All about Parker brand
The Parker shipyard, established in Czosnow in Poland in the early 1970s, is a subsidiary of AH Parker & sons, a British company. As the parent company specialised in the construction of rigid inflatable boats for the army, fire brigade, coast guard and other special forces around the world, the Polish workshop was originally set up to pursue this kind of production. A wide range of RIBs was developed by them that range from 5.10 to 16 metres. These boats draw on the company's background in making lifeboats and workboats so they are as safe and seaworthy as can be, while benefiting from added comfort compared to their forebears.
Parker, boats designed through experience!
At the same time Parker took advantage of this experience to establish itself in the "fishing-cruising" market by designing a series of rigid boats which now includes 11 different models. Their "light" range includes wheelhouse boats for fishing, whether your trip is just going to take a few hours or a whole weekend. The other range, known as the "Dark" range, is dedicated to sports and pleasure boating or cruising. These are open boats or houseboats where sundecks have replaced the fishing equipment.
The 660 Pilothouse and Weekend are thus built using the same hull and are therefore equally seaworthy and stable at anchor, while giving you the option of choosing a layout that best fits what you are going to use the boat for.
Parker: buy your future boat
From the very first models designed and created to the most recent, boatbuilder has a wide selection of seagoing pleasure craft for you to choose from. The boats of the range be divided into various different categories that continue to become ever more refined with the passing nautical seasons.
