The mini-trawler looks of this new fisher make it a quirky addition to the peche-promenade scene, but can it match the likes of Beneteau and Jeanneau on accommodation and practicality?

For: Good shaded helm area,
solid construction,
predictable handling,
Against: A bit bow heavy,
cooker needs rethinking, as does the anchor

The Parker 660's forward-sloping looks and purposeful wheelhouse combine to make a bold statement, coming from a Polish yard trying to elbow into an established market.

It is also a completely new direction for Parker Poland, which is better known for building RIBs - and not just any ordinary RIBs. Parker’s in the big RIB game, with heavy duty 7m-16m commercial boats. On paper at least, it all bodes well for a fisher market that likes a bit of heavy-duty brawn.
