Quicksilver Activ 705 "2013 Winner"

The prestigious monthly magazine Motor Boats Monthly has voted the Quicksilver 705 Activ as Winner in the Starter Boats category. Motor Boats Monthly said, in reaching their decision: “With its mix of fun handling, practical features and class-leading accommodation, Quicksilver’s first cruiser from its all-conquering Activ range has delivered more knockout blows than a tornado full of boxing gloves.” The judges at London Excel Boatshow were also “impressed with the 705’s value for money and wide range of inboard and outboard power options”
