The team at JCM offer the family looking for a great value family / fishing rig with a budget under $23K this well presented and optioned fiberglass half cabin with a new generation DFI Optimax outboard!
The Quicksilver Dominator 510 is a great family allrounder with a generous cockpit for seating for 4 or maybe a 5th if you were to use your esky as a seat against the transom. The cabin yet still has a large enough cabin with cushions for the children to have a kip after lunch or between bites. As the photos show, the boat has high topsides and generous beam for stability at rest.
The helm is comfortable with Mercury Smartcraft engine gauges fitted and atop the dash a Lowrance Elite 5X fishfinder and a GME GX600 VHF radio in arms reach. Overhead a bimini offers some reprieve from the midday sun and a front clear assists keep the spray at bay or rain when driving.
The cabin is light and airy with storage available for the days gear and easy access is provided to the ground tackle stored in the anchor well via the large cabin roof hatch and two safety rails either side atop the deck. A stainless-steel bow rail neatly dresses the boat and also makes for a great grab rail when launching/retrieving at the ramp.
The rig is more than adequately powered by a Mercury 90Hp Optimax DFI outboard that has recorded a low 268 hours. The Optimax DFI outboard are well known for there reliability, frugal fuel economy compared with carby 2 strokes and their exceptional hole shot performance. Like all motors sold at John Crawford Marine the engine has been both mechanically pre-tested and diagnostically tested via the computer and atop all this backed with a limited BIA engine warranty for buyers confidence. Reducing the risks associated with buying privately – why take the risk?
The rig is trailered on a quality Quicksilver (Dunbier R5.0B) multiroller trailer manufactured circa October 2006. As the pictures demonstrate, the trailer has recently has the brakes overhauled to ensure RWC compliance and the next owners on road towing safety.
This is great buy backed with all the confidence and assurances JCM provides included in the low tow away price of $22,500 as outlined further in – begging the question why take the risk with a private sale? If you have been looking other quality brands like Baysport, Cruise Craft, Signature and Haines Hunter in this size bracket, then make a bee line to JCM to have a squiz at “Loon-a-sea”.
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?
