Press Release 23 April 2013
Tristram Marine are proud to announce a Spring release of their all new 701 Offshore. This new model adds an all new hull and deck configuration to Tristram’s unprecedented Offshore range.
As the fourth hardtop in the Tristram line up, the 701 will feature the same unparalleled design features that have set Tristram’s 741, 851 & 881 hardtops as leaders in todays’ trailer boat market.
“We have designed another entirely new boat to suit the modern Kiwi family, fisherman and diver who want the best of quality, design & practicality for enjoying all that New Zealand’s coastlines have to offer” says Tristram Marine Managing Director and Chief Designer Lance Fink.
A seamless fibreglass hardtop with glass screen and roof hatches, standard and optional features for fishing and overnighting, enviable cockpit space and stowage are just some of the practicalities Tristram will offer on their new 701. Engine options will range from 200hp to 300hp, only available in outboard configuration due to performance advantages using lighter machinery, and bigger horsepowers.
As the second model in the Tristram range to be designed by Computer Aided Design (CAD) and cut by Computer Numerical Control (CNC), the 701 will be one of the most accurate and precisely crafted trailer boats in the world. “We are proud to be leaders in the New Zealand market with the use of this technology, and believe our product will be second-to-none in quality, design and craftsmanship as a result” says Lance.
With the addition of the 701 Offshore to the range, Tristram Marine will offer one of New Zealand’s most diverse and all-encompassing ranges with four hardtop, three cabin and three bowrider variants from 5.8 to 9.3 metres in length.
The company has grown from strength to strength since its inception in 1987 and boasts an array of boat of the year, business of the year, and growth awards. All boats are produced in Tristram’s state-of-the-art Waikato-based factory and central distribution centre which incorporates an in-house service centre, trimming department, and New Zealand’s largest under-cover trailer boat showroom.
Tristram Marine look forward to a bright and prosperous future with the backing of one of New Zealand’s most talented and passionate workforce, coupled with many loyal owners, some of who now own their sixth and seventh consecutive Tristrams.
