How’s this for a fantastic family boat to suit the couple or young family? The Signature brand is a name in the industry that’s held in very high regard and for good reason. The Haines 493F is one of the most popular models featuring practical design, the legendary variable hull that offers a beautiful soft dry ride and lines that are modern and pleasing.
A hull that can seat 5 adults in comfort whilst you make your passage over to one of the bay islands for a day on the beach or maybe your best mate or children and explore the bay and have a fish?
This rig is powered by what we all yearn powering our boats these days a 4 stroke, this Suzuki 70Hp outboard has a near faultless pre-sale mechanical report and has recorded under 180 hours of use. The motor is an EFI four stroke delivering exceptional reliability and frugal fuel usage. Like all motor sold by JCM its backed by a limited BIA warranty for buyers confidence.
The helm is comfortable, and we like the high back skipper and passenger pedestal seat, its of a high quality. Seeing through the windscreen is simple and the front and side clears help keep the spray at bay and wind. Over head a large bimini offers reprieve and shade from the midday sun.
The dash is well laid out with Suzuki engine instrumentation installed providing the necessary information and a Northstar Explorer 657 combo colour screen sounder / GPS for the angler amongst the family. The GPS also includes a mapping card for saving your routes etc. A stereo provides some tunes and a GME VHF radio offers communications back to base or boat to boat. Overall all the gear one would like on a boat of this size.
The rig is trailered on a Dunbier SR5.0MB single axle, multi roller trailer that marries to the hull like a glove. This in turn makes launching and retrieving a simple affair and like all our boats sold, we offer you on water familiarisation to demonstrate how to do this seamlessly. Like all trailers sold through JCM, we ensure your families towing safety by thoroughly testing and repairing the trailers for you all included in the tow away price.
If you are in the market for a quality fiberglass half cabin and have been looking at quality brands like the Quintrex Spirit, Cruise Craft and Stejcraft models, then make a bee line to JCM to inspect this new listing priced to sell at $24,995 tow away.
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?
Don’t run the gauntlet – with us it’s clear sailing!
Now don’t get us wrong, we’re not suggesting for a second that you don’t look around for a great price on a boat, in fact we encourage it! We just want to make sure that everyone on the water is safe, happy and doesn’t put their boat (or their friends and family) in any type of danger.
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.
