Featuring a Scott Robson design, the Custom 830 model will have an overall length of 8.38 metres, beam of 2.5 metres, and an estimated tow weight of 2600kg. It will also feature a 6mm thick alloy hull.

The Pinnacle 830 will be powered by a Honda 250hp four-stroke outboard fed via a 600-litre fuel tank, ensuring extended trips before refuelling.
