Only 1 summer of use in freshwater. The boat drives amazingly and I would recommend it to any new boaters or experienced ones. I'd summarize it as great boat with low maintenance commitment that does its job very well.
The Crownline E235 XS has the sleek, racy style lines and ride of a sport boat, the comforts and conveniences of a deck boat….with an outboard engine! The White Suzuki 200 HP Outboard with Sea-Star hydraulic steering. And, it’s built on Crownline’s patented F.A.S.T. Tab® hull design, which stabilizes the hull for smooth, high speed turning and getting on plane fast! This boat is no slouch when it comes to performance.
Step inside through the walk thru transom (also notice the soft touch platform mat and handheld transom shower ) and check out the J-Shape cockpit, great fun and conversations will be had here! The pilot and first mate will be comfortable in the dual bucket seats with flip-up bolsters. The aft sun lounge is electric and easily adjusts from sitting up to lying flat – and all positions in between. Snap-in cockpit carpet, LED cockpit lighting and enclosed head compartment with handheld shower, sink with solid surface countertop, opening portlight and porta potti are standard features that will be appreciated by all. There’s tons of room to stow away all of your gear. Storage areas with impact resistant, non-marring coating for skis, boards and toys ensure a clutter-free boat. The side mount portable table stows away in the undermount cockpit storage drawer when not in use.
Additional standard features include a Kicker marine stereo with full color LCD display and variable dimmer with day / night mode, AM/FM weatherband multi-regional tuner, USB with iPod, iPhone and Android charge, AUX input and Bluetooth. There are eight Wetsounds speakers throughout the boat, a battery charger, bow flip-up arm rests, flush fit bow walk thru door, bimini top, bow and cockpit canvas, depth sounder, docking lights, dual battery switch and more.
Upgrades inlcude; Berber Carpet, Bow/Cockpit snap on cover, EZ loader galvanized aluminum trailer w/ swing tongue, and Ceramic Coating to keep the fiberglass looking new. Video below shows how water just bounces off the coating.
