Century 2301

At first glance the 23-foot long Century 2301 was a bit understated with its 8-foot, 6-inch wide interior looking somewhat unadorned. At closer inspection we found all of the key features designed into the boat and some surprising extras.

The Edgewater 335EX

The Edgewater 335 is a powerhouse, built for the corps of anglers who enjoy long range fishing, like trips crossing to the Bahamas from Florida, or yellowfin tuna fishing trips out of Destin or Pensacola. We fished on the Edgewater 335EX out of Ponce Inlet for the “Power Drifting” episode of Florida Sportsman TV, targeting red snapper and grouper.
