Florida Sportsman Classics: Edgewater’s 335EX Express Cabin Boat
We fished on the Edgewater 335EX out of Ponce Inlet for the “Power Drifting” episode of Florida Sportsman TV, targeting red snapper and grouper.
Aboard were Roger Taylor, of Edgewater, three of his friends, Capt. Mark Rogers, myself and FS cameraman Matt Weinhaus. The seven of us had plenty of room on deck, in the helm station, and in the cabin, though we spent most of our time catching fish, and the deck wasn’t even crowded with seven of us.
I only wished we hadn’t turned back after limiting out on red snapper and bagging a few good grouper and instead had kept going to The Bahamas where we might have really put the boat’s cabin to use on an overnight tuna trip.
The Edgewater 335EX has high grade craftsmanship and built-in features like tackle drawers and cabin furniture from top-grade Florida makers. The 335EX features three cockpit baitwells that total 123 gallons; a transom fish box and a 125-gallon box under the cockpit floor. The cabin offers a well-appointed galley, dinette and air-conditioned berths that sleep up to six people. Deadrise is 20 degrees. Draft without engines is 27 inches. Maximum horsepower is 700, with a fuel capacity of 300 gallons. Standard bow thrusters simplify docking. Overall length is 34½ feet, beam just over 11 feet.
