Cruiser Sport Series Bow Rider SS278

How badly did we want to own the best boat in their class? We created an innovative convertible rear SunPad that folds up to expose almost two extra feet of useable deck space. We gave them a ride that is big-boat smooth and quiet – even at higher speeds. In other words, we did everything we could to make sure that the SS 278 is the best boat on the water.
