Boating Gear


Accon Quick Release Hinges

Bimini tops are a great addition to a boat, but they’re not always easy to install and remove. Accon Marine’s Quick Release Hinges provide boat owners with a hassle-free way to connect and detach this accessory.

Flats Boats

Action Craft ACE 19

Action Craft ACE 19

The Action Craft Extreme (ACE) combines the functionality of a flats boat and a bass boat. In its flats configuration the boat can be silently poled from the platform to stalk a bonefish on the flats.

Bay Boats

Blue Pure 2200 Pure Bay

Blue Wave 2200 Pure Bay

The large forward casting deck on the 2200 Pure Bay includes two insulated storage boxes, a long insulated fish box and locking rod storage with a unique shelf to protect your reels from damage. Castnet storage in the floor is just forward of the console seat baitwell.

Center Consoles

Dusky 278

Dusky 278 Open Fisherman

When your mission calls for a rugged center console that has to stand up to unforgiving offshore conditions, consider a time-tested hull design with a heavy bow flare. Three-piece construction that includes the hull and deck hand-laminated together produces an incredibly strong hull.

Express / Cuddy

The double step on the hull bottom enhances the boats performance and the bow mounted thruster makes docking a breeze.

EdgeWater 368CC

To refer to this boat as a center console is a bit of a stretch, but you can indeed fish 360 degrees around the helm. The console cabin sets it apart from most other boats in this class. Luxurious overnight accommodations, including a stand-up head, would allow a couple to take this boat on an extended outing without the need of a full service marina.
