Hi marsh, welcome to the forum.

Sorry but I have deleted the duplicate post in the gereral forum, all the boaty types will see your question in here. It saves Mikes bandwidth and costs.

The microplus is a good boat for inshore fishing for two. Ideal boat for 2 to fish from in calm weather and a good starting point. ;)

Is this to be your first boat?

Shetland is a good boat, out of the 3 that would be my personal choice. They are heavily built and will take more stick than the others.

I HAVE OWNED BOTH THE DEJON AND A SHETLAND 535 AND WOULD GO FOR A SHETLAND ANYDAY . THE DEJON IS VERY UNSTABLE I HAD TO STAND IN THE CENTER OF THE BOAT TO STEER ,IF I STOOD IN FRONT OF THE WHEEL IT FELT LIKE IT WAS GOING TO TIP OVER.I WOULD SAY THE DEJON SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN TO SEA (DONT WAST YOUR CASH ON A DEJON):nono: :thumbdown

No-one's noticed the thread's 2 years old yet then?

Microplus 500. Awful POS unless you enjoy feeling seasick.
