This 2007 Four Winns 278 Vista was factory upgraded with the Volvo Penta Gi 8.1L 375HP engine and you can certainly feel the extra power getting out of the hole and up on the plane with an easy cruise at 25 knots and 35 plus knots at wide open throttle (WOT). To compliment the engine it has been matched with the Volvo Penta Aquamatic duo-prop sterndrive. To reduce maintenance costs and issues a Neutra-Salt flushing system has also been fitted.

With a generous stern platform everyone can easy jump on board, an extended bimini above providing great shade. Set up with a stainless steel stern rail, bait board, rod holders and a 2.4m RIB tender with electric outboard, it's geared for serious fun!

In the cockpit, it’s a real social set up with ample seating in a u-shape and table in the middle. To port there is a sink with fresh water and lots of storage. Moving forward the helm is raised giving great visibility for the skipper and co-pilot as there is seating for two. Everything is well placed on the helm and the new Garmin touchscreen chartplotter/fishfinder is a real treat.

Moving down into the cabin there is plenty of room, on the port side is a galley with microwave, sink, fresh water, a cooktop and fridge/freezer and opposite is a bathroom with toilet, sink and a hot/cold fresh water shower. Moving forward is a multi-purpose area that doubles as large dining table and converts into a double berth. To aft is another double berth that feels very spacious.

What more is there to say than jump aboard and enjoy this beautiful 2007 Four Winns 278 Vista!
