What do you do if Dad wants to wakeboard, Mom wants to ski, and the kids want to surf? Check out the versatility of Crownline’s new E-235 Surf! It’s the perfect do-it-all, family pleasing water sports boat. This crossover model features a center ballast system, with two additional bags at port and starboard for a whopping 1500 pounds of ballast, promising a sweet surf wave for all skill levels, from beginners to experienced riders. Volvo’s Forward Drive places the prop in front of the sterndrive’s lower unit, eliminating the safety concerns of surfing behind an exposed propeller. The duo prop, combined with Crownline’s patented F.A.S.T. Tab® design, promises quick planning and turn-on-a dime maneuverability for an overall amazing and exhilarating ride. The Wake Worx surf tabs allow you to “dial-in” the perfect wave and the Zero Off GPS speed control system allows riders and skiers to select a cruise speed based upon their own personal style, further enhancing the experience. Wakeboarders (and music lovers) will appreciate the standard Samson Blade deluxe aluminum tube tower with etched side panels, suntop and fold-down stop. Two Samson Talon combination wake / surf board racks are standard as well. And, with the four amplified tower speakers and LED light rings on the cans, the tower not only looks and sounds awesome, it will also help riders to achieve more air and hang time!
The E-235 Surf boat may have been designed to please water sports enthusiasts, but this impressive boat is also loaded up with amenities, with an impressive list of standard features that are normally optional equipment on our competitor’s comparable models.
Crownline’s attention to detail includes a full-length, oversized extended swim platform that wraps around the entire back of the boat, and comes with a soft-touch, non-slip platform mat, making boarding, exiting, and gearing up for a ride safe for all ages. The handheld transom shower is perfect for rinsing off after a swim, while the aft electric lounge seating is perfect for relaxing in a quiet cove after a long day enjoying those watersports. It adjusts positions with a touch of your finger, so you can position yourself comfortably whether you are seated upright to keep an eye on the kids playing in the water, lying flat for sunbathing, or every position in-between.
The spacious J-shaped cockpit interior was designed for comfort and convenience, featuring deluxe, shock absorbing driver and passenger bucket seats (with convenient flip-up bolsters) that swivel to face aft, creating a conversation-friendly cockpit that’s perfect for entertaining. Over-sized, “hot tub” style bow lounge seats are designed with flip-up arm rests and inviting cushiony support. Stainless-steel cup holders and grab handles are within easy reach, no matter where you are sitting in the boat.
The Crownline team strategically designed the E-235 Surf with a deep sheer line, allowing room for a more spacious cockpit head compartment. Standard equipment includes custom cabinetry with a sink and beautiful solid surface countertop, a handheld shower, opening portlight and porta potti. And it’s plenty large enough for use as a changing room as well. Compare it to the competition’s smaller, inconvenient (or impossible) to use heads and you will appreciate it even more.
The deep freeboard and well-thought-out design provides massive amounts of storage throughout the boat, all finished with an impact resistant, non-marring coating. There’s plenty of room for everyone’s gear.
One of the most important and essential feature when choosing a boat is an impressive sound system. The Crownline E-235 Surf delivers best-in-class sound quality with a standard performance amplified Kicker marine stereo system. It’s paired with EIGHT splash-proof Wet Sounds speakers (standard), with two located at the Social Swim™ transom. So, crank it up and immerse yourself in the music.
Highlights of additional standard features not already mentioned include LED cockpit lighting for enhanced evening boating experiences, battery charger, one-piece boat covers with Hang-Tyte canvas (available in a choice of five colors), snap-in cockpit mat, docking lights, dual battery switch, premium Surf Edition gelcoat pattern with side hull accent and surf logo, Pure Platinum interior, a 7” Raymarine touchscreen MFD with sonar, Gateway cable and engine information, stainless-steel four-step ladder, stainless steel windshield header and lock, a side-mount portable table ….and so much more!
The Crownline E-235 Surf is definitely loaded up with customer-driven standard features, but you can still customize your boat specifically to meet your personal needs and preferences. Choose from a variety of gelcoat patterns and color options, beautifully designed interior selections, engine applications and more.
The nationally advertised price of $86,995 (with a 280 HP Volvo FWD Surf Drive) even includes a deluxe forward drive custom color-matched trailer with a swing tongue, LED lights, Tread Brite fender inlays, aluminum rims, Fulton jack and winch, and brakes on both axles!
