OK..... You know JCM, you what we do at JCM, you know what we do behind the scenes to bring to the market the best used trailer boats and that we have been doing this for over 50 years. Well here is yet just another example of JCM doing what it does best... Offering you a stunning serviced and beautiful family boating package at an affordable price.

This beautifully presented Tristram 521 Deluxe family boat ticks so many boxes for social boating and all this for under $26K tow away with a 4 month old Redco Sportsman braked trailer under it included in the price. Tristram boats are made in New Zealand and have an enviable reputation as they build a quality boats right up to 9m!

As the photos show, this stylish package would be the pride and joy of the street, offering a large volume cockpit, no bulkhead obscuring the cabin entry but rather an open airy and light filled cabin which is great for ventilation and "opening" up the boat offering a feeling of "its larger than it is".

This rig is a 2004 hull and motor and you would have to read the HIN plate to prove it, such is her condition. Powered by a 135 hour, Yamaha 115Hp 115CETO 2 stroke offering exceptional performance and the known Yamaha reliability. The team at JCM have serviced the motor, in December 2017 so you can be reassured of reliable motoring over the winter fishing season and no need for another service until this time next year or 50 hours use, whichever comes first.

The power plant is perfectly matched to this size hull and if water sports are your thing, the stainless steel ski pole and or ski hooks will see a many a day of enjoyment skiing and tubing if you so desire. Boarding the boat after a swim or a snorkel is easy via the transom ladder and platforms. The cockpit has a carpeted floor reducing glare and offering the feet some reprieve on those long hot days. If you wish for a kip, the cabin has padded cushions and bunk infill cushion making it into a large v-berth.

Overhead a large canopy is fitted for weather protection along with side clears. If towing the rig down the highway or storing at home, this canopy can be easily folded down and the cockpit tonneau cover can be installed as photographed. A boat storage cover is also included to assist with keeping the dust off the rig and the neighbour's cat out!

The boat provides comfortable seating for 4 adults with the two stern ¼ seats and 2 seats mounted on storage boxes mid ship. The helm is comfortable with the engine instrumentation all in easy viewing and a Garmin Fishfinder 30 and a Navman Tracker 5380 GPS is installed.

As mentioned in the opening comments, the old trailer was underrated for this rig and the JCM team fitted and supplied this brand-new quality Redco Sportsman RE170-MO single axle braked trailer in December 2017. These trailers are locally made and we didn't take a cheaper option but wanted to ensure your towing safety and provide a trailer that makes launching and retrieving a simple affair. We also went the 170 rather than 160 model which is shorter by 30 cm.. Although aesthetically it may looked better, the reality is with a Prado/Pajero the way the rear door opens you could never access the boot as when opening the door it would hit the winch post.. Anyways, experience tells us, "there is method and logic to our decision ?)

Why this boat?...
The workshop has fitted the trailer and it now hugs the Tristram hull like a glove! If you are in the market for a quality fiberglass family runabout and just missed our Revival and Cruise Craft 500, this may well be a perfect opportunity to grab a fantastic package and be on the water this coming winter fishing season. At under $26K tow away with all the JCM advantages and assurances provided as outlined further, why risk buying a private sale rig and not know what your getting?

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.
