I was convinced that I had found the boat I was after

I spent a longtime researching plate ally boats back in 2014 when I was looking to upgrade from a pressed ally smaller open craft. I went to many manufacturers on the Gold Coast, North and South Brisbane and here where I live in Bundaberg. Then one day on my way back from Brisbane to home I came across Watsons Marine in Gympie not even knowing the Vindicator brand. They were fitting one up in the shed and I spoke with Glenn sometime ended up taking some brochures away. A quote or two later, another visit meeting Denise and Frank they took us for a run up to another local owner to see their 5.8m Vindicator, I was convinced that I had found the boat I was after. It was a step up in quality compared to the others I had looked at not just in the design but also in the finish of the boat & trailer. All I had to do now was convince the boss and save some more. Frank knew we were keen and an opportunity arrived where another client wished to sell their 5.8m. Vindicator and Trailer, Mel and I, Frank, Glenn, my mate Darren all rendezvous at Tin Can Bay to test run the boat. I saw it on the trailer before launch and it was already sold. They are certainly head turners and always get comments at any ramp. The test run went well and the boss was convinced ! The red 5.80m “ She saw Red” Vindicator & Trailer was ours. We unfortunately missed the full Vindicator build experience but we added quite a few modifications and extras onto the boat to customize it to our needs. Frank and the rest of the team were more than willing and able to meet our requirements. We have done many hours in our boat inshore and offshore, loading and unloading and always felt safe and comfortable as a couple. We fish mainly out of Burnett Heads and 1770. We do an annual camping holiday up to the Whitsundays and dive, fish and snorkel our way around the islands. The boat tows with ease on the Vindicator trailer up and back. The 5.8m is perfect for us as a fishing couple. We could not be happier with our Vindicator Boats & Trailers. Pic is Dugong Beach, Whitsunday Island Camp Ground
