I opted to enter the boat from the port side entry way (one of three in the boat) and I saw a simple yet effective layout. Sitting on the heavy duty vinyl lounges I was immediately drawn to the red accenting stripe that is part of the Regal package for this boat that takes a simple boat and adds some curb appeal. Having seen enough at the dock I wanted to get out in the lake to see how this bad boy would handle the slight chop we had on the small, Quebec lake. As I was drawn closer I noticed extruded style lines on the exterior gates, the Princecraft Logo and corrugated aluminum side walls that add strength along with style. There were facing benches in the bow along with a bench along the rear port side edge across from the helm.
Upon further investigation I found out there is also an Electric Lime colour option ­ something I would love to see.


While most of the features I was presented with were options, they were options every boater is going to want to get. Now even though the Jazz 180 was shown with the max horsepower of a 60 hp Mercury, I knew I wasn’t going to be breaking any speed records.
With an overall length of 19.5 feet, the Jazz 180 is proof that good things do come in small packages and with small price tags.
The smaller 8 foot 1 inch beam keeps things intimate as those on the rear bench can chat with themselves or keep the Captain company. With a top speed of 22 mph going with the wind will be enough to take the kids tubing, but if you add more people and gear you’re going to lose a few off your top speed. The boating market however is fueled and driven by affordable, quality built boats that have simple features ­- enter the Princecraft Jazz 180.


So it’s a basic boat that has modular packages to tailor your boat and budget which is an absolute must do to be successful in the ultra popular pontoon market.
But even still the boat felt solid, the ride was quiet, the frame didn’t shift or creak at all at high speeds and turns with and against the chop. Like all Princecrafts it’s a seaworthy boat that I would feel safe bringing my family aboard.
