STYLISH AUSSIE SPORTS BOWRIDER – Stejcraft SS64

STYLISH AUSSIE SPORTS BOWRIDER – Stejcraft SS64

This summer, make your way to Wyld About Boats to view the new Stejcraft SS64. This boat has been designed with Australian bowrider enthusiasts in mind. The SS64 exhibits many unique features that make it an exciting sports runabout, while offering family comforts for relaxed weekend boating.

The Stejcraft local dealer principle, Hayden Wyld, knows what is required to choose a sport boat that is family-friendly, and combines powerful performance with capabilities to handling rough Australian conditions. Hayden, who comes from a family of ski boat experts, was previously a competitive water skier and is currently a successful Australian power boat championships driver. Wyld About Boats sell hundreds of trailerable boats each year from their Gold Coast boating warehouse.

While most US-built bowriders are designed for inland waters and not built for the rough and tumble of the Australian open waters. Stejcraft set out to make a USA-style, high quality bowrider specifically designed for Australian conditions. By manufacturing locally, they are able to keep the retail price lower than the USA imports, and control the quality of each boat they build. The SS64 is built tougher than competing sports boats in this class, and the boat looks absolutely world-class.

The company set out to build a cool looking boat, capable of rough inshore and offshore waters.

The SS64 is built to thrill, and will perform just as well as super expensive wake boats that you often see cruising up the river. With agile handling, this boat has the added capable of going offshore for extreme pleasure, like wave jumping, or the more placid whale watching.

EXCEPTIONAL AUSTRALIAN DESIGN

The SS64 is 6.4m in length and has a 2.45m beam that can carry 200lt of fuel in the tank. The spacious universal layout lends itself to any type of water sports you are undertaking, while offering luxurious comfort. The seating, easily able to accommodate eight people on board, are all deeply inserted into the cockpit for the safe feel when in an adrenaline-filled sports mode, or while simply relaxing.

The long and wide bow seating allows passengers to stretch their legs out, while making space for a porta-toilet under the front starboard seat cushion.

The very spacious cockpit features swivel bucket seats for the driver and main passenger, and a rear dicky seat behind the driver’s chair. The family friendly boat has an L-shape rear lounge on port side, and a unique rear seat on the swim platform. This truly dynamic design offers more storage than any other boat of its size. There are two large ski lockers, one aft and one forward. Further, there is a large storage bins in rear and another one behind the driver’s seat. The functional design includes a large anchor locker, which is separate from the cockpit, unlike many US-built bowriders.

The SS64 features a distinctive driver’s helm with two gauge sections on each side of the steering wheel, which are all finished with chrome bezels. The helm allows mounting space for a built-in 7” GPS sounder. A high quality stereo system is built into the dash connecting four speakers, well positioned around the cockpit, and a six-gang switch panel with spare switches for future accessories.

This boat is built of full composite with no wood used anywhere. The manufacturing process includes a foam-filled hull to meet strict US flotation standards, far more demanding than the Australian standards. The deck is built from a one-piece deck mold, unlike any other boat of its class in Australia.

The upholstery and stitching are the highest grade available using imported Spradling vinyl for durability and a stylish finish.

Offering outstanding maneuvering flexibility, the hull will not drop off the plane at a low speed, allowing for a young child to kneeboard at safe speeds. The hull also naturally creates a fantastic wake for the aspiring wake boarder. And most importantly, with a 21-degree dead rise, the hull makes easy work of those bad weather conditions, ensuring your family will get home quickly and safely.

OPTIONAL EXTRAS

The SS64 is available with various outboard engines, from 150hp to 225hp. The boat has a super efficient hull with oversized chines that hold the boat up on the plane better at a lower horsepower. The distinctive watersports package features a transom that allows continuous walk around with the same feel as you get in an inboard engine boat.

The boat colour schemes vary and there is plenty of opportunity to customise your boat. Wyld About Boats assure a very fast delivery time and are happy to discuss colour options to accommodate buyer special requests. For those thrill-seekers, the SS64 is available with a forward facing Fluid Core wake tower or a rear ski pole option. They offer as standard a Dunbier trailer, although recently, they are upgrading buyers to full-custom Easytow trailers for a cool look and style.

Before you make a decision, check the Stejcraft SS64. It’s the best all-round boat you can buy for your money, no matter what you feel like doing out on the water for the day. Wyld About Boats offer premium features at an affordable price, packed with versatile functionality. This is an easy handling boat that’s ideal for a family or watersports junkie.
