Sportsman 231

Release 208 RX

Maybe a smaller boat is a better fit for your driveway and your budget – the Release 208 RX fits the bill. Just because you choose a shorter hull doesn’t mean you have to give up the features you want. A molded fiberglass inner liner with bow seating, stern seating and in-deck storage give you the feel of a much larger boat.

Century 2901

If you want your new boat to be more of a family cruiser that can also fish with the best of them, start up at the bow and look for wide cushions in a wraparound seating configuration. Throw in a removable picnic table and opposing seats on the front of the center console and you have a forward area set up for entertaining.

Century2301

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.
