Fast-growing Australian-tinnie brand Anglapro has just expanded its successful side-console range with the release of four new Snipers. The cool-looking inshore and offshore fishing boats team purposeful looks with purpose-built layouts.
Built with hulls that have more vee than inshore ‘casting’ platforms of their length, the new Snipers cater for adventurous anglers who want to bridge the gap between enclosed waters and offshore fishing.
The Sniper is available in four hull sizes from the 4.5m pictured to a 4.95m model. Each boat features the structural toughness that has earnt Anglapro a keen following, and a wide body for stability, but a deeper vee for a more cushioned ride through wind and waves.
As the Sniper 444 Pro reveals above, the boats come with plenty of standard features for hardcore fishing. There are also options to create tournament-ready platforms, too.
Everything from electric-motor mounts to switchable seating, sub-floor tackle storage and a live-bait tank to a neat console accommodating of electronics comes standard on the 444 Pro.
The Sniper is said to be ideal for most fishing styles, from barra to bream, snapper to downrigging for kings, fishing up rivers, in big bays, harbours and on inshore reefs. The anchor well is nice and deep, too.
“The Sniper has the X factor,” says Anglapro’s principal Derek Rodway. “We went back to basics with this hull then got carried away and made it anything but basic.”
“The on-water performance of this hull is exhilarating, but you’re buzzing before you even pick up a rod. The platform is solid and the layout is in place to make fishing easier.”
The smart-looking Sniper 444 Pro was launched at the recent Sydney International Boat Show on the Good Times Marine stand. The boat-show rig has upgraded depth sounder and MotorGuide electric motor.
With a four-stroke Mercury 60hp outboard on trailer, the standard (loaded) Sniper 444 Pro packages sells for $23,300. Five were sold at the boat show and more buyers are in the wings. Dealer info and details at anglapro.com.au.
