The Elite 8 has our unique Herley Bait board which slides from the starboard transom to the centre, there are cupholders, rod holders, tackle draw, defrost bin and of course ample cutting room. The bait tank is to the port with a slosh divider, light and viewing window and the Plastek tackle draw can be found to starboard side. Throughout the Herley Elite range we have ensured we use premium hardware as our standard.

Interior

The Herley Elite 8 and Elite 8 Captain offer either an open or enclosed wheel house, or the option to simply have a lockable forward cabin. Inside our Elite you will find a comfortable and inviting environment, built and designed to highest standards. The wheelhouse boasts custom Vetus bucket helm and co pilot seats on air ride adjustable pedestals and the rear two person bench seat can flip to face forward or aft, with comfortable arm and foot rests. The fold out teak table allows room inside for dining. Akin to the timeless and classic American game fishing boats, the helm is trimmed in highly polished timber, with soft head and side liners framing the large and opening side windows and front windscreen. The design of the Herley Elite 8 has ensured there are plenty of storage options. In the side pockets is lockable storage cubbies one designed specifically for your rods, there is storage under floor, under the captain and co pilot seats you will find slide out storage.
