The team at JCM have uncovered this beautifully maintained and optioned Seajay 535 Haven centre console package that also includes a brand new $4,500.00 Redco Sportsman RS560-MO trailer!
These are awesome allrounder boats are suitable for the angler whom enjoys all aspects of fishing from flicking lures, chasing reefies around the bommies, crabbing and throwing the cast net for livies, the space and room afforded to the lucky owner allows these pursuits to be easily undertaken. From the waters of Hervey Bay, the flats around the pin, these versatile boats are big enough to get out the front yet nimble enough to flick lures around in the estuaries.
The helm is comfortable for both driving whilst standing or seated on the padded storage box. The console has been manufactured to fold down for towing or storing undercover and is fitted with a marine radio and we love the 7” colour screen Garmin echoMAP combo GPS/Sounder fitted. These units offer tremendous resolution and this one is preloaded with Bluechart G2 mapping software and the unit has the upgraded transducer featuring side scan (SideVU) and Down VU helping finding fish that much easier.
Overhead a huge bimini offers ample protection from the midday sun and when wanting to flick lures at the surface schools, the bimini cab be quickly folded down offering the anglers full 360 degree use of the boats cockpit and foredeck. The foredeck is large and would make for a great place to throw the cast net or set up the crab pots. Access under is provided via the carpeted hatched allowing you to store the necessary safety gear and accessories and helping to keep the deck uncluttered.
The rig is powered by a Johnson 90Hp 2 stroke. The motor was purchased new by the one owner and when he purchased the Sea Jay hull in 2004 had its fitted from the old boat to the new Seajay hull. The motor was made in 1998 and has been expertly checked by our mechanics with a near perfect report including comps/bore inspection and cooling system she should offer the next owner many hours of reliable motoring. The engine has also been serviced by JCM and we also back it with a limited BIA engine warranty for buyers confidence.
The stern of the boat is fitted with a genuine factory fitted bait prep table and two rog holders and under the transom, a dual battery system is installed for additional battery backup. A live bait tank is installed in the port aft corner but not plumbed with an electric pump to fill, but rather a unique “venturi” style fill that has an intake from the underside of the hull, so when underway the water is pushed up into the tank. Simple and no messy electrics to worry about …
A complement of safety gear is included for the smooth water owner and is outlined further herein. Storage is throughout the boat with the side pockets, console shelf and under the bow and in the helm box which should see your gear off the floor and neatly stowed.
Trailered on a brand new Redco Sportsman RS560-MO boat trailer. We didn’t take the cheap road either, the RS model is an upgrade over the standard skid trailer with numerous keel rollers making launching and retrieving a breeze and for the experienced, the ability to drive on and off. The tow away price includes, the trailer fit up and 6 months registration for Qld buyers.
The Sea Jay brand is synonymous with building quality aluminium fishing boats and considering the replacement price of a new model of this size, this well optioned and beautifully presented one owner rig offers exceptional buying at $22,995 tow away and ready for the summer boating and fishing season.
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?

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.
