The Top 5 Baddest Fishing Boats Of 2019
HCB Yachts 65 Estrella
Every year it seems like center-consoles get bigger, faster, or loaded down with more electronics. In comes HCB with the 65 Estrella, now the world’s largest center-console yacht. Rated for an amazing 3,500+HP thanks to quint (that’s 5) 7Marine 625hp outboards, the 65 Estrella is sheer muscle.
Owners will love the option to outfit this rig with all of the best fishing equipment or add teak decks and extra seating to transform the 65 into a luxury tender for a motor yacht.
Viking Yachts 58 Convertible
The new Viking Yachts 58 Convertible is the 2nd generation battle-wagon to be launched from the New Gretna, NJ factory. With 165 square feet of cockpit space, built-in room for a gyro stabilizer, and Viking’s classic mezzanine seating, fishing in major tournaments on the 58C will be an experience you won’t soon forget. Enjoy the power and maneuverability that comes with twin MTU V10 2000 M96L 1600HP engines that can push the 58 to over 40 knots!
Hatteras Yachts GT-59
The builder from Carolina is back with a vengeance having released the plans for several new sportfish this year, our favorite being the gorgeous GT-59. Twin CAT C-32A 1600HP engines will push the GT-59 to 40 knots or more and Hatteras has complimented that performance with some amazing fishing options. Anglers will enjoy the strategically placed fish boxes, rod holders, and the in-transom livewells. The GT-59 is unmistakably a Hatteras with her bow flare and is sure to excite tournament fish-heads once they step on board.
Cabo Yachts 41 Express
When Cabo Yachts went out of production several years ago, everyone thought this would be the end of the legendary sportfishing brand. After several good years of sales by parent company Hatteras Yachts, the new Cabo 41 will make its world debut at the Miami Boat Show in 2019. The sporty performance of the twin Volvo D11 635 engines will get you to the gulf stream fast and with an efficient fuel burn.
Bertram Yachts 35
The iconic Bertram brand is back with the all-new 35 Convertible for the serious angler that also likes to cruise. Rugged and dependable as Bertram’s have always been built, the 35C is also equipped with a Seakeeper gyro for stabilization and comfort while at cruise. Standard power includes twin Yanmar 440hp engines, but owners can opt to increase their horsepower to twin CAT C7.1 507’s.
