Sweetwater SW 2286 SFL:
New 3-Cylinder Evinrude Engine
For Pontoon Boat Power

BOAT NAME
Sweetwater SW 2286 SFL

We tested a Sweetwater SW 2286 SFL pontoon with a 150-hp Evinrude E-TEC G2, the all-new lightweight 3-cylinder 2-stroke from Evinrude. Its prodigious torque is produced because it is 2-stroke and has the Rotax Adjustable Valve Exhaust (RAVE) system. This proven technology essentially supercharges the combustion chamber with air expelled from the cylinder and bounces it back into the combustion chamber. See how the boat performs with this new engine. More...

Schaefer Yachts 510 Sport:
Clean, Modern Styling in a Sport Yacht

Schaefer Yachts 510 Sport
Schaefer Yachts 510 Sport

The salon of the Schaefer Yachts 510 Sport has the same modernistic but understated styling found throughout the interior. The galley is completely out of sight under high-gloss lacquer countertops on the starboard side. The salon seating and table are elevated slightly that give better sight lines for guests and the huge sliding sunroof gives the whole area an al fresco feel. More...

Formula 330 Crossover Bowrider:
Roomy Bowrider w/Weekender Accommodations

BOAT NAME
Formula 330 Crossover Bowrider

The Formula 330 Crossover Bowrider has the open seating up front that defines the genre, but designers also managed to fit compact overnight accommodations below. The seating converts to a bunk for two, and the space also includes a microwave and a wet head. A sliding window brings in light and air. On deck, a large table fits into the bow for al fresco dining, or drops to form the base of a sun pad. Two added pedestal tables can be fitted to the conversation area in the cockpit aft, and there’s a pull-out refrigerated drawer and a wet bar in the cockpit. More...

Ready for Trailering to Family Fun

Boston Whaler 190 Montauk
Boston Whaler 190 Montauk

The Boston Whaler 190 Montauk is the right size for trailering with an 8’ (2.43 m) beam and a ready-to-run weight of 3,131 lbs. (1,420 kg). She comes packaged with a tandem-axle, galvanized trailer that includes brakes and a fold-away tongue for easier garaging. We tested her with a 150-hp Mercury FourStroke and found her quick to get on plane, just 3.3 seconds while top speed was 46.9 mph. Best cruise was at 3500 rpm and 25.9 mph, at which she got 5.3 mpg -- impressive for a boat rated to carry up to eight. More...

Neptunus 650 Flybridge:
Cozy, Versatile Flybridge

BOAT NAME
Neptunus 650 Flybridge

Take a look around the flying bridge of the Neptunus 650 and it’s amazing to see how much thought went into it. A J-shaped lounging area aft, a full dining area ahead complete with fixed stools, and another lounger to port with an adjustable back to convert from aft to forward-facing plus the addition of two entertainment centers to include a sink, refrigerator, and icemaker complete the picture. And it all can be fully enclosed and climate controlled with isinglass. More...
