Anybody reading this having a mid-life crisis? Are you thinking of cashing in your IRA, buying a red Porsche and a bag of clubs or trying your hand at schmoozing a Denny’s waitresses? Forget it – buy a Four Winns V 265 instead, leave the kids home and take your significant other for a cruise. You’ll have more fun and won’t get in as much trouble. For not much more than $100K (base $91,507 with a 300-hp Volvo-Penta), you’ll get a nicely equipped pocket cruiser fast enough for chasing around on day trips, comfortable enough for summer cruising, versatile enough for almost any waterborne activity. (O.K., except hard-core fishing.) If you have to take the kids, so be it – there’s room for a couple of pre-teens aboard this 26-footer – but this is really an ideal boat for a young, or young-at-heart, couple in search of aquatic adventures.
