Now sold - more late model Cruise Craft and Signature bow riders wanted.
Make selling your boat simple and hassle free through John Crawford Marine. Ph 3890 2322 "Established since 1964"
Each year, John Crawford Marine sells numerous quality, late model trailer boats, however there are always a few standouts for a multitude of reasons – condition / history / design / presentation / set up / practicability / aesthetics and the unexplainable “shiver” of excitement a boat can give you…
Well this stunning, one owner since new, 75 hour old, freshwater use Cruise Craft Resort 55 ticks all these boxes and so many more….
You have to look for yourself in the bilge, under the bow cushions and underfloor storage hatches to truly appreciated this garaged rig that has come into JCM from some 600k’s SW of Brisbane…
The flexibility of boating that a quality bow rider offers makes this Cruise Craft Resort 55 a popular choice for water sports families. As Cruise Craft states in their own words “Roomy, stable, mild mannered and an exceptional performer that is the delight of boating aficionados, the Resort 55 can be seen on waterways virtually everywhere in Australia” and we couldn’t sum it up any better in words ourselves.
Comfortable and socially designed upholstery, carpeted throughout, overhead sun shade and bow lounge again with lavish seating for the children and fellow thrill seekers to enjoy when underway.
One thing often lacking in bow riders is storage – for the safety gear and ropes and importantly, the anchor! The locally made Cruissy nails this issue with abundant storage from bow to stern as pictured.
Fitted with the maximum rated 175Hp Evinrude ETEC outboard, performance is exhilarating for the water sports enthusiasts and those families that enjoy water skiing at speed.
The ETEC has just had its annual service completed prior to listing and computer testing verifying its low 75 hours recorded use. The motor is in stunning and mechanically near faultless condition spinning a stainless steel Viper prop and steering is light as a Seastar hydraulic system is fitted. Range is assured with an underfloor fuel tank of approx. 160L capacity.
JCM further backs the Evinrude with a BIA warranty for buyers further confidence removing the risks associated with buying from the private classies.

Trailering is made easy as the hull sits atop a Cruise Craft / Redco Sportsman RE180T-MO tandem axle, multiroller trailer that marries near perfectly to the hull. Not only an exceptional choice for highway towing but the ease to launch and retrieve on these trailer sets them apart from many other trailers.
Featuring walk way for added safety, spare wheel for on road towing safety and backed with the knowledge that JCM has had our own workshop go over the trailer to ensure it meets road worthy and our high standards advancing your towing interest once purchased – reassurance and service you don’t get from buying privately.
If you are in the market for an Australian made and very special summer/social/ski boat then look no further as opportunities like this are very rare and seldom present themselves unless you pay top dollar for a brand new outboard powered bow rider.
