With a transformable cockpit and a 40 HP engine, the Bwa 19 Sport is a comfortable and fast rib, good for the needs of many boaters.
Thirty knots, for a 6-meter rib with 40 HP…not bad at all! It’s the closing line after our first contact with the 19 Sport. A multi-purpose rib, capable of good performance, comfort and much fun. On top of it, the two tone tubular with red stripe and the Bwa logo give a distinctive look.
Onboard there’s place for six adults, every one with a seat and a proper back. Guests can stay on the aft couch or on the front bench just beyond the helm station. As for for sunbathing, the space is good as well: in addition to the fore deck the aft seatback can be tilted to turn into another large bed, where the sides work as headrests.
And the pilot will feel at ease too. The seat can be moved into two different positions, to fit the will of the captain, and lifted to reveal a storage area underneath. The dashboard is compact, but leaves enough space for screens and gauges: which is beneficial also for the look as the empty surface is a bit too…empty.
Across the cockpit there’s plenty of storage areas, and the larger lids are conveniently assisted by pneumatic posts. One big area can be found under the helm station.
The price of the BWA 19 Sport is €17.863 euro + VAT. The option list includes a roll-bar and a bimini sunshade.
