Here’s a cracker of a centre console tinny package for the estuary angler who is seeking simplicity and a practical fishing platform at an affordable price backed by JCM. This Sea Jay 4.3 centre console is a perfect platform for the bays angler.
As the photos depict this rig has been well optioned with upgrades as the budget would allow. When crabbing, prawning and fishing in the shallows, its best to have an unpainted hull so it doesn’t scratch and carpet can hold the mud and sand. This little rig is ideally suited to these pursuits with the features and accessories outlined as below.
The centre console is neat and houses the Garmin Fishfinder 350C with a colour screen, a storage shelf and electrical switching. The helmsman can sit atop a storage bin which is an ideal place for the safety gear and is padded. Note that rear pedestal seat isn’t fitted but is included.
The motor is a 2012 Mercury 40Hp 2 stroke that has the features we all desire including electric start, power trim and tilt and oil injection. This is the USA Mercury 40ELPTO model not the Japanese Tohatsu/Mercury model. The motor has been mechanically tested and for buyers further confidence is backed with a BIA limited engine warranty – why risk buying privately?
The Mercury 40Hp delivers more than enough power for two up, running around the bay. Two 24l portable fuel tanks are included providing range if needed and the motor spins an upgraded 4 blade propeller.
The rig is trailered on a Roadmaster trailer that again has been refurbed of late and again is checked by the JCM workshop ensuring you tow away a road worthy trailer.
If you are in the market for an affordable little fishing workhorse ideally suited to fishing and crabbing, then the Seajay 4.3 centre console is worth an inspection at under $8,000 tow away backed by JCM and inclusive of the reassurances as outlined below and that you aren’t buying someone else’s problems via a private sale.
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:-
