How do you make the biggest and the best, even better? Add a Hard Top and fish for many more months of the year.

Boaters now have the choice of two HardTop variations on the Explorer 685. The HardTop can be optioned with a full height glass window that extends from the front of the dash to the underside of the hardtop moulding. The full height glass work also extends along both sides of the cockpit with sliding panels to allow a flow of air through when needed.

Up north and over in the west where the heat can be just as much as an impediment to comfort as the rain, the HardTop can be fitted with a standard windscreen and utilises CruiseCraft’s unique sail track system for the clears. When the clears are opened, a breeze can flow through the helm area, while providing protection from the sun and rain.

Common features to both variations are the laminated front glass panels, high quality stainless steel hand rails and rod racks. A single wiper is standard with the full height glass version only. 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.
