Stacer 399 Proline

Stacer has released its new 399 Proline.

“The 399 Proline has come about due to customer demand for a small estuary-style boat with a 30hp rating,” says Damien Duncan, national sales and marketing manager.
Stacer has increased the length of the hull to give it greater engine capacity. The lower hull pressings have also been modified to include two extra round pressings for added strength.

With a carrying capacity of four, the 399 Proline measures 3.99m overall and 1.80m across the beam. Options such as a bimini and envelope, marine grade carpet, rod holders, fuel tank rack and extruded side decks are also available.

The 399 Proline comes as a Stacer ‘Ready 2 Go’ package with a 15hp Mariner outboard, Stacer trailer, safety gear, boat and trailer registrations and a three-year, factory-backed warranty.

The Ready 2 Go price is $5,915 (excluding dealer delivery charges).
