We have just landed this 44-hour old Haines Hunter 520R fiberglass runabout and what a spectacular package it is! Offering the sporting family a wonderful allrounder this summer. The legendary Haines Hunter hull carves the choppy waters with its deep vee hull and sports the performance for those wanting to water ski and enjoy the fun of tubing and tobogganing and social boating.
The cockpit is huge for a 5.2m hull with loads off storage on offer and generous beam and high topsides ideal if you have young ones aboard. Seating is comfortable and plush ideal when running across the Bay back after a day’s boating and swimming. Overhead a bimini top provides shade from the midday sun and this easily folds down out of the way when not in use and the rig is being stored or towed.
We all want the economy and reliability of the modern four stroke outboard and this beautiful has rig has been ideally powered by a 44-hour old Suzuki 90Hp EFI outboard. Efficient, whisper quiet at idle and known for their reliability, we envisage the next lucky owner will enjoy these superb Japanese motors. The engine has been pretested - both being computer tested and mechanically inspected by our workshop to confirm hours and condition and is within factory tolerances and further backed by a BIA warranty!
Driving these sporty boats is so much fun and the helm is well set up with the engine gauges, throttle and seating all set up well and comfortably within arms and eyes view. We like how the windscreen easily opens allowing safe passage to access the ground tackle stored in the bow. A compliment of safety gear is included as outlined in detail below.
Trailering is made easy as the rig is towed on a quality Dunbier 5.3HHD single axle, multi-roller trailer that marries to the hull like a glove. As pictured, it has been fitted with dressed alloys, has a matching spare and black guards for aesthetics. Like all trailers sold through JCM they are also pre-tested and then repaired/tuned/refurbished to ensure you tow away a road worthy trailer with confidence.
If you are looking for a quality Australian made hull that takes choppy waters in its stride that also comes from a performance background, then the Haines Hunter 520R is one such summer fun machine!
