Imagine yourself aboard any of these 16 new sport coupes, express cruisers and crossovers that deliver comfort, performance and eye-catching style.
T oday’s sport coupes, express cruisers and crossovers dish up luxury, comfort and performance for boaters with a wide range of onthe-water interests. The boats have become more stylish, too. During the past decade, thanks to design influences from Europe, we no longer see coupes or express cruisers with multi-tier decks or high- sided, cramped designs. Replacing them are eye-catching models with loads of interior space, intelligent deck designs and inspiring performance.
Crossovers, which are also called sportsboats, day- boats or sport-utility boats, have also evolved. These designs offer a platform for cruising, fishing, scuba diving, hopping around to waterfront bars and restaurants, entertaining guests, or all of the above. Their utilitarian nature allows boaters to use them and then simply hose them off at the end of the day.
Here are 16 sport coupes, express cruisers, crossovers and day boats that have hit the scene since the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in November. See if there aren’t one or two here that tempt you to into new boating adventures.
