Aquasport is back. First appearing in America’s fishing waters in the ’60s, the brand is now a division of Ebbtide Holdings, building center-console, dual-console and bay boats. The ruggedly built boats are classically styled to match the needs of owners, whether they’re eyeing a day afloat skiing, cruising or fishing.

Aquasport 2500 CC

The 2500 CC is the largest of Aquasport’s three center-consoles (one-half of its roster), and it stands ready for a day of fishing.

Full-composite construction includes hand-laid fiberglass lamination with biaxial fiberglass and woven roving, an integrated fiberglass structural stringer, KV Kevlar reinforcement, and composite transom core.

The Kevlar-reinforced hull and Dyna-Core hullside construction create a durable offshore boat with a flared bow and tall freeboard promising a dry ride to the fishing grounds.

The helm is shielded by a tempered-glass windshield, while the dash has room for multiple electronics. The standard T-top features four rod holders and a pair of spreader lights; an optional fiberglass T-top adds another rod holder.

Thirty-six percent of offshore CC survey respondents call forward seating important; they and others will be served by the bow cushions that are standard on the 2500. A forward console seat tops a built-in cooler. Entry to the console is via a side door.

The 2500 features folding rear seats, as requested by 44 percent of CC survey respondents (although just 27 percent say their current boats have this feature).

Four gunwale-mounted rod holders meet the requirements of 63 percent of inshore CC anglers, and 30 percent of offshore. An above-deck insulated baitwell holds 30 gallons; 63 percent of survey respondents said one baitwell is enough. Forward fish boxes are insulated, with overboard drains. There are undergunwale rod racks port and starboard, and a swim platform is integrated into the boat.

Options include color choices, stereo system, handheld cold-water shower, trim tabs, portable toilet, and washdowns with both raw and pressurized fresh water.
