Sea Ray 190 Bowrider Captain's Report

Plenty of Big Boat Features

Although she’s only 19 feet overall, the 190 incorporates plenty of bigger boat features. For instance, there’s a separate self-draining forward anchor and rode stowage area, complete with locking hatch and her console incorporates the same backlit instrumentation and low-glare blue night lighting that’s seen in many larger Sea Ray models.

Her custom three-piece tinted curved windshield is constructed of shatterproof glass, not plastic or Lexan. A Sunbrella convertible top with an interlocking extrusion is standard. Suggested options are a canvas package that includes an aft curtain, side curtains and a cockpit and tonneau cover.


With the 190’s deep-V 20-degree transom deadrise, don’t expect a chop to slow you down. Her standard tilt steering is another feature often only seen on larger boats.

The 190’s smorgasbord of engine options range from her standard 190-hp MerCruiser 4.3-liter Alpha One MCM stern drive to 210 and 220 EFI options, right up through a 240-hp, 5.0-liter EFI Alpha One MCM stern drive. A fun option is a single CD player with an amplifier and another suggested option is the starboard windshield wiper.

If you’re going to spend your day out on the water, there are not too many better ways to do it than aboard the 190.
