Caravelle Interceptor 192 BR Captain's Report

The Interceptor 192 Bow Rider is Big on Features and Performance

Tested By Capt. Bob Smith

Every Caravelle features wood-free construction, including seat bases throughout the craft insuring years of trouble free use. Even the stringer system is all fiberglass. Closed cell foam is injected between each stringer further increasing support and durability. ArmorFlex is the flexible gelcoat for super stress crack resistance. ArmorCote is used for accent colors producing a brighter, fade resistant shine. ArmorGuard is an advanced blister resistant barrier coat. TCS 6000 resin completes the Total Composite System producing one of the finest gelcoat/resin combinations in the industry.

Bow Features

Starting at the bow there's a pop-up cleat for lines and anchor line when out on the hook. Seating up front is pretty spacious for this size boat. The hinged seat bottom on the port side lifts to expose a handy finished and insulated compartment that doubles as a bow cooler so everyone doesn’t have to climb back into the cockpit for the next cold drink. The bow section lifts to expose the anchor and rode storage compartment complete with clips for a Danforth style anchor.

Over on the starboard side the seat hinges up to give you access to carpeted storage for gear. Lounger backs on both sides make it a comfortable space to catch rays or you can add filler cushions to really stretch out in the sun. The wraparound windshield was color coordinated and topped with a stainless steel bar surrounding the top. The walkthrough was also plenty wide for everyone.

At the Controls

Color coordinated Faria gauges complimented the layout and included a digital depth gauge on the far right side of the panel. The Dino sport wheel was comfortable and tilted for personal. Even the wheel was color coordinated. To the left of the wheel is a 12volt socket for charging the cell phone or powering portable gear like a GPS. The switches had red lights for easy identification at night, and Caravelle has placed all the circuit breakers under the dash and behind a panel to make things easier. In addition, they have carefully labeled all the breakers.

Functional Cockpit

Located on the companion side is one of the speakers, along with a courtesy light for safer night movement, and cup holder for the navigator. These bucket seats were very comfortable, and featured ventilated backs to keep you cooler underway and leaf spring suspension that takes the bone jarring bounce out of the wakes as you cross them. A sturdy bolster gets you up high so you can see over the bow when coming out of the hole. The navigator also gets to be the DJ as the stereo is on their side complete with CD player.

In the floor between the helm and navigator seats is a large storage compartment for boards and bulky gear. Beam-to-beam seating at the rear means you can have more friends on board and everyone gets to be comfortable. There is more storage for large items under the stern bench seat. Although my boat was delivered without it, it does come standard with snap-in carpet for cooler decks in the sun.

Transom Features

Under the large sun pad are clips for the folding stern navigation light. No more hunting around to find where it was put the last time. The battery is behind a snap-in cover on the starboard side of the engine and the hydraulic pump is behind a matching one on the port side. There is plenty of room for the pre-launch check of the engine and for routine maintenance with this set up.

Our boat was equipped with the extended swim platform which also had pop-up cleats for water toys and docking lines. Lifting ring access is allowed for and you have a three-step deep reach swim boarding ladder. Another nice option on my test boat was the remote stereo control so you can change songs or stations without having to get all the way in the cockpit every time.

Test Run

Caravelle’s Interceptor 192 measures in at 19 feet 6 inches overall, with a beam width of 8 feet. She weighs in at about 2,900 pounds and has a fuel capacity of 30 gallons. I tested this model on Lake Blackshear in southern Georgia with a MerCruiser 260-hp sterndrive. She was quick to plane in just 3 seconds and was at 30 miles per hour in just 8 seconds. I found her cruise speed to be around 33.5mph which will take you about 137 miles on a full tank of fuel. Wide-open-throttle performance was very good at 54.2mph.

If you enjoy the speed and performance of Caravelle and appreciate the wood free durability and professional construction or are just looking for a great ski boat with lots of room for family and friends, Caravelle has something they really want to show you.
