Horizon 515 Northerner SC
The Horizon 515 Northerner Side Console has been in existence for a while now, but it gets better with new upgrades from the Gold Coast manufacturer. The boat is an open console boat that is easy to handle, making it very safe. It comes in various models with consoles on either side of the boat or in the centre, so you have a variety of options to pick from. Models include Tournament Pro competition boat, Easy Fisher budget boats, Stalker lake, Pacific centre consoles, Stryker XPF, etc.
Available in various lengths from 4.15 to 5.4m, the smaller models have an open engine layout, but the large ones have side console and cockpit at the back with a forward casting deck.
The Northerner is equipped with features, equipment, and gears. This includes two removable helm chairs, plastic rod holders, cockpit side pockets, transducer bracket, boarding platform, 110l fuel tank, stern rails and bow, marine carpets, 115-litre icebox, among others.
The complete package of the boat which also includes a single axis Dunbier trailer and a Yamaha 90hp outboard engine cost less than forty thousand. Thus, it is affordable, even if you’re working with a strict budget.
You could also add optional features. For instance, you can get a Yamaha 115hp engine with hydraulic steering, Garmin Echo-Map Plus 95sv GPS/ fish finder, vinyl hull wrap, etc.
The interior of the Northerner 515 has storage lockers that have their lids carpeted to ensure weather protection. The console is moderately sized with an acrylic windscreen, cup holder, storage shelf, and a fascia that can hold a multifunctional electronic display. There is additional space to put marine radio, switch panel, and engine instruments.
