Townsville Marine - Yamaha V Power Day

Townsville Marine presents....Yamaha V Power Day!

Feel the power! The exhilaration! Power that only a Yamaha V can provide!

Sure you can read the brochures and watch all the YouTube videos, but nothing is better than actually feeling the power of a Yamaha V8 or V6 on the back of the boat and in the water!

Townsville Marine has rigged 4 of the best boats on the water to put these finely tuned motors into your hands!

The massively powerful 5.3L V8 is bolted to the back of the flagship of the Hooker range, the 8M WRC!

On the plate side, we have the fully blown Bar Crusher 780HT with the fly by wire high performance V6 Yammie 300!

We will be down at Breakwater Marina on 22nd September from 9am to 1pm with 4 boats available for you to experience for yourself.

Check out the line up of boats that you can test and are available for sale at discounted prices!
  • 8M Hooker powered by 350HP V8 Yamaha 4 stroke
  • Bar Crusher 780HT powered by Yamaha 300HP V6
  • Bar Crusher 780C powered by Yamaha 300HP V6
  • Hooker 6.7M Sportscab powered by Yamaha 225HP V6
Want a new rig or trade in yours for one of our V-Power rigs? Specials!

Re-power your rig with a V Yammie and we'll do a great deal - trades welcome! We're doing business on the day, so if you are serious about a V6 or V8 Yamaha, talk to us as the pencils are already sharpened to give you the best deal!

Even if you are just thinking about a re-power, make sure you come down, do yourself a favour and get on board!

Like one of the boats on the water? All of the boats being tested are ready for sale on the day, so if you want a big reef boat powered by the big name in V power, talk to us - again, trades are welcome!

We have Yamaha Finance available at very competitive rates!

Register to for the day and we'll give you a Yamaha cap when you come on board for the ride!

Prospecting Bowling Green Bay

On Sunday Andrew and I went for a run out into Bowling Green Bay in search of some bottom that might hold good Fingermark. But despite a lot of sounding around we were unable to locate any 'honey holes'. We ended up down around the spit at Cape Bowling Green where Andrew hooked up a decent GT on the first cast into the current line. A fine capture on Barra gear. But the only other fish we could find in the area were baby Doggie Mackerel, Salmon and Grinner! So not a lot to say I'm afraid. But here is a nice clip of Andy landing his GT.

Shimano Stella 4000swb & TK3 701 First Look Video

I have put together a short video that takes a look at the Shimano Stella 4000swb and TK3 701 combination. This is the first video of this kind that I have ever produced. This was really just a practice using video and audio recording equipment and cutting together in Adobe Premiere. So this is definitely not a product review, and it is a little rough around the edges! But I thought I would share it anyway and see what the response is like. In the future I would like to include a lot more video content on the site, including video reviews. So keep an eye out in the near future.
