With the redesign of OffShoreOnly.com‘s home page this week, Matt Trulio kicks off his weekly column with a look at the blossoming go-fast center console market.
On numbers alone, the custom center console movement in the go-fast powerboat world is impressive. Consider this: in 2012, Cigarette Racing Team introduced two new center console offerings—the 39′ Top Gun Open and the 42′ Huntress—in addition to another iteration of its 39′ Top Fish. In the past three years, Nor-Tech Hi-Performance Boats has introduced 39-, 34-, and 29-foot center consoles, and a 42-footer is in development. Statement Marine also came to the center console party in 2012 with a plush 36-footer to go with its 37- and 34-foot siblings.
