If you would like to get out on the water with friends and family, bowriders are a top choice for fun on the water.
You will find plenty of choice and selection for bowriders. They vary in size, starting as small as 16 feet in length. Bowriders not only come in all sizes, but they are also powered differently. You can opt for a bowrider with a stern drive, jet drive, or an outboard or inboard motor.
For anyone thinking about boating as a hobby, bowriders can be an excellent first watercraft that lets you get out on the water without breaking the bank.
These boats forgo a cabin for a spacious, accessible deck and comfortable seating. The open seating area characteristic of bowriders is ideal for boating excursions with a group. The engine power ensures you can enjoy watersports and you can likely haul behind the family truck or SUV.
Here’s our round-up of three of the best-reviewed bowrider boats on the market:
Cobalt 200S – This cleverly designed 20-foot bowrider boat is sleek inside and out (we particularly admire their innovative swim step on the swim platform). The seating area makes the most of space and is easily converted from safe seating while in motion to relaxing seats while you soak up some Vitamin D.
Sea Ray SPX 210 – Cruise in style with the surprisingly affordable 21-foot-plus bowrider. It comfortably accommodates 12 people and won’t disappoint with its wonderfully designed interior. Imagine the fun you can have aboard a Sea Ray, whether you want to enjoy the sights, watersports, or fishing.
Ebbtide 2240 Extreme Bow Rider – At just over 23-feet long, this bold and powerful bowrider is going to get attention. A maximum capacity of 10 people (or up to 1,750 pounds), this well-crafted boat boasts a fiberglass lining and pad V-hull design. Boating enthusiasts will appreciate how well this bowrider handles and passengers will feel safe and comfortable in the roomy interior.
