Cruisers Sport Series 238 Bow Rider (2015-)

1 x 250-hp MerCruiser 4.5L MPI



Brief Summary

We tested four Cruisers Sport Series sportboats in two days ranging from the 238 Bow Rider up to the 298 Bow Rider and during that time we had the opportunity to compare the ride and functionality of each. The surprising discovery was that the smallest of the four, the 238 Bow Rider seen above, rode nearly as well as the the bigger boats. Our report will explain why as well as to report on how Mercury's new 4.5 L 250-hp sterndrive performed. The bottom line is she has the heft and feel of a much bigger boat.
