Sized Just Right

While the new Glastron GT is not the largest bowrider you can find, this vessel, at nearly 22 feet, seems just right for many boat owners looking for an affordable, easy-to-trailer boat.

At the Bow

A bow seating area where even six-footers will find comfort is a great reason to buy the boat. The walkways are wide, and the seating is plentiful.

Attention to Detail

All through the boat you find details that are interesting, and add to a premium feel.

Extended Swim Platform

Skiers and swimmers will like the extended swim platform.

U-Shaped Seating

The rear wrap-around seat opens in the center to provide a step from the transom.

Transom Walk-Through

On the GT, Glastron came up with an innovative way to provide a walk-through without compromising aft seating or the full-width sunlounge at the stern.
