Excellent Coastal Day Boat with pair of Yamaha Outboards…

If you’re considering a trailerable fishing boat-come-day cruiser like a Trophy, Quicksilver, Galeon Galia, Boston Whaler or a Warrior then you really should take a close look at what this Campion Explorer 542 can offer.

We last sold this boat to the current owner in May 2020, when it had 400 hours on the clock.
Having used the boat for 16hrs this summer, the owner has decided to upgrade and has put the boat back on the market.
The video and photos that you see here were shot in Spring 2020, but the boat has now arrived back with us and is looking every bit as good today. Contact us for a current virtual viewing.

This Campion Explorer can even serve as an occasional water sports tow boat for the kids. With her removable ski pole, swim platform & boarding ladder, plus 150HP on tap for pulling skiers out of the water, it really does make this boat an excellent family all-rounder.

The spec level on this Campion 542 Explorer is also second to none…

Whether it’s a fishing boat that you’re after, or a family day boat, or a small overnighter, this boat can do it all.

Her comprehensive spec includes a Garmin GPS Colour Chartplotter & Fishfinder, a Navman VHF Radio, Clarion Stereo and full set of Camper Canvas Covers plus Tonneau Cover.

There’s tons of storage throughout the boat, and being a Campion the build quality is outstanding.

Her high gunwales and self-bailing decks make her a very safe and secure sea boat, which you can safely leave on a mooring if needs be.

And she boasts the performance and reliability of a pair of fantastic Yamaha Four Stroke outboards. The Yamaha 150HP main engine is the maximum rated horsepower for the hull and has run only 416 hours from new. And there’s a matching Yamaha 4HP Auxiliary Engine for added safety and peace of mind. There’s enough power to get the boat on plane quickly and run effortlessly and efficiently at 25 knots.

Having the security of the back-up engine, with it’s own integrated fuel supply,
is a major source of peace of mind, especially if you’re using the boat in coastal waters.

The boat comes complete with it’s own single axle UK spec roller coaster trailer and is very easy to tow, launch and recover.
