A fantastic example of the popular Merry Fisher 805.
“Baloo” was bought as an upgrade to the Merry Fisher 625 that we had previously as having a young family meant my previous fishing boat was getting little use. Baloo was perfect for us and has done us proud for 200+ hours of cruising, fishing and exploring on weekends away. She comfortably sleeps the four of us although now we feel that we would like a little more room (As the children are getting bigger) so are looking at moving up the ladder again!
Baloo was originally a demo boat and as such has all the extra’s you could imagine, this is on top of the already high spec of this model. Extra’s include Bowthruster, Radar, Fish Finder and Depth Sounder, GPS Plotter, Trim Tab’s, Full aft closing kit, Sun blind, Eberspacher heating system, 2 anchors (one with 100m rope, the other with 35m chain on electric windlass), Digital TV ariel with adjustable gain control, pilot’s mid cleat (which means you can lock in/out single handed!), cockpit option for throttle control, 4 speaker sound system, removeable cockpit table and much more.
As standard (I believe) she came with the cockpit and head shower units, running hot and cold to main galley sink and toilet sink, double gas hob, bilge pumps (Standard spec includes hot water x2, sea toilet, gas hob, cockpit tiller etc….
Baloo has been very reliable and feels safe even in very lumpy seas. Based in Hayling Island we have taken her as far as Brighton to the East and to Weymouth in the West (And everywhere in between!).
When freshly cleaned underneath she will achieve 23 knots but is more comfortable to cruise at 15-18 knots.
at these speeds will average 17-20 litres per hour so very economical for the size of boat!
