Sea Ray Bowrider boat w/ V-6 4.3 Mercruiser Alpha sterndrive

take a look at the extended add-on swim platform and engine box cover

A Sea Ray bowrider boat is all about the interior cockpit and add-on swim platform. If that does not WOW you, then the boat fails as a consideration for your family.

It’s the smallest Sea Ray available with a power steering V-6 engine. That makes it a fine tow boat for a family and its water sports; like tubing, wakeboarding, wake surfing, and water skiing. This is a Chevrolet based car engine marinized by Mercury Marine for Sea Ray using marine parts and adding a Mercruiser Alpha I model sterndrive to make up the power package. With this engine you automatically get power steering so every member of the family can steer the boat and the reliability and have the ease of a Mercruiser power package. Marine parts, like a marine exhaust manifold, are always easy to find with a Mercury Marine product.

storage under the bench seat in front of the engine room

This Sea Ray has an LOA of 19’ 8” including the add-on swim platform. A big percentage of that LOA is in that water access swim area and engine room. The water access is important to a Sea Ray owner of this boat, as is the feeling of the high grade of finish in the main cockpit.

With the V-6 top power added to this size boat featuring a medium vee running bottom shape and you will see speeds in the high 40s every day you take her out for a spin. This package is a low cost boat insurance and boat loan rig, too.

lots of engine access on the bucket seat cockpit option

Short comings? The lack of room and comfort for the folks seating up in front of the windshield. Its almost more fiberglass than vinyl cushions up there to Chris Brown or seabuddy’s eye.
