Stingray 240LS
Lakeland Boating - October 1999

STANDING SLACK-JAWED - Don't be surprised if people gawk at
this open-bow beauty. It's a textbook example of conspicuous enjoyment.

Comfort is a vitally important attribute of any boat, but the ability to draw gawking stares as everyone on shore watches your beautiful craft zip by really satisfies a hard-to-reach itch. Why consume conspicuously if you can't be really conspicuous about it? If you see Stingray's 240LS go by, you can't be blamed for your slack-jawed staring; anyone who owns one in all likelihood purchased it because they themselves were dumbfounded by it.

This newest addition to the Stingray open-bow stable is like the scion of a highfalutin show pony and a hard-driving track racer. With the 240LS, you'll get to enjoy the best of both worlds.

The cockpit offers standard backlit instrumentation, a tilt steering wheel, a woodgrain dash, a floor-mounted table and an insulated ice chest. Also included are Stingray's premium seats. These polypropylene-core seats are more durable than their wood-core counterparts. The molded foam inserts are then covered with UV-stable, nearly puncture-proof vinyl. All of this attention to detail is certainly justified; after all, what is as important as a comfortable seat?

The 240LS comes standard with a Sunbrella top, curved safety glass windshield and integrated swim platform. Other standard features include a 500-gallon-per-hour bilge pump and carpeted floor storage. Some of the optional features are Sunbrella aft curtains, bow cover and full canvas set, side curtains, and a walk-through flap.

But it's in the hull where Stingray's legendary attention to quality really pays off in the 240LS. All Stingray hulls are NMMA- and U.S. Coast Guard-certified. Because they have such a passion for staying ahead of their competition, Stingray uses computer modeling and 3-D milling to simulate the hull construction in the planning stages. This exacting process allows Stingray to confidently offer a five-year owner protection plan. This guarantee will appeal to your rational side, though you will definitely feel this vessel's benefits in the seat of your pants.

The 240LS has three MerCruiser power options. With a light load and an SS prop, the 5.0L EFI Alpha tops out a 50 mph. The 5.7L EFI Alpha, which is also available with Bravo III drive, gets up to 53 mph. The top-of-the-line 350 MAG MPI Alpha pushes the 240LS to a top speed of 56 mph.

The speed, lines and grace of the Stingray 240LS make for a truly remarkable vessel. Just be ready to be the focus of attention.
