    Cruisecraft 635 v 720

    Hi all

    Tossing up between the above 2 boats. Looking mainly to us for offshore fishing for up to 4 people and also overnighting on it for 2 people.

    Can anybody share any real world experience of:

    • how much bigger the 720 feels in terms of fishing space and also cabin space for sleeping
    • how much better the 720 handles
    • any other major differences other than the size and fuel capacity

    Thanks in advance

    Mark, i'm a plate man and no time in cruisy's but for me i recon their almost to different to be even compare. An extra 85cm of length and 6cm of beam is massive in any trailer boat. I went from 6.5 to 6.8 in effectively what was the same boat otherwise and even that little bit was a huge change in reality. Would tow weight makes the call for you, maybe look for some real life bridge weights on a 720 locked and loaded, not sure it would make the 3.5. i recon any trailer boat goes into a different league once you get into that 23 foot zone, particularly for offshore fishing and overnighting.
    Good luck with it, fun times getting into a new rig.

    I've spent a fair amount of time offshore in the 625 (same as 635) - a very capable hull if driven to conditions. Not as much time in the 685 (720) but it is next level in terms of ride comfort. Personally I think most boats in this size bracket are suited to fishing 3 up at best to minimize tangles. Add a fourth and someone always seems to be fishing under the boat unless they are perched up the bow.

    What have you decided Mark?
    Bigger is always better, well most times.
    Limits are towing, handling solo or not, fishing room for crew, and money.

    Hi John

    There was a 720 for sale second hand but was concerned about the weight.

    I have 2 cars, Prado which can tow 3t therefore could not tow the 720. The other is a Patrol which would tow the 720.

    Hesitated on the second hand one and missed out which really bummed about.

    Short answer is want a 720, just have to wait until a good 720 comes up.
