Grand Reveal of Center Console Series
Built for Purpose while pushing the limits of the offshore, Wellcraft had dedicated its focus to enhance the comfort and convenience of its center consoles. The brand-new 2024 Fisherman models, the 243 and 263, were unveiled in booth 2047 at the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center at 12:00pm on Wednesday, October 25th, 2023 to event attendees. Included in the new line-up is the 223 which was not present at this year’s show.
Wellcraft has redesigned the Fisherman series to include a fully bonded glass windshield with a power operated vent which provides enhanced visibility and protection while facing the elements of the offshore waters. The support legs of the fiberglass T-Top are recessed into the center console creating more space for maneuvering around the boat and the cabin is now accessible with a lateral opening door. The helm station has been reworked to incorporate additional screen space and advanced technology. The hardtop features an integrated accessories box in which boaters will find easy access to electronic devices. The rest of the console is designed to provide unobstructed views of your desired destination. Maintenance and equipment management has never been more straightforward as all 2024 Wellcraft models will come with a 1-year pre-paid subscription to SeaNapps allowing you to track engine hours and maintenance needs right from your phone.
Dual upholstered helm seats with adjustable bolsters now feature a dedicated “Cooler Cave” where you can conveniently store a cooler with an additional storage area perfect for keeping tools and tackle within easy reach. Forward- facing backrests are now included as part of the bow seating package enhancing comfort for passengers and the transom seat has been reworked for easier access to the bilge. These enhancements to the Fisherman Series were incorporated to extend your time and distance offshore to take full advantage of pushing your limits.
