Are you in Pursuit of a perfect allrounder for family boating and a boat set up for some serious fishing adventures? Have we found such a package with the well optioned one owner since new, Pursuit 550F fiberglass half cabin.
As the pictures depict, quality features abound in this package conducive to a day’s social boating and lazing around to getting out on the deeper blue chasing the big fish. The dash has a compliment of electronics including a Furuno FCV 620 colour sounder, a Garmin Echomap 65cv GPS with inbuilt mapping for you to mark your spots. For those that enjoy their tunes afloat a stereo is installed and for boat to boat communications a 27-meg radio is fitted. (Please note the VHF isn't operating and not listed as a saleable accessory.)
We all want four strokes for their reliability and just as importantly their incredible fuel efficiency where you can get up 2 kilometers of range from a litre of fuel allowing you to go further in one trip or enjoy more frequent trips for the same fuel costs. Either way, better on the hip pocket and for the environment – ‘win win’. This rig is powered by a pre-tested, workshop backed Suzuki 140Hp EFI four stroke that has only recorded a low 320 hours use!
With approx.. 130l under floor fuel capacity, range is assured! The engine has been both pretested mechanically and via our computer diagnostic testing to ensure you are purchasing a quality outboard. Atop of this the Suzuki is further backed by a BIA warranty for buyer’s confidence – why risk buying from the private classies and not know what “quality” the motor is?
Overhead a wonderful set of covers have been fabricated keeping the midday sun at bay and offering your family plenty of shade. Also fitted are side clears and front clear for added protection from the elements. Over the bimini a quality rod storage bracket is fitted keeping your unused rods up high and out of the way for added safety.
This rig has been used for the odd overnighter with the upholstered cabin bunks offering a place to lay a weary head after a day’s boating. The owner has installed a 40l freshwater bladder / shower so you can enjoy a wash down before bed or the kids can enjoy a quick shower after a swim to remove the salt. The cabin has room to add a chemical toilet (not supplied) and we like how a privacy screen has been fitted to the cabin’s entryway.
Seating for 5 is provided with 2 pedestal seats mid ship along with a rear lounge that also neatly folds down if more cockpit space is required for fishing etc. The transom is well set up for fishing with a quality bait prep table, a live bait tank, underfloor kill/storage tank, dual batteries to provide ample reserve power for the electronics and pumps and cockpit lighting if chasing the fish during the night.
The rig is trailered on a quality HD Belco BCTMR5.4 tandem axle trailer that has been well built and fitted to marry to the hull like a glove. The trailer is fitted with mechanical override brakes and includes a spare wheel for your on-road towing safety. Like all trailers sold through JCM they are workshop backed/repaired/adjusted where needed to ensure road worthy compliance and this service is all included in the tow away price - so no added costly surprises!
