Bowrid­ers power up for days of cruis­ing

NT News - Motoring - - MARINE GUIDE - By MARK VOISEY

QUIN­TREX’S free­wheel­ing bowrid­ers have been fired up with stern-drive power.

The Free­dom Cruiser in­cludes four mod­els, start­ing with the en­trylevel 510 and all pow­ered by MerCruiser.

Bowrid­ers have al­ways had their fans — ver­sa­tile enough to be a fam­ily day cruiser, sports boat or fish­ing rig.

And Quin­trex has a de­cent slice of that niche since it de­vel­oped the Mil­len­nium-con­toured hull and turned its tin­nies into smooth-rid­ing and sound-han­dling craft.

The ad­di­tion of the MerCruis­ers means fru­gal boat­ing, with the bonus of a full open cock­pit and neat tran­som.

Quin­trex has added some frills to this range.

There are fea­tures such as a sun lounge, a non-slip duck­board for easy ac­cess and a bi­mini top.

Th­ese Free­dom Cruis­ers also boast an un­der­floor ski locker and a cen­tral ski hook to build on their sporty cre­den­tials.

The 610 runs to 6.93m with a 2.4m beam, and sports 4mm bot­tom­sides and 3mm top­sides.

Rec­om­mended horse­power is 190hp, but it can take up to 220hp.

It also gets a stereo, tele­scopic rear lad­der, car­peted floor, 120-litre un­der­floor fuel tank, deluxe seats and power steer­ing.
