Are you looking for an affordable entry level package to simply get on the water and enjoy a spot of fishing and crabbing and wish to keep the package within the budget?
The team at JCM have just traded this exceptional well-presented Clark 3.7 Open tinny package. The rig has been through the workshop to ensure your enjoyment on the water with the motor being serviced, trailer being checked and serviced and bringing her to the market at an affordable tow away price of under $3,500 and leaving some money in your budget to buy some additional safety gear and boating toys…
As the photos depict a simple and neat rig with two bench seats for seating, an over head bimini top for some reprieve from the midday sun. This also easily folds down and out of the way when not in use or when towing on the highway. The full mid floor is carpeted and not only is it nice to have your feet on, also stops the sinkers from rolling under the seats!
The rig is powered by a USA Mercury 20Hp 2 stroke outboard that pushes two adults aboard easily and frugally. These are awesome little engines to use as they have features not found on other tiller steer outboards like the F/N/R all in the twist throttle control, allowing one handed operation. We also like on these models the steering friction control and a battery charge kit fitted.
The motor is fuelled via the 24 l portable fuel tank offering great range and naturally the motor is backed by a limited BIA engine warranty and atop of this the engine has also been serviced in March saving you more money!
The rig is trailered on a Redco Sportsman RE1210LW trailer that has been checked and repaired where needed to ensure your tyres/wheel bearings/springs and lights all in sound condition for your safe towing. These trailers make launching and retracing a simple affair from the ramp and with a weight circa 450Kg’s most small to medium cars can safely tow.
What a great little creek and dam fishing rig to get on the water affordably and on a “Cigarette” budget…. Get healthy give the “durries” and buy a boat for under $4k tow away backed with all the reassurances of buying through JCM as outlined below – why risk buying privately?
When it comes to used boats, it’s likely your watercraft is going to be your second or third largest investment behind your house and car. This is the reason John Crawford Marine goes to extensive lengths to ensure every boat that rolls out of our Brisbane boat yard goes through a range of comprehensive checks and maintenance audits before it is even listed as a used boat for sale.
This means when you walk into our Brisbane boat dealership, you know every boat is quality assured, meaning you can get on the water quicker.
Private boat sales are great, but what are you actually buying?
Don’t run the gauntlet – with us it’s clear sailing!
Now don’t get us wrong, we’re not suggesting for a second that you don’t look around for a great price on a boat, in fact we encourage it! We just want to make sure that everyone on the water is safe, happy and doesn’t put their boat (or their friends and family) in any type of danger.
Unless you know what to look for – hidden mechanical problems, leaks, incorrect or inferior screw & bolts, etc for fixes – there’s a possibility your dream boat will quickly turn into a money pit.
John Crawford Marine completes the following checks:-
