The team have at JCM have just uncovered this fantastic budget priced family allrounder – a Coxcraft 525 Rumrunner Series 2 that is now offered to the market in time for the summer boating season. As the photos depict all the options and toys a family would ever want to enjoy a days boating on the briny is included and outlined in detail below.
Coxcraft have built a true allrounder with this model ideal for a bit of fishing, social boating or even do a little skiing behind her. Comfortable seating for 5 adults is provided and we like how the rear lounge folds down when fishing from the transom. The transom is well designed for the angler in the family with 2 live bait tanks moulded, a stainless-steel bait board that is also fitted with two rod holders and high internal freeboard.
The cockpit is generous for a boat of this length with room for the esky, side pockets for storage and overhead a large bimini top provides shade and shelter. Front and side clears are also installed as pictured. The cabin is light and airy, fitted with upholstered bunk cushions if one wishes to overnight or if you have young children that may want a kip.
Powered by a Yamaha 115Hp V4 that delivers a perfect match for the hull delivering Yamahas known dependable power and efficiency. The motor has naturally been pre-tested by the JCM workshop and is further backed by a limited BIA warranty for buyers confidence. With a low 194 hours recorded on the factory Yamaha digital engine gauges.
The helm is comfortable with good viewing through the windscreen even if you a “tallie” like me. The dash has inlaid the Yamaha digital engine gauges, a Humminbird 787C2 colour screen combo GPS/Sounder, a VHF radio for communications back to base or boat to boat and for those that like their tunes whilst afloat, a GME stereo is included.
The rig is trailered on a quality RE170T-MO Redco Sportsman tandem axle trailer. Not often do we see tandem axle trailers under boats of this size as most owners don’t want to spend the extra money on the upgrade, however this isn’t the case here and the next owner get the benefit of 4 tyres touching the black stuff which in turn makes for safer highway towing. Like all trailer sold by JCM they undergo rigorous testing and are repaired where and if needed to ensure your on-road towing safety.
What a package, what a price knowing you are not only buying the boat, but also the reassurances that we provide for you as outlined below – so why take the risk buying privately? At under $28K tow away, this rig wont last long!
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.
