Edencraft have been building tough, commercial–grade boats for over 30 years. As a testament to the build quality many early models still work the Australian coast as commercial operators. Second-hand models fetch high prices – considerably more than other models from the same era.
Today Edencraft boats are built with the same unflinching commitment to quality, blending time-honored hull design with modern construction techniques. The original designs have been adapted for modern applications, with wide gunwales, modified helms, dive-doors, wave-breakers, composite materials and transom/pod set ups for the latest 4-stroke and twin engine technology.
The model range includes the legendary 233 Formula (Edencraft has been reproducing the 233 for longer than anyone else in Australia), as well as the timeless six-metre Offshore and the baby battleship of the fleet – the 565.
233 Formula Classic
The design of the legendary 233 Formula hasn’t changed
much, however the structural integrity has. The original
Formulas were built for speed with sterndrives but today’s
owners demand greater strength, extra deck space and
twin engine fit-ups.
Edencraft has added these features to the Formula along
with further enhancements including a newly designed top
deck, larger bunk, hinged dive-door and one-piece helm
capable of holding either 2 x 12-inch screens or a single
233 Formula Platinum
The golden child in our fleet… The brand new 233 Formula Platinum. Don’t be fooled everything below the gunwales is the same as the tried and tested 233 Formula Classic, a boat that can truly handle anything mother nature has on offer. Everything above the gunwales is new in this weapon. There’s more storage, larger pockets, helm configuration with a moulded dash to fit modern electronics, a new windscreen, fully enclosed hardtop, and a raised foredeck to gain extra headroom in the cabin. The bait tank was designed so it could be used as a single 130L tank or dual 65L ones. Below decks there’s a 450L fuel tank and a step down into the cabin.
There’s no debating the blue-water credentials of the Offshore, with the time-honoured 22-degree hull and flared bow. The factory has made a number of changes including an extended keel-line to where the pod used to end, giving the boat 6.20m length as well as buoyancy in the rear where it’s needed for modern four-stroke engines and twin fit-ups.
Now with the standard option of a moulded floor it brings this boat to the next level.
The 565 is an excellent all-rounder. It’s an ideal size for towing and launching with the safety and strength of Edencraft’s larger models. The 565 hull has a long history and excellent reputation for rough water performance. The hull is also recognised as one of the original outboard-powered offshore mono-hulls – and one of the best riding hulls for its size.
