Looking for an ideal entry level boating package that won't break the budget? Looking for something that can be easily towed? Is simple to launch and retrieve and should fit in most modern garages? Look no further than to this well-appointed Quintrex 420 Estuary Angler aluminum runabout.
The boat has had numerous upgrades over the past 18 months keeping it modern and compliant. The original sounder was recently replaced with a new Garmin Striker Plus 5CV combo GPS / Sounder unit along with upgrading the radio to a VHF GX600A unit from GME and a G.Radio is installed for some tunes also from GME. This wonderful assortment of electronics are neatly fitted to the dash and in easy reach of the skipper.
Overhead a bimini top offers some reprieve from the midday sun and this roof easily folds down for strorage or if towing down the highway. An assortment of safety gear is included as outlined in detail below. Seating is simple with two pedestal swivel seats for the skipper and passenger and a rear lounge is also fitted that easily folds down out of the way if not needed. We like the two stainless steel securing points fitted to the floor, these are used to tie down the esky mid ship.
The rig is powered by a Mercury 30Hp 2 stroke that effortlessly pushes two adults and two children along on the plane. This is the USA built Mercury not the Tohatsu model painted black. The engine has features that all skippers desire including an oil injection system – no pre-mixing! Turn key, electric start and power trim and tilt! Making motoring simple and easy.
Like all outboards sold through JCM they are pre tested to ensure your buying confidence and further backed with a limited BIA engine warranty for buyers confidence, reducing the risks associated with buying privately. No hour meter is fitted, hence why the mechanical inspection looking at compressions, cooling system and powerhead are so important.
Trailering is an easy affair as the South Coast Trailers trailer fits the hull like a glove. The trailer was also recently overhauled with new tyres, rims and matching spare wheel/bearings replaced. With a low ATM of circa 600kg’s most mid-sized family cars can safely and legally tow.
Boats of this quality and fit out today cost in excess of $20K, save a bundle and enjoy this well-presented Quintrex 420 runabout for only $10,995 tow away backed by JCM and the assurances we include in the deal to make buying a boat a simple and hassle-free experience.
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?
