Four Winns debuts 2014 models

Rec Boat Holdings rolled out the new 2014 Four Winns model-year lineup this week to more than 30 international dealers that represent 22 countries and will introduce the new line to its North American dealer network at a leadership conference scheduled for Aug. 4-6.

The latest addition to the Four Winns brand is the new Horizon 290 bowrider. The 29-foot luxury sportboat features an oversized bow area and chaise lounge-style seating with adjustable headrests and integrated arm rests.

The boat also features a motorized captain's seat, an optional galley and L-shaped seating. The Horizon 290 offers a Four Winns one-touch automatic sun lounge, along with a low-profile swim platform and the company’s Stable Vee hull design. Power options for the Horizon 290 are available in single-engine and twin-engine configurations.

"The new Four Winns lineup offers everything the consumer looks for in a quality boat," Rec Boat Holdings president Roch Lambert said in a statement. “We are excited to grow our Horizon line as well as add new color choices, additional amenities and a broad lineup of boats from which our distribution network can continue to grow their businesses.”
