Stingray's 250 CR is a handsome boat that incorporates the design features that you would normally find in larger express cruisers, such as an oversize swim platform, outside transom storage compartment for lines and fenders, easy access to the foredeck via a walk-through windshield and convenient steps molded into the cabin bulkhead. An anchor locker is located in the forepeak.
The cuddy design is fairly conventional, with a V-berth and space for a potty. A small galley unit with sink and counter space allows the 250 CR to qualify for a second-home deduction for income-tax purposes. A circular cabin hatch provides ventilation.
The cockpit and helm are spacious, and the pedestal seats for the captain and mate provide walkaround footroom in the forward portion. The large wraparound lounge seating aft consumes considerable space, but the upside is lots of under-seat stowage, additional sleeping space for overnighting (when the filler cushions are in place), and comfortable seating for a bevy of adults. The top of the engine box is seat height and provides a stepping point for access to the swim platform through a cut-down transom.
Skippers will find the helm both attractive and comfortable. Instrumentation features black-on-white gauges with chrome bezels mounted on black panel inset into a beige background. The compass is mounted a bit to the left of center from the captain's direct line of view (a rakish windshield prevents a direct-view mounting), but the compass is large enough to be an effective navigational device. Electrical panels are mounted adjacent to the tilt steering wheel.
A refreshment center is molded into the port side behind the mate's seat, with a similar storage area on the starboard side. The refreshment center features a pressurized water system and a 25-quart ice chest. The starboard storage area can be used for numerous items, but the most environmentally friendly use is as a waste container for recyclable and non-recyclable goods. A pedestal table can be set up in the lounge area.
The rear swim platform is huge, making it an ideal launching pad for numerous activities. The platform provides easy access to a freshwater shower, as well as an optional stereo remote-control pad. It is also an inviting lounging area where you can sit, converse and simply dangle your feet in the water. A foldaway, three-step boarding ladder makes a splash in the water even more inviting. The handy storage locker/seat on the transom is perfect for wet ski lines, dock lines, fenders and other miscellaneous gear. If the locker were a bit longer, it could swallow up skis, keeping a bulky item out of the cockpit while still providing easy access.
