Making waves in the alloy boat market, or rather, cutting through them, Innovision boats offers a genuine point of difference with its unique bow design and customised build quality. Take a look at the attention to detail on this particular 585, just completed for a discerning customer who wanted everything fully loaded. There are some unique and very nice details and features on this boat. From rear deck winch, to retractable rod leashes, there’s not much more you could wish for on a mid-sized alloy rig.

The 585 sits in the mid-range for Innovision, and should be on your list of boats to look at if a stable, smooth riding platform, with lots of fishing space, is what you want.
