Traditionally, pilothouse boats could either be designed for comfort (day trips, weekend trips and excursions) or for functionality (watersports, fishing and transport), but never for both. The Parker 920 Explorer MAX is the perfect crossover for both segments – allowing the customer to adapt the boat to different usage in just minutes.
The Parker 920 Explorer MAX can be fitted to provide all the comforts you need for overnight stays in a boat – including a soft top so you can make the most of sunny days.
The aft deck is much larger than competing boats, with more deck area than our largest daycruiser, the 850 Voyager. No other pilothouse boat can offer as much seating, spacious table and sun loungers on the aft deck as the 920 Explorer MAX. The aft deck furnishings are module-based so you can choose exactly which modules you want fitted. The modules can also be moved around at any time and can be removed from the aft deck to leave even more space for fishing and transport.
The aft deck has all the fittings required to install a pump for the water hose, fish tanks, circulation pumps, net, pot and line haulers, transforming the boat into a purely working and fishing machine.
The boat also has a 150-litre ice box on the aft deck that can either be used to keep both crew and passengers refreshed or a fish tank. Extra tanks with circulation pumps, of 200 or 500 litres, can also be fitted on the boat.
Hull, comfort and fuel economy
To go further on the successful hull concept developed for the 790 Explorer, Parker designed the 920 Explorer MAX with a completely new and optimised two-step hull, with integrated engine bracket and deep V-shaped hull.
The increased length and weight of this boat compared to the 790 Explorer provides for even greater comfort and eliminates almost the entire planing threshold, reducing the need for engine power, increasing top end speeds and improving fuel economy.
Single or twin outboard
The traditional perception in the boat market is that outboard boats longer than 9 metres need twin outboards for optimal performance, due to unsophisticated, poorly balanced and old-fashioned hull designs.
Thanks to the well-balanced hull and highly modern two-step hull technology and integrated engine bracket, the 920 Explorer MAX has high level performance with either a single outboard or twin installation.
Powered by Mercury’sV8400HP, this boat can reach speeds of 40 knots with a good margin.
