The line up of quality, Australian built CruiseCraft Explorers has been bolstered with the launch of the completely new Explorer 595 model. The new model builds on the successful hull geometry pioneered with the Cruise Craft 530 and 595 series of hulls.

Aimed squarely at the hard core fishing market, the new Explorer 595 is conveniently positioned in the middle of the established Explorer line up. This is a boat which establishes a new benchmark in Australian boating.

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

“The Nichols family is absolutely committed to the Australian boating market,” said Peter Benston of CruiseCraft boats.

“We continue to invest in tooling and development to maintain a highly contemporary and relevant product range for Australian boating families.

Over the past year or so we have released the all new Outsider 595 model, plus the Outsider 685 Hardtop.”

In creating the Explorer 595, the CruiseCraft design team has continued with the new design parameters developed for the 530 and 595 series of Cruise Craft boats. 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.

Whilst the proven CruiseCraft hull geometry continues, the Explorer 595 has a host of new features included. 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 full length 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 5.95 m or 6.35 m overall if the bowsprit is included. The Explorer 595 has a beam of 2.44m and is just 1 cm narrower than the bigger 625 series therefore assuring the hull of a dry and 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 Cruise Craft designers have moved the fuel tank further forward to provide a better balanced hull. This allows for the large storage bin or kill tank to be positioned aft.

Cruise Craft has rated the Cruise Craft Explorer 595 to carry either a two or four stroke outboard on the transom with a recommended horse power rating of 150.

Like other models in the CruiseCraft range, the CruiseCraft Explorer 595 has a solid inventory of standard equipment. This includes hydraulic steering, SS seat frames, clip out carpet, rear cockpit padded coaming and walk through transom door.

For those boaters who want to personalise their boat there is an extensive list of options from which to choose. You can specify the stainless steel Targa rocket launcher with bimini and clears. Or, why not consider the all new design folding Targa, an absolute work of art. Customers can also now include an optional opaque finish acrylic lockable sliding cabin door to make your boat secure.

Offshore and blue water fishing has never been better with the expansive range of CruiseCraft Explorers. Now boaters have an even bigger selection of models with the release of the all new mid range Explorer 595.

CruiseCraft is a wholly family owned, third generation Australian boat manufacturing business, operating from their Brisbane manufacturing facility. CruiseCraft boats are distributed exclusively through a network of Authorised Dealers throughout Australia and selected international markets.
