Sporty boating without breaking the budget


Boatbuilder Stacer said its 469 Easy Rider SVS bowrider is a great way to start living the dream, satisfying all boating desires from watersports to fishing to cruising on local waterways.

The manufacturer said this model is excellent for first-time family boat owners, describing it as being like handling a small car — easy to drive, park and load on to a trailer, while any family sedan can tow this lightweight boat.

Research and development manager, Craig Madam says the Stacer 469 Easy Rider SVS has a sporty look without breaking the budget, while the style and velocity of the EVO Series II Hull is second to none as it rips through the water satisfying the need for speed and keeping value in your wallet.

"It is a good package to start off with and get the family into boating, it is not too big, is easy to handle and very forgiving to drive," said Madam.

"It is important to choose the right boat when you are getting started, after a little experience and confidence then you can upgrade, if you like," he said.

The 469 Easy Rider SVS is fitted with a skipole-mount insert and the Mod Pod transom acts as a boarding platform allowing for easy in and out access, perfect for watersports, said Stacer.

Plenty of storage space allows this boat to be transformed into a fishing boat, already fitted with two rodholders, and optioned up with a casting platform infill, a cutting board and livebait tank, said the boatbuilder.

Stacer said the 469 Easy Rider SVS has a fresh modern look, new upholstery and rolled side decks, and accommodates five people comfortably.

The 469 Easy Rider, said Stacer, is a great all-round fun boat that any family will enjoy, prices start from $24,196 for a ‘Ready 2 Go Package,’ complete with boat, motor and trailer to get you straight out into the water.
