Florida custom boatbuilder Salt Shaker says its new 330 Family Fisherman combines the versatility of a center console with the comfort of a walkaround.

The 330 has a standup cabin with a galley and a standup head inside its large “command console.” There is storage underneath the V-berth in addition to drawers and a hanging locker. The cabin also has a forward hatch and vent.

The boat’s deck and the self-bailing cockpit have non-skid surfaces, and a full-length swim platform is standard. The cockpit is equipped with two fishboxes, a 50-gallon circular live well, four rod holders, port and starboard rod storage, fresh- and saltwater washdowns, and additional storage areas.

The hand-laid fiberglass hull measures 36 feet LOA, including its integral bow pulpit, and has a beam of 10 feet, 6 inches.

The 330 Family Fisherman is designed to go offshore, according to the builder, with a deep-vee hull that has 22 degrees of deadrise at the transom and 65 degrees forward. It carries 300 gallons of fuel and 50 gallons of fresh water.

The boat has a top speed of 42 mph and cruises at 32 mph when equipped with twin 225-hp Honda 4-stroke outboards. Base price for this combination is $156,500. The 330 is available with twin 300-hp Yamaha HPDI 2-strokes, starting at $159,500.
