Seriously, anyone that’s been genuinely researching a new side console sports fishing package doesn’t need updating on the costs of accessories and let alone the time associated with organising the tradesman to have them fitted. Yes, of course we know the base price of this rig in its base model guise but take the options list to any new boat dealer first and add up them up... before you know it you will be close to $52,000!
Our Dealership is located just 15 minutes from the Brisbane Airport and Gateway Motorway!
This “as new” package has been extensively fitted up as the ultimate fishing platform to enjoy all that boating and fishing has to offer in comfort and style. From a Waeco electric fridge, electric anchor winch, custom made drawbar mounted ladder – everything has been meticulously thought of, designed, installed and fitted to the highest standard.
The Gulf Runner 520 as per the manufacturer's webpage is one of their heavy-duty hulls made to get you up in the remote reaches of NQ and fishing out of a stable and versatile platform. If you are looking at models from Quintrex, Stacer, TABS or Clark you would be crazy not to come to John Crawford Marine and run your eye over this rig.
The boat was collected brand new in April 2019 and the motor was upgraded to the Mercury Pro XS four stroke EFI with a low 35 hours use that delivers exceptional power, hole shot onto the plane and economy. With approx 80L of fuel capacity under the floor, range is assured for those that like to venture further afield to the favourite fishing haunt. If you follow Mercury’s warranty servicing guidelines, balance of warranty will remain until April 2025 which is reassuring for any new owner.
The Mercury spins a stainless steel Trophy 4 blade propeller and steering is light as its been upgraded to a Ultraflex hydraulic steering system. The side console has been very well designed with comfort in mind and plenty of space to house the upgraded instrumentation and electronics comprising of Mercury's digital engine management screen and 2 Lowrance ELITE 9 Ti2 9” colour screen combo GPS/Sounders! It's an impressive display and one unit has the mapping card and the other links to the side imaging transducer.
The dash also houses the battery monitoring readout gauge, the Fridge monitor and the Fusion stereo which punches out a seriously good quality sound! Overhead a large bimini top offers plenty of shade form the midday sun and we can see the OCD detail in this as well with the red stripe added to marry the colour scheme of the red/black Pro XS outboard cowl colours!
The bow casting platform is huge and loads of storage bounds on the underside and this even houses the Waeco CFX 40 fridge that keeps your drinks and lunch cool – Boat manufacturers take note!!! Make this an option on your boats it’s a fantastic option. Anchoring could never be easer as a back saver is in place – the electric SAV drum winch is installed.
The transom area, well again, very well thought out and provisioned for the angler with an upgraded bait table – check out the detail! Storage hatches, high internal freeboard, anti-scratch pads and we love the walk-through transom and large boarding ladder.
Trailering is made easy on the quality Dunbier 5.3HD braked trailer that was manufactured brand new in February 2019. Like the hull the owner has chosen to fit numerous options including alloy dress rims and matching spare wheel, trailer catch and release, matching spare wheel and walk way to assist with launching and retrieving at the ramp – but don’t we love the walk on/off steps made on the drawbar – clever design and thinking yet again!
This is a “one off / unique” side console and will appeal to the brand-new boat buyer who doesn't have the time to set up like this and appreciates quality yet also demands a manageable 17 footer to get out there and go fishing in style and comfort!
