Glastron GTS 225 (2015-)

1 x 270-hp Volvo Penta V8-270



Brief Summary

The Glastron GTS 225 is a good example of a sportboat that has a bit of a “retro” look to her -- yet is also as modern as today's latest trends. She’s available in two versions, the standard GT and the sportier GTS model. We took the GTS version of the 225 for a hard test to see if we could detect hull deflection, loose hardware, or contra-ergonomic design elements. She is, after all, a boat sold at a very competitive price, so rather than giving her a free pass as a result, we did just the opposite and were perhaps more demanding than usual, looking for a corner that might have been cut.
