First Impressions

Trailcraft boats are well regarded as an honest boat with attributes seldom found in similar sized vessels like a fully sealed and welded floor, that is a great safety feature knowing you don’t have to rely on a battery powered bilge pump to drain the bilge!  With generous beam, high topsides and deep internal freeboard these boats have class leading dimensions and yet still provide a comfortable and dry ride when underway. The cockpit is huge for a 5.4m boat, along with a large and airy cabin. 

Overhead plenty of shade is offered with the bimini top and additional cockpit extension cover. We like how an access zip has been added for ease of access to the rod holders built into the targa. For added weather protection front and side clears are also included.

The cockpit also offers a walk-through transom and generous sized boarding platform and class leading boarding ladder. Making it an easy affair to re-board after a swim or when loading the rig at home for the day’s outing.  Side pockets run each side again keeping the deck uncluttered and under the drivers and passenger seats is further storage.  In the transom is a huge live bait tank and neatly in their own locker in the dual battery system along with battery isolation switch = great design.

For the Skipper

Sitting at the commanding helm chair, all the electrics and engine instrumentation is in easy view and the dash is fitted with a huge 10” colour screen Lowrance HDS 10 combo GPS/Sounder. Resolution is exceptional, and the transducer for those that love fishing is the Structure Scan side view LSS1 transducer. A GME G-COM 27 meg radio is also fitted for communications and glove box and ample dash space for accessories.

On the Water

The cabin is large enough for two adults to bed down for the night under the padded cushions are further areas to store your gear and the like or along the side pockets. There is room for a chemical toilet if one was needed (not supplied) and the cabin is light and airy with a large ventilation hatch.

The Motor

The rig was repowered in 2013/2014 with a 115HP Suzuki four stroke motor delivering exceptional performance and range as it’s fueled by approx. 120L underfloor fuel tank and spins a quality 4 blade stainless steel propellor.  Fuel is delivered via the external transom mounted fuel/water separator, steering is light with no feedback as a quality Sea Star hydraulic steering system is fitted.

On the Trailer

The trailer was also replaced and upgraded in February 2014 from a single axle trailer and to a tandem axle Dunbier R5.7T multi roller trailer that now provides an excellent platform for highway towing. The design allows the experienced skipper to easily launch and retrieve and or, drive on /off at the right ramp. The trailer is fitted with mechanical override disc brakes and includes a spare wheel for added on road towing safety. Like all our trailers sold you can be reassured they are serviced prior to handover to ensure your on-road towing safety. Why risk buying privately and not know the condition what you are buying?

NB: The hull has been amateurly touched up in a few places with touch up spray paint, nothing that we can see that is hiding anything, just (sorry previous owner) not perfectly, and our camera just can’t pick this up with a white hull and the summer bright sun. So, upon inspection please remember we have stated this.
Terrific Trailcrafts!

These rigs offer superb bang for your boating buck and is well worth an inspection if you are on the hunt for a quality branded make like Trailcraft and wanting that crossover package conducive to boating/fishing and family use. At $39,995 backed with all the assurances our established Brisbane based used boat dealership offers as outlined further, why risk buying privately?
