Bowen 28 Zandoli

DSC00248Named after Trinidad’s famed lizard, our current flagship model developed in 1971 was the second boat to be launched by Brian Bowen.

As the story goes, Brian was testing the engines in his new race boat when a Zandoli lizard decided to use one of the exhausts as his over night home. The next day, the engines overheated as the lizard had clogged one of the water intakes.

He christened his new race boat “Zandoli” in honor of his uninvited guest. The Zandoli is also know to stick to the waves as the actual lizard sticks to walls etc.  The 28 established Bowen in the Caribbean and the rest of the world and created our motto- The Driest boat in rough seas. The 28 can easily handle 8-12 people on a minimum of 400 hp and purrs with today’s big power plants. In 2013 with and investment of over US$120,000 the molds for this boat was completely reworked without changing the hull design, to give the best finish the 28 has ever seen. Brian would be proud of this boat!

Take a ride in this boat and you will see why the 28 is such a commodity in every market we enter. The Zandoli is available in a standard center console, but can be customized in a cuddy cabin, side console or 2 seat side console format or any combinations. This boat is a workhorse for both pleasure and for fisherman.
