The Four Winns line of motor boats charges into the new year with the 2018 iteration of their popular Vista 275. This boat is more than your normal runabout with plenty of entertainment-related features to maximize time on the Columbia River or Lake Washington and runs to the San Juans.
The open cockpit resembles a Swiss Army knife in that most aspects of the seating arrangement can be folded, tilted, swiveled, combined, etc. Bench seating transforms into a sumptuous lounger and a wingman seat can be deployed near the racecar-style helm station to keep the skipper company. Also on deck is a wet bar with fridge, 110-volt electric grill, sink, and storage and access to the large swim step aft.
Below in the cabin is where the 275 proves it can be a very capable weekender. An enclosed head, foldable table with seating that transforms into a large berth, and a full galley are all down there, far more than the sleek modern styling of the exterior would suggest at initial glance.
As far as the guts are concerned, the new 2018 iteration is powered by a 350-horsepower gas MerCruiser inboard. The manufacturer claims a cruising speed of 26 knots and a maximum speed of about 35 knots.
There’s definitely more to the Four Winns Vista 275 than at first glance, with highly adjustable accommodations and plenty of overnight potential. Interested?
