The Seafarer Vagabond has been reborn

ICONIC Australian fibreglass boat brand Seafarer has lifted the lid on an all-new Vagabond 6.6 and Vagabond 6.6 HT (Hard Top).

The Vagabond 6.6 has been redesigned. The Haines Group (THG) have handcrafted this new model to include the latest equipment and electronics that our customers desire in 2023, while keeping the tradition and DNA of Seafarer that people have always loved from the brand.

Now adding a Hard Top (HT) model to the lineup means the Vagabond is a true offshore boat, providing comfort and protection from all weather conditions. The internals of the hardtop feature moulded speaker boxes, and more space for electronics, radar, and the ability to fit a night vision camera.

The glass windscreen and stainless support frame are made of the highest quality materials and designed in Australia for our conditions.

Masterfully handcrafted in The Haines Group’s Wacol factory, the new Vagabond 6.6 & Vagabond 6.6 HT feature an impressive list of standard features like JL Audio stereo and speakers, Simrad VHF radio, Phender Pro’s, USB chargers, lockable and watertight side box, fully integrated and factory designed wiring harness and a rear switch panel so you can operate the transom features without having to return to the helm. See the website for a full list of inclusions.

With a new larger dash design you have more space for MFD screens. Optioning up your new Vagabond you can now fit in more technology than ever before. We have partnered with Simrad and JL Audio to bring you cutting-edge technology options to ensure everything you want can be included by us at the factory.

Seafarer boats have been made in Australia since 1957 and continue to be respected for their legendary build quality and smooth ride. See the Vagabond 6.6 for the first time at the Good Times Marine stand at this year’s Sydney International Boat Show from 3-6 August at Darling Harbour.

All Seafarer boats from August 2023 onwards including the Vagabond 6.6 will now be constructed with full composite material, meaning that there will no longer be any timber in the construction of the hull or stringer system.

“We feel our Seafarer customers are serious fishing enthusiasts who will appreciate the change in construction material. It will be a point of difference for the brand and shows our ongoing commitment to continue to look for ways to improve our product,” according to The Haines Group.

Full Turnkey Packaging across the Seafarer range
In addition to the new Vagabond launch, The Haines Group are also very excited to announce the entire Seafarer range will now be delivered to their dealer network as full turnkey packaging. Partnering exclusively with Mercury Marine and Yamaha for outboard motors, Dunbier trailers, Simrad electronics and JL Audio sound equipment, “This will ensure our customers receive a product that will provide a factory setup like you won’t find anywhere else”.
