Used open boats: 5 models not to be missed

Boston Whaler 230 Vantage

Beautiful and powerful, the 230 Vantage is a bowrider that gives up neither comfort nor safety for smooth sailing with the family. Boston Whaler has created a series of boats that happily marry the needs of watersports enthusiasts with those of family boaters. It also adds to a very pleasing look, with muted hull tints embellished with a red insert along the waterline. The 230 Vantage has a spacious bow area, further expanded by the classic square bow that characterizes almost all of the American shipyard’s open production.

This area is a comfortable living room with cushions, backrests and cup holders; all of which can also be used as an extended sunbathing area. The cockpit is fully equipped for comfortable living aboard, dining and relaxing without delay. Here, in fact, there are several seats that, thanks to the possibility of translating the backrest, can compose a nice dinette, which is also served by a kitchen cabinet. When it comes time for sports, you can decide whether to frolic on a wakeboard or do a quieter activity such as fishing.

Hair Cap 25 Open

At seven meters, this open leaves room for the most diverse desires of those on board, from relaxing to fishing and more. A fine example of a highly multipurpose open, suitable for many types of use, from water skiing, to simple relaxation, to fishing.

It can be equipped by choosing from four Yamaha engine powers (1×225, 250 or 300 hp or 2×150 hp), so as to accommodate different performance and speed requirements as well. In short, it is the right boat for everything. When sailing, you can keep the cockpit in its basic configuration, that is, with the ability to make use of the aft sofa and all the free space to move around, which also comes in very handy in case you want to do some sport fishing.

Fishermen can then appreciate the wooden gunwales for use as rod holders and the ease of movement on board, even in the direction of the bow, thanks to the center console, which leaves room for two convenient walkways. In the bow, you can also remove the sunbathing cushions and take advantage of the large free space for working on caught fish as well. For relaxation, the entire free cockpit area can be transformed into an extended sunbathing area, also served by a molded cup holder.

Cobalt 200

Compact on the outside, spacious and very enjoyable on board. The quality of the finish gives this bowrider an extra touch of class. Not surprisingly, the design was based on increased width on board and careful ergonomic research, resulting in sunbathing surfaces, chaise lounges, and armchairs of maximum size and comfort with newly designed upholstery and beautiful, long-lasting fabrics. It can be enjoyed with family and many friends because the relaxation spaces and seating are similar to larger boats. Everywhere there are storage compartments and holders set up to store useful accessories for water fun and water sports, from diving to water skiing, but more generally there are many details to discover and appreciate on this boat. The Cobalt 200 is a fast powerboat that offers beautiful driving excitement and a command post that can be adjusted in positions to suit different situations. Performance panders to the demands of quick glide, acceleration, speed and course keeping, thanks to the hull, which also adopts Kevlar reinforcements to increase its strength.

Jeanneau Cap Camarat 6.5 CC

Center Console version of Jeanneau’s Cap Camarat 6.5, featuring a fully open and spacious deck. It is an innovatively designed boat suitable for pleasant day trips. On board, comfort is assured thanks to a perfectly balanced distribution of space. A comfortable C-shaped settee in the bow and a seat in front of the helm station do not preclude a good amount of room to move around, and this same small living area can turn into a large sundeck for those who just can’t give up the perfect tan. Access to the helm station is facilitated by two side passages created precisely due to the fact that the boat is center console and aft, in addition to two seats in front of the maneuvering station, another linear sofa provides additional seating space. Compared with other models

Cap Camarat 6.5, the CC differs in that it has a completely open deck; but, like the other models, it has all the qualities that characterize Jeanneau.

Sea Ray 220 Sundeck

Beautiful, comfortable and vesatile. It is a U.S.-made bowrider that is appreciated for its aesthetic qualities and ability to entertain. Sea Ray has already accustomed us to beautiful, extensively maintained boats even in the smaller open range. And the Sea Ray 220 Sundeck could not be outdone. The wide choice of hull colors, matched with matching cushions, an aggressive-as well as useful-looking roll bar, give this boat an appearance of a certain elegance, even though it is an absolutely sporty open. In this regard, the 220 Sundeck is the perfect vehicle for those who enjoy water skiing or wakeboarding, but its wide swim platform and ease of access makes it

Also ideal for divers. Of course, nothing is lacking for relaxation either, starting with the large aft sundeck, which is in perfect contact with the couch in the cockpit, so as to broaden the conversation between those lying in the sun and those relaxing sitting on the couch. Two more chaise longues sundecks are in the forward cockpit, which is convenient to reach through the passagecenter and windshield opening.
