Boat for Sale

4m Quintrex Breezabout solid commuter $3400


Super strong build, 1980's Quintrex Breezabout, these things are about twice as heavy as the equivalent new ones and therefore much tougher. Tight as a drum and with a solid engine guard bar this hull is bulletproof and fully set up for commuting.

Motor is a 40hp 1985 Mariner (yamaha build and japan made) super reliable, starts immediately. Needs a replacement part to properly attach to the swivel pin and yoke, boat is drivable but this should be fixed before getting too excited, about $600 to fix and this has been knocked off the price. Otherwise in good nick.

Serviced / antifouled 6 months ago
Comes with a trailer if required.
Selling as we have upgraded to a bigger boat.
