The flagship of Stingray’s cruiser line, the 250CS is priced $5,000 to $6,000 below comparable models from other brands. Stingray’s 2008 models are powered exclusively by Volvo Penta, an arrangement that lets the builder increase efficiency and save money – and pass the savings along to its customers. The cockpit of the 250CS caters to entertaining, with lots of seating and a wet bar. Below, a convertible dinette/V-berth and a mid-cabin accommodate four sleepers. For this price you can’t take for granted the galley and stand-up head either.
