Tournament boats are very well regarded as a premium product that are now proudly built locally by the Haines family in SE Queensland, a name synonymous with building class leading trailer boats including Signature, Seafarer and Traveler boats.
This 2012 built Tournament 1750 is beautifully presented and very well appointed with all the goodies a family could want on an allrounder as pictured. Comfortable seating for 5 is offered by way of a rear lounge and two pedestal seats. The rear lounge can also fold down increasing the cockpit space and allowing easier access to the transom for the fisherman in the family.
The transom is well designed with 2 live bait tanks (one plumbed/one not), a bait prep/fish cleaning table, dual battery system and deck wash. Storage abounds throughout the boat with the underfloor locker, side pockets and under the bunk cushions to store the days gear and odds and ends. A compliment of safety gear is included as outlined in the accessory list in detail including an EPIRB.
For families with young ones, spray / shade and wind protection is important, the boat has been fitted with a quality set of covers, a front clear, side clears along with a boat storage cover and as a bonus an outboard cover as well is included! The cabin is light and airy and fitted with cushioned bunks providing a place to lay down after lunch or between bites.
The rig is powered by a 102 hour old Evinrude ETEC 90Hp DFI 2 stroke delivering exceptional power and fuel economy not that far away from what 4 stroke outboards consume. The motor is a 2012 model and has been pre-tested both mechanically and diagnostically via our computer software. Like all outboards sold through JCM, they are backed with a limited BIA warranty for buyers peace of mind removing the risks associated with buying privately or from auction.
Sitting at the helm, it is well set up with quality electronics including a Garmin 551S GPS, a large screen Humminbird 998csi combo GPS/Sounder unit, a Garmin VHF radio providing communications boat to boat or boat to shore and for those that enjoy their tunes whilst afloat, a Fusion stereo sound system (no AM/FM) is installed. Along with a cluster of engine instrumentation providing the necessary information to the skipper and visibility is really good even for us “tallies”.
Launching/Retrieving and trailering is made easy with the Dunbier R5.3HD multi-roller trailer that marries to the underside of the hull like a glove. The trailer is a 2010 build that presents in very good condition and is fitted mechanical over ride disc brakes for added on road towing safety.
If you are in the market for a wonderful family orientated allrounder then this beautifully presented and optioned Tournament 1750 is very well priced and offers great value at under $35K tow away inclusive of the assurances that buying from JCM offers as outlined below.
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.
