This 2003 Crownline 288 BR, located in Stratford, CT, is powered by twin Mercruiser 5.0L MPI engines with Bravo III outdrives. This is a well-maintained boat with only 310 hours.

This boat was ahead of its time as one of the early Jumbo Bowriders that are so much in fashion today. With her wide beam and substantial 8,000 pound displacement, she's big enough to accommodate a small crowd and tough enough to handle an offshore chop.

Like any good bowrider, the 288 is all about versatility and passenger comfort. Notable features include:

  • Wet bar with 12V refrigerator and sink with pressure water
  • Spacious enclosed head compartment with porcelain head (holding tank & deck pump-out), sink with pressure water, vanity, opening port, and changing seat
  • Unique sidewall entry gate with a foldaway step to starboard in the cockpit, just forward of the aft bench seat
  • Mini cabin concealed within the driverside console, accessed from the bow seating area, this small compartment houses a cushioned berth with port light suitable for catching a quick nap
  • At the helm, a double flip-up bolster seat allows for standup driving.
  • Extended swim platform (not currently installed)
  • Woodgrain dash, in floor ski/wakeboard locker, windshield vents, tilt wheel, and plenty of drink holders

This is a great boat for family & friends – lots of them! Come take a look before this one gets away!
