Interest Ahead of Australian Stabicraft 1750 Frontier Launch

'The new Stabicraft 1750 Frontier is designed to appeal to those who desire a big volume centre console with plenty of space and functionality. - Stabicraft 1750 Frontier Launch'    Tim van Duyl    Click Here to view large photo

Stabicraft Marine will launch its new 1750 Frontier to the Australian boating public at the upcoming Sydney and Brisbane Boat Shows and is to draw wide appeal, especially from the soft bait fishing fraternity.

Designed with fishing in mind, the Stabicraft 1750 Frontier is a result of the rise in popularity of ‘soft baiting’ and will appeal to those who want an open and clutter free layout in a centre console with true stability and rough water capability.

'We targeted a specific price point and style of use (soft baiting) and manufactured a boat from there. Already recognised by numerous sales in New Zealand before its official launch in Australia we are particularly proud of the value the 1750 Frontier offers customers,' says Australasian Sales Manager, Sean McColl.

'Softbait fishing can be very productive in the shallower waters around rocks and reefs. The all alloy construction of the 1750 Frontier makes the craft more robust and resistant to damage when targeting gullies and around rocky headlands.'

Like all Stabicrafts, safety is a key feature. The 1750 Frontier features continuous tubes of individually sealed flotation chambers providing a ‘Life Ring’ of 1515 litres of buoyancy on the upper-outer extremities of the boat. With the addition of an airtight chamber between the floor and the hull, these boats are virtually unsinkable. At rest, the GII Pontoon design sits in the water, giving increased stability for when anglers are moving around the cockpit.

The GII Pontoon gives the 1750 Frontier plenty of freeboard. The slimmer pontoon shape also provides increased internal beam whilst the turned down chines means those onboard will have a dry, soft ride.
Internally, the wide walk around floor and practical transom optimises space for fishermen to give 360 degree casting capabilities. The simple wash down layout means it is a very easy boat to keep clean.

Plenty of storage space has been a key design aspect of the 1750 Frontier, with storage shelves along both sides of the cockpit as well as a dry storage locker under the helm console and in the padded 105-litre esky bin seat.

Additional features include: high gunnels for greater confidence moving around the boat, a flat non trip floor, coaming grab handles for passengers when underway, 6 rod holders, bilge pump and anchor well.

Options include a live bait tank, front console seat, hydraulic steering, paint and graphics.

'Dealer feedback is very positive and we expect to see most of our dealer network stocking 1750 Frontiers before the summer months.'

'With any of the major engine brands’ 70-75hp outboards, a customer can drive away with a boat, motor, trailer package for less than AUD$38,000 (NZD$40,000), something we feel the market demanded.'

The Stabicraft 1750 Frontier will be on display at the Sydney Boat Show, July 28 - August 1 and the Brisbane Boat Show August 25-28.
