Four Winns continues its tradition of introducing unique concepts and innovative designs, making its claim as one of the leading brands of recreational boats in the industry.
 

Four Winns 348 Vista
In only its second year of production the 348 Vista has become a popular model in the Four Winns line.  The express cruiser is packed in the amenities department, and is designed with a layout ready for entertaining. On test day the 348 Vista hit a top speed of 39.1 mph turning 5200 rpm with good overall fuel economy.
 

Four Winns 318 Vista
The 318 Vista is a bit smaller than her 348 sister, but offers the same quality amenities in just a more manageable package.  This model measures in at 33-feet overall with a beam of 10-feet, 6-inches.  Our test boat achieved a top speed of 45.5 mph.  Best cruise was 31 mph turning 3500 rpm.
 

Four Winns 190 Horizon
The 2006 Four Winns 190 Horizon is an affordable, well-performing runabout. At wide-open-throttle the 190 Horizon hit a top end speed of 47.4 mph at 5000 rpm, while her best cruise speed was realized at 3000 rpm for a range of 140 miles.
 

Four Winns 180 Horizon
New for 2006, the 180 Horizon is a sporty, entry-level bowrider, packed with quality features and good economical performance. At 5000 rpm she reached a top speed of 42 mph and her best cruise was at 3500 rpm traveling 28.6 mph.
 

Star brite Fuel Treatment

According to Star brite, there have been numerous reports that newer alcohol (ethanol)-enhanced gasoline can gel as temperatures fluctuate, leading to clogged filters and other fuel-delivery system problems.  The problem is only surfacing now because as we head into the fall, the swing between day and evening temperatures is increasing and so are the problems.  "Additionally," according to the company's spokesperson Jeff Tieger, "if boats are stored using this fuel it will be a nightmare come next Spring."

 

The problem seems to be worse with engines that have very fine fuel filters, like boats.  Boaters have described the clogged filters as looking as if they are coated with gelatin.  When the filters clog it is difficult for the engine to accelerate quickly and maximum RPMs are impossible to reach.  In extreme cases the engine stops running and will not restart.

Star brite Star tron is a revolutionary new type of fuel treatment based on enzyme technology.  This product will prevent gelling of alcohol (ethanol)-modified gas and can even reverse the gelling process once it occurs. For more information on Star tron, go to www.starbrite.com.
