Quintrex Dory Blade 520 + Yamaha F60hp 4-Stroke boat review

We’re calling out for all the crab fishermen and large tinnie fans out there because this is the king of all tinnies. The legendary Dory 520 with a Millennium/Blade hull.

Those who are lucky enough to own a 520 Dory just keep them. They are extremely rare on the used boat market.

The big difference with the Quintrex Dory Blade 520 is all in the hull, it boasts Quintrex’s famous Millennium Hull, now known as the Blade Hull, which is the softest, driest, and most stable hull available on the market.

Powered by a Yamaha F60hp 4-Stroke makes this package measly on fuel, powerful, efficient, and reliable. It really is the best of everything when it comes to a Tinnie. The Multi functional tiller handle is the top of the market and includes heaps of features, such as idle up and down, perfect for trawling or cruising along a bank.

This outboard pushes along the boat without effort. Reaching a high top end speed whilst using little fuel. How does getting to and from Tangalooma for $10 sound?

The Dory is built tough. Quintrex add lots of areas of reinforced strengthening and have more ribs per foot than other brands. Brisbane Yamaha’s technicians have fitted the boat up neatly and professionally. The work Brisbane Yamaha do will last the life of the boat.

The 520 Dory is beamy…seriously wide, perfect for storing heaps of crab pots or fishing gear.

As you can see in the video, the Blade Hull handles chop with ease. The ride is smooth and dry. Compare this to a standard hull!

About Gary Brown

I have been fishing from a very early age (around # to 4) in the estuaries from Qld to Victoria for bream, whiting, mullet, flathead, leatherjackets, john dory and luderick. Having owned my first boat at 12, I was able to fish further afield in many different estuaries up and down the NSW coast with my dad. In my early teens I started to fish from the beach for bream, whiting, tailor and salmon and then progressed onto the rocks for bream, trevally, tailor, salmon, drummer, luderick and snapper. I also targeted snapper, morwong, other reef species off shore, plus a variety of tuna. In his teens Gary brought his first boat and started fish out to sea on the south coast of NSW where he could chase snapper, tuna, morwong, pinkies, leatherjackets, mulloway, bonito and many other fish species. Over the past 22 years I have been teaching many anglers how to improve their fishing ability in my “How, Where, When and Why to Fish” classes throughout tackle shops in Sydney. In 2002 I had my first book published (Fishing Sydney’s Waterways) by AFN and it has been revised 3 times. Since then I have now had 4 more books published: 2005 Beach and Rock Fishing Australia. 2010 Fishing guide to South of Sydney. 2011 How to catch Australia’s Favourite Saltwater Fish. 2013 Land based Fishing GUIDE FOR Sydney Harbour. I have also produced along with Scotty Lyons 2 dvd’s; A Day on the Bay and Port Hacking – The Jewel of the South. Over the past 11 years I have successfully competed in a number of bream tournaments. Ranging from ABT, BETS and the Southern Bream Series. I am currently sponsored by the following companies: Pure Fishing/Pflueger/Shakespeare now for 22 years as one of their Pro Anglers. Australian Fishing Network (AFN) Tackle Tactics. Strike pro.

About Scott Mitchell

I have been fishing since I was 8 years old – some say obsessed. Originally from the Illawarra, just south of Sydney NSW Australia. I grew up fishing for anything with fins (and sometimes without). I have many fond memories of fishing in Lake Illawarra ,Warilla Beach , Barrack point, Bass point and from the front of Windang Island as a kid. I spent my teenage years land based game fishing from just about every ledge along the NSW coast from Coffs Harbour in the North to Green Cape in the South. Some of the most memorable fishing I have done to date was on the stones doing battle with large tuna and marlin.I picked up my first fly rod in 1989 - a #9wht outfit which I used to catch tailor , salmon, frigates, luderick, bream etc while waiting for a run on the big gear. I now enjoy fly fishing when ever the oppertunity arrises with over 150 species on the long wand to date. http://www.scotto.com.au/
