2011 530 Pilothouse

Pilothouse was developed with consideration and insight into the needs and desires of boat users. As a result, every Pilothouse offers you the freedom to get out and to the fish quickly and safely.

Whether you’re after space and comfort for a social weekend away, or the practical touch of a live bait well equipped with seawater circulation, the Pilothouse is flexible enough to deliver just what you need.

Furthermore, all that practical ability is underpinned by the kind of structural integrity that will give you lasting enjoyment. Combined with a choice of powerful, reliable engines, a Pilothouse offers real peace of mind.

Key Features:

The 530 Pilothouse is paradise for any keen fisherman. Maximum space and light is created by the perfect combination of the open-backed cabin with a unique skylight. And if you want to make a great day’s fishing really last there’s a lockable cabin forwards with room for overnighting.

A slightly smaller boat doesn’t mean safety is compromised. In fact it’s quite the opposite with everything you’d expect on board to put you at ease out on the water, from clear navigation lights for signalling to a windscreen wiper to maintain visibility, a robust swim ladder and sturdy grab rails for safe, easy access to the bow. There’s also a bilge pump as standard.

You’ll always feel comfortable on board the 530 Pilothouse with the spacious, light and airy cabin, easy access around the boat and, when it’s time to really unwind, a bright cabin with double V-berths for a well earned rest.

The 530 Pilothouse is versatile through and through. Right from the folding co-pilot’s seat that creates more space to the picnic table that will see you through the day, from a hearty breakfast to an evening meal savouring the day’s catch and the best moments.

Considered storage throughout the boat is there to make every trip easy and enjoyable. A well-placed locker keeps the anchor out of harms way, while the bow roller means you can lower and raise the anchor without scratching the deck or hull. And naturally there are holders for your fishing rods.
