As the old saying goes “If it ain’t broke….don’t fix it” – and this is certainly true of the new Sportyak 245 from Bic Sport. So why’s it new then? Quite simply, it’s a name change from Bic 245 to Sportyak 245 – and for sure, it was not ‘broke’, so it ain’t been fixed!
The Sportyak 245 is the perfect boat to use as a workhorse, fishing boat, a tender or for simply messing about on the water – it’s stable, tough, light and at a great price. But more importantly it is the incredible attention to detail and the complete package that sets this boat aside.
“It’s the little things that set the Sportyak 245 apart,” said Ed Broom, UK Brand Manager for Bic Sport. “The boat has been a real hit since it was first introduced to the UK and if you want to know what we mean by attention to detail then just check out the integrated glove compartments in the seat. Bic Sport really have thought of everything”.
The wide built in wheels ensures that transporting from car to water is a doddle and smooth launching and recovery are easy. Simply pick up the bow and wheel the boat to the required destination – the extra wide wheels make manoeuvring over sand or soft ground a cinch. Ideal for 1, 2 or 3 adults – whether it is fishing or delivering gear or people to your yacht, getting to your favourite spot or simply messing about on the water – the clever design ensures that you have the room and the safety. Stability was a priority when it came to the design as was the cost and durability. The Sportyak 245 is built to last and built on a solid reputation spanning more than 35 years of experience and development.
At £549 it is a remarkable price when you consider that this includes everything, oars, rowlocks, seat, rope, seat and wheel system. There’s nothing else to buy! Just load it on top of the car and away you go. And if you leave it on the beach – don’t worry – its bombproof construction ensures a long life.
