On arrival at the ramp, the first thing that caught my eye was the outstanding graphics and finish on the craft that was ready for scrutiny.
efore commencing a detailed tour and brief of the many special features, the next thing that stands out is the quality of workmanship on display all over the PURKRAFT-550, by Hall Marine Design, exhibited by the visible welding all around and tidy branding machined into each cleat.
Every detail exclaims quality and passion.
I could spend time expounding on the impressive amount of space saving innovations that have been masterfully placed in nearly every usable square inch of these craft, but that would really detract from the main feature itself.
Before I go into that, I think it’s only fair to mention some of the unique items that attracted me to the PUREKRAFT-550 centre console.
Consider the modular features that can be swapped out to transform a “game fishing” set up into a “dive vessel” set up, to a family day out or water sports with mates.
There’s a folding t-top with inbuilt speakers and lights, streamline low profile windlass and tidy anchor well with easy access hatch, and a front casting deck that offers multiple fishing platforms around the vessel.
Even with the sneaky slide-away, out-of-sight dive ladder, multipurpose reversible driver’s seat and lunch table the PUREKRAFT-550 is thrust ahead of its time by a designer and team that are committed to providing clients with a craft that will go the distance.
While I was talking with Jarrod Hall, it was easy to see that the only thing that came close to the level of passion he has around creating exquisite quality and adaptable vessels, is his frustration around some of the “off the shelf” options that are available.
Jarrod and his team tirelessly invest time and energy into researching applicable issues such as stability, loading and safety in real-time.
That data is fed into specialist software to ensure that regular calibrations provide up-to-date information on demand for the design team.
This offers unique value for the sophisticated boat owner who seeks personalised boating class.
Clearly the main feature of Hall Marine Design is not just the PUREKRAFT-550 - it’s the team and their ethos around safe and durable boating.
Offering customised and pre-set turnkey packages, Hall Marine Design deliver top of the range construction, quality and resilience that you need to see for yourself.
