Nicky Sinden and the rest of the crew are now enjoying the many benefits of having a Mercury 250hp Verado powering their new Stabicraft 2400.

"There’s no motor we’d rather have on the back," Nicky said. "Reliability is key for us. We do a lot of fishing well offshore and I need to know that we’re going to get back in."

Nicky, who’s been fishing New Zealand’s beautiful waters since she was three, has been blown away by the Verado’s automotive-like driving experience.

The exclusive Electro-Hydraulic Power Steering system eliminates steering torque while delivering a precise steering feel while the Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS), standard to all Verados, provides instant, silky-smooth gear shifts and throttle response.

Another great plus is the Verado’s unbelievable quietness – so quiet in fact that many new owners have to double check the engine is actually running.

"It’s really quiet, really smooth and packed full of punch," Nicky said. From the day it was introduced, the Verado set new standards as the FourStroke that accelerates like no other.

ADOS Addicted to Fishing is different to many fishing shows in that it not only appeals to hard core fishers, but also connects with growing number of female anglers and children who love throwing in a line.

Mercury New Zealand manager Dean Harris commented: "That is what makes this partnership so perfect. The Verado is undoubtedly a high-performance engine, but it’s also an incredibly family-friendly engine. It’s ultra-reliable, extremely quiet and so easy to drive."

Nicky added: "I’m really looking forward to putting the Verado 250 through its paces and bringing our fans some more fishing adventures this summer. It’s going to be great!" 

The next season of ADOS Addicted to Fishing can be seen on Prime TV at 5pm Saturdays from 28 March 2015. Until then, fans can follow Nicky and the crew on Facebook and YouTube.
