There are a lot of different types of boats out there, and no one type meets all needs for all people. At Crownline, we strive to create a large variety of options to appeal to boaters’ wants and needs.

If you’re new to boating, it can be hard to know where to begin. While any of our dealers would be more than happy to give you a guided tour, here are three fundamental types of boats that we offer


#1 BowriderCrownline 18SS
Bowriders are a classic Crownline boat. Beautiful, agile and comfortable, they strike the perfect balance for many boaters. The name isn’t accidental; it connotes the large amount of leisure space at the bow of the boat.  The Crownline 18 SS is a great example of this classic boating style.


#2 Cuddy Cabin
The Cuddy Cabin is similar to the bowrider in size and shape, but swaps bow seating area for cabin space. For many, it’s the sweet spot between maximizing comfCrownline 266scort amenities while maintaining agile maneuverability. Translation? A longer, even more enjoyable day on the water. And, with the added protection from the elements, you might just extend your boating season a little bit longer!  See the Crownline 266 SC for a perfect example of a Cuddy Cabin in action.



#3 Cabin Cruiser
Cruisers are all about accessible luxury. These longer, deeper boats are jam-packed with amenities for not only a day on the water, but a night or two as well. Crownline cruisers come Crownline 294CRwith everything you can imagine, from sleeping quarters to refrigerator, microwave, electric stove, and more. Even better, all the pleasures of water sports remain accessible.  Check out the Crownline 294 CR to see what it is all about!


#4 Outboard

Crownline E24XSIf you’ve been shopping for bowriders recently, you probably noticed a lot more are being offered with outboards these days. With this type of boat, stern-drives have always ruled the roost. Yet we’ve seen new model introductions from heavy-hitters like Crownline.  Not just for fishing boats anymore…. Today’s outboards are shockingly reliable, and more importantly, eliminate the need for a lot of mechanical pieces and parts that are necessary with a stern-drive. Getting power to the prop is much simpler.  Crownline offers 6 Outboards this year (19XS, E21XS, E23XS, E24XS, E26XS, E29XS) and they really are spectacular and luxurious.


There’s no one-size-fits-all boat type out there. Visit your local dealer to learn the ins and outs of each category as you find the one that works best for you.
