-Create a bowrider that’s comfortable for the entire family and offers sporty performance.
-Hatches and doors are RTM molded, to maximize strength, minimize weight, and provide a finished surface inside and out.
-Coaming bolsters line the bow cockpit’s high sides.
-Wakeboarding tower is overbuilt – you can do chin-ups on it, and it won’t sway or move one bit.
-In a quick four seconds, it’s out of the hole.
-Hull vent gives partial advantages of a step, without the disadvantages.
-Grips the water in hard turns; cranking the wheel hard-over at WOT is not a problem.
-22-degree deadrise hull handles a chop well, and there’s little pounding or vibration.
-Aft seat transforms from forward-facing, to aft-facing, to a flat sunpad.
-Wakeboard tower is among the strongest you’ll find.
-Monster stereo ensures the rider can hear the tunes.
