JCM is proud to offer the discerning boat buyer and for that case a new boat buyer this 18 hour old, heavily optioned Arvor 805 Sportsfish.
Delivered new in October 2021, this 7 month old, 300Hp powered Verado AMS Mercury package is turn key and ready to go. (Trailer is not included)
With a multitude of both factory and JCM upgrades fitted, this makes for a tremendous and very capable offshore fishing boat, yet is also just as much at home, anchored in a sheltered bay providing a stable and family friendly platform for social boating.
As the photos depict, room and space abound throughout the boat from bow to stern and internally. With 3 sliding access doors to the wheelhouse, wide and deep sided passageways on both port and starboard sides that make it simple to access the bow where there is a brilliant seating system for when at anchor and or to check the ground tackle.
Each of the doors is lockable for security when not in use and provides ample light and ventilation for the Qld climate. Inside the wheelhouse, a large overhead sliding hatch allows more light and when opened plenty of fresh air and we like how the design incorporates further air ventilation when in storage via the dual roof vents between the cockpit and cabin roof.
The cabin provides comfortable seating for 3 adults and the two pedestals feature slide/up and down as well as bolsters for additional comfort. At the helm you are the master of your destiny with dual screen Simrad display units (a third is in the cockpit) that also integrate with the Fusion 4 speaker Bluetooth stereo system and engine management system.
Steering is very light and direct via the Mercury Verado power assisted steering system and I like how the steering wheel can also be adjusted up and down for comfort when steering in the standing position or seated. Comfortable footrests are also cleverly incorporated. This Motor has the DTS system, meaning no clunky gear shift and cables, the gear shift is via the Digital Throttle Shift feature that is a pleasure to use.
The helm also houses the Bow thruster controls, Simrad VHF radio, roof top Spotlight controls, Mercury Smart Craft gauges and the Mercury Active Trim system that takes the guesswork out of trimming the motor resulting in better fuel economy and ride comfort. Seriously, a brilliant set up / easy to use and makes for better boating.
Moving down into the cabin, a large offset cushioned bed will provide respite for two adults cosily as this hull has been optioned with the enclosed head. Featuring an electric flush toilet that includes a holding tank, sink with pressurised freshwater, ventilation window and privacy bi-fold door as pictured. Under the cushioned bunks, ample storage is provided for additional items seldomly used.
The cockpit… well this is the either the ultimate battle station for the serious sports angler or a large, high sided ample volume, social area for seating, eating and having some fun in the sun. As pictured, 2 fold away quality stainless steel framed seats recess neatly and a large dining table can be quickly installed. Shade can be provided by the retractable pull-out sun awning or pushed back away when fishing. After a swim, reboarding is easy via the stainless steel, telescopic 4 rung boarding ladder and both port and starboard swim platforms have been optioned on this 805 along with the freshwater transom shower. Boarding gates both port and starboard help keep the young ones aboard and we just love the starboard mid ship side door…. When along side a dock, its simply som easy to step aboard through this side door.
If fishing is your go to, well scroll through the pictures of the cockpit! A third Simrad NSS7EVO3 sounder is installed, 2 underfloor kill tanks, one is plumbed and can be used as a large live well, a plumbed recirculation live bait well is also installed under the quality, JCM custom designed and Australian made fishing table that includes 5 rod holders. Saltwater deck wash, self-draining decks, padded gunwales and stainless steel foot holds along with gunnel mounted rod holders for the heavier rods and a huge underfloor storage hold for excess gear are some of the excellent fishing features aboard. #allaboutfishing
