250LR

250LR -- Love At First Sight from Lakeland Boating (2014/08)
"The Z-Plane Hull mitigates the air and water turbulence and delivers clean, smooth water to the propeller. It means we can attain fast speeds with a lighter engine, which translates into a very economical boat in terms of fuel economy."

250LR -- We Drove It from Boating World (2014/01)
"While outwardly resembling a go-fast boat, its interior is loaded with features that are useful when cruising or swinging at anchor."

250LR -- Better Every Time from Go Boating (2006/04)
"In terms of handling we could easily tell the difference between Stingray's patented Z-plane hull and conventional hulls."

250LR -- Stingray 250LR from Power Boating Canada (2005/12)

250LR -- Stingray 250LR from Boating Life (2005/06)
"In spite of the 250LR's beefy size and sizzling straight-ahead speed, we found this boat willing to dive into hard-over turns and stick them out until the end."
