First Impressions
Built in Queensland the boats have been in production for over 15 years. Several models are in the range from 4.8m to 6.0m. This beauty is the 4.8m / 480 Centre Console with an armory of quality upgrades and quality features to suit the sports angler whether be an impoundment freshwater sports fisher or a flats stalker.

This rig commenced life being fished mainly in Lake M at Gin Gin trolling for the elusive "meterey" Barra and the computer diagnostic report verifies the hours at trolling speeds. The owner has maintained the boat well recent fitting of new hydraulic steering, trailer and motor servicing. The damage to the lower port quarter had been done prior to this owner and upon our expert assessment, we can find fault with the repairs other than a slight mismatch in blue colour gel coat. #purelycosmetic

On the Water
The hull delivers an exceptional, solid and sure-footed ride in any sea you are willing to be mad enough to go out in. We have seen these boats and the smaller model beat 30 footers leaving Wathumba Creek and make their way home safely to Hervey Bay.

For the Skipper
Just check out the helm! Wow, what a set up! From the Lowrance HDS 9, GCom VHF radio, GME stereo system and ETEC engine gauges on/in the dash along with storage within the console. Overhead a large bimini provides ample shade from the missay sun and this can be easliy lowered if flicking lures or towing/storing.

Under the foredecks casting platform, ample storage is provided for all your safety gear, ground tackle and more a great design. The port side sees installed mounted under the gunnel a rod storage locker that will assist in protecting those quality Carbon-fibre sticks and around the boat more rod holders are provided.

The Motor
The rig is powered by an Evinrude ETEC 75Hp DI 2 stoke that effortlessly pushes this rig with 3 aboard and are renowned for their reliability and excellent fuel economy. With an 80L fuel tank under the floor, range is assured! Naturally buying through a dealership such as ours, the motor is backed with a BIA warranty - why would you risk buying privately?

On the Trailer
The trailer is a solid Dunbier R4.7B braked model and was manufactured in January 2011 and marries to the hull like a glove. With light truck tyres and mechanical brakes with the knowledge it's been freshly serviced, you can tow away with a smile on your dial.

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.
