Another wonderful entry level family / couple package has the boat yard with the arrival of this Stessco 439 Skipper DLX aluminium runabout that is well optioned to get on the briny with family or friends and enjoy a day's boating.
Overhead a large bimini top offers shade from the midday sun and when not in use this can be easily lowered and stored in the storage sock for safe towing or getting into the garage. Seating is comfortable for 5 with 2 pedestal seats for the driver and passenger and at the transom a rear lounge is fitted atop a large storage box.
The helm is comfortable with good visibility through the windscreen and atop of the dash a Lowrance Elite 5 DSI colour screen combo GPS/Sounder is neatly installed. As a bonus this unit also includes the mapping card saving you further costs. Over the perimeter of the windscreen a safety rail has been well positioned and this makes anchoring a little easier when the mid-section of the windscreen is opened for something to hold while deploying or retrieving the ground tackle.
Also fitted to the dash is the digital Yamaha engine gauges that indicate a low 56 hours of use on the 50Hp Yamaha outboard. The Yammy has been pretested to ensure you’re buying a quality outboard and its further backed with warranty for your buying confidence. The outboard has an oil injection system fitted along with power trim and tilt, features we all desire on the smaller outboards making skippering that much easier.
Trailering is made easy on the Stessco X4.2LS13 single axle trailer that marries to the hull like a glove. With an ATM of a light 600kg’s most mid sixed cars should be able to tow with ease and a short overall length means this rig again should fit in most modern garages for storing out of the weather. Like all trailers sold at JCM the trailer has been pretested and upon handover you can be reassured that the trailer has been serviced for you on road towing confidence. - why take the risk of buying privately and not know the condition of the wheel bearings/tyres or trailer lights??
What a great runabout and priced at only $16,500 tow away – summer fun here we come!
