Here come the quality family runabouts to JCM and here’s yet another wonderful package from Quintrex being listed today. Our workshop team have finished the pre-sale testing and the sales team have been chewing at the bit to get this well-presented Quintrex 430 Escape runabout out to the market.
As the photos depict, the Escape isn't the standard “Dory” or “Open” boat made into a runabout by adding a helm and a windscreen. The Escape model has a fully welded and enclosed transom well, wide gunnels and a superior dash set up. Overhead a quality bimini top offers reprieve from the midday sun and this also neatly folds down out of the way for storage purposes or when towing at highway speeds.
Powered by a 173 hour old Mercury 40Hp 2 stroke that features electric start, oil injection and press button power trim and tilt, functions we all desire on our smaller runabouts. This 40Hp Mercury is the USA genuine mercury, not the Tohatsu painted black. Like all outboards sold through JCM it has been pre tested and is backed with a limited BIA engine warranty for buyers confidence – why risk buying privately?
Seating for 4 is provided by way of 2 pedestal seats up front and a rear lounge that can be easily folded down if additional cockpit space is required for the crab post etc. Storage is in the dash is provided as well as port and starboard side pockets and behind the rear lounge as pictured. After a swim reboarding is made a little easier as the transom is fitted with a small boarding platform and rails.
Trailering is a simple affair as the Quintrex TELLITE boat trailer that is made in house at Quintrex fits the hull like a glove. With a tow weight of under 600Kg most mid-sized family cars can tow with ease.
If you are in the market for a wonderful first boat or downsizing from a larger vessel and simply want a budget buster, you can go past a Quinny Escape priced at under $15K tow away backed with the assurances that JCM provides included in the price as outlined further 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?
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.
