Bayliner has been making remarkable boats for about 60 years, and the Element XR7 is no exception. The latest Element model has a sleek, modern design that offers all the benefits of a fiberglass boat with the room, luxury, and stability of a pontoon boat. The Bayliner Element XR7 completely captures everything that’s great about the boating lifestyle—the vessel is comfortable and roomy, it’s designed to host plenty of people, it’s equipped for safety and relaxation, and it was built with a smart design that maximizes the fun you can have out on the water.
Perhaps one of the best things about the Element XR7 is its capacity: the boat can comfortably fit up to 16 passengers, meaning you and 15 of your closest friends and family can go for a ride in luxury, and make memories to last a lifetime on this boat. The large deck is laid out with plush loungestyle seating in the forward and aft sections of the boat. And when you do have a full house, the enclosed head in the starboard console offers total privacy, unlike the traditional folding canvas curtain used on most pontoons. And to make water access and aquatic activities more accessible, there are folding ladders both forward and aft, a portside boarding gate, and swim steps.
While the Element XR7 comes standard with a 150horsepower FourStroke motor from Mercury, there’s also the option to upgrade to Mercury’s 200horsepower Verado motor. But even with the additional power and higher speeds, each seat on the boat still feels safe and secure. The Element XR7 is also equipped with infloor storage and two large ski lockers, giving you easy, safe, and convenient places to store all your gear, even when you're traveling at top speeds.
One of the first things you notice about the Element XR7 is that it’s a pontoonstyle without the full pontoon design. That’s because the new Element was built with the proprietary Mhull design that’s more like a trimaran than a pontoon, giving the boat more stability, better tracking, and more predictability in rough and calm waters. What's more, the fiberglass construction also makes the Element XR7 better for tow and wake sports like water skiing and wakeboarding, and makes the boat better suited for saltwater cruising. Safety was also a primary consideration in the design of the new Element, so the helm console was built on a raised platform that sits five inches higher than the deck, giving the driver a better line of sight and more headroom.
Starting at just $39,999, the Element XR7 is a luxury vessel at an economy price, especially when you consider the innovation and ingenuity that went into the design. The standard features in the latest Element are often pricey addons in other boats because this craft was built for luxury and comfort as much as it was for fun on the water. Bayliner has succeeded in seamlessly merging all the best qualities of a pontoon with a fiberglass boat. The resulting Element XR7 is a recreational vessel that offers room, comfort, stability, storage, and safety unlike anything else on the market, and that encapsulates the essence of the boating lifestyle so well that you'll wonder how you ever got along without it.
