Sail-World.com : So much to love in the Quicksilver Activ 505 Open
So much to love in the Quicksilver Activ 505 Open


'Quicksilver Activ 505 Open'    Collins Marine    Click Here to view large photo

The centre-console layout continues to grow in popularity, but even so this Quicksilver Activ 505 Open adds a new dimension to versatility and safety for family fun and fishing action.

Blending contemporary European styling with ageless Aussie practicality, the 505 Open packs far more accommodation and storage into its 5.07 metre length than you could possibly expect.

The high topsides add to the 505’s seaworthy hull design and give deep passage internal walk-around security from stem to stern. That’s great for energetic youngsters or for ambitious anglers in the heat of battle.

The centre-console makes an ideal helm station and its interior provides enormous storage. The double seat accommodates skippers who wish to drive either seated or standing. The other lounges range from a more protected and relaxed style across the back of the 505 or there is added excitement and a ‘breath of fresh sea air’ available in front of the console as well as right forward across the wide bow area.

The helm seat has a flip-over back-rest so the skipper and first mate can face the crew on the aft lounge for relaxed conversation once the voyage is over and a new water-access-only scenic delight has been reached. A ‘SMART’ Edition of the 505 packages key options at a special price to include cockpit upholstery, a demountable table, a sun lounge extension and bimini cover. With these in place, the 505 can be anything from a floating island of tranquillity to an alfresco cafe.

When the peaceful interludes are over though, the 505 Open is just as ideal for fervent fishing or recreational watersports. Rod holders and an optional ski pole facilitate these respective activities whilst water access is easy over swim and boarding platforms that are larger than usual for this size of craft.

Mercury outboards from 40 to 90 hp provide all the performance you’ll need. With a 4-stroke Mercury 40, the 505 will cruise at just on 30 km/h and use only a smidge over 10 litres an hour to make for a very economical day on the water. From $31,000, plus trailer if required, the 505’s excellent value starts right up front. Top speed with the 40 is 43 km/h which is plenty to get you home in front of a southerly buster. If faster velocities appeal, a Mercury 90 Optimax will run the 505 to 67 km/h.

Attention to detail is evident throughout the 505 Open, as are design attributes that reflect real-world boating experience drawn from throughout the huge Brunswick organisation of which both Quicksilver and Mercury are part. Based in Belgium with strong R&D influence from the USA and elsewhere, Quicksilver boats are available across styles from enthusiast fishing to family runabout and cruiser models. In the Activ Open series, the 505 is the smallest with other versions up to 6.75 metres so there’s one that’s just the right size for you.

Nonetheless, the 505 is hard to beat for optimal boating and is perfectly suited to anything from carefree runabout through family dayboat to a serious angling platform, or as a tender for a large power yacht.
