Brief Summary

The 185 is now Stingray’s entry level bowrider. Just because it is entry level, don’t think it means you get just the basics and lack the power and performance! The 185 has the same Z-planing hull design they patented that gives you 3 point planing with the extended running surface. This multi-purpose boat fits the need of a family that likes to fish, ski and cruise yet fits into the family budget without breaking it. Two versions of this model allow you to decide the best fit for you. The LX version has a full bench seat across the stern with two adjustable bucket seats for the driver and navigator while the LS version has the back-to-back lounger and aft jump seats separated by the engine box.
