Four Winns Horizon 350 OB
Four Winns Horizon 350 OB

Outboard power is becoming increasingly popular on sportboats and bowriders, but in many, the transom-mounted engines leave only small platforms port and starboard and little more than a catwalk between them. That’s not the case with the Four Winns Horizon 350 OB, where the swim platform has 3’5” (1.04 m) of space for hanging out and launching watersports on each side of the outboards. Three adults can sit on the electronically-adjustable aft bench seat, which has adjacent audio controls and cup holders. More...

The test boat, powered with a Yamaha F200, planed in just 3.4 seconds with two aboard and a full fuel tank, an indication that the design works as intended. More...
