GRADY-WHITE CANYON 326 CENTER CONSOLE

Introduced for the 2019 model year, Grady-White’s new 326 CC introduces next-gen styling to their Canyon lineup of bluewater center consoles. I have done dozens of away fishing charters on Grady-White boats, where after spending 14-to-16 hours and over 150+ nautical miles in a variety of sea conditions, you really get to know what a boat can and can’t do out on the briny.

NORTHCOAST 280CC

Recently introduced as the sister ship to the 285 Cabin, albeit it is using a deeper-vee 24-degree running bottom, the new NorthCoast 280 CC takes a no nonsense, all-business approach to getting you offshore and back in the rough stuff to play where the big fish call home. Read more »

CONTENDER 44ST

The new 44ST reminds me of their popular 39ST, but like a supersized version on steroids. This is one mega-sized canyon-running sportfisher. But unlike many of her mid-40s ilk, the Contender 44ST doesn’t stray too far from her roots. Read more »

EVINRUDE’S NEW 3-CYLINDER E-TEC G2 OUTBOARDS

Historically in the world of two-stroke and four-stroke outboards, engines in the 115 to 150 HP range have typically adopted a V-4 or V-6 configuration. Over the past 10 to 12 years, four-strokes in this power bandwidth have evolved into an in-line four cylinder configuration to try to save both space and weight on the transom. Read more »

WORLDCAT 400DC-X

The big news from this North Carolina based catamaran builder is not just the debut of their queen of the fleet 400DC-X, but the enhanced fishing potential of her two sisters that are coming soon - the 400CC-X center console and the 400TE-X Tournament Edition center console. Read more »

SAILFISH 360 CENTER CONSOLE

Introduced for the 2019 season as the biggest and baddest Sailfish center console to date, the new 360CC will give anglers and crews a multi-mission platform that is equally adept at the 100-fathom line as she is taking a crowd of family and friends to the beach or a local waterside eatery.

STEIGER CRAFT 23 DV MIAMI

The Steiger Craft 23 DV (deep vee) Miami is one of the most versatile fishing and family boats in this Bellport, Long Island builder’s fleet. Read more »

WORLD CAT 296 DC

The new World Cat 296 DC is a roomy, stable, efficient family fishing boat. We had a chance to get aboard one in Charleston, SC at the World Cat Dealer meeting. This is certainly a boat to take a close look at. For more information visit www.worldcat.com. Read more »

COBIA 240CC

I was able to jump aboard the new Cobia 240 CC on Media Day when I was down at the Miami Show earlier this year and spent an hour getting to know this Florida girl up close. In my view, Cobia represents one of the best brands of saltwater fishing boats on the market if you are looking for affordable quality and fishing functionality, plus they are upping their game with each passing season. The new 240 CC is a perfect example of this progression. Read more »

YAMAHA 425 XTO
