1997 Four Winns 278 Vista Cruiser in Harrison Township, Michigan

Stock #196934

Looking for a boat to comfortably spend the weekends away from the dock or to enjoy a day on the water? Look no further than this 1997 Four Winns 278 Vista! It has a complete galley, sleeping for 4, and an enclosed head to pamper you. The cockpit U-shape seating configuration is expansive. The twin Volvo 5.7L engines will get you up on plane and where you are going.

Entering the boat from the dock onto the swim platform you'll find a swim ladder, fresh water shower, grab handle and aft storage.

Pass into the cockpit through the port side walk-through transom with door you are greeted by a welcoming sizable area.

The U-shaped lounge to starboard wraps around from behind the helm, around the starboard side and along the aft of the cockpit.

Across from the U-shaped lounge is a conveniently integrated cooler storage space.

The double-wide helm bench has storage area beneath it and can be adjusted forward/backwards.

The helm gauges are easy to read and the switches for equipment are all within easy reach.

Notables at the helm are the trim tab controls, windlass controls, and a tilt steering wheel.

Integrated steps to the left of the helm station lead up to the walk-through windshield that makes getting to the foredeck easier and safer.

Below decks is laid out efficiently and also packs a lot of amenities while on the boat.

Just to the port of the entry steps is the galley.

The galley features a sink with cover, single burner stove, and a refrigerator. Cabinet and drawer storage are also provided to stow cooking gear and provisions.

The dinette located at the bow has U-shaped seating with a table on a pedestal. There are port holes on either side of the dinette area along with shelving and overhead lighting.

Below the dinette seat cushions are storage compartments.

By removing the table pedestal the table can be dropped down to form a double berth.

Mid-cabin to the starboard side is the enclosed head.

The enclosed head has a vanity sink with a faucet that has a wand to convert the head into a shower. There is a manual flush toilet, cabinet storage, a mirror, and a port hole that opens.

The queen size aft berth contains a port hole that opens to the cockpit area to allow in natural light and air, overhead lighting, cabinet and beneath the berth cushion storage.

There is a hanging locker located to starboard between the head and aft berth.

Advertisement is for vessel only. Trailer is not being offered for sale by POP Yachts.
