Concept: Create a bowrider that’s comfortable for the entire family and offers sporty performance.

-Including an automatic fire extinguisher is a good idea.
-Motor mounts are beefed up with aluminum plates.

-Hull vent gives partial advantages of a step, without the disadvantages.
-Solid construction techniques result in few bumps or vibrations when cruising through roughed-up waters.

Unique features
-Aft seat transforms from forward-facing, to aft-facing, to a flat sunpad.
-Even though this is the smallest model in the series, it still has a fully enclosed head compartment.
-Pressure water system is usually an option on boats of this size, but on this one, it comes standard.Cruisers Sport Series 238 specifications
