2011 Mariah 19 R Bowrider
- Stock #028529 -
This boat reaches 50 mph with this 4.3 Mercruiser which is plenty of power and plenty fast for a boat this size. Figure on cruising in the mid-30s for max fuel economy. Thirty-eight gallons of gas should be enough for a long day of fun if you don't lean too hard on the throttle. The MPI Merc will provide extra boost for launching a skier or wakeboarder - if you're thinking young, you're thinking wakeboard - even with a boatload of folks onboard.
The R19.9 isn't an offshore speedboat. Although deadrise is a healthy 19-degrees, sharp enough for relatively comfortable riding when braced against a leaning post or jammed in a bolster, aboard the R19.9 you're sitting down. In any kind of chop, at top speed your lower back will be begging for mercy. Some things about aging we can't overcome with thinking young. (The helm seat includes a flip-up pad that creates a quasi-bolster, but it's probably more effective for improving the helmsman's sight lines than for rough-water running.)
There's draining stowage under the cockpit sole for water skis or wakeboards, just what you need in a boat that begs you to have fun. A wakeboard tower with rack is optional, too. Aft, there's the usual full-beam bench seat with stowage under, in this case including a handy niche for a removable 36-qt. cooler. Aft of that is a sunpad with engine access underneath, and aft of that, a swim platform.
No surprises here, but how else would you lay out a boat this size with these features If the standard, molded-in swim platform isn't enough for you, an add-on extension, with ladder, is optional. We like this option because it extends over the prop which means swimmers can slip into the water with out worrying about getting cut by the prop.
Mariah uses a premium 33-ounce vinyl with UV and mold protection, so your upholstery should last quite a while before fading or deteriorating
What makes a bowrider is, of course, the bow, and aboard the R19.9 this is a cozy, well-equipped space that's fine for a couple of kids or maybe just a single adult. It's nicely padded all around, with grab rails, drink holders and, optionally, stereo speakers. A Jensen stereo/CD player with MP3 connection and 4 speakers.
Mariah uses proven hand-layups based on knitted fabmat and polyester resin, finished with high-gloss, long-lasting isophthalic gelcoat. The hull and deck are joined with both adhesive and mechanical fastenings, the joint protected by a stainless-steel rubrail.
The composite cockpit sole (there is no wood in any Mariah boat's construction) is fiberglassed directly to the foam-filled stringers to create a rigid structure, and covered with 20-oz. marine carpet; finished fiberglass in place of carpet is optional. The transom, traditionally a source of problems when cored with plywood, is in this case built around composite Penske board. Construction is NMMA-certified, and Mariah covers the boat with a limited lifetime hull warranty.
