Monterey's 194 FS is a deep and beamy bowrider measuring 19 feet, 7 inches in length - and 21 feet, 8 inches with the optional swim platform). At this size, it provides ample seating for adults in the bow area, as well as a spacious main cockpit with helm and companion seats that swivel to face aft, making the boat like a floating dock anywhere you want to stop and drop anchor.
At the stern is a drained cooler, tow eye and full-width sun pad over the engine, which lifts up to deliver engine inspection access. For major work, the bench seat can be removed. The starboard side of the sun pad is also removable, making a full transom walk-through, which is a very handy feature for older people or during tow sport duties.
Monterey has finished the dash in gunmetal grey to reduce reflections. The well-located tilt steering wheel and perfectly positioned throttle are great, and the steering effort and throttle action have terrific response.
This boat is equipped with the Volvo 4.3 GXI engine. This V8 is very smooth, and delivers impressive power and top speed.
Monterey includes a full fiberglass inner liner with a cavernous ski locker in the floor of the 194 FS which makes maintenance a breeze.
