This year, Manitou set out to make some changes in the Oasis line and move to a new name, the Cruise. What lies beneath the quaint “cruise” moniker, though, is some really solid performance and some handling like you would not believe comes from a boat built on pontoons. Hauling over on the wheel at cruise speed is usually not a safe or comfortable thing to do, but with this series, you find you have more cornering and speed through such a turn than you generally get with a bowrider!
