Sail-World.com : Brig hits the sweet spot with the new 580

Brig hits the sweet spot with the new 580

Look on any waterway and you’ll see the heaviest traffic is in the 17-19 foot (5-6 metre) range. Craft of this size are big enough to serve as a family runabouts, fishing craft or ski boats, yet still easy enough to tow behind a typical family car.
So when we hear that Europe’s leading inflatable boat manufacturer has built a model that sits right in the middle of this popular category, it’s worth taking notice.

The new model is the Eagle 580 which, as the name suggests, spans 5.8 metres. Brig has designed it with the help of decades of leadership in the field and has incorporated some category-leading innovations into this exciting newcomer.

At a glance, the most obvious feature is the T bar ski pole which not only serves its purpose for waterskiing and wakeboarding, it also adds to the style complementing the sleek sporty design cues. Such styling distinguishes it from even the most recent Brig models.

To view the Brig Eagle 580 on the water, it is undeniably a contemporary boat with its bold, angular design reflecting modern styling trends. This more dynamic exterior look is complemented by more of the practical features you need. It boasts all the sensible inclusions of the larger Brig 645 and 780 models in a crowd pleasing package. The Brig 580 will be presented in a range of striking colours including red, white, blue and black.

The new model will be unveiled in Mandurah. -  Harbourside Media   Click Here to view large photo


The Australian agents Sirocco Marine recommend an 115hp outboard engine to push it along, to deliver exceptional performance with superb comfort and control. Which means in the energy-conscious new millennium, the Brig 580 gives you all the fun you want, all the features you need, without the heavy fuel penalty.

In addition, being a rigid inflatable, you won’t need a gas guzzling car to tow it around so it will be the perfect multi purpose runabout. You could say it’s the not too heavy, not too light craft that will appeal to a wide range of people who want to get back to the pure, uncompromised fun of boating.

Sirocco Marine has chosen the Mandurah Boat Show for the worldwide launch of the Brig 580. This is such an important launch for the brand that top management from Brig in Europe will be turning up specially for the occasion. To view it for the first time, head for Sirocco Marine display at Stand 60, in front of the Mandurah Offshore Fishing Club at the Mandurah Boat Show.
