Boating Magazine Comments

“Our test model featured a 350HP Mercury Verado that pushed the boat onto plane in just 3.3 seconds enroute to reaching 30 mph in just 7.4 seconds.  With full fuel and a crew of three, we reached a top speed of 52.5mph at 6,000 rpm.”

“One factor to note about Crownline E285XS is that alot of equiptment found as options on other boats, from the pump-out head, to the grill and refrigerator, to the electric folding arch, come standard.”
