Fibreglass bowrider
Hull Year: 2005
Boat Length: 5.5m




Here comes summer and for those water sports-based boaties, there’s nothing better than running over the bay with family and friends in a superbly made Cruise Craft Resort 55. These iconic boats deliver all that’s wanted in a sports multi use trailerboat to enjoy the summer on the water.

First Impressions

These Australian made bow riders have a proven design conducive to the bay (along with Haines Hunter and Haines Signature boats notably) where they leave many an imported design back in their wake with their deep vee hull and generous beam for great lateral stability when at anchor. Another great feature is the anchor well, you may ask WT? but have a look at most fiberglass bow riders, they lack an anchor well. Nothing worse than pulling a muddy laden anchor over the coaming dropping mud onto the plush upholstery to store under a bow cushion! 

On the Water

Powered by a low 216 hour old, 150Hp V6 Yamaha VMAX HPDI 2 stroke, delivery exceptional direct injection performance (like that of a Mercury Optimax/Evinrude ETEC) and the economy that goes with this new generation of low emission power. As an added saving to your wallet, the tow away price includes the costs of the recent comprehensive engine service that has been completed by the JCM workshop. The motor also has been mechanically tested and backed with computer diagnostic testing, atop of this a limited BIA engine warranty is supplied. Why take the risk with a private sale and not knowing what you are buying?

The seating throughout is all about comfort and lazing around swallowing the suns rays and enjoying the summer days afloat, seating from bow to stern is provided. The skippers and passenger chair is comfortable even for us bigger folk and the helm as everything one wants to skipper the boat – a new Garmin sounder is fitted, a communications radio, switching, digital engine instrumentation and for those like tunes afloat, a Clarion stereo is fitted. Over head a bimini provides some shade from the midday sun or the skipper when towing skiers all day at the dam.

A bow cover is included as photographed and the previous owner has had made a full custom-made boat storage cover that can be used towing or when storing. The transom includes a deep reaching extendable adder and a transom door making reboarding a simple affair after a swim or a snorkel.  A freshwater transom shower is installed, allowing one to rinse of the salt and be refreshed.
