Evolution 552 Gold Series – Australia Best Fishing Boat For The Bay & Blue Water
The design theory behind the Evolution 552 Gold Series becomes obvious when the reels begin to scream and the cockpit action hots up. The huge beam has allowed the Evolution team to create a class–leading 2.10m of internal width at the transom which opens up a huge amount of angling space in the cockpit for a true 5.50m hull.
Unmatched Attention To Detail
Serious attention to detail is reflected in the smooth and uncluttered space of the cockpit. Padded coamings and moulded toe holds on the floor provide anglers support and comfort when the battle starts to draw out, while organising tackle, leaders and baits is also made simple with multiple rear lockers and full–width side pockets.
Designed by Fisherman For Long Sessions Out On The Water
When the crew strike fishing gold, they will appreciate the large and stable fishing platform, multiple stainless steel rod holders and an underfloor fish bin to help maximise the angling session. A closer inspection will also reveal enough room for twin batteries for added security during those extended offshore trips and a room to position a deck wash to tidy up and be ready for the next adventure.
Roomy, Flexible Cabin
Driving the 552 X Series is a smooth and comfortable operation with a fully–moulded windscreen providing excellent visibility from the helm while the dash layout offers plenty of space for mounting the all–important electronics. Robust pedestal boxes with inbuilt storage provide a base for the quality upholstered seats while the 552 Gold also delivers a roomy V–berth forward cabin for shelter and accommodation when needed.
Comfort and Protection
At the helm, the skipper and passenger are treated to fully upholstered bucket seats and a comfortable driving position when seated or standing. The dash layout easily accommodates all the required marine electronics and engine gauges while a fully-moulded windscreen and colour-matched canvas bimini cover offer skipper and passenger protection and comfort.
The flagship feature onboard the 552 X Series is the surprisingly spacious forward cabin with ample room to sit upright on the padded V-berth cushions. For added comfort, optional bunk in-fills create more space to rest in between fishing sessions. Access to the bow is through a side-opening hatch with the Evolution design team also making provision for an optional stress-free winch in the anchor well
Powerful Outboard Options
Powering the 552 X Series is straightforward with a choice of outboard options recommended between 100hp and 150hp. Skippers won’t resist staying out that little bit extra with 150L of underfloor fuel at the ready for those big trips out wide
For a no–nonsense fishing platform, the Evolution 552 X Series is well equipped to handle the riggers of bay and bluewater fishing.
