Our 239FS offers the largest cockpit in its class, and loaded with features for both family comfort and serious fishing.
The 217 CC will run and fish comfortably in seas that will send a lot of other bigger boats pounding back to the dock. Additional bigger boat touches include an overboard drained fish box and a wide open aft cockpit that allows for under gunwale storage of offshore rods and gaffs. As trends change in boating we have noticed more emphasis on family activities such as water sports and cruising and less importance placed on pure fish ability.
