The Center Console Advantage
SeaHunter center console boats are an adaptable type of vessel that can be used for a variety of activities. These boats are typically single-decked with an open hull and a center oriented console. Some models have cabins located in the bow of the boat but the main feature of center consoles is the boat deck. The open concept allows for easy maneuverability and ensures that nearly every feature of the vessel is within reach.
Fishing with Center Console Boats
Once upon a time, a 25ft boat with twin motors was an exceptionally sized vessel. Now, we have center console boats equipped with quad motors that can hold 700 gallons of fuel. These boats, like the ones manufactured by SeaHunter Boats, have completely changed the game. Not only are center console boats absolutely perfect for fishing, but they allow anglers to fish for a variety of species and explore different ecosystems like never before.
In addition to superior versatility and range, center console boats possess unmatched fishability. For example, if you hook a fish at the transom, you can easily move around the boat to the bow if the fish makes a run. You can cast from virtually anywhere on the boat, utilize an outrigger setup for trolling, and run kites off of any end of the boat.
SeaHunter Boats was formed in 2002 with performance, control, and comfort as its driving foundational elements. Prior to founding SeaHunter, Ralph Montalvo owned and operated the largest FAA repair company in the United States. As a result, SeaHunter was established on the basis of a strong aerospace heritage. By using the most innovative technology and advanced materials, SeaHunter exceeds NMMA (National Marine Manufacturer Association) standards.
These boats are designed for professionals and weekend warriors alike. From the bow to the stern of each and every SeaHunter, every detail has been perfectly engineered for both functionality and safety.
