THIS BOAT PACKAGE DOES NOT INCLUDE A TRAILER HOWEVER WE CAN SUPPLY ONE AT ADDITIONAL CHARGE.
Australia has been a great test bed over the years for old made-for-the-lake American production boats. Whereas the bowriders sent here sometimes faltered over time, boats like this 2007 model Maxum are more mindful of the saltwater.
Great to find six stainless steel drinkholders, stainless steel supports for the tremendously sturdy five-piece safety-glass windscreen, stainless steel grabrails and stainless steel canopy fittings (bimini supplied).
The 1800 MX also had a great cockpit, with snap-in carpet adding to the comfort factor. Besides the aft quarter seats there was a snappy back-to-back passenger seat that easily converts to a sunlounge, thanks to a new lever mechanism. The old lift-and-tug seats were a pain and even this writer often wrestled with them.
Add the plush helm pedestal seat on one of those excellent Springfield bases, plus the bow seating, and you can carry up to six on the Maxum 1800 MX without needing to play involuntary Twister. Just as importantly in a small boat, storage is in great supply.
The 1800 MX has carpet-lined sidepockets, storage under the seats in the bow, where the bases are timber-free, but no dedicated anchor locker. However, it’s true that with boats like this you don’t need a lot of anchoring gear.
Importantly, the boat has a big underfloor storage hatch with room for wakeboards, skis and more, with a lid that lift on a gas strut. Ahead of the co-pilot is a glovebox with small icebox and overboard drain, plus the standard-issue JBL marine stereo with MP3 (iPod) jack and 12V (mobile phone) accessory plug.
