Wow, simply wow, the photos do the talking but for those that enjoy reading our detailed overviews, read on!…..
If you are in the market and you are a discerning buyer only wanting one of the very best Australian made fiberglass bow riders, really, it’s a choice between Cruise Craft or the Signature Boats.
Both built, by dedicated and long-established family companies that have been tried via the test of time and even though up against sometimes stiff competition from the imports from the USA, they give the yankee boats a true for run for their money when comparing quality of build, componentry, gel coats and upholstery all made for the Aussie climates.
This … stunning condition, JCM workshop serviced, Signature 535BR built by the Haines family has to be considered if next summer you are thinking of buying a bow rider for fun in the sun.
On the Water
Powered by the new generation 150Hp four stroke Mercury delivering exceptional performance whether it be economy you wish for social days or yearn for the power that this motor delivers if water skiing and tubing are your choice for on water activities.
The motor has recorded 281 hour of use and verified by the internal pre-sale mechanical reporting and diagnostic we do in-house to ensure you buy only the best used trailer boat.
The motor spins a 3 blade stainless steel Enertia propeller from Mercury and steering is made light with the upgraded steering system to a hydraulic unit by Seastar.
The lower leg is fitted with a Permatrim foil assisting with hole shot and performance and the engine gauges have been upgraded to Smartcraft digital gauges giving the skipper comprehensive information on the motor.

Style and Enjoyment
Boating is about enjoyment, social times with family and friends, making memories and experiences. The layout within this 5.4m package has been designed with this in mind from the beautifully appointed seating from bow to stern, the cockpit table to enjoy lunch in between skiing and or the snorkelling (am I setting the scene?)
For those that do enjoy getting into the briny, re-boarding is a simple affair with the transom being fitted with a boarding ladder off the boarding platform.
Storage abounds throughout the boat with side pockets, a large underfloor storage void and under the rear lounge all places to assist in keeping the cockpit clutter free with the days gear. Overhead a quality bimini top provides protection from the midday sun and can be quickly lowered and stored in the bimini sock if not needed or storing.
The meticulous owner has also had a custom fabricated full boat travel/storage cover made to assist in maintaining the vessel in its condition when not in use and being stored.
Trailered on arguably one of Australis best made and quality trailers the EasyTow SF5215005 single axle trailer. These trailers make launching and retrieving such a simple affair whether you are solo or with your partner.
Towing is simple and hassle free with the balance and braking system set up perfectly and with an ATM of 1650 most larger family cars and mid-sized 4WD’s can tow. Further backed with the reassurance of JCM completing a through service on the trailer prior to listing.
What a Rig!
Why wait for a new build or spend the big money when something as special and well-priced as this beautiful example is on offer backed with JCM’s long standing assurances as outlined further - Why wait?
See you at JCM!
Note -To keep the boat in its pristine condition, we have the boat cover on here at the boat yard.
