Just when you thought fibreglass boats were getting to look pretty much alike, along comes the Arvor 20. This usually presents difficulties for trailing, but in this case a clever bottom design keeps the draft lower so the boat can still be launched at a boat ramp from its trailer. Provided you took the precaution of anti-fouling the bottom you'd be able to leave this 6.1m boat on a mooring, or marina for as long as you like. One imagines the Arvor will be just the ticket for the fishing enthusiast who wants a sturdy, offshore capable boat that he can moor or trail.
The hull is bigger and wider than your typical 6.2m trailerboat, and offers a huge cockpit for its length. For instance, the fully-enclosed wheelhouse is going to be great for cold, less pleasant days on the water. The cockpit is also self-draining and has a recessed walkaround for safe access to the bow.
Having the diesel motor mounted amidships means the rear cockpit area is left total free for fishing. This will seem like heaven to those who've had a line tangle with an outboard or sterndrive leg. There's a smooth stern wave, which is just perfect for setting a lure pattern directly behind the boat. Admittedly speed is not a strong feature the Arvor, but still 20 -22 knots isn't anything to sneeze at when you're plugging away offshore in a decent sized seaway.
Basically you can't travel very fast offshore and what the Arvor achieves is really practical speeds.
What this boat is really about is getting there at a comfortable cruise speed of 14-16 knots with the engine not working too hard and the crew relaxed. Commercial boat users have long favored diesel and that's why you will see a lot of them in trawlers and workboats.
Diesel might be the most expensive form of power to buy; yet they last a long time and in this regard they are very good value. The engine is fully designed for marine use by Nanni of Europe and features turbo-charging and intercooling.
The Arvor is capable of carrying an even bigger motor, however most have sensibly settled on the 85hp diesel size as it is just right for most conditions. The Arvor seems to have the right mix of features to make boat-buyers really interested, and apart from everything else it's a very attractively styled boat.
The bottom features a varying deadrise with deep for'ard sections tapering to a more moderate Vee back aft. The hull has a distinct chine 'lip' to enhance lift onto the plane, and improve at-rest stability. The keel is cut-away at the back to provide room for the shaft-drive propeller and in turn protects these vital parts of the boat.
There is a stainless steel 'shoe' extending out from the back edge of the keel so they won't be damaged during grounding. The hull shape is not too dissimilar to large motor cruisers, however with the major difference being a hollow above the propeller. The tunnel also helps to direct more solid flow to the prop blades which improves its performance. The keel gets gradually deeper as you move aft and ends up being at least 20cm deep at the back end.
The benefit of the keel is that it helps to keep the boat on track whether you're moving slow, or fast. This is of particularly useful when you're trying to handle the boat in a tight docking situation. No undoubtedly quite a bit of workboat influence in this design, particularly in terms of the very solid construction, high coamings and sturdy cabin. The high freeboard is a good feature for offshore work as is the self-draining cockpit with scuppers to stern and sides. The modern styling of the Arvor's hull and wheelhouse certainly confirms the French know how to design beautiful powerboats as well as yachts.
For trailing purposes the Arvor falls well within the maxi category, however not beyond the range of popular 4WDs like the LandCruiser and Nissan Patrol. A Break-away brake system will be required along with a dual axles and good saltwater protection.
I'd say your biggest challenge with trailing the Arvor is finding a suitable space at home to 'moor' the boat.
We had a good mix of conditions for our test, including calm harbour waters out to a big rolling swell. This steadiness also helps to give the impression you're on a much bigger boat than its size would suggest.
The benefit of the four-blade prop is most obvious from the moment you put the throttle into gear.


There is an instant delivery of power without any messy wash, or noise from behind the boat. In fact, the Arvor seems to just glide away at 1000rpm leaving a smooth wake that's a nice change after outboard boats. Picking the revs up bit more we got that remarkably smooth stern wave which is ideal for setting a lure pattern.
Moving down the bay a bit further we had slipped effortlessly onto the plane by the 2000rpm mark. We all know that high speeds can't be maintained for long periods offshore so a boat like this starts to make a lot of sense. We found we could open the motor out to a maximum of 2800 rpm, doing 22 knots, or about two knots less than your typical small tinnie going flat out.
However in big swells we found a more comfortable speed was really down around 15-18 knot where the hull wasn't coming off the back of waves too fast and slamming down. Running with the waves it was possible to lift speed up a bit, however since we couldn't out-run the waves we needed to adjust speed up and down to maintaining steerage and comfort. I believe the bottom hollow at the stern helps the boat to sit better in a following sea and less inclined to broach. This is an important consideration given you don't have the speed to out-run the wave, or trim button to adjust hull trim. The helm station is fully protected from the weather so the few times we did cop a wave over the front we stayed nice and dry. You also get very good vision from behind that large, wrap-around windscreen that has no pillars. There's also an overhead skylight hatch, which can be left open for ventilation when the door is shut. The arrangement here works quite well, however I'd prefer to see a modern style steering wheel with a wider diameter so it's easier to grab a hold. The helmsman has a padded seat which folds back against the cabin bulkhead, however at this stage there's no passenger seat provided in the cabin. The practical nature of this boat is seen in the foredeck area with its solid fibreglass bowsprit and deep walkaround deck. You get a stainless steel bow roller up here along with a big anchor bollard and self-draining anchor locker.
A solid, split bow rail not only gives good security when moving for'ard, but also easy people access from over the bows. The rail extends right aft so you've always got good grab-holds when moving about the boat. They have also provided grab rails on the cabin roof and bulkhead quarters to improve safety on deck.
There is a comfortable steering position with the throttle box fully recessed and the seat folding back when required. There is full length Vee berths within the cabin with bunk cushions and under-bunk stowage included. However, you could easy take along a portable camper stove, and esky to cater for meals on board.
There's room on the helm dash to add electronics like a colour sounder, radio and GPS cockpit.
Out in the cockpit there's quite a bit of room since the engine box is moulded as part of the floor. There are no side pockets for fishing gear, but you do get lockers under the two stern quarter seats. There's also a large hatch to give you very good access to the Nanni diesel and its running gear.
This means you can till-steer from the stern if you wanted to be close to your troll lines.
From a seating point of view you've got room for to three or four people in the cockpit, and even more with the optional side fold-away bench seats you see in the photos.
The deck layout and stability of this boat makes it a top rig for fishing, even if it's a bit short on fishing accessories. You also get the teak cutting boards back aft and recessed line rollers either side, which would be great for hauling crab traps and nets.
Obviously you could trick this boat up to a pretty impressive fishing rig with accessories like raised cutting board, sounder, GPS etc. However I'd be also adding some extra rail height in the cockpit as it's a touch low for good body support. It's a boat that could be used in the dual role of in-water cruiser and trailerboat and in this regard have terrific appeal to retirees and family boaties.
These people will really enjoy the benefits of a comfortable, relaxed ride without exactly having to take all day to get to the destination.
The diesel motor will give incredibly inexpensive running costs with fuel consumption on average is less than five litres an hour.

Our test trailer had all these features as standard, but I would still want an electric winch for a boat of this size.
Maybe it's because of that hefty diesel 'ballast', but this boat sure sits rock-solid in the water.
Diesels used to be fairly noisy beasts, but not this baby who ticks over very quietly and well behaved.
