WHAT THE PROS ARE SAYING
After I along with my fishing mate Cees Jongenelen competed with the top of
the Netherlands, we decided to join the Rapala Masters A race that was raced in
in Denmark, later on the Muritzsee in Germany and later on
the Lauwersmeer in the Netherlands. We have won the
Rapala Masters twice! In addition, once a second place
and once a fourth place.
My boat? The first Alumacraft was a Lunker, then an
Alumacraft Classic and now Alumacraft Competitor
165 Tiller with a Suzuki DF70. Just a step wider and
My next boat? Definitely another Alumacraft! But
then probably a model with a console.
NB: Arie is now sailing an Alumacraft
Competitor 165 CS
"For me there is nothing better than the tension while fishing and the hope for
the long-awaited bite!" Westin Country Manager Deutschland / Österreich
describes his vision of the hobby that unites us. He
started in 2007
and is a familiar face to many. He participates in
such as the Predatortour, the World Predator Classic
Luremasters, which he won in 2017 with his
Competitor 165. His attention is mainly focused on
pike-perch and modern spinning
But he is also an enthusiastic
deep-sea fisherman, and so he
travels year after year to
Norway for spider fish on large
Atlantic predators or in the cold
water from the Baltic Sea to sea trout.
A fisherman with heart and soul ...
Michael is a full-time fishing guide in Noord-Holland. He is author for div.
national and international predatory fish magazines such as dé
Roofvis, Rovers/Beet, Der Raubfisch, Fisch und Fang, Blinker
and Total Fishing. He has also collaborated with the TV
channels RTL 7, the German NDR and the Russian Avalon
you, like me, often have customers on the water, a safe
boat is necessary! Alumacraft makes such boats. I
sail with the Competitor 165 Tiller. I can be brief
about the sailing characteristics. They are
just PERFECT ... !!! Even with a
thick ZW 6 bft my Competitor 165
Tiller brings us safely to and from
the fishing grounds.
Herman, from the Zaan region, now lives in Ireland where he
organizes fishing holidays. There he is mainly fishing for pike.
His fishing water is the mighty Lough Derg and of course the
East Clare lakes in the vicinity.
His guests all have access to an Alumacraft V16, why
exactly this boat?
Lough Derg is a dangerous lake with strong wind and
you just want to sit in a safe boat.
The fact that these boats have been rented for use
at Lough Derg for 14 years, to their full satisfaction,
says a lot about the quality of Alumacraft!
