TICKET TO FREEDOM
Bowriders power up for days of cruising
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.
