Boat Reviews By Owners
1997 -- 19' 8" CELEBRITY (Bombardier)
Model: Celebrity 200
Cockpit: Cockpit is fine but the seat sits low like a sportscar. Visibility is poor and I find myself sitting on the top of the leanback to see. But I am a pontoon guy.
Cabin: Bowrider. Large with center cushions which makes it a platform. The bow light is very nice @ night
Construction: Very well built. I added a urethane dam at the center rt & lt windshield to keep the water out when covered. Nice built-in rear ladder. Does not chine or bounce even when trimmed up and full throttle
Handling: Handles very well. Prop ventilates when trimming up long before she starts dancing (51 mph GPS 60+ speedo)
Engine Room: 260 hp carb 5.7 Merc Alpha one. 1.48 drive. 19 pitch al prop 46 mph 4500 rpm, 21 pitch Laser II 51 mph 4250 rpm. Power Steering, remote oil tank for outdrive.
General Comments: Mostly just cruise around treating her like a pontoon. Occationally run her full out by myself to be sure she still runs well.
