Introducing the revolutionary Apex Hull!
After years of research, Quintrex has released the Apex Hull design set to revolutionize the boating industry. From humble beginnings in 1945 Quintrex has remained the leader in aluminium boat research and development for over 70 years. True to its name, the Apex Hull offers the pinnacle of boating with years of research and development leading to superior performance on the water – You have never seen a boat quite like this before!
Harder, Better, Stronger
- The Apex Hull not only provides ultimate on-water performance but are truly built tough to last with increased Hull strength created with 4mm bottom sheets and 3mm side sheets of pressed marine grade aluminium across the Frontier & Freestyler ranges. The 630 size models even receive a standard upgrade to 5mm.
The Apex Hull stands out as one on the most innovative and modern hull designs you will see on the water. The lines of the Apex Hull combined with the forked bow and sleek windscreen profile* provide a refreshing, modern look to aluminium boat design, one that has never been seen before that is for sure.
- All About the Ride
- The future of aluminium boating has changed forever as the Apex Hull delivers unbelievable on water performance created by a combination of these key factors:
The flare is carried further aft to maintain continual contact with the water when on the plane creating an even, smooth ride.
The wider, sweeping chine design opens the front of the hull to allow the flaring to carry further forward up the stem line, consequently improving rough water performance. By widening the chine on the Apex Hull, Quintrex have achieved increased stability and grip when cornering.
The increased surface area at the bow of the Apex Hull provides much greater lift, ensuring a level attitude.
- More Room – 20% Internal Volume Increase
- The Apex Hull keeps giving with even more internal room making sure it is one of the most user-friendly hulls on the market.
- The new RSD (Raised Side Decks) featured on selected Apex models is fully-welded and increases the overall internal volume of the boat by 20%. The new RSD also increases freeboard by 80mm, offering extra comfort, safety and fishability. Combine this with a compact side deck design which maximises internal width in the Apex Hull.
- The overall footprint of the Apex Hull has increased by 5%; the forked bow creates room for a large bow seating area on Freestyler models and a large casting platform on Frontier models.
When you buy a Quintrex you’re spoilt for choice! We’ve added two more designs to our range of vinyl wraps. Constructed from uv-stabilised laminated vinyl and applied during the production process, there’s no better way to make a statement on the water!
“Camouflage” Wrap - sneak up on your next catch in ‘military green’ (shown above), ‘navy blue’, ‘autumn orange’ and ‘Snow’.
“Ice” Wrap - stay cool with this design available in blue (shown above), aqua, black, green and red.
Cuts Like A Knife - Out with the old and in with the new! For over 60 years Quintrex has pioneered the use of stretch forming technology to bring boaties the smoothest riding designs on the water, and this year is no exception! The new Blade Hull has done away with old style ‘clinker’ side pressings in favour of a ‘smooth look’ side sheet. Advanced stretch forming technology combined with the strength of pressed aluminium side sheets bring you the smoothest looking… and riding… hull on the market. The new Blade Hull is our most advanced hull design yet and is now featured across the majority of the Quintrex range.
NEW DASH & RAISED TOP DECK
Quintrex have made some dramatic changes to improve the overall look and ergonomics of their new Lazeabout and Cruiseabout range. To create a more modern and sportier look, Quintrex have introduced a new raised top deck and complemented it with a low profile wind screen. Reminiscent of models in the early 80’s, these new top decks are far more advanced; created from a composite material previously used in the automotive industry and transformed for marine use.
This UV-stabilised material is moulded into the perfect height for optimal visibility through the windscreen – it’s this sort of attention to detail you can really appreciate when in the driver’s seat. Combine that with a new dash design that allows more room for the mounting of larger electronics and being the skipper has never been more enjoyable!
NEW REAR LOUNGE
Featured across the new range of Lazeabouts, Cruiseabouts and Ocean Spirits, our new rear lounge means you’ll have plenty of room for relaxation and fishing. This new design delivers on style, comfort and practicality - a wide comfortable seat combined with a supportive backrest at just the right height and the freedom to fold it all away without eating up cockpit space.
All it takes is a simple lift and pull, and the rear lounge folds back into the transom and flush with the backrest, creating an excellent combing cushion and maximum cockpit space. It’s set to be the best seat in the house… we mean boat…
Quintrex make the biggest-little-boats on the market, and we’re always searching for new ways to squeeze every extra inch of usable space out of your boat. Often an over-looked area of a boat, having a well configured transom is essential to any boat design. Our new transom design actually increases the internal space by 180mm, combine that with concealed cable guides and you’ve got a more efficient clutter free boarding platform.
DRIVE ON TRAILER DESIGN
Being specialists with aluminium, it seemed only fitting to release a new range of aluminium trailers. Designed specifically to cradle the Quintrex hull, our new designs are more rigid and corrosion resistant. The new frame is constructed using rolled aluminium I beam for improved rigidity and reinforced skid posts for durable towing. It’s also easier to adjust your axle position for optimum tow-ball weight distribution.
A new drive-on cradle guides the boat correctly onto the rollers and up onto frame every time. No matter what angle you drive onto your new trailer, the cradle will correct and guide the hull to load correctly and efficiently, even in wind and cross current. Now, retrieving your boat is far from being a chore, it’s become so easy you can do it yourself!
NEW F-HORNET RANGE
The new beloved Quinnie Hornet has undergone a dramatic redesign and the result is sure to impress old and new anglers alike.
The result: the new F450, F481 and F500 Hornet. These machines are the ultimate fishing boat and now feature a new bow design which sees the front casting deck expanded and improves storage space.
