Hand-in-hand with the best - The Four Winns V275
Bill Winn Sr. and three sons of his bought a small boat company in upstate Cadillac, Michigan. The name of the company was Safe-T-Mate. In order to expand the business and take complete control over the company, he moved his family there too. This moment marked the outset of the family-owned business which matured into one of the most monumental manufacturers of fiberglass recreational products called Four Winns. Nowadays, the Four Winns belongs to a part of Rec Boat Holdings which also comprises of Glastron and Wellcraft. The shipyard includes a whole range of boats like cuddies, deck boats, sports boats, runabouts and cruisers from 18 to 48 feet. They also encompass various boat series like HD series, RS Sundowner, Horizon, TS, Signature, and Vista. The spirit of utmost perfected warmth, comfort and design pervades the Vista series. Their express cruisers are marvelous crafts with plenty of amenities and features included as standard equipment. They are the tickets for the best matches. The Four Winns V275 belongs to the Vista series of cruisers from 26 to 48 feet. Let’s probe into the V275 review.
The overall length of the Four Winns V275 is 28 feet and has a beam of 9 feet and 2 inches. The engine option list is pretty long for this charmer. Nevertheless, to make a long story short, it basically falls down to five engine options. The first three choices include MerCruiser Bravo III ranging in power from 300, 320 to 380 horsepower. The latter two possess Digital Throttle and Shift (DTS). The fourth and fifth options consist of two Duo-Prop Volvo Penta. The fourth one has 300 horsepower and the fifth one has 320 horsepower. Further, the fifth engine possesses Electronic Vessel Control (EVC). The performance is advanced with the Stable-Vee SC (split chins) hull. The hull knocks the socks off with its design which meets the needs of the most demanding clients in the market. The hull is quite big, and one can pick out of five colors – white, red, gray, navy blue and black.
Starting aft, from the swim platform, one notices the finest swim ladder on the market. Three substantial components are linked to the swim platform ladder. First off, the ladder is pretty deep because of the four steps. Secondly, it is large and finally, the angle of the step alleviates the climbing. The platform itself is immense and extremely functional. One enters the cockpit via the transom door which is located roughly at the center. The cockpit is at the same level, no steps included whatsoever which boosts the safety part of the boat. Hereupon, to port, there is the cockpit galley/wet bar. One can even denote this vessel as an 'a la carte' boat. The concept of the galley can be designed according to the client’s wishes. The Corian countertop is available. Further, a television is an option as well. One can use the TV both outside and inside. A fridge and electric grill are also an option for the galley.
A double-wide facing lounge is situated opposite the galley to starboard. This comfy lounge can be transformed from seating to a sunpad and vice versa. A cockpit table is also available. The double-wide helm lounge of the Four Winns V275 is big enough for two, or even three smaller people. It is designed in a way that while the skipper is driving the boat, he is still in the proximity of his guests. The flip-up bolster comes as optional equipment. A black, wide stitched helm panel gives that well-to-do feeling. The black color of the panel decreases the reflection glare from the windshield. The standard equipment includes normal gauges (fuel gauge, oil pressure, speedometer, tachometer, temperature gauge, trim tabs, and volt meter), 12 VDC charger and deluxe tilt steering wheel. However, a spare room is enabled for additional navigation equipment such as a compass, GPS Garmin 740 S, Radar Garmin 18 HD and VHF radio. The windshield is curved and designed in 3D.
To port of the helm, a stretch out single lounge is situated. It has a double purpose since it can serve as passenger seating. Underneath the seating, which contains AquaflexTM Vinyl, throughout the cockpit, ample storage space can be found. One can access the bow via large steps and a handrail is positioned to increase safety. The visible skylight innovation can be seen on the bow. The skylight is integrated by implementing leading-edge technology. A Windlass and anchoring system is also an option for the bow.
Access to the below decks of the Four Winns V275 is manageable via the bi-fold entry door, made out of fiberglass liner. Moving completely forward, a beautiful V-berth takes up space. The wonderful stitches are done just like on the aforementioned dashboard. This berth can be transformed into a large berth with a curtain to get more privacy. The real wood bamboo flooring is an option as well. The natural light bathes the cabin from two large deck skylights and huge curved hull side windows making the area even bigger. Dark cherry gloss or light maple cabinetry finish is also given as an option to the clients. One can notice that the Four Winns really gives plenty of options to pick from, making sure the layout and details suit the client’s needs.
The below deck galley of the Four Winns V275 is basically a breakfast center. The galley encompasses cabinetry, countertop with sink and cutting board. The optional equipment includes a microwave, a fridge, and a stove. The head is really convenient and has lots of headroom which is really important below deck of any boat. Sump pump shower and a vanity mirror greet the guests when entering the head. The cabin has a queen size mattress. With a ventilation system and a portlight, one does not feel claustrophobic. On the contrary, the feeling is quite pleasant and comfortable. Plenty of standard equipment falls into the Four Winns V275 price. On the other hand, one has an abundance of optional equipment which is really a positive trait since the client can opt for the equipment to meet his requirements.
