Glastron GLS 195 (2009-2010) Test Video

Glastron released their latest series which starts with the GLS 195. This new series adds more upscale amenities and still keeps the price within reach. The GLS 195 has smart styling in a size that fits the young family looking for more than just an entry level basic bowrider.

I was impressed with the beefy grab rails, stainless drink holders and simulated wood trim accents on a boat this size. When it comes to affordable boats you generally see a lot of plastic and chrome – two materials that aren’t going to last as long as the boat itself. The custom engine vents on this model are heavy-duty, they will surely last as long as the boat and that is usually something that is the first to break!
