Four Winns is a familiar name when it comes to fast and fun outboard-po sport boats that’d fit right into the summer time scene on Lake Washington. Right away, an observer will notice the build’s prominent features.
Firstly, it’s important to note that there are both inboard and outboard (OB) options. As far as the OB model is concerned, either the twin Mercury 250- or 300-horsepower engines are mounted onto a large swim step off the transom. The standard inboard options include single and twin Volvo Penta and single and twin Mercruiser diesels.
Aft and forward facing bench-style seating are oriented back-to-back in the cockpit. There’s an open galley and captain and co-captain chairs near the helm. Go forward past the helm and through a walkway and you end up at a nicely settled foredeck with cushioned seats.
While not apparent at first glance, there’s even a changing room with berth and enclosed Vacuflush head below that make this a natural island hopper
A transom shower will also be put to good use on those extended trips. The overall styling is very sleek and modern, and the buyer has several custom options to make their 290 their own.
If versatility and good times are the goal, the Four Winns Horizon 290 is probably worth a look. Local dealer Marine Servicenter has brand-new outboard models in stock starting from $203,846.
