Stingray 185 LS/LX Open Bow

Our 185L bowrider is like a Swiss Army Knife; it's compact but packed full of features seldom seen in a package this size.

Start at the helm, where you find a sporty Dino Italian steering wheel, and a full array of instruments, backlit and trimmed in rich woodgrain paneling. The dash has a lower rake than previous models for better visibility. You'll find a digital hour meter and a 12-volt receptacle for charging cell phones, spotlights, or other accessories.

On the passenger side is a locking glove box, oversized drink holder, heavy-duty stainless grab rail, a flat spot to mount electronics and a radio/CD mount recessed beneath the windshield for optimum protection.

The bow is wider and longer than the 180 predecessor. Solid stainless steel rails, not plastic handles, line the perimeter. Forward of the two well-padded, roll-and-pleated lounge seats is an insulated cooler with a non-skid hatch that doubles as a boarding step. Oversize drink holders flank the cooler.

The 185L is available in two seating configurations: X and S. The X model sports two adjustable buckets with a full-width rear lounge and sunpad. The S version offers a driver's bucket, an adjustable back-to-back lounge and aft jump seats.
