The much-anticipated release of Tristram Marine’s 821 Offshore last Thursday reinforced the brand’s unquestionable dominance of the high-end trailer boat market.
It is hard to improve on perfection, but somehow Tristram Marine have done it….again. The 821 Offshore is, without doubt, the best and most innovative model that the Hamilton-based company has ever produced and is a credit to the Fink family and all the team at Tristram Marine.
Tristram Fink, says that since this model’s inception, the brief has been ‘wide open seas’ and that size, range and performance immediately became the hero features. That coupled to an impeccable finish and style, sets the new Tristram 821 Offshore in a league of its own.
This long-range blue water boat is set to change N.Z.’s GRP trailer boat industry with its highly sought after 8.77m LOA and 2.78m beam, broad shoulders, wide side decks, raised sheer and trademark aggressive but sleek ‘Tristram’ profile. In addition to the ever-popular diesel sterndrive powerplant option, Tristram has also released a twin outboard configuration with optional joystick piloting for 360-degree skipper control and Skyhook digital anchoring.
Crafted in-house with state-of-the-art CAD software, Tristram’s new 821 Offshore is within 0.025mm of accuracy, with subtle mouldings that create an incredibly soft, dry and stable ride.
Several unique features include two draining 3m underfloor rod lockers for in situ gear washing, an 80L live bait tank and the option of built-in tuna tubes. As well there are large storage lockers under the bunks, seats and cockpit floor providing even the most discerning of game anglers the ultimate fishing weapon.
In conjunction with Simrad, the Tristram 821 Offshore exclusively offers a full glass helm, featuring a 100% digital information display. What begins as a black glass panel lights up to reveal a range of GPS, depth sounder, engine and on-board systems displays with just the turn of the key.
Pictures say a thousand words so here are a few to hold you over until our forthcoming review in the next issue. (Sept-Oct issue of Pacific PowerBoat).
