Here are the five best fibreglass fishing boats contenders at Australia’s Greatest Boats 2016. At some time in the last 12 months, each boat was thoroughly tested in the field by one of our boat reviewers, where it was found to have scored very highly. The five highest scoring fibreglass fishing boats were then invited to attend Australia’s Greatest Boats 2016.

Mako 234 CC

Mako 234 Centre Console

Among the many American centre console fishing boats coming to Australia, the Mako 234 CC certainly doesn’t disappoint. The layout maximises space and fishability, the price is reasonable, and ride out wide is simply superb.




Arvor 690 Diesel

Arvor 690 Diesel

Think Arvor and you think shaftdrive European-style fishing boats. The latest Arvor diesel-powered boats offer a wider range of applications. Indeed, fishing is one the things these boats do best.





Northbank 750 Hard Top

Northbank 750 Hard Top

We’d heard great things about the 750 Hard Top from Northbank Boats so we invited them back to see if the rumours were true. Comfortable, accommodating, well-constructed and with a good finished, the 750 HT has superb handling with a big-boat feel




Robalo Cayman 206

Robalo Cayman 206

Robalo Boats is famous for its offshore gamefishing boats. The Cayman 206 is a high-quality, fishing boat. It has a blend of Kevlar and Hydropel vinylester resin in its composite, foam-filled hull, along with premium gelcoats and a limited 10-year hull warranty.




Scout 195 Sportfish

Scout 195 Sportfish

The Scout 195 Sportfish might not be utterly dedicated to fishing needs but that’s exactly what’s great about it – it’s a boat that also suits family boating. Finishes are great, the layout is luxurious for a centre console of this size and it has awesome performance and handling.
