Description: Sandy Straits Marine Tri 4.5 CC
John Crawford Marine has just landed this stunning near new Sandy Straits Marine Tri 4.5 CC that is powered by a Suzuki 30Hp four stroke and trailered on an aluminium framed trailer!

This design would make for an excellent fishing boat or a tender to a larger mothership. Stable, quiet and has shallow draft to get up into the shallows to throw the cast net, drop the pots and fish the flats.

Made here in Queensland, this unique package is marketed by the builder as a "resin infused vinyl ester in a basalt fibre 400g twill. The lay up is in E glass 600D/byes. The sides are 80kg 5mm scored and pinned foam. As this provides superior strength and excellent anti osmosis properties. The hull transom is made of Coosa board. 20mm thick x 2 layers, covered with basalt fibre x 4 layers or E glass 600D/byes. The boat is made entirely of non rot material making it a boat that will last and last. "

The manufacturer states "We have used, in our floors, a light weight, but strong, high density foam. This glassed over, makes for a even tougher boat with added buoyancy. We also have foam under the floor and in the top deck for more buoyancy. "

From a laymens perspective, well built, that provide the occupants a stable and dry ride in smooth waterways.

Powered by a four stroke 30Hp EFI Suzuki that has recorded a low 49 hours use, confirmed by JCM workshops pre testing and ECU computer report. The Suzy has both electric key start and has manual start option in the event of battery failure. One would hope not as this package is fitted with a dual battery system for redundancy.

The Suzy is nimble and efficient pushing either a solo boatie or a couple along at an economical 16 to 20 knots in comfort. Sipping fuel via the 24l fuel tank. The boat is well thought and fitted as even a fuel/water separator has been installed and housed under the transom cover plate.

All about fishing and a quality Raymarine Axiom 9" colour touch screen combo sounder/GPS has been installed. These units have a vast array of features fitted and further has built in Navionics mapping and is linked to a RV300 transducer that has been professionally installed under the boat on the keel line as pictured.

The console also has fitted a VHF radio, 5 gang switch panel, 12v power outlet, storage underneath and a wind deflector screen. When not in use, the console and Prowave double seat have a custom made cover to help shield from the weather.
