Boat Reviews By Owners
2002 -- 28' 2" FOURWINNS
Model: 268 VISTA
Cockpit: Well laid out, with seating for 6. Two person helm and an extended swim platform. The nice thing is that the exteded swim platform, cockpit and helm are on the same level.
Cabin: The best quality in its class. Blew away the Searay and Chapparell. All the amenities of a much larger boat with a big boat feel inside. The head is actually comfortable and usable.
Construction: Build like a fort.
Handling: I drove the 25 Doral, 26 chapparel, 24 searay Sundancer and they all pounded. The Fourwinns has a heavy solid ride. The others felt like my old 23 cuddy. With the Volvo 5.7 280 hp. she will cruise at 30 mph and top out at 44 mph.
Engine Room: Volvo 5.7 280 hp. duo prop. Strong engine. From what I read in a report the Volvo will out perform the Mercury equivalent in all aspects. It is very smooth and quiet. I had a Merc. in my prior boat and am sold on Volvo.
General Comments: We use the boat for 2-3 day cruises with my wife and two childern. We all love the boat and the activities it allows us to participate in. We are looking to move up and the Fourwinns 348 is a strong consideration
