TAHOE 500 TS:
Sterndrive-Powered w/49.7 MPH WOT

TAHOE 500 TS
TAHOE 500 TS

Getting at the engine for daily checks can be a challenge in some smaller bowriders, but that’s not the case with the TAHOE 500 TS. She is a 19’10” (6.05 m) model in which the entire aft lounge and seat back assembly tilt up, supported by twin hydraulic pistons, to provide wide-open access to the MerCruiser power for daily checks. Note the amount of storage space on either side of the engine. We tested her with the optional 4.3-liter 220-hp engine, which produced impressive hole shots under 3 seconds as well as a top speed of 49.7 mph. More...

Sailfish 245 DC:
Secure Bowrider w/Seats for 12

Sailfish 245 DC
Sailfish 245 DC

Lots of freeboard both at the bow and well aft translates to a deep cockpit for added security in the Sailfish 245 DC. Combined with the large dual windshields, this should keep those in the cockpit dry and cozy even on upwind runs. She also has a full transom except for the walkthrough door to the swim platform, a plus in following seas. The company is known for building rugged offshore fishing boats, but the 245 DC is a family-fun platform first. She can handle up to 12 guests. More...

The elegant salon of the Monte Carlo Yachts 80 has an open-air feel thanks to sliding doors on either side of the dining area as well as glass doors that fold into multiple panels to open the aft deck to the salon. The aft lounges and dinette are on the same level, which enhances the feeling of spaciousness. Large side windows let in abundant natural light. The bulwarks on each side adjacent to the sliding doors can be dropped down to convert into wing balconies for drama and more deck room. More...

The Greenline 48 Fly, noted for environmentally-friendly dual diesel-electric power systems, also includes many user-friendly features that make her very livable, including the flip-up window and fold-out bar joining the galley with the aft deck.

High-Tech 2-Stroke w/Digital Control

Evinrude E-TEC G2 175 HP

The Evinrude E-TEC G2 175, like all in the series of high-tech 2-strokes, has digital shifting - which means quick, smooth, and quiet gear changes that are particularly important in the age of joystick steering with multiple engine installations. The SLX lower unit includes the same robust gears that are used in the G2-300 models, ensuring long-term durability. Integrated hydraulic steering and trim in the mid-section, also digitally controlled, protects the mechanisms from corrosion and allows clean, single-tube installation. More...
