VERY ROOMY GLASTRON 185 GX Ski/Fish MODEL!!! FRESH WATER!!
*** 2002 Glastron GX 185 SF (Ski & Fish) ***
ROOOOMY!!! That is the word with the Glastron 185 GX....
Pack out a typical 18-foot bowrider with four adults, two kids, a bunch of gear and water toys ... and see how long it takes for cabin fever to set in. Or worse, see who draws first blood!!
That isn't the case with the Glastron GX 185. It's bruise-free, scratch-free ... and claustrophobia-free with a gang of six. It's also a breeze to drive and maneuver, making it one of the better entry-level runabouts on the market.
Start with the padding. It's everywhere -- along the gunwales, in the walkthrough to the bow, around the edges of the helm station and at the driver's throttle elbow. Genmar's patented VEC construction also means you won't catch a finger on unfinished fiberglass inside any compartments -- it's all smooth.
There's enough room at the driver and passenger stations for a 6-foot-4 person to lock out his knees. One tester actually had to slide the seat forward to drive. That doesn't happen often on an 18-foot bowrider. (In his haste, he slide the seat too far and bumped his knees on the dash, which was not painful because the dash is padded too.)
Adding to the sporty image of the GX 185 is a wraparound windshield that stretches clear back to the rear bench seat. That also adds depth and security in the cockpit.
Safety features are evident at speed too. There's virtually no loss of horizon out of the hole and as the radar climbs in heavy chop the Super Stable V lives up to its moniker. It's solid on the water like a tri-hull, but turns crisply like a V-hull. The reversed chine knocks down spray and the resulting wake at 20 mph is, among recreational bowriders, as clean as we've seen for wakeboarding and kneeboarding.
Add one more comfort area around the GX 185: gripping a handle 75 feet back.****
Adding the Ski-Fish Package gives you the best of the Ski world...then adding the conveniences to drop off the family and head out for a day of fishing!
