Cypress Cay’s Seabreeze 233 is a Great Family-Friendly Pontoon Boat
Cypress Cay provides a great family-friendly pontoon boat in the new Seabreeze 233. The Mercury FourStroke 150 outboard motor with a quiet but gutsy Mercury FourStroke 150 outboard went from 0 to 30 mph in just 6.9 seconds, planed in 3.5 seconds and topped out at just over 37 mph with the engine revving at 5,500 rpm. The decibel meter barely broke 80 decibels even at full speed. This package is thrifty too. The most economical cruising speed occurred at 15.8 mph, where we burned 3.5 gallons per hour (4.5 mpg).
Above deck, the Seabreeze sported two long and plush inward-facing loungers in the bow section, with the captain’s helm and seating just aft. The helm is well-equipped, with a smart-looking smoked-acrylic windscreen, analog gauges, Kicker sound system and Lowrance graph. Just behind it is a unique double-bench convertible lounger that works well as fore- and aft-facing benches. Or with the addition of center filler benches, the lounger converts into a wide relaxation station great for sunbathing, napping or both. The seat back on the forward couch swings fore and aft, so the couches can face each other, or both can face forward. Two can fit comfortably on each one.
This is all surrounded by perimeter fencing with powder-coated railings and a black anodized rub rail. The lighting package on our test boat included red-blue-green fluid rope lighting under the seat bases and in cup holders.
