Larson Cabrio 857 (2011-) Test Video

When making a day cruiser, there are a lot of choices, and if you aren’t going to do something a little different, a little off the beaten path, then you’ll get lost in the mix. Often we see one or two things we like in each boat, but Larson seems to have gone ahead and combined most of our favorite traits into one boat in the Cabrio 857. This new Cabrio is the latest in a series that represents the future of the company’s cruiser lineup.

Base MSRP: $91,022 without catalytic converter
