As new Bluefin Ranger 500CC plate sided center console has just landed! This one owner rig was purchased brand new in July 2018 for $38,800 with the options fitted and has only recorded 32 hours use! Bargain buying for a new boat buyer now at under $32K tow away.....

First Impressions
Purchased from Bluefins, Northside dealer in Brisbane, no expense was spared in kitting this rig out for a dedicated fishing boat where you could chase surface busting Tuna on Fly, bottom bash for Pearlies or head up the creeks in search of a feed of muddies. As the photos depict, plenty of scope in this big open design to do what you want.

The Motor
The package was upgraded from a standard 70Hp model to the bigger four stroke 90Hp so when loaded with some camping gear and a few people are aboard power isn't "wanting". This big Mercury has 32 hours recorded, service was completed in November and is up to date allowing the balance of factory warranty expiring in 2023!! (conditions apply) to be transferred to the next fortunate owner. The outboards spins a SS prop and is fueled by a large underfloor fuel tank giving you plenty of range.

On the Water
On the bow sits proudly the new Minn Kota Terrova Riptide I-Pilot electric motor, beautifully installed and powered by its own battery fitted under the console. These electrics are regarded as the ultimate for those fishing in currents and wanting the "stealth" of sneaking up on the fish.
Check out the console, atop sits proudly a huge screen Humminbird Helix 9 Gen 2 combo sounder and GPS. With superb screen resolution and amazing technology helping you find the fish. If you haven't seen the helix range, head to YouTube as there are some amazing video demonstrations showing these units functions and capabilities. The unit also includes the mapping card for additional data on the water.

Flush mounted are an array of Mercury engine gauges, and the all new hand held VHF model radio from GME for back to shore and boat to boat communications. A shelf allows storage for the days gear and the windscreen rails provide a safe hand hold.

The transom is well set up for the angler with a quality bait tray fitted with rod holders built in and we love the underwater LED light fitted- ideal when squidding over the shallows on those inter nights. A range of safety gear is also included and outlined further below with the boats features and accessories noted as follows:

On the Trailer
The rig is trailered on a quality Oceanic TSL5.1-13B single axle trailer that marries to the hull like a glove. The trailer was manufactured in July 2018 and presents in as new condition. Brakes are fitted and with an ATM of 1000Kg, most midsized family cars should be able to safely tow. Like all trailers sold through JCM they are checked/repaired/adjusted prior to handover to ensure you tow away a safe and compliant trailer.

Look out fishies, here we come!
Seriously if you are looking at buying a new fishable centre console and have been looking at other quality brands like Seajay, Clark, Quintrex and Stacer, make a bee line to see this 5m package from Blue Fin backed with all the assurances that JCM provides as outlined further below.

You can have confidence in buying a boat from John Crawford Marine, Queensland's Used Boat Specialists. Since 1964 we have been buying, consigning and selling only the best range of quality used trailer boats.

The advertised price includes written mechanical reports on the hull/motor/trailer. Our trailers are sold in roadworthy condition, right down to tyre pressure checks and an R- clip being supplied on the trailer coupling!

As a member of the Boating Industry Association, our boating industry body, we only use industry endorsed paperwork. Further, engines are supplied with a BIA Used Recreational Motor Boat warranty (Unless advertised otherwise). We guarantee title as JCM supplies PPSR certificates (known as REVS) providing our buyers confidence and security.

As part of the delivery process, on water demonstrations (where practical and additional costs may apply) are offered to assist with familiarisation of your purchase. Registration transfers and Road Worthy Certificates (Qld only) are taken care of by our office staff and paid on your behalf for your convenience.

If you are an interstate buyer, we can still assist with ensuring your trailer is sold to you in road worthy condition, as it's an Australian Standard. Although the trailer is sold unregistered, for a small fee, our staff can provide you with an Unregistered Vehicle Permit to allow you to tow home safely and legally.

Don't live nearby? JCM can assist with arranging transport to mainland Australia via reputable and insured boat transport companies.

Upon delivery your rig will undergo a workshop pre-delivery, boat wash and the sales consultant will complete a handover.

Do you have a trade in? John Crawford Marine is always looking for stock, so why not ask the sales team if they can assist with your trade.

Looking for Finance? Again we can assist with providing you competitive finance rates to suit you and your budget.

Lastly, but just as important to consider when owning a boat is comprehensive insurance. JCM is privileged to offer you two of Australia's leading Boat Insurers, Club Marine and Nautilus Insurance.

On behalf of the team, we look forward to seeing you.
