~2000 - CC550 Vs Streaker 585 ???

Postby dukman Thu Nov 05, 2015 11:17 pm

G'day,
I'm looking at buying my first fibreglass boat. I've been looking into Cruise Craft 550 and the Streaker 585 around 2000 models.
Looking for the good and the bad points for both or any other similar fibreglass boat options. My budget is ~30K.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

I had a 585 tournament for 5 years and was a cracker of a boat mate. But if u buy one first thing to fit is trim tabs, it changes that boat massivly. They also have a great lay out for that size boat. Have not been in a cc 550 so can't comment

Thanks for the reply Inn Deep,
I'm from S.A. so I don't get to see many of these boat over here. The boat I'm looking at has only got a 130HP, so I think it would be a bit under powered. But there is only one real way of finding out and that's to go for a run in it. That's if the survey checks out.

Cheers...

Gday dukman, I have owned a Streaker 545 (just a 585 reduced in length) and 2 cruise crafts (an early 570 and now an explorer 600). My personal experience was, the Steaker I loved it when I first bought it (brand new at the time and I kept it for 6 years) UNTIL I drove a few other boats. I drove a 585 better but still no comparison to the cruise craft or for that matter others including Haines Hunter, Edencraft Allison (owned an Allison for a number of years as well) but I would say the Streaker was still better than many others Ive driven as well.
This is only my opinion but I can speak from 40 years of boat ownership and having owned over 30 boats (currently own 3) and ridden in and driven literally 100's, also Im not just talking about how they handle or drive but also quality of build and "fishability" or practicality as well.

Thanks for your replies Wulfy and Sportsfish.
I've found there are a lot of makes and models in this class of boat and this type of feed back is very helpful in making a more informed decision on spending my hard earned cash.

Cheers.
