JCM are excited to offer the boating family whom enjoy all the spoils that boating offers with this wonderful family allrounder - Cruise Craft 500 Explorer. The team at JCM sold this package to the owner some 3 years ago and she's now on offer for the next fortunate owner.
A bit about the boat...
As the photos depict the rig is well optioned and presents in great condition. The Cruise Craft 500 is regarded as one of the largest boats when amongst competitor's brands that claim the same length. The Cruisy offers very generous beam which provides great stability at rest and has high internal freeboard which is a bonus if you have young ones aboard.
The Motor
The rig is powered by a 170 hour old Evinrude ETEC 115Hp that effortlessly pushes this rig along both reliably and economically. The engine also has the power to pull the kids skiing or tubing if the summers water sports are the table. Naturally like all engines sold at JCM it has been both mechanically tested and diagnostically tested on our computer checking for error codes and confirming engine hours. The engine is backed with a BIA limited engine warranty for additional buyers confidence.

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.
