Ex­plorer can han­dle deep

NT News - Motoring - - CARS GUIDE -

THE CruiseCraft Ex­plorer 595 has been built for the hard-core recre­ational fish­er­men who head way off­shore to the deep blue wa­ters where game fish run.

This is a new gen­er­a­tion de­sign which features a finer en­try up along the stem cre­at­ing a deeper and more heav­ily flared bow.

As a com­bined package of features, boaters will ap­pre­ci­ate the softer and dryer ride.

While the proven CruiseCraft hull ge­om­e­try con­tin­ues, the Ex­plorer 595 has a host of new features.

A new sleek deck pro­file has been cre­ated and tooled.

This in­cor­po­rates a re­cessed toe rail for safe ac­cess to the bow.

In­side the cock­pit there is a ful­l­length pat­terned fi­bre­glass floor liner that ex­tends up the sides to just un­der the gun­wale, new-style bucket seats with re­vised up­hol­stery de­sign, a mod­u­lar dash panel which ac­com­mo­dates large-scale elec­tron­ics and a rear un­der­floor stor­age tank.

Tech­ni­cally, the CruiseCraft Ex­plorer 595 boasts a true hull length of 5.95m or 6.35m over­all if the bowsprit is in­cluded.

The Ex­plorer 595 has a beam of 2.44m and is just 1cm nar­rower than the big­ger 625 se­ries, there­fore as­sur­ing the hull of a sta­ble ride.

The dead­rise of 20 de­liv­ers a clas­sic smooth CruiseCraft ride, even in a short and nasty chop and at rest the wide chines give sta­bil­ity like no other.

Un­der the cock­pit floor, the CruiseCraft de­sign­ers have moved the fuel tank fur­ther for­ward to pro­vide a bet­ter balanced hull.

This move al­lows for the large stor­age bin or kill tank to be po­si­tioned aft.

CruiseCraft has rated the CruiseCraft Ex­plorer 595 to carry ei­ther a two or fourstroke out­board on the tran­som with a rec­om­mended horse power rat­ing of 150.
