At Cruise Craft we have taken all the best attributes from our Award Winning larger Explorers and crafted the Explorer 568 . This is a cuddy cab boat which certainly hits the sweet spot and had the boating press delivering rave reviews.

You are certain to be just as impressed when you take to the helm for the first time. This is a boat where there is no compromise in performance, features or comfort. It’s a design with sweet flowing lines… just the way a Cruise Craft should look.

From stem to stern, the Explorer 568 offers the utmost in quality. The cuddy cab provides ample storage and shelter, while the cockpit is spacious and beamy to handle a boat load of fishermen.

Then hit the throttle! The smooth ride has to be experienced to be properly appreciated. In true Explorer fashion, the 568 tracks like a laser and handles with all the composure of a family classic. And when you reach your favourite fishing mark, the stability at anchor is simply remarkable.

Whatever your expectations, the Explorer 568 will delight.
