Bowriders are designed for lakes and inland waterways, and are the most popular boats in the runabout/sportboat category, thanks to the spacious seating in their open bow (front) area. Whether boaters want to ski, swim, fish or just dangle their toes in the water when at anchor, bowriders are a popular boat for many recreational water sports. Sterndrive power is the norm, but outboard engines are becoming increasingly popular for power.
