Four Winns remains one of the iconic brands in American boat building, combining a level of quality, performance and innovation that has earned it a legion of satisfied customers. Today’s Four Winns lineup is expansive, from the company’s Horizon and Signature series bowriders, to the SL and Funship sportdecks, all the way to the Sundowner cuddies and Vista Series express cruisers. Each offers a level of premium features and attention to detail that make Four Winns stand apart from the pack. Four Winns was recently a part of the Rec Boat Group, and today, is under the ownership of Beneteau, one of the world's largest boat-builders.
The 180 Horizon is the most compact of the Four Winns line, but Four Winns knows how to make a smallish boat look and feel big. Thanks to the Stable-Vee hull design, even novice boaters will feel at home behind the helm of the 180 Horizon. This patented running surface gives the 180 Horizon its genteel handling characteristics: It gets up on plane quickly and carves a turn gracefully. Its a difference that is noticable even when the boat is at rest. The instrument panel of the 180 Horizon is trimmed with a titanium-look surround; it adds to the high-tech look of the stainless steel bezel and blue pointers of the gauges. Tilt steering is a standard feature.
Top-grade components are abundant aboard the 180 Horizon. A plush, marine-grade carpeting snaps into position atop the full fiberglass liner. The cockpit interior features pads and seats made with AquaFlex, a special grade of vinyl that resists tearing and stains. The premium gel coat finish is available in six colors, plus all-white. Standard graphic is a matching stripe below the gel line; optional sport graphics are also available. Even the Four Winns ladder is a cut above; the step pads are wide so feet dont feel the rungs.
Four Winns is offering the 180 in two floor plans. The standard seating includes port and starboard buckets with hi-lo positioning jump seats at the stern; the cushions of these removable seats can be flipped to provide a step surface. Available SunSport seating has an aft sun deck and full-width bench seat with storage beneath. Four Winns has engineered plenty of storage into the 180 Horizon. Theres storage beneath the bow seats and in the sidewalls of the cockpit, plus a large, in-floor locker with a hinged lid to store wakeboards and other watersports gear.
Customers can choose from the MerCruiser 3.0L 135 hp Alpha Drive from MerCruiser or the 3.0GL 135 hp SX drive from Volvo Penta.
A Four Winns SureLoad trailer is a key part of what makes this package such a good one. Its low-profile, bunk design keeps the boats center of gravity low, for greater stability while towing. Because it has been custom-designed to fit the 180 Horizon running surface, launching and loading is quick and easy. The color-matched trailer also has disc brakes and a space-saving swing-away tongue.
