Forward, the bow lounge allows two six-footers to stretch out or three adults to sit comfortably. The swivel helm chairs provided excellent visibility while running and, like the aft lounge, were comfortable and well constructed. There's a stowage locker in the sole that will accommodate a ski but not a wakeboard. A board might fit beneath the aft lounge, but we'd rather see the in-sole locker enlarged a tad, given that wakeboarding is arguably more popular than skiing these days.
The swim platform is wide and sports a three-step, stainless-steel boarding ladder; an ice chest is built in to the cockpit; and our test boat cruised to tunes blaring from Clarion's XMD2 CD/FM/cassette stereo with four speakers. Rock and ride.
LAST WORD. Fast, fun, and beautifully finished.
