We were totally impressed with everything Watsons Marine has achieved.
We had been looking at upgrading to a bigger boat for some time and had looked at a range of boats at many boat shows. At the 2016 Brisbane Boat Show, we had the pleasure to meet Frank, Denise and Glenn from Watson’s Marine. The quality of the Vindicator, the hull design, trailers and over all finish impressed us and we were offered an on water test run that confirmed our decision. We signed up just before Christmas 2016 and the process started in early 2017. Frank and Denise sent through photos and kept in touch on a regular basis and we were welcome to look at the boat at various stages of the build. Shayluna was completed in September 2017 and it was launched with a test run off Tin Can bay. We were totally impressed with everything Watsons Marine has achieved. These guys treat you like family and are only too willing to work with each customer on their requirements. They provided some excellent advice on what to put or not to put on the boat along the way based on their years of experience. We towed our 5.80 Vindicator Shayluna to just north of Bowen at Christmas time 2017 on its first major trip. It was over 1000Kms of towing and it towed exceptionally well due to the custom built Vindicator trailer. We fished the reefs 60 kms offshore and felt totally safe in some choppy conditions. The ride is smooth and with twin 70HP Yamahas the hull performs very well and it was good on fuel. We are looking forward to many more trips in our Vindicator Shayluna. Thanks to Frank, Denise, Glenn, Christine and the team at Watsons Marine.
