New Model: Mustang 2850 Sport Cruiser

Mustang Marine embark on 2010 with great panache by officially launching their new 2850 Sports Cruiser. A much expected model the 2850 Sports Cruiser is based on the popular 2800 Sports Cruiser, and captures a review of the Australian boat builder entry level sport cruiser market offer. The 2850 will make its way around Australia and New Zealand in the coming weeks. Mustang says the 2850 Sport Cruiser takes all that was good in the 2800 and adds a range of the latest innovations, with extra living and entertaining space. The 2850 Sport Cruiser now has more beam to provide extra room in the cockpit area, and below decks. The galley has been moved from below deck to the cockpit deck, providing more comfort, access when entertaining with your family and friends. Down below is a full standing head room even in the separate shower toilet. As seen on other Mustang models, even on its entry level model the Aussie builder integrates latest technology features as the touch screen electrical control panel, Finscan fingerprint starting technology, Smart Craft gauges, electric engine room access, and latest entertainment systems. Steps leading to the foredeck, boarding ladder to stern will ensure safe easy access whilst on the boat in and out of the water. For anyone considering getting into boating, the 2850 Sports Cruiser should be well inspected as it offers a lot although to make it work in Europe I do suggest Mustang to put a diesel engine option, as well as bigger fuel tanks. A more sportier version of the 2850 named Super Sports is also on the works.
