Stingray Powerboats
Gimme Shelter

Boating World - June 2002

Break out of your old daytime cruising routine with one of these new
pocket cruisers — they'll get you through a night on the water.

Having the option to stay aboard a boat overnight expands your boating horizons considerably. If you can't reach your final destination before nightfall, who cares? Just drop anchor or pull into a marina, rent a slip for the night, get some sleep and resume the cruise the next day. Fact is, many people stay aboard their boat at the local marina without going anywhere, just for the fun and relaxation of sleeping onboard. A cabin also provides a relatively secure place to stow gear and serves as a refuge in bad weather. Whatever the reason, if you are in the market for a closed-deck boat that can serve as your floating motel and restaurant, the following group of boats will help you narrow down the selection. From simple to luxurious and at a price to fit your budget, this sampling of new cuddies demonstrates the plethora of varieties and styles available.
