The Quintrex 460 Renegade: A customer testimonial
At Hunts Marine, the only thing that rivals our passion for boats is a commitment to the finest customer service possible. When someone first makes an enquiry about potentially purchasing a vessel, we'll guide them through the whole process from start to finish, leaving no proverbial stone unturned, and ensuring that the customer gets just what they are looking for.
This is one of the reasons people keep coming back to Hunts Marine, as they have done for 70 years - indeed, generation after generation of families return to buy a new boat for their household to enjoy. As it happens, one of our valued customers, Chris Bean, has just taken receipt of his fourth boat from Hunts Marine - a Quintrex 460 Renegade. We got in touch with him to find out just how he is getting along with his shiny new purchase.
What can you tell us about your Quintrex 460 Renegade?
Quintrex is a brand renowned for its smooth ride and exceptional performance, so it's no surprise that Chris is very happy with his new boat.
"I'm going to be completely honest with you here - I absolutely love it," he says. "This boat gives me everything I need to be able to do all the things I want to do, which is perhaps the most beautiful thing about it."
This seems to be something of a trend among Quintrex buyers, but just what is it about the boat that Chris enjoys?
The Quintrex 460 Renegade has plenty of space, making it a great choice for fishing and pleasure boating alike.
"It's tough for me to pick an absolute favourite part of my new boat, so I'll name a few. First of all, the space is excellent, and the ride really sticks out for me. It's fantastic through choppy water, and I fish a lot of inshore reefs, so this comes in particularly handy," Chris says.
"Also, simply the fact that everything is there, where it should be - it's the first boat I've ever had where I've had everything to hand. I don't have to stuff things into little holes, and the whole thing is just a real pleasure to use."
The Quintrex range is famous for its innovative Blade Hull, and the 460 Renegade is no different. It also comes equipped with an underfloor fuel tank, side pockets and extruded side decks, as well as a live bait tank - this is a vessel built for fishing.
Chris goes onto to mention that he's a keen fisherman, and he often likes to take his family (and dog!) out on the water with him. Though some fishing vessels may struggle to accommodate such numbers, the Quintrex 460 Renegade has plenty of space, making it a great choice for fishing and pleasure boating alike.
How did you come to choose this particular model, and how did Hunts Marine help?
"Initially, we went to the Trailer Boat Show to have a look at what was available. We met John Padman from Hunts Marine, and he completely understood where I was coming from. He didn't push me into anything, and helped me pick out a boat that was just perfect for my needs," said Chris.
"This is a boat that can be driven on and off the trailer, I don't have to lean over the front to lift the anchor up, as it is electric. The boat itself is beautifully put together, and John was superb, telling me what I needed to hear, not just what I wanted to hear."
"We'd get great updates from John, such as when the boat arrived, when the paintwork was being done, and when the extra fitting were attached."
Chris goes onto mention the pure professionalism shown by John once he had decided upon his new boat. The two were in constant contact throughout the entire process, with John regularly on the phone to keep Chris in the loop as to what was happening, and when it was happening. This ensured that Chris never felt 'out in the cold', as it were.
"At the show, it was exciting to buy the boat, but John made it just as exciting waiting for its delivery. We felt as though the excitement was prolonged for that period. We'd get great updates from John, such as when the boat arrived, when the paintwork was being done, and when the extra fitting were attached," he says.
"That's one of the reasons why i continually go through Hunts, as I get this kind of service every time I'm there."
It's this kind of praise that really motivates us to do our very best for Hunts Marine customers, and why Chris has ended up with a boat that will serve him and his family well for years to come.
