Project: Four Winns V305

Four Winns presents the V305 project what is a sport cruiser model scheduled to debut in the end of October at the Fort Lauderdale show. The V305 adds another luxury craft to the full line of thirty to 47 feet sport cruiser. This new Four Winns follows family inspired features coming from the the V435 model, with an open cockpit streamlined design, low to the water swim platform, and a newly designed hard top with extended support arms that frame the customized coverage system. Here one simply adds or removes the fitted canvas extension, with a choice of full protection from the elements or an open-aired cockpit atmosphere. The black-framed integrated windshield includes a usual from a US builder walk-through access to the forward deck. This exterior design is the beginning of a visual consistency that will be integrated throughout the Four Winns lineup in future models. Moving through the interior of the new V305, many trademark features to future Four Winns sport cruisers are integrated throughout to assure comfort. The interior layout offers functional use of space; having forward a semi-fixed Vee berth design which by lowering the fold-out backrest enables surface length up to six feet, while to mid ship is a queen size mattress cabin, complete breakfast galley fitted with microwave, sink and refrigerator, and a separate shower head. Entering the outside cockpit is also a first in this size of a full galley relocated from the cabin to the aft cockpit area and features an optional grill as well as an electric cooking surface, refrigerator and sink. A new cockpit table design turns into a full sun lounge by simply lowering the table pedestal and with a simple flip of the seats, the cockpit now becomes a full sun lounge. The helm station is functional and stylish with double bench seating and an easy-to-read dash layout. Power options for the V305 range from twin 220hp up to 270hp petrol Volvo or Mercruiser. For the long navigators and European market Four Winns also offers a twin 220hp Volvo Diesel choice.
