Are you in the market for an affordable aluminum bow rider? Well the team at JCM have just landed this wonderfully optioned and well-presented Stessco FS540 Bowrider. As the pictures depict the boat easily lends itself to a spot of fishing or simply relaxing on the lounges from bow to stern.

Stessco boats are locally made here in SE Qld and make a great range of boats and the bowrider is one of the most popular social designs they make as it ticks so many boxes. The hull is very beamy which generates great stability at rest and has very high internal freeboard making safe when young ones are aboard. Re-boarding after a swim or a snorkel is easy as the transom is fitted with a boarding ladder and a transom door as pictured.

First Impressions
Powered by the ever-reliable Yamaha 115Hp Saltwater Series 2 stroke that has recorded a low 181 hours use. The JCM workshop has also completed a presale mechanical inspection and we back the motor with a limited BIA engine warranty for buyers confidence again why take the risk buying privately?

For the Skipper
The helm is comfortable with excellent viewing and the dash is well laid for the skipper with Yamaha digital engine gauges, a Humminbird 757C combo colour screen sounder/GPS providing fish finding and location along with a VHF radio and a stereo for those that like their tunes whilst afloat. Overhead a large bimini top provides ample shade from the midday sun and this easily folds down into the bimini sock out of the way when not in use or towing on the highway.  Also included are the clears, front and side curtains providing additional protection from the winds/spray.

On the Water
Seating up the bow is comfy with padded cushions and under the seating ample storage abounds for the safety gear and accessories. A bow cover is also included that covers this whole section when storing or boating in choppy waters.

The cockpit is large with seating for 5 provided and the rear lounge is cleverly designed with storage under and it appears to be lined making it a great little day ice chest for drinks etc.  For the angler in the family a bait board is fitted and a number of rod holders around the gunnel and overhead in the rod storage rack.

With an ATM of 1350Kg most mid sized 4WDs can tow easily within their towing limits.
