre fuel tank.
