The new Hornet range including the F450, F481 and F500 models have received a brand new design sure to impress old and new anglers alike.  

The brand new F- Hornet is the ultimate fishing boat and now features a new bow design which sees the front casting deck expanded with improved storage space and stability.

With a wide beam of 2.1m the F500 Hornet offers great stability at rest and underway meaning your new Hornet will be your favourite fishing companion. 

As a member of the renowned Quintrex Hornet Range the new F500 Hornet is set up for the serious fisherman including rod holders, fishfinder and a 95L fuel tank as standard. 

Quintrex National Account Manager Cameron Wood said the F500 Hornet being such a popular model in the past had received a lot of attention after being officially released at the Sydney International Boat Show earlier this year. 

‘It is a significant design change that has really increased the storage, stability and size of the casting deck, I think long term Quintrex boat owners and people in the market for their first Quinnie will be very impressed with the boat,’ Cameron said.

‘And being rated up to 115hp there is plenty of power behind the F500 so you can load her up with your fishing gear without a problem.’

The F500 Hornet is available to option up with a bimini and envelope, bow mount thruster plate, live bait tank, rear ladder, rod storage pocket and burley bucket.

Quintrex is also exited to announce the new F500 Hornet will feature on the up-coming Season 15 of Escape with ET with the first episode airing on the 30th of November.

The F500 Hornet is available as a Quintrex Instant Boating Package including a boat, Quintrex trailer and Evinrude, Etec engine complete with three years factory warranty.
