Quicksilver Activ 675 Weekend first look: £40k starter boat is full of promise

The Quicksilver Activ 675 is the new entry-level model in the Belgian yard’s compact peche-promenade range.

With single Mercury outboards on offer from 115-225hp, a wheelhouse and sleeping space for four thanks to a convertible double berth in the saloon, the Quicksilver Activ 675 is an affordable all-weather starter boat for families keen to get into boating.

In the winter months, its bright, heated cabin offers protection from the elements but in the summer the deep cockpit and sun pad on the foredeck offer a reasonable amount of space to enjoy the sunshine.
