The first thing that strikes you about this boat is the huge amount of space up in the bow, and that’s a hallmark of the HD series and the beamy wraparound front seating that differentiates it from the more traditional profiled Horizon series. The impact on onboard space is tremendous, allowing plenty of seating, space for a built-in cooler, and the ability to add a filler cushion and convert the bow into a queen bed-sized sunpad. A bow swim platform with a boarding ladder is a nice touch.

An available wind dam works with the HD5’s substantial windshield to fully close off the cockpit when running in cool weather, allowing boaters to greatly extend their season.

At the helm, fog-resistant gauges are standard and twin digital touchscreens are available as an upgrade. Fly-by-wire digital throttle and shift comes standard.

The passenger console includes a spacious head compartment, with a porta-potti provided and a VacuFlush unit available as an upgrade.

The driver and companion enjoy comfortable bucket seats with swivel bases, with hot tub-style seating in the main cockpit. Cockpit width is enormous for a boat of this size, while the power tower allows plenty of headroom below the large Bimini top.

The stern seat features a flip-flop backrest for forward- or aft-facing seating as desired. In the aft-facing position, the seat forms an inviting sunpad.

An available bamboo pedestal-mount table can be used in the bow, cockpit or on the swim platform for maximum versatility.

“The HD5 is really the best of all worlds when it comes to a bowrider sportboat,” says Matt Mrozinski with Lake Michigan Yacht Sales. “You get the space and extra bow seating of a deckboat with the handling and performance of V-hull.”
