5.5m Hire Boat
The 5.5m Bushchook is Exmouth Boat Hire’s smallest plate aluminum boat. Suited for 3 people fishing and up to 5 if notall are fishing it has ample shade. The boat is somewhat lighter than the larger plate boats and offers the flexibility of being able to launch with relative ease at Coral Bay Boat Ramp. It is ideal for those not wanting to venture too far out the back off the Coral Bay Coast and across Exmouth Gulf and allow for trawling, reef fising & diving. With its high gunnwhales and plenty of shade it assures you of a dry ride out of the sun.
All our plate and polycraft boats have forward cabins to protect you from the weather and seas that our coast can throw at you. Be wary of hiring cheaper alternatives that don't offer the forward cabin, shade and higher gunwhales. You will end up with a very wet and rough ride.
