Mercury 470 Heavy Duty

Mercury 470 Heavy Duty

These are boats that can carry a lot of people and gear....the largest model accomodating up to 10 adults!* They feature pliable tubes and a low freeboard, making it easier for people to roll off and re-board.* They're built to last too, with specially reinforced fabric and aluminium and fibreglass floors for extra sturdiness in rougher water.* They're also strong enough to take bigger engines, with the largest model able to accommodate up to a 55hp outboard.
