The key feature on Premier’s new 250 Grand Isle is the rear-island bed. The bed has a backrest that serves both the bed and the center lounge, and can be adjusted to three different positions. The Grand Isle is also available in SL layout that features two rear-facing lounges with plush cushions supported by Flexsteel technology.
Our test boat featured the Alpine stereo upgrade to six speakers and a subwoofer, so we could really kick out the jams while towing wakeboarders — watching the action from the rear-island bed, of course. Two speakers point back toward the swim platform, so at rest you can enjoy the music while taking a swim.
The PTX Performance package is another key feature on the 250. It’s a triple-tube setup with a hull-shaped centerline tube that sports a 12-inch pad, giving the 250 Grand Isle V hull characteristics. Lifting strakes on the inner sections of the outer tubes enhance performance. The standard configuration calls for a 30-inch center tube, but our test boat had the upgrade 36-inch tube.
Other options include the sea-grass flooring: a grippy decking on the swim platform that keeps stains and moisture away from the interior. The black hammered rails add to the overall style points.
