Functional Description:

Bowrider boats, also known as deck boats, have open bows for increased seating and sunning.  The bowrider boat (deck boat) typically has seating on each side of the open bow area.  There also is seating in the main cockpit area of the boat for the driver and passengers.  Bowrider boats can have inboard or outboard propulsion.  Bowriders are used for water skiing, wakeboarding, tube towing, parasailing and cruising.


Bowrider boats are manufactured from various building materials.  Fibreglass with a gel coat finish is the most common.  Other composite building materials for bowrider boats are kevlar, dynel, carbon fiber and epoxyBowrider boats can also be manufactured from aluminium (aluminum).


Sport boats and runabouts are other terms for motor boats used for day cruising or water sports such as water skiing or wakeboarding.
