Innovation & Style

Glastron’s more than 50 years of experience in building fiberglass boats really is evident in the GXL 235, which is packed with style and innovations.

Convertible Seating

Just like at the bow, you can turn the seats into a huge onboard sun pad by installing inserts.

Smart Thinking

Instead of a walkthrough at the stern, like other boats, there is a lift-up panel that forms the center section of the aft sundeck.
