NorthCoast boats—five cabin models and six center-consoles (some of those made in modified-V and deep-V versions)—have reverse chines for stability and aggressive longitudinal strakes for better performance.
NorthCoast, based in Rhode Island, is a division of C&C Marine, which has made hulls, decks and small parts for several boat brands.
NorthCoast 230CC Deep-V
NorthCoast’s new 230CC Deep V, with 21-degree deadrise, specializes in faster travel in bigger seas. Its wide reverse chines boost stability, and NorthCoast describes it as having “one of the most pleasing sheers on the water.” Its engine is mounted on an Armstrong bracket.
There’s storage within the forward casting platform, and in-deck forward of the console, above which is a molded T-top with spreader light. The two-beanbag cockpit invites movable seating.
Standard are two illuminated, clear-topped livewells, satisfying 96 percent of CC anglers surveyed, totaling 35 gallons. The standard 14 rod holders include four gunwale-mounted, and you can add more, including swivel-butt rod holders for tuna and shark.
The family might lobby for forward cushions (40 percent of offshore CC respondents called bow seating important), folding aft cockpit seat, console head, stereo and anchor windlass. Additional fishing options include outriggers.
