Highlander 465 Boat
Highlander 465 Boat
The Highlander 465 and Highlander Fast Fisher share the same attractive and efficient hull, which performs well at low speed or on the plane without the need for large outboard motors.
These boats fulfil a wide range of roles ranging from family outings, fishing, hiring, club and harbour launch use or even dropping the odd lobster pot!
The Highlander 465 is available as an open boat or with a cuddy and a choice of 2 levels of specification.
Standard features include
- built in buoyancy
- stainless steel keelband and handrails
- an effective non-slip floor finish
- high quality deck fittings
Our mouldings are produced by hand using quality materials and we take pride in the quality of workmanship that goes into building a Highlander Boat.
Engines of between 6 and 30hp are recommended, with the lower power ratings giving displacement characteristics and speeds of 6-7 knots, suitable for canals and inland waters with speed limits . A 30hp Tohatsu outboard will give around 20 knots with two adults on board. We regard 25/30hp as the optimum, giving useful performance and good fuel economy. Our boat packages are based on Tohatsu outboards, however we supply other brands if required.
The Highlander 465 has two lockable storage compartments, a steering console with mechanical steering and a single upholstered seat mounted on a simple plinth an additional matching seat can be supplied if required.
Available as an open boat with a sensibly proportioned cuddy which offers excellent visibility and good protection from the elements. Access to the foredeck for mooring is provided by a generous hatch.
A wide range of options including canopies, covers, bulkheads, cushions and electronics.
