The 360 Offshore is North Carolina builder Tideline’s biggest center console power cat to date, leading the builder’s lineup alongside the 235 Hybrid. “The 360 Offshore offers the future of offshore sportfishing combined with classic style and appeal,” says Tideline Boats co-owner George Stronach. “Our newest catamaran combines the performance, comfort and fishability of the newest high-end offshore fishing cats with the classic lines and aesthetics of a traditional, custom-built sportfishing boat.”
Die-hard anglers get two 45-gallon and two 88-gallon live wells, more than 2,300 quarts of fishbox capacity in two 815-quart deck lockers and a 688-quart foredeck coffin-style cooler, and rod stowage on the hardtop and under the gunwales. The dash can swallow up three multifunction displays to help put 360 Offshore owners on the fish.
Deck layouts are customizable. The demo boat has triple bucket seats with flip-up bolsters at the helm, an aft-facing bench in the cockpit, a lounge seat/coffin box forward of the console and a casting deck/seating area in the bow. Upholstered cushions can be added or removed.
Buyers can choose among Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda and Mercury outboards, from twin 300- and 350-hp setups to quadruple Mercury Verado 400Rs. Tideline reports a top end of 52 knots with twin Yamaha F350s, and a cruising speed of 35 knots. Base price is $275,000.
