The OCEAN CRAFT 6000 Caloundra Class Extreme Reef Fisher is the Latest from the OCEAN CRAFT range of boats and is packed full of features

It wasn't so long ago that alloy duckies were looked upon as a passing fad

But that was before the OCEAN CRAFT range of inflatable style design all aluminium plate alloy hulls came along.

Customers have the option of painted or unpainted hulls from marine grade plate aluminium alloy that are virtually maintenance free

There are a number of unique features both at rest and underway, and when turning

The 6 metre can be turned at maximum revs without having to decelerate first and the design of the hull also enables the boat to tackle wind and waves head on

The Variable deadrise Vari Hull gets you out of the hole and up on the plane faster too whilst maintaining a comfortable and dry ride with maximum water throwdown
