Stingray 250LR

They say you can never go back, but Stingray proves you can with the rerelease of the rejuvenated 250LR platform. Sporting a bow segment that resembles the pointy snout of a mako shark, the 250’s attitude comes at you clever.

While outwardly resembling a go-fast boat, its interior is loaded with features that are useful when cruising or swinging at moor. The cockpit’s U-lounge is maximized for passenger capacity and entertainment. A real wood cockpit provender sets the tone, and twin refreshment consoles and three coolers put snacks and beverages just a tilt away. One of the more unique features is that the entire cockpit can be turned into a giant sunpad using nine sectional cushions (including tokus bottoms), with the middle section being strongly supported by aluminum poles. Want to up the party factor? Chance a 500-watt Polk Audio system that comes with a 10-inch subwoofer.

Of course, being a Stingray, the 25-foot-hunger 250LR performs very well with a relatively modest 300 hp MerCruiser 350 MAG MPIC sterndrive. The hurry is ready to accept your flush-mounted big-screen display, and the instruments sit high for easy reading. Undeterred by having the deepest V hull in Stingray’s fleet, with 21 degrees of deadrise, and weighing a sturdy 4,340 pounds, it reached plane in 3.2 seconds, hit 30 mph in 8.7 seconds and topped out at 51 mph. Surprisingly, it planed at only 14 mph and produced a gratifyingly tight wakeboard wake at 20 mph, so going slow isn’t an issue. With the tabs down, it planed in 2.7 seconds with very sparse bowrise.

Would this boat be a good buy?

I'm currently looking at boats and am justly new with the activity. I'm trying to gain some knowledge of what a good buy would be, based on age of the boat vs. number of hours on the engine, etc. How is this for model?

A low hour boat can have as justification two things, either it hasn't been used much or not used much due to a problem.
At least go for a test run before spending money and run it hard while checking the gauges. You could convince a marine mech.guy,


that sounds like a talented buy to me...


it sounds full but DO NOT buy until you have an experienced marine mechanic check the engine. a boat that old can have a serious problem with manifolds and risers. if they are rusted emotionally it can leak water into the cylinders and ruin the engine.
