Regulator Marine added a 31-footer to its fleet of center consoles, bridging the gap between its 28- and 34-foot models. “We hit the sweet spot,” says company president Joan Maxwell. “This boat is a hardcore fishing machine that gives you more space without sacrificing performance, plus it has every amenity you need for a day on the water with family and friends.”
With its twin swim platforms, enclosed head compartment and seating from bow to stern, the new Grady-White Freedom 235 dual console is designed to meet all of your dayboating needs, from fishing and water sports to snorkeling and swimming.
The latest yacht from Paul Mann Custom Boats launched this spring. The 60-foot Caught Up is a 41.5-knot, two-stateroom, two-head, cold-molded Carolina sportfisherman built for a Florida couple with plans to “travel great distances and fish often,” says company owner Paul Mann.
Bertram Yachts will follow its new 35 with a 58-foot convertible, scheduled to begin construction in June and launch in late 2017.
A Rhode Island boatbuilder will launch the second generation of its North Rip 21 this spring, improving a seakindly deep-vee center console. US Watercraft has closed the transom and moved the outboard to an Armstrong engine bracket, freeing cockpit space for a live well and storage while making the boat drier and safer, says Max Buerman, the chief financial officer and a company partner. “The 21 is versatile, perfect for the bays and capable of heading offshore,” says Buerman. “With the enclosed transom you’re less exposed to the elements when reversing or drift fishing on a current. It’s definitely safer and drier.”
