High quality, stabile, comfortable to sit in, more than capable to tackle our fishing environments, spacious (for at least four fishing), modern, reliable, and an ultimate fishing boat. It was these adjectives that dominated my requirements when I was on the search for my future boat and one of Norway’s best boats for fishing.

The boat weighs in at 768kg, has a 160l fuel tank and a top speed of 36 knots. It’s primarily driven by its maximum permitted outboard size of 115hp. Finnish Buster has over 40yrs experience making high quality aluminium boats.
