The Maverick Boat Co. has expanded its Cobia family/fishing center console fleet with a new flagship: the 344CC. The boat has it all — seating and storage, a big hardtop for weather protection and a healthy list of standard fishing features, in addition to options to outfit her like a tournament-ready machine.
The Rossiter 23 Classic Day Boat made its debut this summer, becoming the largest offering in a fleet of traditionally styled models from the Markdale, Ontario, builder.
“People are really surprised by its spaciousness and comfort for a boat of this size,” says Rossiter Boats owner Scott Hanson.
If you want a sneak peak at the new Boston Whaler 420 Outrage, head offshore from Edgewater, Florida, in early September, but make sure the seas are at least 3 to 5 feet. The builder will be durability-testing the center console — the largest Whaler ever built and the first with quad outboards.
Custom builder Shannon Yachts has launched the Defiance 46, a Down East-style two-stateroom boat and an offshore cruiser through and through. Its traditional appearance, however, masks an untraditional hull design.
Reacting to the changing needs of today’s boater, Contender is offering more family-friendly small center consoles. The Florida-based builder has replaced its 23 Open with the 24 Sport (pictured), and this summer a new 22 Sport will supplant the 21 Open.
