MACKAY TRAILER

Boating NZ - - Review -

The CR 2600 is sup­plied on a heavy-duty Aus­tralian Mackay trailer. It’s a gal­vanised steel, dual-axle braked trailer, with in-car elec­tric-over-hy­draulic brak­ing con­trol, a spare wheel and a jockey wheel. It’s a cen­tre-roller, keel line de­sign with bunks, which, ac­cord­ing to Whit­t­ley, sup­plies bet­ter sup­port to the hull.

Al­though touted as a drive-on, drive­off trailer, it needs to be well-sub­merged to take ad­van­tage of this fea­ture, and driv­ing on is not al­lowed at many New Zealand boat ramps. It came off and went on the trailer eas­ily enough at Westhaven where the ramp has a de­cent gra­di­ent.

On the road, the rig weighs around 3.2-tonnes.
