While the most obvious new feature of the Deep Impact 399 Sport is its top, the builder also reworked the console inside and out.
Mark Fischer, the owner of Boats Direct USA in Miami, Fla., had at least one thing going for him when he acquired the assets of Deep Impact Boats two years ago. The proven hull for its existing 39-foot performance center console needed no improvement. But that didn’t stop Fischer and his crew from pushing to improve the 399 Sport in other areas. And between now and the end of the year, 39-footer will be going public.
The new 399 Sport center console now boasts lounge seating—complete with flip-up armrests—ahead of the console, as well as a fully air-conditioned cabin with a head locker within it. (In the prior model, the entire cabin, which has been expanded, served as a head locker and stowage space.) Deep Impact also reconfigured the boat’s helm station with a large dash that holds two Garmin 8617 and two smaller Garmin units, all networked via NMEA 2000 technology for total touch-screen operation, and new fold-down/leaning post seating.
But the most immediately obvious addition to the new Deep Impact 399 Sport is its gunwale-to-gunwale patented fiberglass hardtop, which has an aluminum inner structure. The rear section of the top even includes a built-in shower.
