Cypress Cay’s flagship Cayman LE 250 comes luxuriously appointed, even in stock trim. Forward, plush lounges span the port and starboard sides. Aft, an expansive L-shaped lounge cradles more passengers with 7 feet of seating comfort. Each features overstuffed, pillow-top upholstery, in addition to bolsters below the thighs for comfort and security. Functional roto-molded seat bases with draining gutters promise to keep gear dry and maintenance low. Do you enjoy time at anchor? The nearly 4-foot-square aft sun pad may be the best seat in the house. Pivot the shared backrest forward and you’ve even got a sloping chaise, with sound system controls and music player inputs within arm’s reach.

No flagship would be complete without a flagship option or two. The highlight on our test boat was clearly the entertainment galley. Featuring bilevel faux-granite countertops, twin bar stools, and a refrigerator and sink, it truly puts the “party” in party boat. Other notable extras included the raised fiberglass helm, touch-screen display with GPS-based cruise, upholstered interior fence walls and an attractive, teak-look flooring.

The Cayman gets its spirited feel on the water from the addition of Cypress Cay’s T3 performance package. T3 adds a third, center pontoon dropped 1 inch below the outer two logs to produce a touch of lean-in, V-hull-style handling. That center pontoon gets full-length lifting strakes on each side; the outer pontoons add a performance-oriented strake to each interior. An aluminum skin below deck covers exposed cross members to lessen resistance. Combined with a potent Mercury Verado 300 Pro, the end result is nimble handling, a quick 3.5-second time to plane, six-second 0 to 30 mph performance and a top speed of 48 mph.
