Calling all Quintrex Hornet enthusiasts! Here’s a boat you may not have heard of called an Aluvan 4.3 Razor. These aluminium boats are locally made in North Brisbane and have a steady and popular following with sport fisherman and owners alike. With a very generous beam, unique hull design that delivers exceptional stability at rest and yet also provides a dry ride. It has to be one of the most voluminous 14 footers on the market.
The Razor model has been a top seller for Aluvan and the company is now also expanding into the larger plate boat sector with this design that has worked so well on the popular estuarine models.
This rig was purchased new in 2012 and powered with a four stroke Mercury 40Hp tiller steer outboard. The Mercury has been mechanically inspected pre-sale and is in very good condition and backed further with a BIA limited engine warranty – why take the risk in buying privately? Features that we all love are fitted including electric start, power trim and tilt, steering friction control and a factory fitted flush port. These motors are renowned for their reliability, ultra-quiet when trolling and misery fuel consumption.
Many upgrades have been fitted including carpeting the rig and fitting a bow casting platform, ideal for those of us that enjoy crabbing, cast netting and lure casting. Under this platform generous storage abounds assisting in keeping the decks clear. Overhead protection from the midday sun is offered by a bimini top that also easily folds down and comes with its sock.
Two comfy seats with back rests are fitted and or easily removed if you want more open space, yet offer the skipper and mate a comfy place to rest after a long session standing and flicking lures. A side console has been fitted also to provide yet more storage and a place to house the electronics. From the skippers chair the layout is great and the ergonomics of steering via the elongated tiller arm is made easy.
The rig is trailered on an Oceanic trailer also made in April 2012 and comes with a spare wheel for added on road safety. If you weren’t aware, all our trailer are mechanically inspected by our 2 onsite mechanics, meaning you don’t tow home someone else’s problems.
This is a terrific estuarine and impoundment fishing rig, set up well for those that love fishing in both sale and fresh water yet want a rig that is very stable at rest compared to a standard mono hull and yet still want the ride of one… well done Aluvan! At $12,495 tow home with warranty, safety checks, and guaranteed title and for Qld buyers the registrations transfers completed excellent buying is to be had.
