Stingray Model 204LR
"On plane in 3.3 seconds with minimal bowrise, the boat reached 30 mph in 9.9 seconds. Top speed was 44.3 mph, which is 6 to 9 mph faster than comparable boats. It handled very well, whether at top speed or loafing along at 20.5 mph — where Yamaha recorded it getting better than 6 mpg."Boating World
Stingray Model 204LR
Based on the popoular 208LR sterndrive, the outboard powered 204LR includes premium features seldom found in an entry-level bowrider in the 20-foot range, including a best-in-class amount of storage. It boasts floor storage with oversized doors for convenient stowage of water toys, plus a huge compartment under the sunpad that comes complete with stinger-top decking to help keep the cavernous space clean, organized and easy to use. The 204LR also has a fiberglass cockpit floor liner for comfortable traction and easy cleanup, and indirect LED interior lights to set the mood once the sun goes down.
The 204LR also knows how to entertain on par with much bigger, more expensive boats. The highpower marine-grade audio system can accentuate a quiet picnic or punctuate a sand bar party, and the standard stand-up bimini top will give you protection from harsh rays or sudden showers, while the two integrated coolers store a day's worth of snacks and drinks to keep everyone hydrated and fed. The upholstery is premium 36-ounce vinyl for maximum comfort and durability, and there is a generous sunpad aft. Stingray aficionados who are accustomed to a swim platform won't go wanting with the 204LR: The outboard is flanked by two double-tiered swim perches that are ideal for kicking back in the sun and easy boarding after a dip. There's also a stainless boarding ladder fore and aft, and a 15-inch side entryway for convenient boarding from the dock.
At 20 feet, 5 inches (6.2 m) long and with a beam of 99 inches (250 cm), the 204LR is built to hold up to nine people. It comes standard with a 115-hp four-stroke from either Yamaha or Mercury, and a 150-hp four-stroke outboard of either brand is also available as an option.
