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.

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.

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.

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.

NORTH COAST 255 CABIN

The NorthCoast 255 HT (hard top) is the latest addition to their three-season, weather-protected, sport fishing cabin product lineup that includes the 285 (introduced last year), the 235 and the 215.

Boat Review: 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.

Sailfish 360 Center Console running

Boat Review: 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.
