Opinions on 2004 QUINTREX 475 CoastRunner C.V

 

Hi

Looking at purchasing a 2004 Quintrex Coast runner C.V 

Millennium hull

 

Just wanted some thoughts on this boat! 

 

Also the motor is a 70hp Johnson 4 stroke with 334hrs 

Is this alot of hours? 

Some people are saying thats to many hours, but I thought that's not bad for the age of the motor? Plus it's got good service history? 

Any thoughts?

 

Cheers!

about the hours at all, boats had what a bit over 20 hours per year.  

They are a good reliable hull and a good starting point.

Buy it do the sums, 334

Buy it do the sums, 334 divided by 14 = 26hrs. I'd be moreworried about any sinkers or foreign objects

falling thru onto the  floor and causing pitting in the hull.

 I have 540 Coastrunner and also a Bayhunter 475 with the millenium hull. They are both ripper boats in mmy opinion and handle the sea very well. If serviced well and a reasonable price you can't go wrong.

Good stable hull thats easy to handle and cheap to run with a 70 johno/suzi 4st.

As for the hours on the motor itscoming up for its 5th oil change @ 400hrs and may have 1600 +hrs more trouble free.

The last suzi 4st I purchased had 864 hrs on it and i have put 800 hrs on in 4 yrs and it purrs like a kitten.

Prior to that I had a johno/suzi 140 2006 that had some corrosion issues, but the motor still ran like a dream @1950 hrs when i sold the boat.

Early johno/suzi 4 st can have problems in the different hp ranges. get on The Hull Truth and see what issues are showing up now .

Goodluck with your purchase .

Top boat. It all depends on

Top boat. It all depends on condition. You have to look at boat, motor and trailer seperately. There is a huge difference in prices depending on condition.  If you are truly keen get it checked out by an independent marine mechanic.   Low hours outboards may sound good but may be a nightmare.  You lose confidence in motors quickly if they dont run sweetly and then your looking at  around 12000 for a new motor.

Great boats

 I had a 480 Coastrunner and loved it, 20 mile off shore on a good day and cheap to run, mine had a 60 hp Yammy and I sold it with 1,000 hours. Never had a drama with it, just keep up with with the usual servicing. Check up under the dash for cracked welds. They hold their value as well which is a bonus when it comes to upgrade.
