Markham whaler 4.9


Fishseeker4.0

Recommended Posts

G'day guys. 

 

Looking to upgrade my 4.0m fishseeker as we have moved south and it wont cut it for the family in JB... In my opinion anyway. 

I have seen a 4.9 Markham whaler for sale that has sparked my interest. I love the multi hull idea for stability and safety of 2 motors... Won't like the service fee tho.

There isn't alot online regarding these. Does anyone have any feed back or pros/cons. I come from a single hull background cutting my teeth in a seafarer Viking. 

We are a family of 3 with an 18 months old who loves the water. I fish by myself alot and like to head outside when I can.. would this boat suit JB when it blows up or outside to chase reds? 

 

Look forward to hearing some feedback or stories. 

Tight lines.

Not a huge fan myself, but there's lots of them around, and I have seen plenty of them out pretty wide in choppy conditions. They seem to go OK, be way softer ride than the Viking.

Never really been a fan of Whalers in general, but as I said, it would be a giant step up from the Viking.
