JCM is proud to list this heavily optioned, near new 11 hour old, Yamaha F250Hp outboard powered and recent factory refurbished Cruise Craft 685 Outsider.
The Outsider model offers numerous built-in features conducive to more of a balance between family comforts but doesn’t shy away from its fishing heritage.
Boasting a huge lock up cabin where 3 adults can comfortably sleep, a cockpit that offers 4 anglers to fish with room to move and the reputable ride that Cruise Craft boats are known for.
The boat has been recently overhauled with a new factory fitted composite transom and full hull check over, atop of this the owner has also repowered the boat with the new generation Yamaha F250XCB - 250hp V6 outboard. This has transformed the rig, not only just the ride and balance of the boat but also delivered even more savings with the fuel economy of this new tech motor.
The engine has recorded only 11 hours use since being registered for warranty in December 2021. For further buyers reassurance, prior to listing, the engine has had its first service completed by our local Yamaha dealer and balance of factory warranty remains until December 2025 by following the Yamaha service schedule.
Fuelled via the underfloor 300l capacity tank, range is assured! Steering is made light via the Seastar hydraulic steering system, the motor spin a stainless steel Saltwater Series II prop and with fly by wire digital gear selection and the latest CL5 digital engine gauge fitted to the dash, you can enjoy some of the latest tech from Yamaha!

The hull marries to a late model December 2015 built Cruise Craft (Redco) RE230T-EH 3.5 multi roller trailer that fits like a glove. These trailers have been the go-to for Cruise Craft as they are locally built and provide not only a well-balanced tow trailer but also at the ramp, launching and retrieving is a simple exercise.
Just like the hull, the trailer has also been recently through a workshop have new tyres fitted, brakes overhauled and the trailer serviced for on road towing confidence.
These 685 Outsider’s are now very rare to find in sound condition as most will still have original, high hour outboards fitted.
But….. for those in the know, here’s an incredible opportunity to own an Australian classic whereby someone else has spent the huge dollars and invested hours of time in putting together this classic and iconic locally made family/fishing trailerable package with high end componentry and a new Yamaha 250Hp!
