Quicksilver Activ 675: A Quick-Witted Drive

There is little doubt that in times of general belt tightening, we all want our boats to do just a little bit more. After all, a new boat is a major commitment, so unless you’re a dedicated racing or angling enthusiast, you probably want to enjoy a bit of cruising, a bit of fishing, a bit of sightseeing and the odd sporting drive. And for that, you don’t want complicated hull steps or exotic powerplants, but simple things like a spacious deck, a generous complement of seating and sufficient storage to spend the odd weekend away. It is therefore very timely that Quicksilver should have chosen 2011 to launch its Activ range.

The 675 is the flagship of Quicksilver s Activ range

Take your pick

The Activ range from Quicksilver consists of 10 models in eight hull sizes, from 4.3 to 6.75 metres in length. There are four configurations available to the UK boater (Cabin, Open, Walkaround and Sundeck) and all share a set of very distinct design traits, with attractively contoured cockpit fittings, muted colourways and spacious hull designs that carry a broad beam well forward of the helm toward the softly curved bows.

The 675 is the flagship of the Activ range and it comes in two different forms. The Open has a large, deep-set deck, comparable even to that of a sports fisher, so it immediately looks well suited to a life of varied British boating. By way of contrast, the Mediterranean-style Sundeck is appointed very distinctly as a sociable summer platform. It enjoys a considerably more lavish fitout and (rather optimistically for a UK boat) it seems that just about every element of that layout is geared towards that huge sunbathing space in the bow.

There s more than enough room for sunbathing — perhaps a little optimistic for the British climate.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing. After all, on a lazy, sunny day, it is an immensely impressive feature. But surely that vast, expansive plateau in the bow causes problems for the headroom down below. Well when you step down below decks, the first impressions are positive. The cabin shares the same clean, angular mouldings and sculpted cushions as the top deck, and (because it matches the footprint of the sundeck above) it is also very well proportioned. But that low roof does prevent a six-foot man from standing upright. Certainly, it functions well enough as a place to get your head down or to stow your extra gear (and it even features a portable toilet) but it’s not a place in which you would want to loiter unnecessarily.
