Go big or go home! We wanted to highlight center consoles 30 feet and larger from the 2017 Miami Boat Show. Impossible to cover them all, this gallery features 17 different eye-catching models from top boat makers.
Albury Brothers Boats
The Albury Brothers 33 features an 11-foot beam. Stowage abounds from the forward-seating areas to the fish boxes to the console head compartment to the aft lazarette.
Bahama Boat Works
The Bahama 41 center console featured triple Yamaha F350s at the boat show. Not good enough? The vessel can handle up to 1,700 horsepower. It holds 580 gallons of fuel and includes a 60-gallon livewell.
Meticulous care was taken when building the BlackWater 36 SportFish. Backing plates are glassed into the hull at attachment points for hinges, hardtop, leaning post, and console.
Check out this seating arrangement on the BlackWater 36. Both forward- and rear-facing seats give your crew plenty of places to sit. In lieu of the aft-facing seats, BlackWater also offers a leaning post.
The Contender 32 comes in a stepped hull or traditional deep-V design. Expect a fully loaded boat to weigh 11,650 pounds.
Contender’s 35 ST features step hull; a length of 34 feet, 5 inches; 400-gallon fuel capacity and 24.5 degrees of transom deadrise.
The 32-foot Glasstream 328 SCX features a 40-gallon water capacity and 200-gallon fuel capacity. Recommended power is twin Mercury 300 or 350 Verados. Other attributes include a leaning post with rod holders and a fiberglass stringer system.
The Grady-White Canyon 336 features a 333-gallon of fuel capacity, comfortable console seating, three insulated fish boxes, fold-away aft bench seating, 29 inches of cockpit depth..
Inside the lockable console you’ll find a marine toilet, stand-up shower area, a vanity with sink and freshwater faucet, rod stowage and comfy berth.
The HydraSports Custom 53 Sueños is the first boat to be awarded Structural Composites’ MIL-TOUGH Rating. The MIL-TOUGH Rating comes from the use of performance composite materials and advanced, lightweight structural design system.
The HydraSports Custom 53 Sueños at the boat show was rigged with quad Seven Marine 627 engines. On the HydraSports Custom website, the company states that the 53 Sueños has no maximum horsepower.
At a length of 47 to 49 feet (depending on the model), the Insetta 45 has impressive deck space and roominess throughout the boat. The twin hulls and wide footprint provide stability in foul weather conditions.
The Insetta 45 is available with diesel engines (twin Yanmar ZT370 diesel sterndrives) or outboard engines maxing out at 1,400 horsepower.
The Invincible 42 is available with triple or quad outboards. The 42 tops out at speeds in excess 65 mph, according to Invicible. The boat also boasts a 600-gallon fuel capacity.
Cushioned seats in front of the console provide extra space to rest. Still there’s plenty of room at the bow for an oversize cooler and other storage compartments.
Jupiter’s Posi-Stern hull pad on the 38 HFS creates a variable dynamic stern lift that increases efficiency by providing a perfect running attitude, resulting in higher speeds, superior handling, increased fuel economy and a smoother ride with no loss of visibility from the helm, according to Jupiter.
Standard features of the 38 HFS include a bait-prep center with a 53-gallon livewell.
Mag Bay Yachts
The 33 Mag Bay features a 338-gallon fuel capacity, 70-gallon livewell in the transom, and a 40-gallon well in the deck.
There are two primary configurations for the 33 Mag Bay: a shorter-console version tailored to fishermen and a longer-console version for those interested in cruising.
The new Prowler from Marlow is a center console open fisherman that features a very large head with shower, natural lighting and ventilation with over six feet of headroom.
Marlow Yachts are known for their classic lines and cockpit volume, but the boats still offer anglers plenty of features and comforts.
The MO7 400 GTS is a speed demon, able to hit speeds of 65-plus mph, but also has plenty of fish features like two large fish boxes to store your day’s catch.
Pictured, this boat show model was rigged with triple Mercury Verado 350s. Max HP is 2,100.
Starting with three-piece composite construction, using glass and Kevlar, the Nor-tech 392 Super Fish features a single-level cockpit that’s self draining via an under-deck plumbing system glassed into the cockpit liner.
The versatile Regulator 31 is equipped with twin 300 Yamaha engines, a massive cockpit, oversized tackle center and fish box — and all the other necessary features for a day of serious offshore fishing.
Borrowing some popular features from the Regulator 41, the 31 has a starboard dive door, integrated forward-seat backrests (not pictured), transom fish box and livewell, and various helm seating options.
Pictured is Scout Boats founder and CEO Steve Potts showing off the brand new Scout 380 LXF at this year’s show. The 380 is built on Scout’s epoxy-infused, double-stepped fuel-efficient hull to provide stability while reducing the overall weight.
Scout 380 LXF
The SeaVee 370Z utilizes a lightweight, cored hull with twin steps to produce maximum speed and efficiency, while also giving anglers plenty of deck space and stowage capacity, according to SeaVee.
The 370Z is beamy enough to accommodate the SeaVee 390 console. That means plenty of space for electronics (two 16-inch navigation units and VHF radio). A splash cover protects your electronics from unwanted exposure.
