What an awesome package! Calling all Northern Qld fishers and crabbers from Yeppoon to Weipa, check out this custom Seajay 4.4 Ranger heavy duty tinny! Originally specked up from factory with a fully sealed checker plate alloy floor (no timer to rot) and draining decks as to be used on the owner’s private mother ship. Since 2015 the boat has been owned hence the new trailer being fitted and the boat has fished the front of Straddie in open waters trolling for mackerel and been up to Borroloola catching meter plus Barra!
As the photos depict the rig is heavily optioned with the fitting of a bow mount electric drum anchor winch for ease of anchoring and saving the back! The bow area has two buoyancy tanks that sit neatly apart and have been padded to make for a perfect place for the passengers to sit.
Wide gunnels assist in bracing the rig ensuring its robustness with the smooth plate like sides and heavy-duty construction. The side console neatly houses the wiring and switching and atop is fitted a recently installed Garmin ECHOmap SV large screen colour combo GPS/Sounder unit. This sensational fish finder also has the Garmin transducer with “Side Vu” a must when trolling the creeks up north.
The rig is powered by the industry leading Yamaha 40Hp 3 cylinder 2 stroke, known for the reliability and ease to operate and service. The motor features all the options we desire on a tiller steer outboard including an ergonomic tiller handle with touch power trim and tilt, steering friction control, electric and manual start and oil injection system.
The motor has been inspected pre-sale by our mechanics and simply, the motor is in very good condition and backed with a further BIA limited engine warranty for buyer’s confidence. A SE Sport 300 outboard foil has been fitted to assist with hole shot and fuel economy and naturally a charging kit is fitted to charge the start battery.
As the photos depict, this is a high sided hull with generous beam for stability at rest and backed with the Sea Jay know how for building great estuary fishing boats. The boats features and accessories are outlined as follows:
The Redco Sportsman RE1313MO trailer was purchased new in October 2015 and is dressed with quality alloy wheels, light truck tyres and mechanical over ride disk brakes for on road towing safety and compliance.
If you are in the market for a real tinny and especially for northern fishing pursuits where by the lighter tinny may not cut it, then we highly recommend this heavy duty package be worthy of consideration at $18,995 tow away!
