There are two brands of quality Australian made fiberglass bow riders that our team are regularly asked about and in our opinion lead the plethora of imported bow rider makes on design and ride with our conditions built in mind - Cruise Craft and Haines Signature.

We have just listed this Cruise Craft 550 Resort that has been well kitted out for all that the bow rider style of boat offers the owners- wakeboarding - skiing - tubing - social boating and speed. This 2004 package doesn't look its recorded age and our reports indicate a well optioned and presented package.

The Cruise Craft 550 is now marketed as an R55 and the hull shape itself hasn't changed all that much as why change something that works so well. The hull has class leading beam giving wonderful stability at rest, ideal when at anchor enjoying a lunch with family and friends. The layout offers comfortable seating throughout from the bow lounge, 2 deluxe bucket seats to the plush rear wrap around lounge. The upholstery has been very well maintained due to the boats cover and being stored undercover.

After a ski, access back on board is made simple via the extendable 3 rung boarding ladder, boarding platform and then access back into the cockpit with a token walk through transom and door. The transom area also allows enough space to comfortably sit on whilst donning on the snorkel gear. Storing the days gear is also catered for with a wake board rack on the tower, underfloor ski locker which in turn would also make for a good space for the ground tackle/fenders or the like.

The rig is powered by a 108 hour V6 Mercury 150Hp EFI outboard delivering exceptional performance for the water sports enthusiast and the EFI system offering easier start and a little better fuel economy over a straight carbie model. For those like to bare foot and or ski on a single, this power plant will allow you to enjoy this activity. A day on the water for the skipper is made easier with a quality Seastar hydraulic steering system fitted. Our mechanical reports demonstrate a strong engine and for further buyers confidence we back the motor with a limited BIA engine warranty.

Trailered on a Dunbier SRW5.7T tandem axle, multi roller trailer perfectly suited to the hull and these quality trailers assist in making launching and retrieving a simple affair. For those with a little experience, one could drive on/off as well saving time at the ramp. The trailer requires a little work to the brakes to bring it up to RWC standards and these costs are included in the tow away price, ensuring your on road towing safety and compliance.

As the photos highlight, this is a wonderful package in great condition that offers the next fortunate owner a quality Australian made bow rider that is heavily optioned for on water fun for under $35,000 tow away with warranty and the experience of JCM's certified used boat confidence - why would you risk buying privately?
