The Quicksilver Activ 605 Open wins the Boat of Year 2017 Award

Many exceptional new boats varying in style and size ran for the Boat of the Year award, which makes the victory of the Activ 605 Open all the more impressive.


In total 15 new motor boats made it to the finals, most of them very interesting, but the Activ 605 Open beats its key rivals more convincingly in the key areas. Put simply, it wins the overall boat of the year award for its value, ease of use and versatility making the boat ideal for day trips or fishing tours and guaranteeing safety for even the youngest onboard. This is why it has taken the overall crown.

The Activ 605 Open with Smart Edition is the best pick. But whichever options you choose, you’ll be getting a condensed package of fun whether you want to go fishing, do water sports or prefer a day cruise.

The boat of the year awards are organized by Moteur Boat Magazine, France’s leading nautical magazine. A total of fifteen boats is voted to the finals via an online inquiry and after that extensively tested during 2 days by boat enthusiasts and marine experts.
