Falcon 575SRX Boat Review

Boat Review Date: April 2017

Overview

At 5.75 metres this Falcon RIB is smaller than the maximum Rottnest tender length, but there is an advantage in the more modest size. The typical garage is 6m x 6m; the Falcon will fit in it, reducing deterioration from the sun and other environmental elements. When out in the open, protection is provided by a standard wear cover over the buoyancy tubes which also defends against boarding feet.

More Information

One of the delights of the Falcon is that practically anything about it you do not like, or anything you wish you could add, is fixable. Seabreeze imports bare hulls from Europe and sister company West Ribs manufactures everything else locally. This means you are free to add, subtract or change to create the boat that fits your needs. For example, the review boat had no provision for shade; West Ribs will happily fit one.

For use as a tender this Falcon pretty much has it all, space and seating accounting for most of the needs. Nothing sophisticated in the anchoring department but, of course, West Ribs can remedy that with a bow roller. There are official seats for six with a semi official seventh on the bow platform. Infinite casual seats of course on the buoyancy tubes. The grab line for these people is drawn taut along the tubes’ tops – exactly right for the job in the way that the common sagging beckets are not.

A potentially maddening possibility in a power boat is a fuel system that not so much leaks as oozes. For many of these boats checking for the ooze or leak involves cutting out a piece of deck to expose the fuel system. Not here, because removal of a lid exposes the tank and fuel lines. More to the point, the need to expose is lessened because during the fit out process West Ribs tests the fuel system to 3 psi – far higher than its operating pressure.

In a nice touch the house and starting batteries are located in the console. Not only is this more convenient for checking and maintenance, but it assists with trim; marine batteries are heavy. The switching gear for charging these is, thankfully, the foolproof kind (until they invent a better fool).

Our Falcon was powered by a 115hp Tohatsu four-stroke. Most people who have heard of Tohatsus assume that they make only two-strokes, although discerning people know that those two-strokes are excellent. Not that it matters here: this Tohatsu is a Honda under the skin; literally. Lift the cowl and there is the Honda name on the power head. Nothing new there: Yamaha built Mercury’s four strokes for many years (and Tohatsu built many of their small two-strokes). Not a lot different to the way the automotive industry operates.

The Falcon proved an easily driven boat with its moderate deadrise and soft chines; small throttle openings gave disproportionate speed meaning, probably, good economy. It was a nearly windless day, but vigorous use of any available wakes suggested a soft riding hull. Naturally we played a bit and found a fun to use boat. Fun was put on the agenda by West Ribs: the gantry that carries aerials and the like also has a ski rope bollard.

Provision of storage is almost at the fetish level; locker lids are everywhere. Under the deck alone are scuba lockers and an ice box. All of which means an absolute lack of clutter on the deck. Exactly as a tender needs it.

As a v-bottom enthusiast we never imagined owning a catamaran because we could do whatever they could do and until most recently they always looked funky and ugly. While in Miami at the February boat show they had the coolest looking fishing boat in the water, and we couldn’t even tell it was a catamaran. It was their 22’ BaD Cat and we signed up to do a demo and we could not believe how comfortable, dry, and fast it was. The fuel efficiency you’ll have to see for yourself. Simply mind blowing how comfortable it was in such a nasty chop. My wife doesn’t like to go fast as she gets very nervous and scared. Yet we were cruising with a single outboard at 47mph and she was smiling, nodding her head, as she liked it. Then the captain asked if we minded running it wide open for the other couple on board to see how fast it would go with a full T-Top with spotters’ station. I said go for it and within seconds we were doing 60mph and I got nervous seeing ahead some nasty three footers for a 22’ boat thought we might get banged around. To my surprise this BaD Cat sliced through that nasty chop like it wasn’t even there. I was SHOCKED at the performance, the smooth ride, how dry it was, and then the captain slowed down, turned around heading back to the Miami Marine stadium to the docks. I was ready to buy my first boat at a boat show. As I stood back looking at this good-looking fishing machine I knew I had my wife’s approval. So, I looked over and saw her looking at another cat next to us. I asked are you ready because I really love this BaD Cat? She said she like this one and it was the twin engine Falcon 22’ but it looked like it was 24’ if not bigger. So, we went out in the Falcon with another captain and it was soupy nasty where all the 40’ and bigger boats were showing off and this 22’ Falcon kept right up with them and the faster the captain pushed it the nicer the ride. She liked the twin-engine Falcon and I loved the BaD Cat, and both would work perfect for us in the Keys where we are moving to for a 2nd home. We are in a dilemma because the only solution is two boats and so I’m making arrangements once we relocate to find a place with two docks, so we have the best of both worlds. The single outboard cat draws 9” and the twin outboard cat draws 14” which serves all our fishing and boating needs. If we saw these boats on trailers we would have walked right by them. But being in the water they not only caught my attention but riding in them changed my view on what we have been missing. We rode in a few other cats thereafter and gotta admit that nothing in this size could compare to what the owners are building at Falcon Boats. They are much more comfortable, stable, dry, and affordable. Their fit and finish, their rigging, and the features they offered do not compare to anything else we saw or looked at. Their staff was so nice and professional that we actually had a great time hanging out with them at the show. They have earned our business and we know what will be our next boats! Thanks for making me a believer,


John & Nancy
