We see loads of boats, we read lots of boating material, we dream of boats, but is this possibly the ultimate trailer boat?
“All Tricked Up” has landed at JCM and is offered to the discerning and researched buyer looking for a genuine, maxi trailerable for fishing, serious fishing and family days on the water.
The Seafox brand has grown on the Australian market over the past decade with a stable Australian dealer / importer bringing this quality and well-respected USA craft to Australian waterways. This extraordinary package has been ticked with numerous options and fitted out to the highest order to suit the requirements of mixing family leisure time with fishing time.
As the photos depict “All Tricked Up” is an apt name for the vessel and her presentation is near spot on. The original motors were removed and she has been refitted with 2016 model 200Hp Yamaha four strokes that have recorded a low 60 hours use. The motors have both been mechanically and computer tested and backed with balance of factory warranty until December 2019 (Yamaha warranty conditions apply).
The rig is perfectly powered by these light weight 200’s and she runs efficiently and quietly and range is assured with approx. 540L capacity underfloor. The helm is beautifully laid out with everything at the skippers hand from engine ignition – button start, dual binnacles control, to Yamaha digital engine monitoring screen. The navigation and fish finding system is a networked Furuno system with new generation systems from the TZ range. Two large screens one 15 inch the other a 12 inch screen are integrated with NXT Radar, GPS, 711C Auto pilot and two 1 x KW transducers (1 X Low frequency, the other a high frequency).
Over head the boat has been fitted with the “Ultima” Hard top package including storage cabinets, rod storage tubes, numerous LED (red/white light) lights, water demister and LED flood lights. Framed with large diameter aluminium supports offering true strength. As the photos show, atop of the hard top a set of quality outriggers for those that enjoy trolling. The cabin is easily walked around on the top deck and 8mm foam deck flooring has been laid to provide ample foot comfort on those long days when fishing on the far grounds.
The hull has been regularly polished and has also had Nanoclear clear coating applied from the gunnel rubber down at a cost of $4,600.00 alone. Throughout the rig its evident to see where money has been spent on upgrades and features. The transom area is very executed for fishing with a huge custom-made bait prep table fabricated, a place for the beers, numerous rod storage and the hardware. Under this is a live well, plumbed that could also double as a bath for a child! Its approx. 180L in capacity, lined with a light blue hue to keep the little piscatorials happy in a serene environment… deck wash is set up and a shower (approx. 60 to 80l of freshwater) to assist in keeping the workstation clean.
Under the transom, triple battery system is installed, and the factory fitted option of a Solar Victron Hub is installed (no solar panel though) but the ability to hook one into the system for battery charging if mooring or the like. Access is very simple via the large hatches and the wiring is a credit to the rig. Access aboard is via the folding stainless-steel ladder that also neatly is housed in a recess moulding. We also love the recessed trim tabs, no sharp edges for fishing and children swimming around the transom area.
The boat has a plethora of features and we have tried to outline the major features as follows…
Naturally the Seafox webpage can run you through the tech data and we found a great overview on one of the boat sales webapges which was well written and researched.
Trailering – it goes without saying this is a maxi trailer boat. We have been informed that she is shy of 3,500kg’s dry of fuel and water. The Magic Tilt alloy trailer is set up with brake away braking system and an ATM of 3500Kg’s. The owner does recommend a vehicle larger than a Landcruiser for towing but we ofte find many a buyer wish for this type of craft to be dry racked or sit atop a canal pontoon, removing the hassle of towing etc.
Of late we have seen similar sized “aluminium” vessels offered for this money with only the one motor, and no where near the fit out nor with the electronics. If you are serious about having the best we are confident we have the NQ reef angler or the Gold Coast boatie a top of the line sports fishing vessel, come to think of it, we don’t think there are too many other brands that offer the depth of fit out that Seafox is bringing to the market in this maxi trailer boat sector.
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.
