Spacious, seaworthy and versatile, bowriders like the Four Winns HD 240 combine the nimble handling of sport boats with legitimate big-water capability. 

“The HD 240 comes with a factory trailer, making it easy to explore more distant launches,” notes Andy Lindsay, Four Winns’ VP of sales. “The Stable-Vee hull will keep her on plane at low speeds and deflect oncoming spray in choppy conditions.”

Available in both outboard and sterndrive configurations, the HD 240 makes a statement as soon as you step aboard. Its deep swim platform, aft-facing transom seat and Deep Reach boarding ladder all confirm this boat is made for enjoying summer. 

A transom pass-through leads to the cockpit, where a spacious L-shaped portside lounge and a facing starboard seat invite you to stretch out and get comfy. There’s a mountain of storage space beneath the seat cushions, including a cooler with an overboard drain. A removable pedestal-mount table turns the cockpit into a great lunch spot, or can be positioned in the bow or on the swim platform if desired. Deep cockpit freeboard provides a sense of security when underway, and contributes to the HD 240’s dry ride. 

Available reed mat snap-in flooring is a nice, fast-drying switch from carpet and feels great underfoot. Look carefully and you’ll notice the big in-floor ski locker complete with a drain that accommodates bulky gear.

Both the passenger and helm seats swivel to provide added cockpit seating, and both feature a flip-up bolster. The passenger console conceals a spacious head compartment with a standard porta-potti that can be upgraded to an electric toilet. The helm console is elegantly designed with Four Winns custom gauges, a depth sounder with a shallow water alarm, and a deluxe tilt steering wheel. 

The beamy bow offers plenty of additional seating with storage space beneath. Installing an optional filler cushion converts this space into an inviting sunpad. The bow platform includes its own boarding ladder for convenience, housed in a neat compartment that also accommodates the anchor locker.
