North Rip consulted Rhode Island tournament fisherman Capt. Jack Sprengel, of East Coast Charters and Team Shimano Sportfishing, to design the layout and equipment for its new 30-foot center-console — from the perfectly spaced rod holders to the spacious fish lockers and livewells.
The North Rip 30 comes with a walk-through tuna door in the transom; 48 cubic feet of macerated, insulated fish boxes; lockable rod storage; a 42-gallon livewell plus the option for two additional wells; and saltwater washdowns fore and aft.
This New England builder employs resin-infused technology (vacuum bagging) to create a precise resin-to-fiber ratio in the hull and deck. The 30 also features a one-piece carbon-fiber-reinforced structural grid.
Standard equipment includes full-length coaming bolsters, a custom T-top with port and starboard big-game hoisting points, tackle storage in the leaning post, all-around LED lighting, and a 300-gallon fuel tank. North Rip offers optional underwater lighting; a wet bar, grill and refrigerator; and forward seating with a table.
