Ultimately I'm looking for something to fish over the back of the iow, having the odd night stay, and a decent turn of pace to it (previously had a seaworker)



I'm running a 100hp mercury fourstroke outboard.   Got to say I am quite happy with the consumption I'm getting from it.

My boat is Jeanneau 6.4mtr so slightly smaller than the Parker 660's.

My cruise speed is 18-20kts and I burn between 20-22ltrs per hour at that speed.

Hi, I had a Parker 660 brilliant boats wouldn’t think twice about having another. Have a look at WSF boat section and you see loads of pics of mine as well as the fuel figures
