For years, I struggled every time I wanted to open the lid on the big cooler under my bayboat’s leaning post. The cooler serves as a fish box and the top of it sits only a few inches below the seat support. It was impossible to lift the lid more than a few inches and difficult at best to slide the cooler far enough out to be able to open it, especially if the box was filled with enough ice to chill a catch.
Having an offshore fishing boat doesn’t mean you have to compromise on family features. At the bow are twin-padded lounges that allow you to face forward while underway. Remove the cushions and backrest and the long insulated compartments below the seating become fish boxes.
Few boats are capable of combining extreme passenger comfort with tournament winning fishablity, this is one that does. Anglers will appreciate a leaner rigging station with built-in tackle storage, live baitwell and in-deck insulated fish boxes
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.
