Triton Aluminum’s New Spirit 200 Deckboat

Posted: 8/26/2004

Up ‘till now, most deckboat buyers have sought out models on the basis of roominess and comfort – both desirable attributes. However, often lost in the process of choosing a new deckboat is a basic principle of recreational boating … it’s fun to go fast! That simple premise is the driving force behind the development of Triton’s new Spirit 200 aluminum deckboat. By adding the “speed component” to deckboating, Triton has essentially created a new category of pleasurecraft – the Performance Deckboat.

The defining feature that separates the new Spirit 200 from other deckboats is its pad hull design. Rather than a displacement hull which creates significant water drag, the Spirit 200 features an all-welded planing hull which allows the boat to get up on top of the water. It’s a design that’s fast, fuel efficient and more stable than traditional deckboats. The pad hull also means that you can achieve excellent performance with lower horsepower (lower cost) engines. Of course, if you power up to the maximum 150 HP rating, this new 20 footer may offer the fastest, most exciting route to fun on the water that you’ve ever experienced.

But don’t think for a moment that by offering teary-eyed performance Triton may have skimped in the luxury department – quite the contrary. This deckboat is truly “decked-out”, every inch of its broad 8 foot-plus beam has been utilized. Enjoy deep-cushioned lounge seating with facing bench seats forward and L-shaped dinette seating – with removable table – aft. There’s plenty of in-deck storage, a fold-away Bimini top, and even a locker for Wake-Boards and related gear. A boarding ladder at the transom provides fast, easy in/out for all watersports activities.

The console design underscores the performance capabilities of the Spirit 200 with its automotive-style instrumentation and sweptback windshield. And the wraparound helm chair provides the support and comfort you would expect from the driver’s seat in a professional race car.
