Glastron rolls out GT 205

Rec Boat Holdings announced the next new model in Glastron's redesigned GT series of boats, which started with the launch of the GT 160 at its dealer meeting last summer.

On the heels of the recently introduced GT 200 outboard-powered platform, the new GT 205 offers sterndrive models that are available in standard, sport and ski & fish versions.

The GT 205 platform is a new design from bow to stern, aligned with the entire GT family of boats, the company said. Features and upgrades are available with each version, delivering the configuration to suit consumer needs and desires.

“The Glastron lineup is taking on a whole new look, and consumer reaction is outstanding,” Rec Boat Holdings group president Roch Lambert said in a statement. “The much-anticipated sterndrive models in this size category will deliver an exciting 20-foot runabout loaded with unique design features. We continue to provide our dealers with a truly different product in terms of design, performance and overall experience for their consumers, and retail reaction is validating our strategy.”

Along with plenty of living area, the GT 205 has the storage to accommodate everything from water toys to sunscreen. The transom entry with retractable lounge provides easy boarding from the water or the dock without stepping onto any seating area.

Engine options are available in V6 and V8 power.
