Brig’s new Eagle 650 set to soar even higher in Sydney

by Harbourside Media on 17 Jul 2012
Brig 650 Sirocco Marine
The current model Brig Eagle 645 has been a huge success worldwide especially with quality-conscious Mediterranean boaters. So the designers at Brig have decided to make it even better and have created the new Brig Eagle 650.

Never ones to stick to the adage 'if it ain’t broke don’t fix it', the Brig designers have incorporated a number of significant improvements and innovations. Every moulding above the waterline is all new resulting in a cutting-edge new model with sharper lines and greater visual impact.

They’ve added more surface area to the dash to accommodate navigation instruments including the very latest big screen GPS units.

For easy entry and exit there are now larger steps either side of the engine which will allow a wider boarding ladder to be fitted. Once aboard, the seating has been updated for better comfort and support, and legroom increased for backseat passengers. The Brig designers have also been more generous in their use of stainless steel ensuring more functionality and durability.

In fact, as you look closely at the new Brig Eagle 650, you’ll find a wealth of improvements which will keep this spacious runabout at the forefront of Rigid Inflatable Boat design throughout 2012 and beyond.

You can see this exciting new model up close at the Sydney International Boat Show from August 2-6 at Darling Harbour. This worldwide launch of the new 650 is so significant that the Brig management team is jetting over from Europe especially for the occasion. So head straight for the back of Hall 5, stand 503, to get the low down on the high-flying new Eagle 650.

Length 6.5m
