Larson Cabrio 220 (2009-) Test Video

The Cabrio Series has had a good run and for 2009, they have made a few upgrades to enhance your enjoyment. We really liked the fact the U-shaped seating in the aft cockpit comes out to convert this model to a fishing rig for a quick jaunt out with the guys. The gunwale tops are wide enough to add downriggers, if you are really into the fishing scene. With the seats out, the seat backs become comfortable thigh bolsters you can lean into for fighting a fish.

This model really speaks well to the northern boater that needs more options for cover and quasi cruising ability. For the European market, it looks and feels bigger than it is. Although it is not a true cruiser, it sure looks like an entry-level trailerable cruiser! It is priced like a cuddy yet feels like a cruiser.

Key Features

  • Removable aft seating converts to fishboat with wide gunwales for downriggers
  • Optional swim platform extension
  • New style graphics, five color options: black, blue, white, sand, red
  • Stainless bow rails with chrome rail mounted remote spotlight
  • Stainless rub rail and through hulls
  • Stretched headliner in cabin
