The Monterey 180 FS is marketed as a highend boat, but it certainly has the performance and the luxury features to justify the asking price which is very fair!
This is Monterey's 180 FS it is a deep and beam bowrider measuring 20 feet, 3 inches in length with the optional swim platform. At this size, it provides ample seating for adults in the bow area, as well as a spacious main cockpit with helm and companion seats that swivel to face aft, making the boat like a floating dock anywhere you want to stop and drop anchor.
A popular new feature in this class of boat is to have not only a telescoping boarding ladder on the swim platform, but also a second one at the bow. This is particularly handy if you have a gang of people all in the water at once. As well, sometimes it's easier to retrieve a fallen skier by the bow rather than the stern. Since the standard boat includes a reasonably sized swim area anyway, the area is perfect for a rider to put his board on before he jumps in the water. Also at the stern is a drained cooler, tow eye and full-width sun pad over the engine, which lifts up to deliver engine inspection access.
The starboard side of the sun pad is also removable, making a full transom walk-through, which is a very handy feature for older people or during tow sport duties. Everybody likes to have fun I love this feature.
I especially liked the helm treatment. Monterey has finished the dash in gunmetal grey to reduce reflections and the brushed aluminum instruments look terrific.
The well-located tilt steering wheel and perfectly positioned throttle were also great, and the steering effort and throttle action were both excellent. This Monterey is well equipped with the Volvo 5.0 GXI engine. This V8 is very smooth, delivering impressive power and top speed. She can reach planing speeds in only 3.7 seconds, 30 mph in 4.7 seconds and raced on to a top speed of 51.2 mph. The boat is running a standard 21-inch, three-blade prop. Now that's just nice!
At wakeboard speeds, the Monterey's Air Assist Chine wanted to help the boat plane off instead of drag a big wake. For wakeboard duties, you need to trim the engine and load the boat down with friends.. It is a handsome and effective arrangement, but provides a handy place to stow the Bimini roof.
Monterey includes a full fiberglass inner liner with a cavernous ski locker in the floor of the 180 FS. It's an easy maintenance design.
Overall, the interior is very posh with conveniently located handholds, a cooler built into the companion side dashboard, stereo system with remote controls and impressively upholstered side panels with lots of storage. Other luxurious touches included an hour meter and depth finder on the dashboard.
The Monterey 180 FS is a great boat for family and friends all around!
