Knoxville, Tenn. - Back for model-year 2008, the popular 195 Sport from Sea Ray® is still making waves and turning heads. With swooping lines that make it look swift even at a full stop, this little beauty embodies both the sizzle and the steak. "We designed the 195 Sport to stand apart from the 'sea of sameness' that is so prevalent in the 17- to 20-foot market today," says Robin Brendle, sport boats sales manager at Sea Ray's corporate headquarters. "It has exciting and distinctive styling, along with standard features that you don't find on most entry level products."
True to form, the team at Sea Ray has crafted a bodacious boat available in a variety of dynamic colors. The 195 Sport offers ample space for a boatload of friends to join the party. Snazzy-looking bucket seats with new silver vinyl accents give the captain and first mate a first-class ride, while unique ergonomically designed bow seating adds style and comfort with conveniently located grab handles. The innovative aft seating configuration features a fold-down center armrest with built-in cup holders.
When it's time for a swim, you'll enjoy safe and easy access to the water via the three-step ladder on the standard extended swim platform. The versatile optional Wakeboard Package includes a sleek tubular, aluminum water sports tower with an integrated bimini top, wakeboard racks, snap-in carpet, new extreme hull graphics and an upgraded stereo system.
Fun features at the helm include standard power steering, padded tilt-steering wheel, tachometer and lighted toggle switches. A standard Clarion® stereo with CD player is safely tucked inside the glove box, to keep the unit dry and the tunes coming. An additional 12-volt outlet keeps cell phones or handheld devices charged and readily available.
The innovative gull-wing sun pad includes gas-assisted lifts for easy access to engine and storage from both the cockpit and the swim platform. Heavy-duty vinyl matting protects the ski and wakeboard storage compartment. Like all Sea Rays, the 195 Sport delivers rock-solid quality and durability with its finished fiberglass floor, stainless steel hardware, thru-bolted cleats and fiberglass stinger system. And as you would expect, it carries a limited-lifetime structural warranty on the hull and deck.
The 195 Sport is spirited and responsive, powered by a standard 190-hp MerCruiser® 4.3L Alpha 1 sterndrive. And thanks to the Turn-Key Starting (TKS) system, the 195 Sport is a breeze to operate. Turn-Key Starting provides quick and reliable starting for carbureted engines, and multiport fuel-injected engine options are also available. Rev up the 260 horses with the optional MerCruiser® 5.0L MPI Alpha 1, and you'll generate plenty of pull to satisfy even the most energetic water sport enthusiasts. In addition, Sea Ray's status as a MerCruiser® Installation Quality Certified Manufacturer means the 195 Sport comes standard with a two-year engine warranty.
When it's time to head inland, the 195 Sport can be easily towed behind most family cars using the custom-fitted tandem axle trailer that comes standard with surge brakes and swing-away tongue. Just park the 195 Sport in your garage or carport ... where it will be ready and waiting for your next adventure. And making the neighbors jealous.
