The quality, pre-tested used trailer boats are rolling into the boatyard and here’s another perfect family / fishing package that won’t break the budget and is full of the features we all yearn for in a 17 footer aluminium cuddy cabin package.

First Impressions

This beautifully presented package has been stored under cover when not in use as supported by the pictures showcasing her condition. With a low 162 hours recorded on the 90Hp Mercury Optimax outboard and we will have ready to roll for the upcoming season knowing the motor has had its annual service completed by the JCM workshop and for buyer’s confidence is backed by a limited BIA engine warranty!

The Motor

The 90Hp will easily and economically push the family across the bay and for those whom enjoy some water sports like skiing and tubing, the 90Hp will allow you enjoy these pursuits as well. The motor spins a stainless steel “Vengeance” propeller, has fitted a SE Sport 300 engine foil and being a Direct Injection 2 stroke, means the fuel economy is amazing compared to older generation carby 2 strokes.  

For the Skipper

The cockpit is massive for a boat of this length with ample room for the esky, fishing gear, crab pots and the like and storage is offered throughout the boat as pictured. Sitting at the helm the engine instrumentation is neatly installed, atop the dash a Northstar Explorer combo GPS/Sounder provides the information you want when fishing and a GME VHF radio provides the communication back to base or boat to boat. For those that like their tunes afloat, a stereo system is also installed.

A compliment of safety gear is included as outlined further and over head protection from the sun is offered by way of the quality bimini top and front and side clears assisting in keeping the spray at bay. We also like the inclusion of the overhead rod storage rack which helps keep the rods high and out of the cockpit.

Seating for 4 is comfortably installed and the rear lounge has storage under where the safety gear has been stored. The transom has a quality ladder fitted and after a quick swim or snorkel reboarding is easy via this and the walk-through transom with a door. The “cabin” doesn’t have any padded upholstery, however if you have young ones, this could be a great place for them out of the sun and you could add some throw cushions or have made up some upholstered fitted cushions to compliment this added space.
