Four Winns SL242

HR — 21300 Makarska, Vukovarska 27

Four Winns unveiled the SL242 series offering in winter of 2008. And now, with a handful of upgrades for 2009, the model is poised for outstanding success with a capacity to thrill a variety of boaters.

Taking subtle styling cues from offshore saltwater vessels, the 24’5” SL242 inspires a “one-ness” with the water, while providing generous interior space for creature comforts. With its signature Four Winns Stable-Vee Split Chine hull, a smooth ride is ensured along with an uncommonly wide cockpit. With the Split Chine design, a single chine aft splits into two chines as it progresses forward. The outer chine remains far outward while the inner chine curves sharply inward creating a finer entry. The result is the SL242 has superior lateral stability, gets up on plane quickly with minimal bow rise, and unbelievable cornering. The overall silhouette is dramatic, with an attractive profile, a bow scuff plate and stainless steel pull-up cleats standard.

The bow is elongated, providing a surprisingly large skid-resistant platform for boarding, lounging, or securing the anchor. For a rich, nautical feel, teak trim is an option for the bow, swim platform, and other areas throughout the boat. Flexiteek is another flooring option that gives the look of teak, with extra slip-resistance. An anchor locker with hidden telescoping ladder provides the perfect space for anchor storage when not in use.

Once aboard, the bow also boasts a spacious U-shaped seating area with leaning backrests for optimal comfort and room to stretch your legs. Cockpit seating includes a super-wide Comfort-RidePlus helm seat with flip-up bolster, and stainless steel assist rails. Both bucket seats have a forward/aft feature that enables them to be repositioned so the seat becomes part of the U-wrap lounge. The stern seating is wide and accommodating, with a removable cushion to create a side walk-thru to the swim platform.

At the transom, a large pull-out seat extends over a portion of the swim platform to create an expansive sun pad that bridges the platform and cockpit. The integrated swim platform lies low, close to the water for amazing unity with the water and is available standard with a slip-resistant mat or optional Flexiteek or genuine teak flooring. For convenience, a power trim switch along with plenty of beverage holders are built in to the transom. The Four Winns signature angled, hidden deep-reach ladder makes access to the water very easy and comfortable. Plus, an aft shower makes rinsing sand and debris a snap. For great sound, transom speakers are available as part of an optional stereo upgrade.

A new breed of boat calls for a captain who appreciates a combination of fabulous attributes. At the helm, the elegant control panel is the backdrop for stainless steel push button and toggle controls, genuine wood tilt steering wheel, and a compass. The electronic gauges by Medallion include a tachometer with hour meter, fuel gauge, oil pressure, speedometer, temperature, trim, and volt meter. A depth sounder with shallow water alarm is a valuable standard feature that is enhanced by a water and air temperature gauge. A stainless steel windshield header is standard, and the windshield is a walk-thru with magnetic hold.

The dash is adorned with the boater’s choice of mahogany or blond wood trim, and rich handfitted, top-stitched upholstery in choice of three attractive shades: Pewter, Bluewater or Driftwood Tan. Interior surfaces are also customized with a gel coat available in Jet Black, Silver or Driftwood Tan. There is dedicated space at the helm for an optional GPS. Entertainment buffs will appreciate the iPod/MP3 port and 12 VDC receptacle housed within a storage compartment for small electronics.

The standard Sony stereo system with subwoofers can be upgraded as an option to include a Kicker amplifier, 10” subwoofer, and transom speakers with switch.

Topping the list of the SL242’s convenient amenities is a portable head enclosed in a private compartment with an expandable hatch overhead, skylight, and lighting. Lined with fiberglass, the head enclosure features an attractive woodgrain cabinet for storage.

Four Winns engineers went above and beyond on the SL242’s storage. Not only is there plentiful storage, it is innovatively placed for efficient space usage. The SL242 offers an in-floor compartment large enough for skis with the added ease of a hinged lid with gas-assist lift.

Among the clever new additions to the SL242 is a removable trash receptacle accessed via a “lid within the lid” area of the ski locker. The bow houses storage behind the starboard backrest and beneath seats. The cockpit also conceals generous storage under the U-shaped seating, and a large cooler nestles conveniently below one of the seats, alongside an ingenious flexible, mesh-sided bag for damp gear storage. As an option, a sink and faucet can be added on the starboard side.

A heater is another option to warm the cockpit on cool evenings. For easy access at service time, the engine hatch has gas-assisted lifts.

The SL242 features a canvas bimini top fabricated from top-quality, high performance Sunbrella fabric and stainless steel hardware. And, a newly designed top frame mounting pin makes managing the bimini top even easier. As an option, a hinging stainless steel arch can be selected, ideal for water sports and traveling in low clearance areas. In addition, a hard top is available. Four Winns offers an optional flag pole and holder mounted at the stern with sturdy stainless steel hardware.

The hull’s premium gel coat finish is available in six colors, plus all-white. Two new colors for 2009 are the subtle and stylish Pastel Blue and Pastel Yellow. The standard classic color band gel scheme features an accent stripe at the waterline running just below the wide gel band and continues along the edge of the swim platform. A solid hull option is also available, featuring solid gel color all the way to the water. And for a more personalized look, the Art

Series features original artwork created just for the SL Series. The Art Series is offered in the “Air” edition and the “Sunset” edition, with a coordinating gel accent stripe at the waterline.

To serve the water sports segment, Four Winns offers an Ultimate Arch package on the SL242 that includes a stainless steel arch with ski tow and custom bimini top, board racks, tower lights, and four extra stereo speakers. Plus, the Four Winns Ultimate stereo upgrade includes Sony speakers, a second amplifier, and a transom speaker switch.

Customers can select from many engine choices: Volvo Penta choices range from 5.7 Gi/DP 300 hp to 8.1 Gi/DP 375 hp; or MerCruiser power from 350 MPI/Bravo III 300 hp to 496 MG/Bravo III DTS 375 hp. And new for 2009, Four Winns is offering catalyst engines designed to significantly reduce emissions in accordance with EPA recommendations.
