NEXe will offer to any sailor the capability to convert a manual flying sail furler into a motorized one by simply replacing the standard spool

Smuggler Ribs on display & Sea trials

Sydney Marine Brokerage owner Andrew Withers went looking for a new workboat when he discovered Smuggler Marine, and realised he had not only solved his own boating choice but had also found a new solution for others in the same boat, so to speak. Andrew wanted a safe but fast vessel that could carry prospective clients to his listings of moored vessels around Sydney without doing damage to the vulnerable hulls.

Smuggler is a boutique builder from New Zealand and its new Strata 580 mixes a quality finish with the practical design of a rigid inflatable. Enjoy sea trials over the Club Marine Pittwater Sail Expo.

Welcome the Strata 580, the Smuggler Strata 580 has reached the twin goals of both light-weight and strength using a multilayered laminate with full-length bearers and triaxial structural glass. And at only around 600kg hull weight, it is easily pushed to impressive speeds by modest engine power.

The 580 is Smuggler's latest release, coming from a demand for a larger version of the popular 550. Significant chines and pronounced running strakes along each side can be seen in the photos hereabouts, and provide lift and stability to fibreglass running surfaces flowing to a deep 23° deadrise at the transom. Meanwhile, the 500mm tubes add to the impressive steadiness when at rest. 

Like all rigid inflatables, the Smuggler sits close to the water, but a neatly moulded optional hardtop over the helm area gave a more substantial presence to our review model. The centre console layout provides the most efficient use of space, allowing restricted access past the helm position on both sides.
