A bow rider boat is a boat with an open bow, usually with seating. Newer models will often have a walk-through windscreen offering direct access to the bow seating from the cockpit. They can be inboard or outboard powered. Extras such as wakeboard towers can be added for that extra sporty twist!
Day boat, sports boat, open boat, runabout.
They are fantastic boat for a day out, larger bow riders also can offer toilet facilities (usually appreciated by the girls & little ones!).
For watersports, often the port side seat offers a rotating seat or moving back rest to offer a “spotter” while towing water toys or wakeboarders etc.
