Went to the boat show Saturday with the sole intention of finding a boat that ticks off most of my boxes.  

Came across the Everyman stand and was more than a little impressed with the boats they had on show. The finish looked excellent and they  seemed like a lot of boat for their sizes and the standard features were  something alot of competitors has as an optional extra.
The 635ht got a good write up in the trader boat test.
So if anyone has  got a Everyman boat, whats their thoughts on them.

Hi worksux, sorry cant help with any real expertise on these boats, but  would like to back up your opinion of them, I was most impressed with them! I have spoken to two guys who own them, and they raved about them. Good luck if you are looking!

I haven't been in one, they do look good, my brother said they go very well, he went for a sea trial with a 150 hpdi Yamaha and was very impressed, and they are well made, he works as salesman at cambridge marine, call him to have a chat about it.

Buy it Dave. I'll take you out for 187 bar crossing lessons (and we might do a bit of fishing each time) and you'll be Raglan qualified Wink

You know me Beags, the bar has to be as flat as my first girlfriend  for me to cross it.
Scotty, done the deed and am going for the 6mHT, It won't fit in the garage either but it may if i go from the roller door to a sectional door,  Just...... maybe.

Don't worry Dave, we can pick the flat days. Other days we'll take my boat.

Choose your next post words very carefully... MILESTONE:

Be keen to hear how they go in the rough with a 15deg deadrise. Looks like they claim that you don't need a deep V to get good heavy weather performance, and if true they have found one of boatings 'holy grails'. Would be great to line one up against one of the deep V equivalents on a rough day to get a real comparison and find out what their secret is in making a plate alloy hull  that is superior to the rest.

hi dave
I have been on an everyman boat and I can tell you its the most stable boat I have come across

Posted By: CRAYS

The everyman 635 is an extremely versitile boat making it the ideal choice for families, it is roomy enough for a day's fishing with the whole family, and if the weather or sea turns rough it is a safe boat that handles well in adverse conditions. 
 With a teenage family it is nimble enough to have many hours of fun water skiing and biscuiting.
It is a boat that is easily handled into and out of the water by just two people.
I have owned an Everyman 635 boat for the last 18 months now and have already done 130 hours most of these have been at sea on the west coast out of Mokau.
Prior to this boat I have owned two others similar in size and I have been on many different types of boats, whether for fishing or diving.  I took a punt on buying the Everyman 635 boat, not knowing how it would perform due to it being such a new brand of boat on the market, in the short time I have owned this boat it has exceeded my expectations.  I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.
In my conclusion I have been in and around many boats for I have a love for the sea,  The Everyman boat is very well made which handles extremely well no matter what the conditions are.
Enjoy the long weekend

Nice post Jane, welcome to the site.

Thanks for that Jane, Like you I have a little nervousness on buying a newish brand but think, hell everyone has to has to start some where. Couple of reasons I have gone with the 6m HT, firstly I have had a fairly good look at the boat over the last couple of boat shows and liked what I saw, secondly, They are localy made so went to the factory and had a yak with the Nigel the guy who is building it, Good fella, ran over all the plans with me and had no worries when i asked if he could leave the HT off untill after a mate of mine  paints the sides. Im in the States at the moment but as soon as I get back I will be down the shop checking its progress.

With Shona and Jane both speaking highly of their new boats perhaps they should be renamed "Everywoman"

Remember it's not the number of breaths you take that is important in life, but rather the number of times that life takes your breath away.

How about a couple of pic to add to the what's ya rig topic from those with their new Everyman.

Better a Slackline that goes Tight than a Tightline that Goes Snap.

Had another great day out on the water in our everyman 635 not many fish but the boat goes so well it didn't matter.  Perfect for divers wide sides great for dropping of so easy to drive and goes like a rocket the 150 four stroke yamaha we got on the back so quiet we sometimes forget it's going when it is in neutral.  This boat gets the thumbs up from me and a triple A!!!!!!! rating recommendTongue

The Everyman Boat I have looked at seems to have a very small vee for a Scott Robson Design??

Don't think the Everyman is a Scott Robson design, is it? 

Posted By: Reelimin
Date Posted: 05 Sep 2010 at 4:26am
If they are not a Scott Robson then they must be by Kevin hall? Kevin is the only other designer that comes close to Scott Robson

Regardless of who designed the Everyman boat (check the tradeaboat site for details) I agree with you reelimin that they have relatively flat bottoms. I think that with a stiff plate hull and a reasonably pointy nose they will be OK in a moderate chop, but, there is no magic formula, a 15 degree deadrise will not make for a softriding hull.

Posted By: Reelimin

I have had a look at the tradeaboat articles also the one paper magazine test and none of them mention who the designer is. So I can only presume it is Kevin Hall. He is a wierd ******* to deal with and keeps a low profile behind the scenes. Yes you are correct there seems to be no majic formula for deep vee against stability at rest.

Always difficult to get a handle on 'what's a good boat?' As we have seen above, anyone who has just shelled out huge dosh is likely to be biased, the magazine articles are next to useless and are effectively PR releases from the boatmakers, I mean, how often have you read the lines: "it was a beautiful day on the Waitamata with flat seas... etc etc,  whats the point? When i questioned Propeller magazine when they described the Stabi 589 as a 'soft rider' I was told that you can't campare a boat like this with a deep v glass boat!!! well hello, what were they comparing it with? a barn door? In fact i'd bet if you stuck a few rod holders and a motor on a bathtub (and spent enough money on advertising) they'd take it out on a flat day and call it a 'soft riding hull' - and yes, people would buy them and say they are great. It would even win innovation awards at the boatshow "it's great, the bung is on the inside",
