Fishing enthusiasts can also use the boat with fishing rod holder and spacious cockpit as a base, which is equally suitable for divers and their equipment. The best thing about it: crew and driver can be on the move even in bad weather, as they always find a dry spot in the sheltered driver’s cabin. If you want to extend the season, especially in northern areas, you can use the optionally available diesel heater.Read More
Quicksilver Activ 755 Weekend – Driving and manoeuvring
On the subject of “engine and propulsion” the skipper has to decide between the inboard and outboard version.
According to the shipyard, the engine power should be between 175 and 300 hp. We sailed with an F250 (250 HP). It brings the test boat (power trim down) between about 2000 and 3800 rpm in gliding speed typical rather for planning hull, while you have a short moment through the rising bow to see the instrument panel.
To ensure that the driver has everything firmly and precisely under control, the shipyard is installing electrically controlled steering and gear shifting. Both can be easily operated both standing and sitting. On the driver’s side, a sports seat with a folding seat surface provides comfort. You can look through a safety glass pane, which is cleaned by two windscreen wipers with washer, with the port wiper being on the list of accessories.
Safety of 755 Weekend
When it comes to operational safety, clean and fixed installations are convincing, but we would like to see extra fuel filters in the fuel line. We also miss the manual bilge pump, which according to the BOAT standard cannot replace the two electric bilge pumps.
The way to the foredeck leads over 0.21 m wide side decks with railing and effective anti-slip structures. A swim ladder, which can also be operated neatly from the water, is standard, as are a self-draining anchor locker, opening side windows, table, LED interior lighting, dual battery system (with selector switch) and galley with sink.
The Quicksilver Activ 755 Weekend definitely lives up to its name and offers many water sports possibilities. However, we recommend that the standard version be combined with the additional packages “Smart Edition”. and “electro”. The driving and manoeuvring characteristics make an appealing impression, the same applies to workmanship and installations.
