Yachting Journal

Making its debut at the Gold Coast International Marine Expo, the BRIG Navigator 700 is seven meters of versatility and durability, with room for 11 people in comfort – 12 in the twin engine version.

Brand new to the Navigator series, the N700 with its Deep-V hull boasts a capacity of 1,800kg, while weighing just 700kg on its own.

The Navigator series slots between the Falcon and the Eagle series and is a “cross-over” concept that delivers the pinnacle of stability and safety for all kinds of usage. From yacht tender to a sensational day boat guaranteed to turn heads, the N700 is as glamorous as it is practical.

A step up from previous models, the N700 has a beam of 2.8-meters and all the features BRIG has become renowned for, plus a few more innovations.

Included in the vessel's design are numerous safety features such as its solid fibreglass hull construction, anti-skid deck surface, 58cm diameter tubes made of superior Hypalon material and the option of black or white body.

Those seeking the thrill of performance will be satisfied with the maximum power of either single 225hp engine or twin engine option, and a 340L fuel tank.

The N700 has a self-draining floor, full width rear seat with storage, double helm with additional cushion and stainless steel arch with navigation lights and tow point for skiing and other towable toys.

“As well as being brand new and the biggest in the Navigator Series, the N700 is a big boat for your money,” said Neil Webster, distributor for BRIG in Australia. “The N700 will appeal to a lot of people – for a luxury yacht as a tender, for anglers, skiers, families looking for a day boat. It boasts a functional design, it’s roomy and has high carrying capacity – 11 is a lot of people in a 7-metre boat.”

The usual ‘optional extras’ come as standard with N700 – bimini, Sunbrella seat cushions, windscreen grab rail and built in davit lifting points.

The N700 can be towed for ultimate convenience and low-maintenance storage.

Like all BRIG RIBs, the N700 is tough and resilient, standing up to the harsh UV exposure of our climate.

The first of the BRIG N700s will be emblazoned with BRIG branding and doing duty as the official start boat for the Australian Offshore Superboat Championship at the Hervey Bay race meet from 30 November.

Sirocco Marine offers BRIG N700 with trailer and engine packages starting from $90,000.
