Hi all,

I came across this picture of a magazine cover from 1967 on the net. I recognise the boat in the middle as a Javelin, but i'm not sure about the other 2 boats in the photo. They look like Savage boats, but i'm not sure of the model. Does anyone out there know?

Hi Julian,
Some how I missed this post?? Sorry.
The top boat is a 15' Savage Pursuit with a 1966 110hp Merc
The bottom boat is a 14' Savage Viva with a 40hp Evinrude.

Conduct a "search" on this Forum for more on these two Hulls. There are quite a number of posts I've made over these years, about them.
The search button is at the top of the page, third from the left.

BTW, I reckon I still have that very same magazine somewhere??

Hi Guy,

you have a great deal of knowledge about these boats and the motors. It's all new to me, as i'm just learning more about Australian boats now after recently buying a Javelin.

Thanks for the advice about how to use the "search" button on this site.

P.S. If you still had that magazine, you would be really showing your age. Although, non of us a getting any younger  Smiley

Does anyone know what this boat is? From it's design and condition (as well as the trailer), it looks to be an old boat but I don't think I have seen this make of boat before.

Great to see the Savages on a cover
Anyone able to scan the article? Or sell the mag?

The clinker boat might be from the Steber range, they had round clinker styles early on
