Tristram 881 Offshore

Everywhere you look, inside this boat and out, there is an attention to detail and a level of finishing that few production boatbuilders can match.

It’s a fishing boat, sure, but it is still a luxury maxi-trailerboat that the whole family can enjoy whether they’re fishers or not.

The 881 Offshore is competent, good-looking, well-equipped, and a wonderful match for the Mercury Diesel Engine.

Tristram’s Flagship Cockpit

Cockpit space was paramount in the Tristram 881 Offshore’s design brief. With ample room for four divers to suit up at a time, or four or more anglers to fish.

A port-side walkthrough and starboard-side live bait tank are standard. In-fill squabs for either side of the engine box offer a bench seat by day and additional berth by night.

Non-skid fibreglass flooring, removable carpet and SeaDek flooring treatments are available which each offer unique properties for a variety of boating activities.

The 881 Offshore sits at the pinnacle of trailer boating with it’s cockpit’s class-leading size, practicality and functionality.

Mid-Ship Galley

Practicality was top of mind when the Tristram 881 Offshore’s galley was designed. Traditionally, boats of this size offer cooking facilities in the entrance to the cabin. Tristram’s mid-ship located galley offers an array of layout and design features that provide the chef and their crew with an experience, second-to-none.

The cabin remains free from cooking smells which keeps it fresh for overnighting. A fridge is mounted under the driver’s seat to keep refrigeration sounds away from cabin occupants overnight, and 360 degree vision is maintained so the chef can continue to enjoy the on-water ambiance.

Standard features include cutlery, plate and pot drawers, electric drawer fridge, moulded sink & tapware (hot water system included) and a gas cooker and gas bottle (audited on every boat for compliance with AS/NZS 5601).

The 881 Offshore’s mid-ship galley offers a unique and practical food preparation station for long weekends away.

World-Class Hardtop

Two hardtop hatches introduce natural light and airflow into the cockpit area. These hatches are also useful for spotting work ups and offer brilliant ventilation for the 881 Offshore’s mid-ship located food preparation and cooking facilities.

A 3-facet toughened glass windscreen with double mullion system for superior strength is standard, as are sliding side windows, stainless steel fore-aft rails and vertical port & starboard grab handles.

All Tristram hardtops are designed with moulded side and top flares for wind deflection. Ceilings are also lined with vinyl paneling for sound absorption.

A Fusion Bluetooth entertainment head unit and speakers are mounted in the hardtop’s instrument panel and each owner has the option of mounting their VHF beside the Fusion head unit or in the skipper’s moulded side pocket.

Moulded Boarding Platform

A seal-free boarding platform ensures the cockpit and engine bay remain dry and clean. Backing up in even the fiercest of seas is effortless thanks to the platform’s carefully designed height and fully moulded top and undersides.

A recessed boarding ladder, LED boarding lights and strategically placed stainless steel grab handles are offered as subtle practicalities to ensure your time on the water is stress free.

An optional multi-purpose stainless steel Transom U-Bar allows owners to further utilise their boarding platform by enabling the addition and removal of a baitboard, tender, auxiliary engine or bbq.

The dynamic and unique ‘Tristram’ look is created with moulded transom deck fins that roll down and onto the platform for an integrated and sleek look.
