Pros: Great performance, great looks, good storage, solid construction, no wood stringers.
Cons: Small center ski locker with awkward lid, Mercruiser clunks into gear.

Pros: Good access to engine area and good leg room for the driver
Cons: The boat disassembles itself due to hull flexing in anything more than a small chop.

Pros: Value, performance, hull-design, reputation
Cons: Fit and finish
Summary: The SX195 is by far the best package you can get for the money. I opted for the 5.0L Volvo Penta setup, and am extremely pleased with the power and ability of this boat. When shopping, I looked at all kinds of boats, and this one had the most bang for ... read more

Pros: Great storage space, great handling, well designed basic boat.
Cons: Hard to use ski locker & middle bench seat storage.
Summary: I bought this boat (2003) because of the price and quality reputation Glastron maintains (Purchased at Crystal Pierze Marine). I got a great deal on the 220HP V8 and recommend it over the lesser HP options. The boat handles great and is very roomy for i ... read more
