Besides promised rain, but if the hype … and well – why an extra velocity sy ..?
We were shown the cabin and outdoor variant of the production model, “the Grizzly 580”, made in a single package. That version to cabin “Grizzly 580R” and was paid attention to the basics tion.

But let’s look at the boat from the standpoint of “what can she do?” After all, Lod ki buy not only to demon strate their berth …
We test was carried out on whether the fashion “Grizzly 580R”, equipped with a spring 4 stroke “Suzuki 90”. To begin with, as it should be, we appreciated ostoy ity boats.

Getting the boat Duration elk on the move. Acceleration … planing for a 5-6 (two on board, fuel 75%). The trim is minimal and the review of the course is absolutely not prevent. In calm water the highest average velocity (the flow and against) at 5500 rev / min. It was 63.2 km / h. Then I thought, I wonder what will be the speed of the motor under the maximum recom mended that the power of 150 hp? (And I remember that grizzly bears can be frisky, horses.)
The boat is stable on course and is not inclined to the porpoise, on the steering wheel Powo company responds to the CCT, but there is no lurching. When entering a corner, even at maximum soon STI does not slip. When fully relaying from side to side the steering wheel turns with equal ease, and the boat reacts appropriately. Cascade maneuvers from normal circulation (at a speed of 17-18 kt its diameter at approximately 8 blocks) to the “eights” and “snakes”, the boat is doing easily, without much loss of speed and excessive tion roll.
At the counter a wave of 0.5 m is mani- fested quite deep V hull (19 ° transom); and yet when it launches a small weight is not enough, at a decent speed bumps are felt body. But the high cheekbone and cue board work effectively from Bavly us from splashing.

New “Grizzly 580R” proved to be safe, fast, maneuverable boat tion. It is well suited for family holidays, sport and fishing. In this case, if the manufacturer will be able to stand smiling at a reasonable price policy, the model can be El Popular tion and the buyer will vote for it … pocketbooks.
I assume that this boat CCA bai mission. Using stacks for us as a base rod pyro technical charges, “Grizzly 580R” can arrange a fireworks display, for example, on the occasion of the opening of navigation. And then it will be clear that this is not the Islands se “bear”, and the swallow, which brings long-awaited spring and CNI Mast lock with the sea.
In general, I advise you to look at this boat.
