Stejcraft 640 Monaco: Deluxe Performer

Stejcraft 640 Monaco: Deluxe Performer

The locally manufactured Stejcraft 640 Monaco is a deluxe overnight half-cabin that needs to be seen to be believed. Built by second-generation boat builder, Tim Catanese, and his team on the Gold Coast, the boat is very attractive to look at and the well-thought-out design makes it perfectly suited for weekends away along the upper reaches of the Broadwater.

The 640 Monaco is also ideal for families looking for a fun day-boat that offers cover from the elements. It is also the ultimate cross over as the boat makes a robust fishing platform. The hull design allows the boat on to the plane smoothly and the tough construction makes them suitable for offshore use.

The unique manufacturing process ensures a comfortable ride. The 2.5metre beam hull has 11 layers of fibreglass all working together, and every layer has a purpose: to provide long-lasting shine, prevent blistering, increase stiffness, dampen vibration, reduce weight, and add strength. With premium materials fittings and fixtures, from superior vinyl to high quality snap-in carpet, deep-reach swim ladder and stainless steel cleats, the materials that make it a Stejcraft will make you proud to own one. Most importantly, the boat is completely timber-free.

The boat’s designers have years of experience that is evident in the well-thought-out features. For instance, when using the boat for an overnight stay, there is a high carpet-lined headroom cabin below, and the cabin seating converts to a long-length bed that ensures a comfortable stay. A toilet is concealed beneath. An insect screen and canvas flap can button up to enclose the cabin, keeping the family warm and dry. The boat is fitted with a set of clears along the length of the windscreen, and a bimini covers the entire cockpit, with a rear flyscreen and another screen on the forward hatch.

Other standard features include an adjustable helm chair, two removable rear seats with storage, a walkthrough transom, rear pull-up cleats, and swim platforms with ladder. Best of all, the flat floor and cockpit surfaces have been designed for easy cleaning.

The dash at the helm has a modern black colour, which reduces the sun’s reflection. The gauges and multifunction screen add to a sleek look, as does the matching upholstery, optional hull colour stripe above and below the gunnel, and an OceanGrip no-slip floor covering option, which are ordered by almost all the customers. There is also a standard removable telescopic table and base, with LED lighting throughout the cabin and cockpit, which set the mood. Even the spacious multiple side storage pockets are lit for your nights out on the water.

As your co-pilot is always ready to assist, the sound system controls have been cleverly mounted ahead of the passenger seat. The passenger seat pedestal houses a sink that is easily accessible by folding the seat forward. A 60lt underfloor water tank provides water to the sink and shower.

The boat can be powered by a Mercury 135HP. For those looking for some high-end performance, the maximum power rating is 225HP, combined with the optional Active Trim feature, which automatically trims the motor as you accelerate and when slowing down, making the boat very simple to drive. There can be 200L of fuel possible in the underfloor tank.

There is an extensive warranty on the structural components of the hull and deck, which makes it one of the finest protection plans in the industry. The Stejcraft warranty on this model includes 5 years structural, 1 year on non-structural parts and components, and 1 year against cracking or fading of the gel coat finish.

This boat is world-class, and one of the smoothest running and best handling boats in its size range. At 6.4 metres, this may be a small cabin cruiser, but there is nothing small about this boat. Its wide beam design provides plenty of cockpit space and continues through the cabin, where two adults can easily stretch out for a good night’s sleep.

The 640 Monaco is a great performer. It is fast and efficient. Where it really steals the show is the quality fit-out, making it a real head-turner down at the boat ramp.
