In Our Wake: Two-For-One Special

Glastron's 1977 SSV model was ahead of its time.

In our January 1977 issue, Glastron proudly displayed its new SSV model, billing it as two boats in one. As the ad reads, “Never before has any boat matched the handling of a deep vee with the stability of a tri-vee. Until now.” The Glastron SSV could hold a crew of eight, with your choices of a 17- or 18-footer and sterndrive or outboard power. In today’s world of crossover boats, maybe the SSV was ahead of its time.
