Good afternoon crew,

I’ve tried being patient but now have to ask around; does anyone have any experience/thoughts with the new Quintrex apex hulls? I’m pretty curious to see how they handle the chop/swell offshore. There are a couple of YouTube clips with them but i would rather hear from anyone whose been in one. The forked nose does nothing (IMO) for the aesthetics but I think they would be pretty functional (for what i want) if the advertising is accurate...but how do they ride ? Thoughts? When I don’t see any around I get.... suspicious that someone knows something I don’t.

I spoke to Michael in service at IOM and he said he wouldn't recommend them for offshore as they ride similar to the Hornets . He said if fishing rivers and moving along the coastline they will be fine . He said they are very stable and 2 big blokes can stand on one side without it tilting .

bl..dy ugly front end on them

Thanks for the heads up - RE Coastal vs Bluewater fishing. I though it might be to good to be true that they handle the swell and chop offshore but have all of the benefits of a hornet in close. I’ll keep my dreams up for another day/boat model.

Yeah, my thoughts are that they are as ugly as sin. I went to the Sydney Boat Show last year as I'm looking at updating from our current 5m Top Ender, really want something plate, but figured I'd look at the new Top Ender. The response I got was pitiful, they had next to no Top Enders to look at, although they had dozens and dozens of Quinnies, and the guy there told me that they aren't pushing the Top Enders any more, just these Apex Hulls and Renegades.
I've loved my Top Ender, it's been part of the family since 2001, and has been a great boat, and I'd say nearly the driest boat I've been in. So for now, it's in getting a new Pro XS fitted, and I'll look further at hull options once we finish this years NT Trip, but it won't be an Apex Hull as we need a cross between inshore and offshore.
