Online Field Report: Hydra-Sports 3500VX

Exclusive FS photos of the new sportfisher/cruiser.

 

New for ’08 from Hydra-Sports, a division of the Genmar Boats, comes a beauty of a bluewater cruiser/fishing vessel, the 3500VX.

The commanding 3500VX offers that much more than the company’s popular 3300VX model–bigger, better, faster, farther. Like the 3300VX, the 3500VX has Kevlar-lined construction, a forward cabin, spacious cockpit, and a yacht’s interior styling with hot and cold showers and V-berth. Deckspace includes plenty of tackle and gear storage for any number of extended voyages.
