    Just been looking on the Quintrex website. I have noticed that they have just placed a 480 Trophey Hornet on the website. I was under the impression that they dropped the 475 Hornet from there list at the end of 2005.

    Maybe there has been an increased demand for it since the introduction of the PFD laws in VIC or the increased competition from Makocraft's 480.

    The 480 seems to have exct same specifications as the old 475 model.

    I am aware of that but Quintrex dropped the 475 towards the end of 2005.

    They also dropped the 480 for the past three months. They just added it back on the site late last week.

    The 480 has been released with a lot less features. When it was up last time it was the model up from the 475 with all the fruit for $38,000.

    Wasn't listed as the wildfisher. This was released in line with the boats from the AFC series. Wildfishers were discontinued by then. It was still on the Quintrex site just before the latest change.
