Mako is now building its largest center console ever and the first with triple outboards — the 33-foot, 4-inch Mako 334 CC. Mako has not offered a boat this big since 1997’s 333 Attack, a twin-outboard open-cockpit express with an LOA of 33 feet, 9 inches.
Ranger Tugs this year put the finishing touches on its first outboard-powered model, the R-23. “The outboard power gives us a chance to offer a lower price and still continue to offer a trailerable, fuel-efficient boat,” says Sam Bisset, Ranger director of communications.
With more flare at the bow, increased freeboard and a deeper cockpit, the new Boston Whaler 280 Outrage better fulfills its mission as an offshore center console, says sales and marketing vice president Jeff Vaughn.
The Eastport 32 is a distinctive sight on the water, with its Chesapeake deadrise profile atop a Carolina sportfish underbody. Twin diesels have powered all of the Eastports launched thus far, but company owners Tom Weaver and Mick Price are now offering outboard power.
Scout Boats added the 231 XS to its bay boat fleet, a 23-foot shallow-draft fishing boat that joins the 251 XS and 177 Winyah.
