The Quicksilver 755 Pilothouse, the new flagship of the range and a serious fishing machine for all enthusiasts, we look under the fiberglass on our stock boat to find out what makes this new model such a standout competitor and why fishing/cruising hybrids are so popular.
“the hull ensures good performance
A deep-v hull on this boat with strategically cut grab lines ensure performance and speed when the boat is reaching the plane and then ensures that she remains there as efficiently as possible making her one of the most competitive hulls available, also if the mood takes you there is a choice of upgraded color on the hull to a serene light blue making her really stand out from the crowd.
The stylish hull ports cut both sides of the bow are both opening and include integral mesh screens to help with sleeping comfort when staying aboard overnight whilst she comes equipped with the standard ‘D’ shaped reinforced stainless points both to the bow and aft.
“the deck hatches allow easy access
to storage and tanks…”
As an evenly balanced boat the deck here wastes no space taking care of every need of the modern fisherman, offering a good open area with dual fish lockers, numerous rod holders and large transom bait tank, all whilst not sacrificing on comfort or style.
The boat is also available with the highly desirable optional folding seating both to aft and stern of the main cockpit area, this sturdy seating provides a cushioned seating area for cruising that folds away at a moments notice when not in use.
The hatches on the deck in the cockpit allow access to the aforementioned fish lockers, a decent sized battery compartment with plenty of room to store gear and access to the fuel tank with more room again to store extra equipment, making the most of this space is what really keeps this boat practical and easy to maintain.
“The helm aboard is a real command station…”
Slightly offset from the center to allow a wider gangway on the starboard side making access to the bow area easy and letting you reach the pilothouse side door easily and quickly when required the pilothouse may be accessed both from the starboard gangway and the rear through the secure triple sliding door.
Inside you will notice a number of intelligent features such as a removable table, high quality rotating bolster seats, teak effect flooring, spacious galley and plenty of storage space.
The helm aboard is a real command station, here you will find all the switches to control the majority of features aboard such as the optional windlasses, trim tabs and more this vantage point give you a real feeling of control whilst providing the view to match, finished in a high gloss black for real class and style, and its not just the pilot that gets the all the fun, the opposing helm seat also provides a great view really allowing as many people as possible to get up and enjoying the ride.
Forward of the helm station you come to the berth aboard, cleverly designed to make the most of the space with infill panels and extra cushions to expand the area of the seating to a fully fledged berth suitable for two adults to relax and sleep in.
“Equip it with anything from the award winning 150hp
engine right up to the powerful 250hp…”
