AFTER racing in the challenging Dinghy Derby, Patriot Games set out to Arnhem Land with a couple of 349 Territory Strikers for an overland tinnie tour.
Patriot Games follows the adventures of outback experts and camping enthusiasts in a reality series. The savvy team push the limits of Patriot Campers, Stacer Boats and Supertourers in a gruelling Australian adventure. On their way to the far corners of Arnhem Land, Patriot Games participants take their convoy to Wiligi, an outpost in the Northern Territory.
This vast area has less than one person every 6km and the team was thrilled to explore with their 349 Territory Strikers. The 349 Territory Striker was released early in 2018 and is equipped with the Striker Hull that features wider chines, creating more stability at rest and while under way. The team finds the Stacer boats ideal for fishing and exploring the abundance of natural, untouched waters in northern Australia.
Deeper by 160mm and wider by 90mm, the 349 Territory Striker is designed for remote adventures in areas where high sides and stability are important. Where the road ends and the water begins, the 349 Territory Striker is the perfect boat to take Patriot Games adventurers even further. Built with strong 1.6mm pressed aluminium sheets, it is light enough for two adults (or one adult and two little helpers) to lift on top of a vehicle.
Patriot Games took advantage of Stacer’s options and added a carpeted low floor and casting platform. The 349 Territory Striker can also have a bimini included, additional side rails and the bottom sheets can be upgraded to 2mm for rough adventures. Patriot Games is made up of a down-to-earth family happy to lend a hand. While in distant Arnhem Land, Justin, Sarah and the kids helps locals with various chores, heavy lifting and learn about life in the outback.
Patriot Campers founder Justin Montesalvo said, “We took a couple of Territory Strikers into Arnhem Land, which are the perfect rooftop tinnie with deep sides and a build quality you have to rely on with the number of crocs around!”
Stacer national account manager Cameron Wood said, “When Justin told me where they were going, I didn’t hesitate in recommending the 349 Territory Striker. This tinnie is a result of customer feedback from passionate Northern Territory boaties. With high sides, light weight and rugged build quality, it is the adventurer’s dream.”
