Not heard about the new Raymarine Element yet? I strongly suggest that you continue reading this article if you’re a passionate Freshwater / Estuary fisherman because this is going to excite you!
In 2018 Northside Marine was crowned the Raymarine Queensland Dealer of the year due to our sales over that period. Being the biggest Raymarine Queensland dealer, this gave us the opportunity to do some pre-release testing on the New Raymarine Element model.
Before I jump further into the details of our testing and the results, I’ll quickly run through what the Raymarine Element is- and where it sits on the pecking order.
Raymarine has produced this New Element Model with a 7inch, 9inch and 12inch screen. The Element isn’t just a new model replacing the market proven dragonfly series, but a revolution in technical advancements suited within a budget of a mid-range unit, with high quality improvements.
*Large sized Saratoga
*Fallen Tree, very clear images of each induvial branch with some small bait schools hanging around it*
One of the biggest stand-outs for us is the all new HyperVison imaging, this is running at a massive 1.2megahertz (with the option of 350 kHz as well) which gives you an insanely clear and crisp image in shallow water. As stated previously, this unit is more recognized as a shallow water sounder (up to 30m with 1.2kHZ Down/Side Scan) due to running at such a High Frequency). It will however give you some absolutely amazing sonar images like these that we captured during our water testing period chasing Bass and Saratoga in North Pine Dam (Brisbane);
Overall, the New Raymarine Element exceeded our expectations with the quality of images it produced. Starting at $1599 RRP for the 7’, it is one that must be looked at for anyone who is chasing a New GPS/FishFinder Sounder combo.
If you have any questions about this unit, we have been lucky enough to test and use it so feel free to give us a call today on 3265 8016.

Heard about the new Lowrance HDS Live ? We are super excited for it, So much so, we thought might give you our thoughts on the new product and the option to secure one first by Pre-Ordering !
Things we like..
Live Sonar C-Map Genesis Charting - I'm sure most of you have all heard of Insight Genesis or C-Map Genesis Before. right? Well if you have been living out of Lowrance World the last 3-4 years, basically what is does is turns your sonar readings and saves them onto an SD card, allowing you to upload the information online and create your very own charts ( which are by far the most accurate and detailed around) . Well, what C-map Genesis Live does is creates your own maps from your sonar and displays it live in real time. It also saves data internally to your unit, so no need to wait until you get home to start making magic.
Smartphone integration – Maybe not for everyone, but the option to Bluetooth your phone to your new HDS live, which allows you to view, reply and create text messages while your phone is stored away.
Quad Core Processors - Yes that's right! From Dual to Quad, the fastest just got faster!
LiveSight View - This gives you the option with an additional transducer to view your sonar in real time. Can see this being awesome for those serious lure fisherman who fish structure regularly with electric motors.
Active Imaging 3-1 transducer - This will replace the Totalscreen transducer and give you higher detail imaging like that of the 3D Module on Structure Scan at a very attractive price point.
If you would like to Pre-Order, there will only be limited stock for the first shipment, so get in fast!

WHITTLEY CELEBRATES 65 YEARS OF AUSTRALIAN BOAT BUILDING WITH THE RELEASE OF TWO CRUISER EDITION FLEETMASTER PACKAGES AT THE 2018 MELBOURNE BOAT SHOW.
This year Whittley Marine is celebrating 65 years of building high-quality, family fishing fiberglass boats in Australia. To mark this milestone Whittley Marine
is releasing two limited edition heritage cruisers; the Fleetmaster 23 & Fleetmaster 26. These new cruisers will be on display at stand #D4 at the Melbourne Boat Show, from the 28th June to the 1st July at the Melbourne Convention Centre.The Whittley Company & Family has built high quality boats since 1953. Brothers Jim and Ossie Whittley built a bond wood boat for a friend in Victoria’s northern suburbs, beginning a legacy that has lasted over 65 years. More than 400 bond wood cruisers were built in the 1950s and 60s before the company became one of the pioneers of fibreglass boat
building in Australia. Today Whittley prides itself as one of Australia’s premiere boat builders, employing more than 50 people and producing some of Australia’s highest quality and best value fiberglass boat packages.
Whittley Marine Managing Director, Neville Whittley said, “The Whittley company has always been known as a boating family, building high quality family boats for Australians. The Fleetmaster model name is well known being one of the most popular sports cruiser models, since fiberglass boat building was introduced to the company. The Melbourne Boat Show is Whittley’s hometown boat show, so it’s the perfect time to release these new model packages. We encourage patrons to come and help celebrate Whittley’s 65 year birthday and experience the Whittley
range of quality boats, built right here in Victoria.”
The new Fleetmaster 23 soft top sports cruiser has an overall length of 7.6 meters. Retaining all the classic Whittley hallmarks, with a standard double berth, fridge, sink, stove and toilet, along with a large moulded rear platform, the Fleetmaster 23 is ideal for water sports, extended weekend living, fishing or cruising. The hull features a computer designed variable deadrise for the perfect balance between ride and stability. Packaged with a high quality Mackay Trailer, Volvo Penta V6 200 SX and a long list of standard equipment, the soft top sports Fleetmaster 23 BMT package is available from MRRP of $99,990*.
The hard top Fleetmaster 26, features a stylish full length hard top and large sliding sunroof ideal for Australia’s unique alfresco style boating. It has
an overall length of 8.5 meters and remains under the legally trailerable beam of 2.5 meters. The large cabin features a stand up head and well-appointed galley, with accommodation for four adults and a sliding cabin door for privacy. If you have dreamed of owning a family sized weekender but mooring, antifouling and constant maintenance are not on your agenda then the Fleetmaster 26 could be your passport to a lifetime of memories! The larger hard top model, the Fleetmaster 26 BMT package, with a Mackay Trailer & Volvo V6 200 SX is available from MRRP of $149,990*. It represents the very best value in the local trailerable cruiser boat market.
“The two new Fleetmaster models are designed specifically for local Australian boat buyers. They offer great value with a high quality hull, motor and trailer package and are available for a limited time only. They will be on display at the Melbourne Boat Show, as well as through the Authorized Whittley dealer network. Enjoy the savings (with discounts of more than $25,000). It is a fantastic time to consider the Whittley boating lifestyle and enjoy the savings.” Mr Whittley added.
The Fleetmaster models remain under the legal trailer towing width of 2.5 meters, avoiding the cumbersome over width towing regulations in each state and territory. This includes signage, flags, flashing lights and other restrictions. Whittley also offer a hassle free and easy towing experience with a high quality Mackay trailer. Powering the package is Volvo Penta’s new next generation V6 200, an all aluminum block and fresh water cooled engine, which integrates seamlessly into the boat maximizing usable live aboard space.
Mr Whittley said, “Victoria is a fantastic trailer boat state and there is no better way to create lasting memories than on a new boat with your family. A legally trailerable, live aboard style family boat is the ideal way to explore Victoria’s boating destinations for an extended weekend. You don’t have to stay in the one location, there is so much to explore with your family. The weekend starts the moment you pull out of the driveway.”
