Re­vamp adds ex­tras

NT News - Motoring - - CARS GUIDE -

QUIN­TREX Top En­ders are de­signed for the trop­i­cal north of Aus­tralia.

This iconic range of boats has de­vel­oped since the mid-1990s and has be­come a house­hold name in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory.

The 470 Top En­der suits an­glers who want to reach smaller creeks and the re­stricted tidal ar­eas while still be­ing able to of­fer a great ride in the har­bour and fur­ther off­shore.

Quin­trex’s ex­clu­sive Mil­len­nium flared hull is the key to this range’s great suc­cess. The hull’s con­cave shape cuts through the wa­ter with ease while de­flect­ing and turn­ing away any spray that would nor­mally be thrown out by a harder-rid­ing, round­ed­bot­tom hull shape.

Pow­ered by a Yamaha F60 EFI four-stroke mo­tor, this pack­age com­bines a smooth, quiet ride with eco­nom­i­cal per­for­mance to make trolling for bar­ra­mundi from dawn un­til dusk an ab­so­lute plea­sure.

The side con­sole con­fig­u­ra­tion of the Top En­der al- lows an­glers a large open cock­pit for fish­ing and fam­ily boat­ing.

There is room for overnighters want­ing to linger in a favourite fish­ing spot to roll out swags.

The Quin­trex team boasts it has con­tin­ued to lis­ten to its cus­tomers, and in re­sponse to feed­back it has re­vamped the 2011-12 Top En­ders to in­clude:

Larger side stor­age;

Ad­di­tional open un­der­floor stor­age, in­clud­ing in the raised cast­ing plat­form;

A newly de­signed sports side con­sole that al­lows for stor­age of larger Es­kys; and

A new-model tran­som live bait tank.

The Top En­ders also come fit­ted to a cus­tom al­loy trailer de­signed and man­u­fac­tured by Quin­trex.

They should out­last a con­ven­tional gal­vanised steel trailer.
