Outboard motors are all the rage these days. Snappier than yesteryear’s models, they now make a great complement to sterndrive bowriders for those who prefer them.

The E4 XS is no exception. A full 24’3” in length, it’s modeled after the popular E4 sterndrive. That translates into a lot of room for passengers—13 capacity, to be exact—in the cockpit, bow and aft seating areas.Crownline E4 XS

The popular J-shape cockpit seating forms the heart of the boat, and benefits from easy access to the full-feature head compartment. The bow seating represents some of the best in the industry. As in Crownline’s other bowriders, oversized seats accommodate the tallest and lankiest of passengers. Optional flip-up armrests and stainless steel grab handles and cupholders remain popular bow features, while accessible under-seat storage is never out of reach.

The E4 XS is more than ready for a day of water sports. Tons of conveniently located storage compartments—including in-floor lockable storage—house everything from water gear to wet rope. Check out the new undermount storage drawer, a very convenient place to stow the optional portable table when it’s not in use. Additional features that make the Eclipse model great—F.A.S.T. Tab hull design, the sleek style line contour, and so much more! You’re definitely looking at one the best outboard bowriders on the market.
