Evolution Boats 550 Platinum
550 Platinum - Retired Model
For anglers who demand a high–performance and versatile hull, and refuse to compromise on the full array of boating and fishing essentials, the award–winning Evolution 550 Platinum delivers on all accounts.
Measuring 6.20m LOA, the 550 Platinum has a sharp deep–V, a beautifully-flared bow profile and a bold 21° deadrise for smooth and dry performance in rough water. A broad 2.49m beam with wide reverse chines provides the stability at rest and responsive handling when the going gets tough.
The 550 Platinum continues to defy Australian boating design standards by offering anglers a class–leading 2.10m internal beam at the transom for maximum fishing space. Bluewater angling is well accommodated with a full–height transom housing multiple built–in tackle boxes, a deluxe fibreglass baitboard, stainless steel rod holders, moulded coamings for comfort, twin batteries hidden behind flush mount transom lockers, plus a deck wash to keep the workstation clean when the fishing gets dirty.
Navigating from the helm is a comfortable experience with a fully-moulded glass windscreen providing ample protection from the elements and a moulded dash panel allowing plenty of space for marine electronics and outboard instrumentation. Quality upholstered bucket seats, hydraulic steering and quality stainless steel fittings throughout will impress even the fussiest of seasoned boaters.
Outboard power options range from 100hp to 150hp with the 150L underfloor fuel tank guaranteeing long hours out on the shelf or the reef and confidence getting back to the ramp. Launch and retrieve duties are also simplified thanks to a custom built drive–on / drive–off trailer.
The 550 Platinum delivers on style, design, features, space and performance. The only challenge for new owners will be deciding how to best use their incredibly versatile trailer boat with all their new found fishing friends.
