The team at JCM have just finished reconditioning this beautiful example of one Australia’s most favoured aluminium runabouts, the Quintrex 500 Coast Runner. The Coast Runner range is adaptable as the allrounder family day boating package, for those whom like to fish or simply laze around floating on the briny.
The boat has been through our workshop, and repaired and detailed, to ensure you are buying a compliant and sea worthy package, from a new telescopic LED anchor light, near new trailer, new rear lounge and back rest, engine servicing and fuel lines… Like all JCM owned and sold packages our name means you don’t buy someone else’s problems.
The Quinny is powered by what we are searching for these days an economical EFI 4 stroke Johnson 70Hp outboard. This 2002 built 4 stroke has been mechanically inspected by our workshop and also had a full engine service completed for the next fortunate owner to enjoy a summer of boating and avoid the pre-Christmas servicing delays. These engines for those that don’t know are Suzuki 4 strokes painted white, yes that’s right…. So future servicing can be done either by the team at JCM or your local Suzuki outboard workshop.
Suncover and spray deflection is provided by the overhead bimini top that can also fold down for storage or highway travel and front and side clears are fitted as photographed. Seating for 5 is provided by way of the 2 pedestal seats and the rear lounge. We like that the rear lounge can easily moved to mid ship, to assist with trim and also if you like your fishing you can get some shelter under the bimini when fishing out the back.
The helm position is comfortable even for big tall guys and although the sounder and radio are original and not too flash like the modern day sounder, they do their job and work. We love the dash as anchoring in runabouts can be a chore as leaning over the bow through the windscreen isn’t always easy. Check out the feature of this model, the windscreen opens, the fore deck opens and there is a safe passage way allowing you to easily attend to the ground tackle.
Well this is easily overcome, this trailer was brand new only a handful of months ago! Manufactured brand new in July 2017 and fitted with a mesh walk way for safer launching and retrieving at the ramp when slippery and a spare wheel is also included and fitted for on road towing safety. Naturally with an ATM of 1190Kg’s mechanical over ride disc brakes are fitted and with this low rigs weight, most larger passenger cars and 4wd’s can tow.
As photographed, The boat also has a fitted storm cover that attaches to the rear of the Bimini top and and comes down to the transom covering the cockpit. Ideal for when towing up the highway and keeping your gear safely stored or when parking up, keeping the neighbour’s cat out!
The rig is well suited for the family or couple whom enjoy fishing and the spoils of leisurely pursuits that boating has to offer and as photographed she presents in lovely condition and has the following accessories and features listed as:
