Another Caribbean Reef Runner build


I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to order my self a new Caribbean Reef Runner.

I looked at second hand boats for months then eventually bit the bullet. Anyway I know this has been done a bit but I found it useful for research, motivation and ideas to search the web for other builds. So here’s another.

I order a hull off Mansfield Marine.

Trailer off Tezzas Trailers in Port Kennedy (awesome)

and Outboard and electrical work from Midway Marine in Rockingham ( Legends)

I mounted all electronics and installed the Anchor winch and bilge pump.

Also clears and infill cushions from Canning Motor Trimmers. Thanks Shaun


Anyway , thanks for looking pics will tell the story

You'd probably be OK.

 They used to have a problem with tall people up the front with the hardtop, but the Extended Hardtop like mine gives me heaps of room, and I'm 6ft. Can't give you an exact amount , though, not at home to measure.

Very nice mate. I’d certainly be leaning towards a Caribbean if I won lotto, or robbed a bank or something.
