2 x Yellowfin 7600 Southerner + Yamaha F250 4-Stroke with all the fruit + workshop fitout

We have not one, but two Yellowfin 7600 Southerns going through the workshop this week which are absolutely kitted out with the best electronics on the market. What absolute weapons these packages are, especially designed by some very experienced owners who have owned many boats throughout their life.

Starting at the front is the Quintrex Catch & Release trailer bracket which makes drive on trailering a breeze, and they’re only worth a few hundred bucks. There’s a drum winch up the front with a SARCA Anchor, a high quality specially designed anchor which has the ability to de-snag itself.

Under the boat is the Quintrex Aluminium I-Beam braked trailer which should last the life of the boat.

At the back is the very loved Yamaha F250 4-Stroke which is an absolute beast on this boat. A Yamaha F225 pushes this boat very well, so a F250 is more than enough, even though this boat has a maximum HP of 300.

A boat of this size should have trimtabs which are on this boat. Also right at the back are two enormous transducers which connect to some top of the range navigation and sonar systems.

The Yellowfin 7600 Southerner comes standard with a 235L fuel tank with the option of replacing the kill tank with a second fuel tank, giving you 300L total fuel capacity, which is a HUGE amount of fuel.

This Yellowfin has been painted a nice dark grey, which looks fantastic and isn’t a reflective paint – quiet an important little tip with these larger plate boats.

As this is a serious boat for a serious fisherman, there are also Outriggers installed which the boys in the workshop had no issues installing.

Now for the juicey part, electronics. As mentioned the owner of this boat is a very experienced boater and fisherman and knows what kind of electronics compliment this boat. He’s gone with SIMRAD for Navigation and Sonar/Imaging. SIMRAD have a fantastic radar system with an unbelievable 36 nautical mile radius. That kind of capacity will give you the confidence to stay safe…and know where all the other boats are fishing! Paired with the sonar is another 12″ screen for the sounder.

The Yamaha 6YC gauge is feature packed and tackles the task of keeping up with the rest of this boat with ease. All of the switch panels and other essential electronics such as the VHF radio, etc are also top of the range. A nifty little addition is toggle spotlights mounted on top which are controllable with a little switch by the drivers seat. Very cool!

The cabin is large and comfortable with well thoughtout furniture and storage.

Brisbane Yamaha are the largest Yellowfin dealers. We sell heaps of them. If you are a serious offshore plate boat buyer, don’t even bother with the customer ‘back yarder’ plate boat, invest in the proven, tried and tested Yellowfin range of boats, backed by Telwater, the manufacturer of Quintrex.

The team at Brisbane Yamaha are more experienced and fit out more boats and motors than anyone in Australia. The boys in the workshop do more than anyone else in the industry, so you can rest easy knowing everything on your boat is being done to the highest standard. This is the Brisbane Yamaha difference!

About Gary Brown

I have been fishing from a very early age (around # to 4) in the estuaries from Qld to Victoria for bream, whiting, mullet, flathead, leatherjackets, john dory and luderick. Having owned my first boat at 12, I was able to fish further afield in many different estuaries up and down the NSW coast with my dad. In my early teens I started to fish from the beach for bream, whiting, tailor and salmon and then progressed onto the rocks for bream, trevally, tailor, salmon, drummer, luderick and snapper. I also targeted snapper, morwong, other reef species off shore, plus a variety of tuna. In his teens Gary brought his first boat and started fish out to sea on the south coast of NSW where he could chase snapper, tuna, morwong, pinkies, leatherjackets, mulloway, bonito and many other fish species. Over the past 22 years I have been teaching many anglers how to improve their fishing ability in my “How, Where, When and Why to Fish” classes throughout tackle shops in Sydney. In 2002 I had my first book published (Fishing Sydney’s Waterways) by AFN and it has been revised 3 times. Since then I have now had 4 more books published: 2005 Beach and Rock Fishing Australia. 2010 Fishing guide to South of Sydney. 2011 How to catch Australia’s Favourite Saltwater Fish. 2013 Land based Fishing GUIDE FOR Sydney Harbour. I have also produced along with Scotty Lyons 2 dvd’s; A Day on the Bay and Port Hacking – The Jewel of the South. Over the past 11 years I have successfully competed in a number of bream tournaments. Ranging from ABT, BETS and the Southern Bream Series. I am currently sponsored by the following companies: Pure Fishing/Pflueger/Shakespeare now for 22 years as one of their Pro Anglers. Australian Fishing Network (AFN) Tackle Tactics. Strike pro.
