Closed Bow Runabouts

These smooth, sporty boats are not as popular as they once were because of the popularity of bowriders and the extra seating they provide. However, they are fast and ideal for smaller crews who enjoy the sleeker, sportier look. And they can still get you to the fish. Instead of seating in the bow (forward area) the closed deck is used for storage.
