CSS-208-BTN

Concept


  • Build a small bow rider with the same attention to detail and equipment as Cruisers uses on their larger, far more expensive yachts.


Construction

  • Hatches and doors are RTM molded, to maximize strength, minimize weight, and provide a finished surface inside and out.

  • Aluminum plates beef up the engine mounting system and back up all deck hardware.

  • Snap-in woven mat replaces carpet with a stronger, easier to clean surface that’s also easy on the feet.


Performance & Handling

  • With a 260-hp Mercury stern drive, we blasted past 50-mph.

  • Semi-steps in the hullsides help the boat dig in and grip in hair-pin turns.

  • Better than 3.5 MPG at cruise.

  • Handles a chop well, and there’s little pounding or vibration.

Unique Features

  • There’s a back-up pump switch in the bilge and a auto fire extinguisher in the engine-box; both are unheard-of in production boats of this size.

  • Swim platform ladder is canted off to the side to keep swimmers safely away from the props.
