What are 10 surprises you will find in these Center-Consoles?
Anglers, What’s Within That Center-Console Boat? 10 Surprises in
these boat models we love.
A center console boat has a helm station mounted near the center of the boat. They are generally open and have a variety of propulsion
systems. Generally, it will be an outboard engine.
Why buy a Center-Console?
They are great for fishing (for obvious reasons) as they maximize deck space. They also work well for families with their shade producing
T-top and running space for kids or to pull them around with tow-toys. Did we mention that Center-Consoles are cheaper because they
don’t have a cabin? They are also lighter so they can perform better with the same horsepower.
Interesting Center-Console Boat Models
In the past, center-console (CC) boats were pretty small. They even had one engine only. Beneath that console were just batteries and
wiring (and your fishing hooks). Nowadays, CC boats will have more variety.
Part of the change has come simply because center-console boats have gotten much bigger. So with twin, triple, and even quadruple
outboards, air-conditioning, and a host of other amenities you will be surprised. All that would have been unheard of even a decade
ago. With the increase in size comes an increase in space under the console, and that has given boat builders the flexibility to innovate
in that space.
