Renewed favourite model

Report this content

In 2016 Terhi launched its first bow rider 475 BR. Straightaway it became the most sold boat package in Finland. For the upcoming season 2020 Terhi has designed two renewed versions of the favourite model. The new 480 BR and 480 Sport will be launched at the Helsinki boat show in February 2020.

480 BR

The new 480 BR is a safe double-console boat for the whole family. Two steering consoles with a steady middle door provide good shelter for the driver and passengers in the back. The aft area has two fully padded comfort seats and a wide stern bench, comfortably seating five adults. Behind the stern bench there is a canopy storage compartment for a canopy that covers the whole stern area in case of rain.

480 Sport

480 Sport is a speedy boat with the looks from the 70’s and 80’s power boats with today’s driving characteristics and technology. 480 Sport’s low sleek windshield enables great visibility. Stiff triple layer ABS-plastic hull combined with a 60 hp outboard engine guarantees good rides.

Well equipped 

When designing the new 480 models the focus was on safety and versatility. Boats come with a wide range of standard equipment such as two padded offshore seats for the driver and passenger, wide stern bench, cleats, storage compartments and a door between the consoles. The console has a 12 V outlet and a place for a 9’’ chart plotter. The bow can be equipped with a sunbed and by removing the paddings the plain surface can be used for spin fishing.

Storage space for everyone

Both of the novelties have great amount of storage compartments. The consoles have lots of storage spaces, place for bottle and two lockable glove compartments. Under the bow bench there is a large storage space and next to it a place for anchor and mooring lines. In the stern there is two boxes for ropes, a spacious compartment under the stern bench and in the 480 BR a compartment for stern canopy. All the storage compartments, except the row boxes, are lockable. 

Unsinkable Terhi boats

The 480 hulls are made with Terhi’s signature three layer structure with ABS plastic. The unique construction of Terhi boats guarantee besides unsinkability, also quiet rides even in rough weather. The space in between the thermo-formed ABS-plastic hull and deck section is filled with non-water-absorbent polyurethane foam. The result is a solid and stiff sandwich construction, which is easy to maintain and quiet in use.
