Looking for a well-made, brand name recognizable quality aluminium side console fishing platform? Been to the boat show this season, can't quite justify the price of new? Well here's a fantastic plate sided side console for the sports fisherman and bay angler built by Formosa Boats.

This Formosa 480 Side Console package was purchased new in 2010 and presents in very good condition as pictured and comes with a swag of accessories that will suit the fisherman and crabber. With a generous beam, high topsides, wide coamings and class leading stability it's easy to see why the Formosa brand is up amongst it with the big 2 alloy manufactured brands.

The rig is powered by a low 220 hour old direct injection Evinrude ETEC 60Hp. Economically pushing 2 or 3 adults along with the days gear efficiently and reliably. Like all our motors sold at our dealership, the motor has been both mechanically and computer diagnostic tested. The engine has also been serviced by our team and has also had the computer software upgraded. Backed with a further BIA limited engine warranty buyer peace of mind to the next fortunate owner is a given.

The engine is fueled by approx. 110 l underfloor tank that was upgraded to this at the time of order over the standard smaller capacity tanks. So those amongst you that require range in places like Weipa and the remote north, this will assist with minimizing the "jerry can" shuffle on the top decks.

The side console is well thought out for us tallies and move to fit behind, engine gauges, the Humminbird 587Ci combo GPS/sounder sits neatly atop and both a 27meg radio and VHF radio are fitted for communications back to base and boat to boat. Overhead a large folding bimini top offers reprieve from the harsh summer midday sun and easily folds down when not needed or the rig is being towed on the road.

We love the plumbed live bait tank fitted to the stern and for night time fishing, you have a choice of lighting from the under-gunnel LED strip lights to the external LED strip lighting. We have fitted a compliant anchor light for your on-water compliance. Plenty of storage abounds around the boat for your gear and the under-bow floor storage area is also cavernous.

The rig is trailered on a quality Redco Sportsman RE1513-MO trailer manufactured locally in March 2010. The trailer has also been fully refurbed and inspected by our mechanics to ensure your on-road safety. From the brakes to wheel bearings, tie down strap to a R -clip - compliant.

If you have been looking at quality bands like the Quintrex Top Ender, Stacer Outlaw or the Bluefin Wrangler then this well presented, compliant and warranted package should be at the top of your list to inspect! With all the benefits of trusted dealership behind you as outlined further, why take the risk with a private sale or an Auctioned boat?

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.
