Now, thanks to the addition of the Hard Top to the legendary Explorer 657, all weather boating is a reality. This is an all-weather boat that provides unprecedented cover in foul weather, plus vital protection from the scorching sun while at sea.

Inside, the clean unencumbered space is impressive. Three can easily stand abreast, while there is plenty of space for the crew to stand behind the seats and remain under the protection of the Hard Top..

Sliding glass side windows are amongst the biggest in the business to allow a generous flow of fresh air through the Hard Top.

The Explorer 657 HT features laminated front glass panels with high quality stainless steel hand rails and rod racks, a driver side wiper assembly and electric auto-retract trim tabs.

For those who want even more protection from the elements, an optional SST sliding extension allows a canopy to be extended out over the cockpit
