This 26’ Four Winns Vista 248 is a great cruiser for the vacation/weekend boating and/or live-aboard lifestyle. With a comfortable V-berth at the bow and an additional, cozy second berth below the cockpit, three to four people can easily sleep overnight. Rich, finished cherry wood veneer embellishes the entire cabin. This cruiser’s galley includes several luxury features standard to this Four Winns model (solid surface galley countertop, large sink, electric glass top burner, microwave, dual voltage refrigerator), giving it full, big-boat conveniences, yet it’s still compact enough to tow (dual-axle trailer is included). An abundant cockpit and a cabin equipped for the live-aboard lifestyle make this craft the easy choice for occasional or long-term enjoyment. It’s small enough for the lake and big enough for the salt!
The cockpit’s helm, aft, and stern nicely flow into one another, providing a comfortable, open feel.
The helm’s console runs two-thirds across the starboard, while the remaining length is dedicated to the entryway descending to the cabin and impressive micro-galley below. A fiberglass stairway at the console allows easy ascent to the topside bow via the walk-through windshield. The full, comfortable helm’s captain’s/passenger seats face a full set of gauges, paired with an additional Lowrance GPS/Plotter.
The cockpit’s aft section boasts a U-shaped settee sitting against the back of the captain's seat, then continuing down the starboard and along the stern. A dining table and lots of built-in cup holders provide plenty of opportunities to entertain your guests.
As for guests and boaters anxious to enjoy warm-weather activities, the stern’s swim platform and large swim step complete this cruiser’s bonuses, luxuries for which Four Winns name is long-reputed.
This is a video of an identical boat that is on YouTube. Three noted differences are our boat is gasoline (video is diesel), our galley cooktop is electric/glass, and our GPS is a Lowrance and mounted to the left of the steering wheel. Nonetheless, the video does an excellent job showing the creature comforts and well-thought-out details of the boat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNlt3jgLJtg.
