McLay 651 CrossXover Hardtop

The McLay 651 CrossXover Hardtop is the ultimate all-rounder – great for the avid fisho’ who loves to go offshore and wet a line but also great to take the family out on for a day of fun in the river or ocean. The hull is made from 5mm thick marine grade aluminium plate for the bottom, and 4mm plate for the sides and topsides. The keel is reinforced with a 10mm thick section, right along the waterline, and a reverse chine runs down each side.

Below the 4mm checkered plate used for the floor, the CrossXover uses a welded aluminium rib and stringer system built around a 175-litre fuel tank, and an in-built flotation tank to aid buoyancy. The gunwales are foam-filled to give the McLay 651 CrossXover level, not basic, flotation – a safety feature quite unique in the aluminium plate sector.

McLay Boats describe the CrossXover range as it’s “built-tough adventure hull, meant to get families out of the living room and onto the water.”

This boat has been packaged with a new Honda BF225 outboard and a new Dunbier EZ-Loader trailer.
Additional addons included in price are dual batteries, VHF radio and antenna, stainless steel propellor, offshore safety kit and 12 months registration.
