Why buy a Hasle Summerfun boat? What are the focal points for a small console boat with an outboard motor and/or trailer? In this blog, we will provide you with a few arguments explaining why we think that a Hasle Summerfun boat is a good choice.

The segment of small polyethylene console boats and other plastic console boats is represented by various reputable brands. Think of the Whaly boat produced in the Netherlands, as well as other Scandinavian boat brands such as Roto boats, Pioner boats, River boats, Terhi boats, and Seastorm boats.

The quality of all brands of boats is simply good. The differences mainly lie in their design, available accessories, and motorization options. However, the prices for a comparable base model can vary significantly between brands and models. For instance, a Hasle Summerfun 365 boat with a steering wheel can be purchased starting from around €3500 (including VAT and delivery in NL, excluding the motor), whereas the price for an equivalent base model from another brand is considerably higher.

The motorization options vary. We recommend using an outboard motor with a maximum power of 15 hp on Summerfun boats. In that case, the boat will plane and can easily reach a speed of around 40 km/h or even more. The boat's "Summer Fun factor" is definitely fully realized at that speed. The achievable speed naturally depends on the boat's load and the number of people on board. A boating license and registration are required for a 15 hp outboard motor (at least in The Netherlands).

Boats from some other brands can be powered by engines with a maximum up to 30 hp and sometimes even more. This may be useful for professional purposes, but for the average water sports enthusiast, that much power is really not necessary. Moreover, there are fewer and fewer places where high-speed boating is permitted. That is why we most often sell Summerfun boats with Honda 8 hp outboard motor.

At bootjes.nl, we sell most boats with a Honda outboard motor. Honda is slightly more expensive than other brands, but it surpasses all other brands by leaps and bounds when it comes to performance and reliability. While the initial cost of a Honda outboard motor may be slightly higher, we offer free installation of a Honda outboard motor when purchasing a Summerfun boat. So in the end, you won't be paying more.

If you prefer an outboard motor from another brand, we are also happy to assist you. There are also options for a competitively priced Yamaha outboard motor or an electric motor from e-Propulsion. If you have a dealer in your area who can install your outboard motor, we can also deliver your Summerfun boat free of charge to the dealer of your choice.

A Summerfun boat is virtually indestructible, maintenance-free, and made of high-quality polyethylene (PE) that is resistant to the elements.

Feel free to come and see what this boat looks like. You will be immediately convinced of the quality of Hasle polyethylene boats.

In addition to an attractive purchase price, Hasle Summerfun boats are characterized by their versatility, simplicity, stability, maneuverability, user-friendliness, safety, self-draining cockpit, ergonomic design, and comfort. The well-thought-out Scandinavian design of these small boats provides ample seating space and other convenient features to enhance you boating experience.
