Horizon 485 Scorpion Cuddy boat review

Posted on January 8, 2018

For Horizon Aluminium Boats, that key point is exceptional value for money, which the well-known Aussie boating brand has been delivering since 1992. I recently ducked down to the Tweed River on a gloomy and windy day to check out the new-for-2018 Horizon 485 Scorpion Cuddy powered by Yamaha’s lightweight pocket rocket F60LB four-stroke outboard.

- A smart looking, well-equipped inshore fishing package Horizon has been manufacturing aluminium boats for many years (nearly 25 in fact) and it shows. The 438 Stryker XPF SC Deluxe is nicely finished, well-built, and all the interior features are just the right height, length or width. The Stryker is also a solid performer, achieving a safe, secure, comfortable ride for a small boat, combined with excellent performance.

Horizon’s budget-friendly 525 Scorpion Cuddy is a full-featured, easily trailerable family boat for bay and coastal cruising and fishing. Remarkably, this high volume 17 footer also achieves 30 knot performance from just 70hp... in the form of Yamaha’s wonderfully smooth F70A four-stroke outboard.

This neat 4.38m Horizon Stryker XPF side console rig has a lot going for it. While a team of keen anglers could put the well turned out alloy rig to good use for some serious fishing in bay or estuary, there’s no denying the craft’s tremendous family boating appeal given the generously wide layout, ample interior work room plus a red hot price, at under $21,000 from the dealer’s yard.
