If you love the 235LR sport deck, but prefer a boat that is shorter, the 215LR is an ideal choice. The Stingray designers did a great job conserving space in non-critical areas, essentially making it a shorter version of its big brother. Not to worry though, it is so similar that it does not suffer from an inferiority complex. Like our other sport deck models, the 215LR is a wide-body boat that offers more cockpit space than traditional boats of the same length. Its wider stance allows for easy-entry bow and stern companionway entrances. The bow entry begins with a slide-out boarding ladder, which allows room for an accessible anchor locker and fender storage compartment. These items tuck neatly away below a non-skid lid. Also in the bow is a large cooler with overboard drain; its lid, also non-skid, doubles as a step when closed.
