The New Family Vehicle
If you need a bowrider that has a bit more room than the entry level 18 footers, or if you are in the market for your first upgrade, then take a look at the Tahoe Q7i SS. It’s a fun and affordable sportboat package that will leave little else for you to buy, short of skis or tubes. Measuring 20’6” overall with a beam of 8’, the Q7i SS has a stated USCG capacity limit of nine persons. That’s a mathematical conclusion, but the reality is that you’ll have seating for 7 or 8 comfortably, while still having room for maintaining a social atmosphere.
Check out the Standard Features...
The adjustable swivel bucket seats are standard, and the captain also enjoys the flip up bolster. The passenger gets control of the Sirius-ready AM/FM/CD player with MP3 jack, and has a glove box, non-skid storage tray for the cell phone, and an insulated ice chest. Up forward, the two lounge seats have insulated storage underneath. This is a great spot for loading the food and iced sodas, so rather than waste this space on storage for life jackets, here’s yet another good opportunity/excuse to have all your passengers wearing them. The full width bench seats at the stern have storage under the center, and the port jump seat is removable, allowing for a walk-through transom.
The full width integral swim platform features a flip-out boarding ladder and there’s additional drink storage in insulated compartments at either end. A total of nine drink holders, and ski wakeboard storage between the two bucket seats round out the entertainment package.
Standard Power Package…
Tahoe packages the Q7i SS with a standard MerCruiser 4.3L 190-hp V-6 engine. If you consistently fill the boat with friends, or do a lot of skiing or wakeboarding, then you have nine other engine options up to and including a MerCruiser 350 MAG Multi Port Injected 300-hp V-8 with a dual prop Bravo 3 outdrive. That will have you pulling Dumbo up on skis in a heart beat.
Tahoe throws in, as standard, a custom matched dual axle trailer equipped with brakes, submersible lights, and a swing away tongue jack. The entire package, with the 4.3L 190-hp V-6 and trailer, is priced at a no hassle, no haggle $24,995, plus freight and dealer prep.
