NEW DESIGN - Now with Pressure release valves and a higher abrasion resistance to scratches.
The 299 is the middle of the range, it is a similar width to the 220, but is longer and rated to carry 4 persons. There are 3 different floor options of aluminium, plywood or air deck and 2 colour options, olive green or camo.
Thanks to the catamaran design, the Fishmaster's are extremely stable on water providing increased safety and stability, even in unfavourable weather conditions. The inside space is larger compared to traditional inflatable boats of the same length, the reduced friction of the catamaran design on the water provides increased speed and manoeuvrability reducing battery/electric or fuel consumption.
Supplied with oars, row locks, foot pump and a carry bag.
SHIPPING: All Fishmaster boats exceed 30Kg and therefore the free shipping offer does not apply. If you are happy with this please place your order and we will contact you for the additional payment required (approximately £80.00 for Mainland UK only), alternatively please feel free to contact us to confirm postage costs before processing your order.
Pros & Cons of the floor options:
Aluminium or plywood gives a hard floor providing high stability/rigidity and are considered the better floor for fishing.
|Hard Floor Pros:||Hard Floor Cons:|
|Durable||Longer time to assemble|
|Stable||Usually less expensive than an air deck, but notice Jochym have priced boats the same no matter what floor it is supplied with. This maybe a short term option|
|Versatile||More difficult to carry and store|
Inflatable floor or 'air decks' reduces weight, they offer a harder floor than you would expect, but be aware that varying temperatures of night and day will affect the pressure and therefore stability. Being lighter the boat will be more affected by the wind. This floor is best used when the boat is needed to be carried distances and probably most useful in the 220 size.
|Air Deck Pros:||Air Deck Cons:|
|Additional buoyancy||Reduced weight means less stability and is more affected by wind|
|Saves weight and storage space||Usually more expensive, but notice Jochym have priced boats the same no matter what floor it is supplied with. This maybe a short term option|
|More portable||Can be punctured.|
|Easier and faster to assemble than a hard floor||Can't mount anything on to it, like you can on one of the hard floor options|
|Comfortable for sitting or kneeling on|
