I have owned my Shearwater 860 since 2009 and I have been impressed by the quality, reliability and versatility of it. It has been used mainly on the coast of Northern Ireland on cruises along the coast and over the North Channel to the Inner Hebrides and also over to the Isle of Man. Conditions can change very quickly so the excellent sea keeping and the shelter provided by the sprayhood and the cabin have been very beneficial. It has also been totally reliable and never given any problems.
