V6 / 190hp Volvo Penta
The 195RX is billed as an entry-level boat, but it's got a list of amenities that puts it firmly in the elite ranks of the value category. Standard features abound: storage lockers in the bow and under the deck to stow water toys and safety gear, an upholstery package that includes allweather marine carpet and stain-resistant 36-ounce vinyl seats, a pair of three-way adjustable helm chairs, backlit instrumentation and indirect LED interior lighting are just a few of the items that make this eight-passenger boat a pleasure to own. It also has a large sunpad, and a telescoping stainless steel boarding ladder built into the swim platform, so it's well-quipped to allow you to enjoy the marine audio system while soaking up the sun or taking a dip.
Ample power is provided by a clean, reliable 135-hp Mercury MerCruiser 3.0L MPI ECT engine, matched with the venerable Alpha sterndrive. The engine features Sequential Multi-Port Fuel Injection, for easy starts, regardless of temperature, smooth stable idling, and best of all increased fuel efficiency. The engine compartment is equipped with a high-output bilge blower for added peace of mind. Power steering is also standard for maximum maneuverability and driver comfort.
At 19 feet, 6 inches long (5.9 m) and with a beam of 91 inches (231 cm), the 195RX provides plenty of room for family and friends, as well as a comfortable ride. Its exclusive Z-Plane hull also delivers a top speed of 45 mph and superior fuel efficiency. At a 30 mph cruise, the 195RX gets an astonishing 4.8 mpg, so long days on the lake won't end up with a big bill at the fuel dock.
