In the market for a new boat......

Post by Blinky » Thu May 24, 2018 2:21 pm

I'm looking at getting a new boat, sadly will be parting company with the Hydracraft....

On the cards are a 580 Tomahawk Territory Offshore, Quintrex 590 Frontier and a 570 Territory Legend

I'm leaning towards the Tomahawk.......

Any thoughts on either of the boats welcome.

BLINKY if you like driving a brick down the river or in the blue water you cant go past the tomahawk ,they would be the worst riding boat I have been in . I own a Quintrex Topender Tournament which is nearly the same as the legend and I cannot knock the boat as an all rounder. If you order one you can pay a little extra to have the Gunwales fully welded which will help with oxidation as the moisture get in between the paint and alloy where it hasn't been welded . Michael from in and outboard marine said the Frontier is only a river boat and would struggle in the Darwin chop . PM if you have any more questions

Ha I was going to mention how the Quinnies would be lighter boats compared to the Formosa due to the money saved in welding rods...

Territory legend is a good all round boat.

I know you are asking about three boats in particular.

Do yourself a favour and get a glass boat. They are better in every single way. I am guessing you are spending some money based on those options. Should pick up a used glass boat in your range.

Trust me you won't look back!
