Saggers Marine proudly represents Herley Boats exclusively for Western Australia!
The Herley Elite 8 is the perfect choice for those who want a premium powerboat that is manageable in size. This boat is the downsized version of the highly popular Elite 9 model. The Elite 8 has the same features and layout as the Elite 8 Captain except for one difference - the Elite 8 has the patented aft angled windshield. The Elite range is highly customizable to allow clients to meet specific needs and design requirements.
The Herley Elite 8 is a premium plate aluminium powerboat built to withstand the toughest conditions at sea. Its sharp entrance plumb bow provides exceptional seakeeping abilities while its shallow deadrise stern offers stability at rest, both of which ensure a safe and comfortable ride on the open water. The powerboat features a class-leading strength and weight distribution that includes a forward collision bulkhead and a sealed self-draining cockpit. The Elite 8 offers an unparalleled long-range fishing platform with fuel tank options that provide ranges of over 700kms. Additionally with single and twin petrol outboard options, the Elite 8 can reach speeds of over 40 knots while joystick-controlled precision vessel movement makes for smooth handling. The Herley Elite 8 also boasts a luxurious finish with bespoke outfitting options available to suit individual needs and design requirements. With its superior engineering, exceptional performance and premium features, the Herley Elite 8 is the ultimate choice for serious boaters who demand the best.
The Herley Elite 8 powerboat provides ultimate comfort and relaxation in the cockpit. It's a luxury vessel designed to provide an exceptional cruising and overnighting experience, featuring a slide-out galley with hot and cold water, a gas hob, and a stone countertop including the convenience of a slide-out Icey Teck cooler, a hot and cold transom shower, and an optional private forward electric head. The Herley Elite 8 also has unparalleled fishability with its unique Herley bait board, complete with cupholders, rod holders, tackle draw, defrost bin, and ample cutting room while the bait tank is located on the port side, featuring a slosh divider, light, viewing window and a Plastek tackle draw on the starboard side.
The luxurious interior finish of the Herley Elite 8 is a perfect blend of functionality and elegance as it allows the option to choose between an open or enclosed wheelhouse or a lockable forward cabin. Every inch of the interior has been built and designed to the highest standards to ensure maximum comfort and relaxation starting with the helm area which features custom bucket seats on air ride adjustable pedestals, with a rear two-person bench seat that can flip to face forward or aft, complete with comfortable arm and footrests. The fold-out teak table allows for indoor dining while the helm itself is reminiscent of classic American game fishing boats, trimmed in highly polished timber, with soft head and side liners framing large, opening side windows and front windscreen. Secure storage is not a problem as there are ample options for cubbies in the side pockets, designated rod storage, and slide-out storage under the captain and co-pilot seats, and under the floor.
