Quintrex is name synonymous with industry leading quality, aesthetics, history, and the revolutionary Blade/Millennium hull shape that is the defining difference of this brand compared to others.
R&D is a sign of strong company, especially one that produces recreational products knows they can never sit on its hands, and Quintrex knows this, as they are continually updating, modernising, and making their boats more functional and practicable for family boating.
This Quintrex 430 Fishabout Pro was purchased new in November 2020 and has provided the previous family a memorable, 121 hours afloat - exploring the bay, fishing both the freshwater impoundments and inshore bay with family and friends.
As a first boat, the Quintrex runabout is quite simply the pick – it’s easy to launch and retrieve, very economical top run, offer a class leading ride with the unique Quintrex “Blade” hull and provides a comfortable ride in choppy waters.
For a boat of this size, it offers a generous beam with deep internal freeboard, a large cockpit and we love the addition of the boarding ladder - easy reboarding after a swim… of and did we mention the angler in the family isn’t left out either!
As the photos depict, this 430 Fishabout Pro is fitted with an upgraded Yamaha 60Hp four stroke rather than a 50Hp, and the 60Hp provides ample power to push the family across the boat whilst sipping fuel.
And right now, economy has never been so important! The Yamaha has been both mechanically and computer tested and has balance of factory warranty remaining until November 2024.
Would you like to tube/toboggan and the kids try their hand at water skiing? Well this rig at the time of order was fitted with a stainless steel ski pole! The boat abord neatly sits over the top and be quickly removed if a ski ride is on the cards.
Quality sun and weather protection with an overhead bimini top (storage sock is included), front and side clears have also been fabricated and installed. A boat and engine storage cover is also included as a bonus.
Seating for 5 is provided and we love the upgraded driver and passenger seat incorporating high backs and bolsters for improved comfort.
The dash is well laid out with 2 digital Yamaha engine gauges, a Lowrance Hook Reveal 5 ts colour screen sounder/GPS and this has been linked to an upgraded to include as fitted the “Side and Down” view transducer, that the angler in the family will love to use. Also an ICOM ICM330 VHF radio is installed for boat to boat and back to base communications for on water safety.

Trailering is made easy as the rig sits atop a Quintrex TELASMALL2 aluminium framed trailer and marries to the hull like a glove. Dressed with white plastic guards and side lights, looking smart whilst sitting still and more importantly like all trailers sold through JCM regardless of age, they are workshop tested/serviced and adjusted to provide you towing confidence.
If you are in the market for a Quintrex / Stacer / Seajay or Stessco, then make a bee line to JCM as this Quintrex 430 Fishabout Pro won’t last long!
