ERE’S a sneak peek at Mus­tang Marine’s soon-tobe-re­leased 2850 Sports and Su­per Sports cruis­ers.

Based on the pop­u­lar 2800 Sports Cruiser, the new mod­els hit wa­ter last month .

Th­ese very mod­ern-looking craft — avail­able from a base price of $155,000 — are be­ing billed as ‘‘en­try level’’ for those keen on lux­ury sports boat­ing.

And they get the full treat­ment, with a spe­cial fo­cus on en­ter­tain­ment space.

This was achieved by mak­ing the craft beamier to pro­vide ex­tra room in the cock­pit and be­low decks.

The gal­ley has been moved from the down­stairs cabin to the cock­pit to make for a roomier sa­loon.

HThe new Mus­tangs also get the lat­est in on­board en­ter­tain­ment.

Down be­low there is room to sleep up to five peo­ple, and sep­a­rate full-stand­ing head­room shower and toi­let com­part­ments.

There’s plenty of wiz­ardry at the busi­ness end, with a touch-screen con­trol panel, Fin­scan fin­ger­print start­ing tech­nol­ogy and Smart Craft gauges.

Steps lead to the fore­deck, with a board­ing lad­der at both the stern and bow for ac­cess.

En­gine op­tions run to a Mercruiser 350 MPI Bravo 3 (DTS), the Mercruiser 496 or Volvo D4 duo prop, all with stain­less steel pro­pel­lers, elec­tronic con­trols and a two-year war­ranty. www.mus­tang­ma­
