Professional Skipper Conrad Bagley shares his thoughts on the Integrity 360 Flybridge:
Conrad had the opportunity to deliver a 360 Flybridge from the Gold Coast to Sydney over the break, and like all good skippers he wasn’t concerned with putting to sea in non ideal conditions. Leaving the Gold Coast with a reasonable sea running courtesy of a 20 knot south easter Conrad and his colleague punched through the sea on their way to Coffs Harbour.
In Conrad’s words, “I was very surprised with how well the boat performed in challenging conditions. We pushed it a bit using a very economical 17 litres per hour and achieving 8 knots average into a strong wind and reasonable sea. The boat handled the conditions very well and was very stable for the whole trip.
“We left Coffs with a favourable 25 knot northerly allowing us to achieve up to 16 knots with the boat planing at times and still only using 17 litres per hour. The fuel economy of these boats is fantastic, and they handle all types of conditions with relative ease. The wide walk around side decks are also great as we were able to head up to the bow and watch the dolphins in our watch while being a long way out to sea. They are a great entertainers boat too, with the large cockpit and flybridge areas offering great external entertaining areas, and the saloon is also very spacious. There’s plenty of space in the bunks so we always felt very comfortable. They’re what I call a great retirement cruiser.”
Thanks to Conrad for his kind words.
