Default Fastech 292 cabin

hi everyone, i'm about to buy a fastech 292 2005 as a second boat for the holiday home, i would like to know if anyone has already spent the night in a 292 we are 2 normal size adults and 2 children low ages, I was thinking of making a second bed with the 2 banquets I don't know if someone already has it if yes I would like to see a photo, I also thought of modifying the counters to put a fridge in it someone has already done that?

Many years ago I had a 312 and a local guy had a 292. At a raft up we compared cabins and his was ALOT smaller. We overnighted with 3 young kids and it was TIGHT. My memory of that 292 was that there was no way we could have done what we did in that boat. I did add A/C and it already had a frig.

my wife and i slept on our 292 once.

once.

it was hot, humid, cramped. i gave her the 'bed' and broke my neck on the 'couch'...

i don't recommend it. we plan to air bnb next time we get to actually go somewhere.
and someday own a bigger boat but for now, we go fast.

Look for a larger boat with 502mags. Those things burn a little oil but will run FOREVER with minimal upkeep.

In the photo gallery thread there is a Fastech 292 with an air conditioner and full camper enclosure - get a hold of that guy if you can.


I don't plan on overnighting on my 292 but I could see taking a nap in the cabin, or kids taking a nap in there.


As for "t500hps" who says the 292 cabin is "ALOT" smaller than the 312... he/she is completely full of **** and has rose tinted glasses on because the 312 was the boat they owned. The 292 actually has more sleeping/sitting area in the cabin than the 312 because the 312 has a fridge on one side and a hanging locker on the other side taking up space. You can sit 5 comfortably in a 292 cabin, you can sit 4 comfortably in a 312 cabin. The 312 does have an inch and a half or so more headroom in the cabin which may make it feel bigger than it is.

I have spent a few overnights on my 292. Once with 2 other adults and about 5 times by myself. Its not comfortable, even alone. Im purchasing a portable AC unit to make it tolerable. But even then I will be keeping overnights to a minimum.

A 292! It is what it is.. Once you have that thought in your mind, it's tolerable. My gal and myself sleep in it on the weekends and did a 120 mile RT vacation for a week to Ft Myers, Fl. some months ago. I'm 225 lbs, 6 ft. It's not the best boat to get in and out of when sleeping. But it's doable. I also put in shore power and AC.

When we get home, we enjoy the King Size bed
