Pairing a family bowrider with outboard power makes sense because it frees up interior space for the crew and can be trimmed up for beaching. The Rinker Q3 fits that mission and displays instant curb appeal at the dock thanks to its sporty lines and pretty gelcoat, along with the optional forward-raked ski and wakeboard tower. But that form is also built with serious function. You’ll note that the Q3 has some of the deepest, most secure freeboard in the cockpit and bow lounge that you’ll find on a comparable runabout. Rinker calls the bow area “hot-tub-style,” with plenty of seating, forward-facing backrests against the consoles, and strategically placed stainless-steel grab handles.
