BEST PREMIUM BOWRIDER
Doral Elite 235
African mahogany trim with Italian varnish and vinyl so supple you must examine it with a magnifying glass to prove it's not leather are just a couple of the most obvious clues that Doral has raised its game with its Elite series. For those in southern climes, Doral offers a cooler-to-the-touch off-white vinyl that is just as supple as the tanned buckskin interior that adds such a dashing look.
The 235 is a downsized version of the 275 introduced last year. Both models sport Volvo Penta power with DuoProp drives, and a full selection of gasoline and diesel Volvo Penta and MerCruiser engines is also available. A top speed of 49 mph with the fuel-injected 5.7-liter engine adds to the cache of a boat built like a luxury sport sedan.
The mahogany wheel and trim crown the rich interior, making this one of our favorites.
Best of All
We have to give the nod to another well-designed helm with comfortable driving positions. And the gauge cluster looks great.
