About the Trailcraft Boats
The popular Trailcraft range of plate aluminium production boats has moved to China, following its purchase by the giant Chinese manufacturer Jiangyin Marine Equipment Manufacture Co. Ltd (JMEM Co Ltd). JMEM's commitment to Trailcraft follows their research into future trends in Asian and global markets which has identified a huge potential for the unique boat building design and manufacturing skills of Trailcraft. The Chinese purchased the entire range from 4.35 metres through to 8.00 metres with just about every combination of shape and configuration in between and in the process secured the CAD-CAM design skill-set and technology for all models - centre consoles, side consoles, bow riders, runabouts, cuddy cabins, sportscabs, and half cabs.
John Cocker from Hastings Marine, along with all other longstanding Australian dealers, recently visited the manufacturing facility in China and was 'blown away' by the sheer size and scope of the production plant. The same enormous facility that builds submarine parts, helicopters and general marine equipment with something like 5,000 employees under the same roof are now building Trailcraft aluminium plate boats.
Trailcraft introduced a standard of seaworthiness and ruggedness that has been their trademark for years. Trailcraft's aluminium plate fishing and dive boats come standard with the unique features Trailcraft is renowned for: true self-draining deck, full plate hull construction, transom door and dive ladder. Other standard features include underfloor fuel tank, bow & stern rail, drained anchor well, side pockets, compass, seating with storage, windscreen, live bait tank and rear locker.
Trailcraft offers one of the most versatile boat ranges available - offshore, lake, river or estuary fishing, diving, cruising and waterskiing, there is a hull to suit everybody.
