Wow, wow, wow, the photos do not do this boat justice - it is simply beautifully presented and offered to the discerning buyer, it would even suit a new boat buyer. A true credit to the previous owner in the manner it is presented to the market with the help of being stored well undercover and under the custom made, fully fitted covers.
This Haines Hunter 535 Profish is held in the legendary pillar of the family trailer boat sector as the Haines provides one of the very best riding fiberglass hulls on the market. Fine entry, deep vee that runs through to the transom providing an exhilarating ride in the afternoon chop for the young at heart.
The boat was repowered in March 2017 with the new model Yamaha 115Hp XB model replacing the carby Yamaha 115Hp that was on since new. The owner has stated that the new fourstroke has halved the fuel consumption and allowed them not to only travel further but also allow them to go boating twice for the cost of one trip when the 2 stroke was on the back.
Factory warranty remains until August 2021, normal Yamaha warranty conditions apply, but what a way to purchase piece of mind without paying top dollar for a brand new boating package! The Yamaha spins a 3 blade prop and the dash is fitted with the Yamaha digital engine gauges recording a low 77 hours use on this motor.
The dash is very well laid out for the skipper with a Lowrance Elite 5 colour screen combo GPS/Sounder that also includes the mapping card, a GME VHF radio and for those that enjoy some tunes afloat a Fusion stereo system is installed.
A compliment of safety gear is included as outlined in detail below and we love the covers included. Over head quality framed bimini provides some reprieve from the midday sun and we like how the extension canopy has been added without hindering the fishing accessibility in the cockpit. Front and side clears are also fitted to divert any spray and wind.
If young ones are aboard, a large V berth that has padded bunk cushions will offer the kids some shelter after lunch if a kip is required. Seating for 5 is generously offered in the design and loads of storage abounds throughout the cockpit, under the transom well and in the cabin as pictured.
The rig is trailered on a quality Dunbier R5.3HD single axle trailer fitted with an array of multirollers that marry to the hull like a glove. The trailer presents in new condition and naturally our workshop will still ensure your trailer brakes etc are adjusted prior to towing your new pride and joy home.
If you are in the market for a quality Australian made Haines Hunter fiberglass 17 ½ footer this special package is sure to impress the most fastidious of buyers. Priced very competitively at under $45K tow away backed with the reassurances that JCM provides as outlined in detail below.
