    Allison 189 Fisherman (2000 model), 115hp 2stroke, 15hp 2stroke aux, Brooker tandem trailer (apparently 400kg), stainless rocket launcher & bow rail, dual swim platforms, dual battery, 150L fuel onboard, couple small eskys, few rods, standard safety gear and ready to fish the bay.
    Weigh bridge total : 1660kg

    Towed with manual 2005 VZ V6 Commodore for many years. The clutch really struggled.
    Now towing with auto 2012 Prado diesel which is a great match. Hauled from Sydney to Brisbane many times without drama even on +35 DegC days. 16.5L/100km on highway.

    So the vag would be over 2500kg with a full tank. Good to know if selecting a tow vehicle
