Experience the luxury of the Azure AZ298, a new 29-footer that offers a roomy and luxuriously appointed cockpit combined with a very sleek and strong hull design. It features the patented SureTrac 22-degree deadrise hull, which happens to be the deepest V hull on the market. This makes for great handling in rough water.

This boat has a muscular, solid and unified look as well. It's a great package for a comfortable day out on the water, and you can bring along 15 passengers to enjoy the day. There is plenty of comfortable seating including two body-contoured, forward-facing chaise lounges as well as wraparound deep bow seating with sculpted backrests. You'll enjoy the easy access with the step-through windshield. It also has a starboard side chaise with a back that lifts, offering more storage.

The helm seat incorporates the Tri-Tech triple-suspension system. This has carbon fiber leaf springs, multi-density foam and flexible fabric, which all work together to provide a smooth ride for the captain. This stylish boat is equipped to keep everyone happy for an extended day out with a JBL Premium Sound System Satellite radio with six speakers and MP3 port as well as integrated 48-quart cooler and plenty of storage.

The AZ298 also has a self-bailing cockpit with DripDry ski locker, bow boarding ladder featuring beach access step, fiberglass head with sink and pressurized, freshwater shower. It was designed with the transom pushed rearward to add more space. You'll also find a spacious sun pad, accessible when folding over the back of the chaise. Your crew will enjoy the extended swim platform as well.

This boat can be equipped with up to 425hp and also comes with bimini top and boot and trailering cover. The MSRP price for an Azure 298 with a Volvo 5.7 GXI (320 hp) is $66,145. To find out more about this model, log on to www.azureboats.com, or call 574-264-6336.
