New Boats 2010

Boston Whaler

Sporting an improved version of the famous Accutrack hull system - a deep-V hull with a sharp angle of entry to tame miles of rough open water - the Boston Whaler 320 Outrage lets you enjoy comfort, tracking and a dry ride. Whaler's latest fish-fighting machine features an innovative keel pad that enhances low-speed planing and improves hole shots. There's plenty of seating fore and aft, plus ample storage space. The bow features standard cushioned seating and a lockable rod-storage area, plus an in-deck cooler.

Carolina Skiff

The Carolina Skiff 25 Elite SS can easily work as a bay boat or an offshore boat. Plush cushion bow seating and an optional deck table stow away to transform the bow into a fishable bay or offshore boat. The stern has open seating with removable cushions and a backrest to complete the bay and offshore transformation. A stylish and functional helm has dedicated space for digital gauges and ample room for electronics. The 25 Elite SS also comes equipped with step-down walk-in access with a portable potty or the optional full flushable head.
Measuring in at 24 feet, 6 inches, the EdgeWater 245 CX offers the same versatility, safety, reliability and performance of the larger boats in the EdgeWater fleet. With a deep-V hull and Single Piece Infusion (SPI) construction joined with high-grade components, this boat will do just about anything you want it to do. Moving to the interior, the bow is open, providing more fishing room, and the spacious 64-square-foot cockpit comes equipped with in-deck fish storage and room for plenty of gear. In addition, there's a portside head compartment, bow seating, a built-in aft bench seat, a raw-water washdown and a 16-gallon livewell.
Built for the love of fishing but with the cost-consciousness demanded today, the Hydra-Sports 2000 CC includes many traits of a much larger vessel. A 20-gallon lighted livewell, two forward insulated fish boxes, three-drawer tackle storage and a 120-gallon fuel tank are only a few. Value-minded anglers will appreciate that this boat runs with efficient single-engine power. It's trailerable and comes with a 10-year hull and three-year component warranty. Standard features include a forward removable 50-quart console cooler seat with removable backrest, a self-contained head and full digital instrumentation at the helm.

Maverick Mirage

Fabricated with carbon/Kevlar and vinylester-blended resin, the hull of the Maverick Mirage 18 HPX is a blown-up version of the popular 17. With a slightly longer overall length and a wider beam, the 18 is super stable, handles a larger outboard and gives anglers more range. For its size, the 18 HPX is lightweight and can still be poled with ease in the shallows. An ergonomic console with a tilt helm allows for easy stand-up driving, and it also sports a locking removable door, giving access to an interior shelf and a battery switch with main breakers. There are double dry-storage compartments on the aft deck and convenient yet secure racking for an ample selection of rods.
Everything about the Pursuit OS 345 is new, from the hull and decks to the interior. The hull was designed specifically for twin Yamaha F350 four-stroke engines. A standard bow thruster makes docking a breeze even in close quarters with a stiff wind. The express design includes an open helm with optional bridge-deck air conditioning and an aft canvas enclosure for times when inclement weather is upon you. The cockpit has ample seating and includes a recirculating livewell and a rigging station with locking tackle drawers.
The new Ranger 2310 brings updated features to the popular 2410 model, as well as distinctive aesthetic details for anglers who prefer a slightly smaller, more maneuverable rig. The hull was designed with an increased amount of bow flare, giving passengers a smooth and dry ride even in choppy seas. On the fishability front, the 2310 benefits from a modern sheer line, which produces an extra-large front casting deck with minimal gunwale height - ideal for fighting and maneuvering on fish. There is also a rear deck designed with a full transom, eliminating the need for a splashwell.
Sea Hunt BX series are different from your every day bay boats. Sure they have shallow drafts, dual casting platforms, dual aerated livewells, and lockable rod storage but these bay boats go to the extreme. More freeboard, a sharper bow entry and the Carolina Flair create a softer, dryer ride.

Sundance Flicker

Since 1993 Sundance has produced shallow-draft fishing skiffs at a reasonable price, and in that tradition now introduces their new light-tackle flats skiff, the Sundance FX17 Flicker. Just like all the other boats in the Sundance fleet, the Flicker is built with woven and stranded fiberglass and a high-density urethane foam for an all-composite, no-wood construction. Standard on the Flicker are a fully insulated livewell, trolling-motor wiring harnesses, gunwale rod storage and a custom poling platform, to name a few of the fishing features. The FX17 comes factory rigged with several choices of Yamaha outboards.

Trophy Boats

Ride, range and fishability are the trademarks of the new Trophy 2203 CC. The Trophy Hull System (THS) provides a soft, dry and safe ride on your way to the grounds. Combine this with a 104-gallon fuel tank and your choice of a Mercury or Suzuki engine and you have a fishing machine built to go the distance, whether you're inshore chasing redfish and trout or heading offshore in search of dolphin and wahoo. The 2203 is every bit as versatile as it is affordable and is a great match for those looking for a boat that combines economical operation, plentiful fishing features and solid construction.
Tournament and casual fishermen alike will appreciate the Viking 46 Open's 121-square-foot cockpit. It features a molded nonskid deck, a laminated mounting plate in the deck for a fighting chair, a rocket launcher and a table. Other cockpit amenities include flush rod holders, recessed hardware, freshwater and saltwater washdowns, tackle stowage and rounded coamings. Choose between plans including one or two staterooms, both located forward and providing a double island berth with stowage below. The galley features a three-burner electric cooktop, a microwave and a drawer-style refrigerator.
For 2010, the popular Yellowfin 36 has undergone several subtle yet notable modifications to the interior of the boat. The new model sports a 55-gallon livewell on the transom, which replaces the 35-gallon well that was on the previous model. This allows you to have a good-size well and put in an aluminum leaning post in place of the standard unit with a well. Keep that setup, and you have awesome livewell capacity. The 333-gallon main aluminum fuel tank is positioned on the centerline with two 90-gallon aluminum saddles. Along with the triple F350 Yamahas, this gives the boater a much better center of gravity, and the new 36 sports a higher deck. There are also new aft fish boxes and a new sliding hidden transom door.

The good news for boaters these days is that whether it's your first purchase or your 10th, there's no better time than now to get the boat you've always wanted. Here's a list of 12 that you might want to take for a spin.
