WHITE BLUFF, Tenn. — New for 2006, Ebbtide's 180 Bow Rider is a compact performer that can handle up to eight passengers. According to a press release from the company, the builder created exceptional space in the new model by expanding its deck, which provides more legroom for passengers seated in the bow area.

"Our 180 Bow Rider is one of our most popular boats due to its size and unbeatable performance," said Tommy Trabue, Ebbtide's president, in the release. "We decided to update the 180 by widening the deck and setting the bow seats farther back, which provides a more open center, giving our customers even more room."

Ebbtide dressed the 18'4?-long runabout with new hull graphics and a new interior layout, providing more colorful and luxurious interior upholstery. The extended deck adds new smooth lines to the offering.

Standard equipment includes a driver's seat flip-up bolster. Other improvements include an easy access battery on/off switch and mid ship cleats for easy tie-up.

The 180 Bow Rider features a roomy sport interior with comfortable driver and passenger bucket seats, rear bench seat, and a U-shaped, wraparound bow seat. Other highlights include in-floor ski storage, AM/FM stereo with CD player, deluxe tilt steering and a swim platform with ski tow rope storage. The 180 also comes standard with stainless- steel bow and stern eyes, cleats, ski tow eye and thru-hull fittings.

Starting at $22,148, this 2,300-pound sport boat is available with MerCruiser or Volvo engines, either with the economical 135hp 4-cylinder or the quick and agile 190hp V6 models. It has a 20-gallon fuel capacity and a wide 7'6? beam. Options include a digital depth-finder, hour meter in the engine compartment and the popular Super Sport package.
