Explorer 485 - Spec Sheet Explorer 485 - F70AETL/10

If you are looking forward to your first boat or you are moving up from a smaller hull, what better way to begin with Cruise Craft than the Explorer 485. Easy to operate and easy to own, the Cruise Craft Explorer 485 is a fully featured all-rounder.

This is a wonderful family fishing platform with a full walk through deck. With family and friends on board, you can enjoy a comfortable day on the water fishing, relaxing and enjoying the company of your crew. There’s also the opportunity to go camping by the water and have loads of fun with a ski tube too.

The famed Explorer hull performs exceptionally well with a modest, fuel efficient mid-range outboard. The boat is towed on a single axle trailer making it a breeze to launch, then an effortless package to park away at home.

You can become a proud Cruise Craft owner and enjoy all the benefits of this high quality entry level boat, your life time association with Cruise Craft begins here.
