Online Field Report: Triumph 235 CC

FS shoots the new center-cosole fisherman.


 















Triumph's new 235 CC might be called the “beauty and the beast” of smaller center consoles.

Without doubt, the craft incorporates comfort, styling and fishing functionality, while at the same time the folks at Triumph, the “World's Toughest Boats” company, keep pounding away at them to prove their own vessels' indestructibility. See Toughboats.com on the web. They've made the 235 CC and their ten other craft not with standard boat-building techniques and materials, but out of a single unit of a proprietary material called Roplene (registered) – which is “recyclable and indestructible.”
