The R65 is sharp looking and functional.
Rated for challenging conditions, its high freeboard means it can be MCA coded.
Ideal for leisure use, chase boat duties, and many other commercial applications.
The high sheer bow, deep V and robust build give it outstanding sea keeping – even in adverse conditions. The R65 has been independently tested, earning a Category B offshore rating for both UK and EU sales. It comes with a choice of bolster, standard jockey or suspension jockey helm seat options. Under the deck is a 200L, 4mm aluminium fuel tank. It has a large two section anchor locker, with ample storage in the console and seating. Aft is a deep bilge pump well.
The console has ample space for port or starboard steering and can accommodate large navigation units etc. Its 8mm windscreen with stainless steel rail gives good protection from wind and spray. Tucked under the screen is a moulded compass plinth and handy recessed shelf for phones etc and space for a charging point.
The console hinges to give full access to the internal space. The battery fixing point is high in the console keeping it dry and away from water ingress.
We recommend 115 – 175 hp outboards to power the R65.
