Seatime / Stejcraft make this wonderful 5.1m fiberglass cuddy cabin which will ideally suit the young family or couple looking for a versatile package to enjoy exploring our beautiful waterways in a comfortable boating package.
This as new condition Seatime 5.1 Fisherman appears now to be owned/branded by Stejcraft and called a 530 Fisherman and always stored garage, regardless of its name, check out the design and best of all its powered by a new generation fuel efficient Evinrude ETEC Direct Injection outboard delivering exceptional fuel economy and reliability.
There is more than enough power to enjoy a day’s skiing or tobogganing as the DI 90Hp will easily pull an adult up on doubles and ski hooks are fitted to the transom. The ETEC spins a stainless-steel propeller and range is assured with a large underfloor fuel tank.
As the pictures depict, the cockpit is open and roomy and we like how there is no bulkhead hindering access to the cabin which also makes the cockpit and cabin merge offering spaciousness. With high top sides providing plenty of freeboard to keep the young ones “in” the boat and generous beam for stability at rest. Seating for 4 adults is provided and if fishing only two up, the stern quarter seats are easily removed for better access to the aft corners.
The cabin is light and airy along with storage provided under the bunk cushions and in the storage pockets. The cabin also has upholstered cushions, so if after lunch the little ones need a lay down this would make an ideal place for a kip and enjoy some down time. The cabin hatch is large allowing a larger adult simple access to the bow where the ground tackle is stored.
For the fisherperson in the family, you will love the large bait preop and storage table that has been fabricated at the transom and there is a number of rod holders fitted. On the dash a quality 7” colour screen combo Lowrance Elite 7 HDI GPS/Fishfinder is installed and this also includes the mapping card as a further bonus! A GME VHF radio is also installed providing back to base and boat to boat communications.
Overhead a quality bimini top provides shade form the midday sun and this easily folds down if needed for storing purposes. Another bonus is the fitted front and side clears adding another level of protection from wind/spray and rain.
Trailering is simple via the multi roller Swiftco single axle trailer that marries to the hull like a glove. The trailer is fitted with mechanical override disc brakes for your on-road towing safety and alike all trailer sold through JCM this will be checked/repaired/adjusted to ensure you tow away in confidence.
If you are the market for a quality late model half/cuddy cabin fiberglass package with a late model “new generation” outboard, then this one owner rig, in as new condition, will tick all your boxes. Priced to sell at under $30K tow away, further backed with all the reassurances that JCM provides you can’t go wrong with this one.
