EdgeWater’s new 230CX dual‑console crossover model blends standard features such as integrated swim platforms and a retractable bow table with an insulated fish box, underwater LED lighting, and a 12-gallon livewell to deliver a multipurpose platform.
The smallest of EdgeWater’s crossover lineup—all of which are under 30 feet—the 230CX features the company’s single-piece infusion construction and powder-coated aluminum hardtop. The vessel’s other standard fishing amenities include undergunwale rod racks and freshwater and raw-water washdowns.
“What some boat manufacturers call luxury or custom, we call standard,” says Jennifer Butera, EdgeWater’s president and CEO. “There’s a need for all these features; why make that a special request?”
Max power for the 22-foot-8-inch hull is 300 hp; the boat carries 106 gallons of fuel. In factory testing with a Yamaha F300, the 230CX reached a top speed of 45.5 mph, turning 6,000 rpm and achieving 1.73 mpg. At 4,000 rpm and 29.5 mph, the boat logged 2.57 mpg for a range of about 250 miles, based on 90 percent fuel capacity.
