Brief Summary

Rinker needed to fill a gap on their lineup that existed between their 18' (5.5m) and 21' (6.4) models and were able to do so with the new 196 Captivas, of which there are two versions, one a sterndrive and the other an outboard. The separate versions also help Rinker appeal to a wider audience. We recently tested Rinkers latest offerings against the gorgeous backdrop of the historic Portage Point Inn just off of Lake Michigan and came away with an interesting mix of the old and the new.
