Quicksilver Activ 705 underway Collins Marine
Collins Marine will host the Australian release of the Award winning Quicksilver 705 Cruiser at the upcoming Sydney International Boat show, 1-5 August, as well as several other appealing models under the brand that is new to the Australian market.

The Activ 705 Cruiser has won the 2013 Motor Boat of the Year Award at London. This is the third consecutive year that Quicksilver has won one of Europe’s top boat design awards.

The sporty, spacious and very individual Activ 705 Cruiser is a boat that’s made for being on the water. With room for eight people, the permanent galley and spacious dining area make those moments spent with family and friends extra special. While the private berth and enclosed toilet are just part of the on-board comfort that makes the overall experience a pleasure.

Turn heads with an optional striking black and white hull design with electric blue accent line. Three optional packs even allow you to tailor your boat to your exact needs such as Cruising – including cool water shower and extended L seating; Deluxe Cruising – including sea toilet and fridge; and Electronic – including a GPS system and stereo.

Safety is naturally paramount on such a fine craft. You’ll find carefully positioned handrails, a top quality ladder and better cockpit access from the large swimming platform than in similar boats in its category. High freeboard and a non-skid surface make it a secure on-board environment for up to eight passengers of all ages.

When it comes to cruising, the easy to use helm design allows you to take control either standing or from the comfort of the double helm seat. The permanent galley and large dining area make entertaining very enjoyable. While the cruising pack options add touches such as extended seating benches, cabin curtains and 12V fridge.

The highly flexible nature of the Active 705 Cruiser makes life at sea a real breeze. The large dining area easily becomes a double berth while the versatile cockpit can be converted from fishing to social area in which to dine on your catch.
Every area of the Active 705 Cruiser has been designed with practicality top of mind. And when it comes to storage you’ll find ample is provided underneath the seating in the cockpit and beneath the private berths.

Feedback on the brand from the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show in May was 'very positive', according to dealer, Peter Collins. 'We even sold a few!'



The Euro styling of sleek lines and comfortable spaces, topped off by exceptional value for money have been popular with show visitors.

The Quicksilver brand has something for everybody. 'With such a range of boats, we just about have the whole market covered,' says Collins. 'There are 23 models, from 5m up to 8m and with different applications and specialties.'


Visitors to Sydney will be impressed by the variety of models and the quality finish, he continues. Entry level on a 505 Open begins around $31,000 including 40hp engine package. 'That's a lot of boat for the money!'

Exhibiting in Hall 4, stand 424, Collins Marine will have five models on show – 605 Open (in water) – 555 Open – 645 Cabin – 705 Cruiser – 640 Pilot House.

'Prices are very competitive and people will be drawn to the superior quality and design.'
