New Boat Suggestions


Recommended Posts

Hey Raiders,

Went out to Drummoyne on the weekend to have a go at getting my boat license. BOOYA 100% on the first go. Meaning i now have a boat license woop woop ! But problem is i still dont have a boat. I have got a few idea's of what i want in mind, but instead of saying which boats I like ill just give you guys details on what im after and how much im looking to spend and what i plan on doing with it, maybe you guys can give me some insight on the best way to go.

Basically im after a boat that I can use to fish all of our estuary systems, botany bay, all the harbour. So basically i dont wanna be restricted at all, I wanna be able to fish all around our waters without a problem. I also want a boat that on a good day I can take outside to some of the bigger fish territories and have a go. Also i want something in aluminium, that way if i do knock it around getting it on and off the trailer i wont hurt her too much, see with glass i got a fear that ill end up putting a whole in the boat before i even take it out. Im lookin to carry an average crew of around 3 - 4 people. I dont wanna have too many fellaz on my boat fishing at one time, just become's a big mess.

My budget atm is 10k but i dont mind stretching it a little if i find the right boat.

Cheers raiders,

You could also consider the Polycraft range. You can sometimes get good secondhand ones at a good price.



yeah could do, but i wanna know exactly what i can get for my price range, then ill start making decisions on which one I want.

Yeah seen a few nice polycrafts, most of the boats look the same just different brands and motor are different. Its very frustrating lol, but it will all pay off in the end.

Hi Jez,

Quintrex make a great aluminium boat as does stacer and savage - you cant go wrong with one of these either as a runabout or bowrider style. I have a quintrex bowrider which gives me heaps of felxibility to fish 4 comfortably and take it offshore on a good day.

Just make sure if you are buying second hand to get someone to check the boat and the motor over.

Good luck in your hunting.

Give Craig at Huett marine a call.

He'll give you a raider discount & at least you know what you're buying has been checked out by him.

He also has a great range of different styles of boats.

His details are HERE!
