2011 500 Pilothouse

Pilothouse was developed with consideration and insight into the needs and desires of boat users. As a result, every Pilothouse offers you the freedom to get out and to the fish quickly and safely.

Whether you’re after space and comfort for a social weekend away, or the practical touch of a live bait well equipped with seawater circulation, the Pilothouse is flexible enough to deliver just what you need.

Furthermore, all that practical ability is underpinned by the kind of structural integrity that will give you lasting enjoyment. Combined with a choice of powerful, reliable engines, a Pilothouse offers real peace of mind.

Key Features:

Welcome to the compact boat for fishermen that’s big on versatility, comfort and practicality. Clever design means you can have the best of both worlds thanks to an offset cabin that gives you more room sheltered from the weather when you need it without sacrificing a secure portside passageway forward. So the 500 Pilothouse might be compact, but it thinks big.

With clear navigation lights for highly visible signalling, a windscreen wiper to maintain good visibility, a sturdy swim ladder to make getting in and out of the water safe and easy, a bilge pump as standard and hydraulic steering for smooth, fast yet safe driving, this is a boat that’s built totally around your peace of mind.

Time to escape and unwind. You’ve got all you need to take it easy, from all the space you want on deck to a roomy fishing cockpit and a bright offset cabin complete with berths for when a day of fishing turns into a whole weekend of fun and pursuit.

The 500 Pilothouse is the perfect fishing vessel combining useful space to get around the boat with room to shelter from the elements and all the practicality, comfort and safety you need to make your fishing trip really relaxing and worry-free.

The 500 Pilothouse boat has far more space and storage than you’d usually expect on a boat of this size. There’s storage throughout the boat, including holders for those all-important fishing rods, an anchor locker to keep it safely out of the way plus a bow roller for lowering and raising the anchor.
