With three adults and 1/4 a tank of fuel on board, we set off across the lake for a midwinter speed test. During a couple of runs at wide-open throttle (which was 5,200 rpm), we averaged a top speed of 49.1 mph. Cruising speed was around 32 mph, where we were running at 3,500 rpm.
A 260 hp 5.0L MPI Bravo III MerCruiser stern drive, effiencey and very well maintained.
The engine, inboard/outboard is a fuel-injected systems that come with a SmartCraft system monitor and a stainless steel prop. Standard instrumentation includes a tachometer, a speedometer, a voltmeter, and water temperature, oil and fuel gauges. The SmartCraft system monitor adds a depth finder, and keeps track of engine hours, fuel flow/range and fuel usage.
A head, sink, Refriderator grill, kitchenete, 2 bed areas, one used as stowage area, they're huge.
An extended swim platform further adds to the 240 BR's watersports friendliness. If your family is into skiing, wakeboarding or riding on towables, the 240 provides plenty of power, as well as controlled handling to ensure that everyone stays safe.
Fishing pole S.S. holders added for fishing for 6 poles and Ice chest include for holding the catch.
Some boats feel shaky at top-end speeds, but our Sea Ray 240 felt just as comfortable at full speed as it did at cruising speed. We faced friendly 12-knot winds that day on the water, and the 240 took the chop with no problems. Turns were tight and the ride was very dry and smooth. What a ride :-).
