A Monterey sportsboat was voted top craft in a major new poll in the US.

Website NADAguides.com, the world’s largest publisher of valuations and specification information for new and used vehicles of all varieties, chose the 263 Explorer as its top boat for 2005.

Marine editor Judy Applegate said of the deckboat: “This boat is roomy with a pleasing length. It’s easy to tow on the open road and offers a moulded-in sink with wet bar and a portside privacy compartment that doubles as a storage room – cool features and great quality in an affordable boat.”
