Though Stingray dubs the 198LX a sport “deck,” it looks little removed from a runabout, though it does offer slightly larger bow and stern cockpits than are typical aboard runabouts this size, a result of its slightly wider than typical (for a Stingray runabout) beam. The LX also gets a full-fiberglass cockpit liner, replacing Stingray’s typical carpet-over-marine-ply floor. Beyond those, layout is expected bowrider fare. Parallel lounges are featured in the bow, with both an insulated cooler and combination anchor/ladder locker in the steps leading off the bow. In the main cockpit, twin bucket seats with optional flip-up bolsters are placed behind each console. A three-quarter-width stern bench and sun pad are interrupted for a 15-inch-wide starboard walk-through for easy access from the swim platform. On that platform, an elevated seat makes a convenient spot to gear up for tow sports. Below, a wet compartment is ready to accommodate tow lines or other damp items.
