2001 Rinker Fiesta Vee 242 Seller Description

This towable pocket cruiser and nearly-new trailer combination is the ultimate in big-boat fun for the family on a small-boat budget.

*** Note: boat and trailer can be legally towed by vehicle with 3.5T tow rating ***

This tidy and well maintained boat is equally at home in the marina with the big boys or on the road for holidays further afield.

Technically a 24ft boat, but feels much bigger with the added swim platform. It’s certainly big enough to comfortably sleep a family of four on the water with all amenities but small enough so that it can be serviced, cleaned and winter-stored on the trailer, saving you a packet when compared with a marina-bound boat.

When I was deciding to buy this boat, I found an independent review article on the web which you can download here:

Living in Melbourne, we’ve ‘overnighted’ many times in Docklands (especially in Jan for the tennis), Patterson Lakes and Queenscliff, and gone further afield to Lake Eildon, Gippsland Lakes and even Sydney Harbour. The money you can save in hotel fees pays for your boat upkeep!

Previous owner to myself was fastidious and fixed everything, and I’ve kept it up with regular servicing and a few additions to make day-to-day use that bit easier. Many receipts and bills to show no expense has been spared to keep this boat in such good condition.

Package includes the class-leading Transtyle Aluminium Trailer, purchased brand new in 2011, custom made for the boat, worth $12k all by itself. Tows beautifully, very stable, fantastic brakes. Axle weight for boat on trailer is around 3.2T. Weighbridge certificate available.

Happy to spend time with new owner on handover or even some training if new to boating. Boat is pretty easy to handle and can be launch/retrieved by one person – no winching, just drive on/off.

Holidays, weekends away, cruising, fishing, tubing, lazy summer days at the beach, NYE fireworks – live the dream!
