Breaking It Down
All-fiberglass construction and solid hardware give this boat the appeal of larger boats; thanks to Tracker Marine’s already huge bulk-buying powers, good components are fitted into it and priced within family budgets. This boat is responsive to the throttle with the 190 hp and really sporty with the 220 hp fuel-injected MerCruiser. Full instrumentation is standard, as is a Sirius Satellite-ready stereo complete with MP3 port and a factory-built and color-matched trailer. There’s even an extended swim platform for swimming comfort at anchor.
All-fiberglass construction includes a fiberglass sole that drains to the bilge for easy cleanup. Port aft seat hides a built-in cooler that drains to the bilge.
Stainless-steel helm cup holders and rub rail show Tahoe isn’t skimping on hardware.
Stainless grab handles at the boarding ladder ease re-entry.
Floor locker is ideal for life jackets but too short for skis or boards.
Optional tower connections extend beyond rub rail, requiring more caution when docking.
