STRATOS 476SF - Room for family, fun and fishing for under $20,000
MURFREESBORO, TENN. (August 17, 2007)
Taking part in the boating lifestyle doesn't have to break the family's bank account. For years, families have said what they needed - and most importantly, what they wanted - in a boat for all-around family fun. New for 2008, Stratos responds to these wants and needs with the new 476SF, a 17-foot, 6-inch fish 'n' play that fits easily into any family's lifestyle for under $20,000.
The biggest 17-and-a-half-foot boat in its class, the Stratos 476SF sports a 93-inch beam and is rated for a maximum 115 horsepower - plenty of power to pull skis and tubes or for rushing to the hottest fishing spots on the lake. Positioned comfortably behind the walk-thru windshield, the pedestal seats at the helm and port side as well as the three-across bench seat in the back, sit low in the cockpit providing extra peace of mind. Designed for optimum comfort and versatility, the adjustable cockpit seating boasts even more legroom.
If it's water sports that the family wants, the Stratos 476F has ski storage in between the port and starboard pedestal seats. When soaking up the sun seems like more fun, there's cushioned bench seating forward of the walk-thru windshield on top of the large storage compartments. And when it gets too hot, the boat also features a built-in insulated cooler behind the bench seat to keep everyone's favorite beverages ice cold.
Whenever it's time to fish, the Stratos 476SF is just as at home with a 40-pound Minn Kota trolling motor, Humminbird PiranhaMax 215 electronics at the console, aerated livewell and pedestal seats that can be mounted on the front and rear fishing positions.
Measuring 19 feet, 6 inches on the trailer with the swing-away tongue open, the Stratos 476SF can be stored easily in most garages and features easy access to batteries and breakers, making it a joy to own and use. With a standard boarding ladder and seating configuration ideal for families, the Stratos 476SF brings the joys of water sports even closer while delivering a higher quality of life and a great bottom line.
