Center Console Boats - Why are they so popular?

Posted by Leisa Legge on Tue, Nov 26, 2013 @ 12:11 PM

“Center Consoles have grown into versatile boats with features hardcore anglers have never dreamed of!” writes author Chris Landry, in recent article “Center of Attention” in Soundings Magazine May 2012. 

Center Console Sport Fishing Boats, once designed just for the hearty fisherman, are now being designed to meet the needs of families as well. They are the do-it-all boat.  The Center Console originated with the Helm being placed in the center of the boat (hence the name, Center Console), leaving an open deck, bow and stern area for all the demands of fishing (casting, reeling, dropping and pulling nets).  These open boats were specifically built to manage the rough offshore fishing waters like those found off the coast of Cape Cod. 

Traditionally designed in the 18’-28’ ft range, center consoles have been attractive to many because they are easily trailered and somewhat economical with outboard engines. And, you now have many choices in size, fit, finish and price.  As popularity has grown, so has the size. You can now find center console boats in the 30ft + range.

The open layout is still attractive for the fisherman, but now there are amenities galore including comfortable seating and extra storage needed to accommodate different groups with different needs.

Center Consoles are commonly outfitted with:

  • Baitwells for live bait

  • Insulated fish lockers to keep fish iced

  • T-tops to provides shade and rod storage.

  • Gunwale rod holders keep rods stowed away nicely

  • Outriggers for the serious angler

And, the higher–end center consoles, such as the Southport Boats Center Consoles, have extensive lists of standard equipment and options including lockable rod storage, multiple bait and insulated wells, high-end electronics, hardtops, sunshade structures and high-performance outboard engines.

With today’s economy, no-one wants a boat which is limited to just one function. Ian Kopp, President of Southport Boats states: “Our core customer is still that fisherman, but the boats need to become more versatile”. And that they have! Southport has added plush, comfortable seating, stand-up head enclosures, non-skid, single level decks and deep cockpits with stainless steel toe rails and recessed stainless steel deck grab rails!

Southport's newest model, the Southport 29' Family Edition (29' FE) recently won "Best New Powerboat under 30ft" at the 2013 Newport International Boat Show! The concept for the 29' FE originated in Newport two years ago after Southport was repeatedly asked by prospective customers to offer the larger 29' Center Consoles with the family-friendly standard seating as shown in the 27' Center Console model. Peter Galvin, Vice President of Marketing for Southport Boats says "We listened carefully, incorporated several new features, and the 29' FE was born.

Unique features of the 29' FE include forward and aft seating arrangements made with suede textured vinyl cushions, an adjustable lunch table that converts to a sun pad area, a three quarter aft lounge seat, faux granite sink/counter top and an optional entertainment center with electric grill and refrigerator. 

Standard items include a heavy duty aluminum framed fiberglass T-Top with acrylic windshield, deluxe helm seats and a remote battery / light management system.

Designed around Southport's proven safe, efficient and stable 29' hull, the 29' FE provides genuine comfort for family and friends and still delivers Southport's amazing offshore fishing capabilities.
