** Sistership vessel shown. This vessel is fitted with many non standard features, options & accessories.

We recommend Mercury engine packages. We offer the latest range of Outboard models including: Optimax with Direct Fuel Injection, EFI and Verado 4 Stroke Supercharged.

Garage and Storage Heights

For our standard MacKay Trailer  PU57T-14-M (see below - Option 1)

Garage Storage Requirements:

Approximate storage measurements for our standard Caribbean Reef Runner package; sitting on our MacKay Tandem Road Trailer with 14 inch Wheels, fitted with a Mercury 175hp OptiMax Outboard are as follows:

  • Length: 7.90m – Measured from tow hitch to outboard skeg (when engine is titled forward to maximum position)
  • Width: 2.45m – Widest point
  • Height: 3.10m – Ground to the top of Reef Runner S/S Rocket Launcher (optional accessory, fitted to top of fibreglass HardTop)
  • Height: 2.90m – Ground to top of S/S hand-rail. Roof mounted to Fibreglass HardTop (standard fitting on Reef Runner)
  • Height: 2.66m – Ground to top of windscreen without HardTop. (A Reefy can be ordered without the HardTopRoof, if required)

Note: Our garage measurements are supplied as a guide only and were taken on our standard MacKay trailer with 14inch wheels and medium tyre pressure.

If storage space or garage height is a problem, we see that you have four choices;

1>  The Reef Runner can be factory built without the HardTop. Please call our office to discuss cost savings.

2>  Order a Reefy with a custom built MacKayTrailer featuring a drop axel and/or small diameter wheels and tyres.

3>  As a viable alternative to home or private storage, why not consider dry stack or trailer park storage, here at St Kilda Marina

4>  Increase the clearance height of yuor garage or strogare facility.

Besides, with the later you won't have to face constant lenghty delays at public launching ramps. Here at St Kilda Marina, you can use the private members ramps 24-7, where there's plenty of car parking and very quiet!!

The Trailer height component, is based on our standard & recommended Trailer, suitable for this type of vessel as per our vessel packages.

Advertised Packages including Vessel and/or Trailer Specifications, are subject to change without notice are are supplied as a guide only.

Tow Weight

Based on information supplied by our component manufacturers, below are individual weights for your information.

Option 1:

** Suitable for all Mercury Outboard models:  EFI, OptiMax & Verado excluding specifically the Mercury 200hp Verado Outboard.

Our deluxe MacKay Tandem Trailer (actual model KR60T-13-DEX)

** Suitable for all Mercury Outboard models up-to 200hp:  EFI, OptiMax & Verado Outboard.

No problems in going to a larger size outboard as the Caribbean Reef Runner will take up-to 200hp. However in doing so, this will effect the overall tow-weight of the boat and trailer package. 

By exceeding a total tow weight of 2,000kg's, Vic Roads requires you by law (interstater's must check with your local state registration authority) to have a trailer with a hydraulic / electric break-away system installed, and built to a different load specification than that of our standard Reef Runner trailer offering.

For this purpose, we reccommend the following MacKay purpose-built trialer with a GVM rating of 2,600kg.
