2006 Four Winns Vista 278 Cruiser in Bronx, New York

Stock #197171

If you are looking for a big cruiser that is legally trailerable, with no more than 8'6" of beam, the Four Winns Vista 278 may be the boat for you.

Why? Because often new, as well as seasoned boaters like to try out different boating venues, do not want to be confined to waters within a few hours motoring. Maybe you try a season or vacation on a lake, or that vacation home you rented on the Carolina coastline.

A large, overnight-capable boat that can be easily and economically transported to different locations enables folks to discover what types of boating they enjoy without committing to slip or storage contracts, and if deciding to later upgrade to a bigger boat once they know where they prefer to operate, a boat that can be trailered is much easier to sell to folks much farther away.

Trailerable express cruisers don't get any bigger than this one, and there is much to like about this boat from the standpoint of design and engineering, Four Winns builds a quality product and it shows.

The cockpit layout makes the best use possible of the boat's limited beam with seating for four and a removable snack table that converts into a sun pad.

A mini wet bar to port includes a carry-on cooler that fits under the counter, and the transom storage locker conceals but makes readily accessible the fenders, lines and other clutter that otherwise would intrude upon cockpit space and mobility in real world boating operations.

The helm is fully instrumented, sculpted, modern and ergonomic, the double fold-up bolster seating is great for the couple that likes to everything as closely together as possible.

Below decks, the accommodations are nicely appointed, a convertible dinette in the bow sleeps two people, while a small aft cabin offers space for two more.

The galley is equipped with the usual, sink, stove, fridge and microwave, pretty much the same as larger boats,simply less counter space.

Same as well with the head, with toilet, sink, vanity and pull-out shower head, sufficient to the need and comfortably sized.

The cherry trim and cabinetry is well finished, the color scheme is what one could call "timeless contemporary", pleasing to the eye with nothing that jumps out, will not look dated in another decade and the six-foot headroom is adequate for most.

A single multi-port fuel injected 320hp Volvo engine with reliable and efficient Duo-Prop drive will get the boat up over 30 mph, and the engine is equipped with the Neutra-Salt system for added longevity.

So, if the price and "crossover SUV" styling of the current crop of new so-called "pocket cruisers" does not float your boat, so to speak, perhaps you may choose to try saving buckets of money and try floating around in something like this.
