Does a center console fiberglass boat work better than other boats for fishing? How about doing well in people carrying and just plain cruising? Getting from the pier and into the boat?

A fish boat like the 228 CC can really work well for fishermen. She has a higher freeboard than most boats. That works well in rougher open waters. This model also has a notch transom that should be inspected. Other features can be found throughout this fishing boat model that give a real positive impact on your ability to chase and catch fish. This is a good selling, single engine center console.

Rated for up to 250 horsepower, most of these boats go fishing with a Yamaha 225 horsepower outboard. That outboard gives almost 3 MPG at 3,500 RPM and 21 MPH. Speed up to 4,500 RPM and the speed numbers go up to 33-34 MPH. Mileage is still good. Top speed, if you ever use it, is around 46-47 MPH with the 225 horsepower Yamaha outboard motor. Yamaha along with Honda was an early four stroke outboard engine manufacturer.

Edgewater also just now makes this boat model with a center mounted diesel engine for even better mileage. Seabuddy looks forward to doing a boat test on of those. Edgewater calls that model a 228CCD.

Pretty much all of these 228 Edgewater center console boats are used with a T-top. Look for boat test numbers for a center console equipped with one, as it can affect your complete boat test performance numbers.
