Cruise Craft Explorer 575
Explorer 657 - Spec Sheet  

The Explorer 657 is a genuine legend. The blue water fishing scene throughout Australia has embraced this model and elevated it to cult status. Few offshore fishing machines roll off the production line with such an impressive inventory of standard equipment, not to mention, attention to detail.

By any measure this is a big boat, that will carry a family or any fishing group, far offshore in absolute safety and comfort. The Explorer 657 features a raised deck line, so as to provide a heap of space in the cabin. Under the flowing line of the deck, and fitted forward of the helm, is a cabin that features a fully moulded interior. This delivers very smooth, neat lines.

The cockpit is expansive, with the helm position pushed a little further forward, to make fishing even easier. This is a dream ‘work space’ for game fishermen. The cockpit area is broad, thanks to the big 2.45m beam of the hull.

Check the complete list of features and you’ll soon see the stand outs that set the Explorer apart from the competition, bar none!
