A combination of the Coulam 152 Defender fishing boat with the Mastervolt 2kw Pod drive. The first boats in Europe to be fitted with the Mastervolt Pod drive system.
At first sight of the boat in the water, other than the stainless steel tiller, it looks like a standard Coulam 15 fishing boat. However, look a little closer and you can see the future of fly fishing boats. The centre thwart has been widened a little to incorporate the two 200 amp gel mono-block batteries, the motor controller, and the 24v 20 amp battery charger. The easy to use gear / throttle level is conveniently placed to give total control when manoeuvring and driving the boat. Because the tiller is directly connected to the pod drive, you get full steering in reverse as well as a responsive control in forwards.
The extra weight, about 170kgs, is mainly under the centre thwart so the handling and drifting characteristics are uncompromised. The powerful motor gives the same performance as an equivalent 4hp four stroke petrol outboard.
The boat offers a complete package – the leading fly fishing boat complete with a fully automatic on board charging system its a simply case of unplug and go.
