North Rip boats 21.
The deep-vee hull and Carolina bow flare of the North Rip 21 provide a stable and dry ride not often felt on a 21-foot center console. Scott Kinney, of North Rip Boats, describes the 21 as a "pocket battlewagon," and with good reason, as a single 200-horsepower engine (max) can punch the boat to 50 mph, traveling up to 185 miles on a single 90-gallon fuel tank. Fishermen friendly features include toe-space under the gunnels, oversize gutters and scuppers in cockpit, fore and aft fish boxes, console livewell, plenty of rod storage, and the company's patented RipSkid deck. North Rip 21's overall length is 20 feet, 9 inches; beam is 8 feet; draft is 1 foot, 2 inches; dry weight is 2,400 pounds; and transom deadrise is 20 degrees. All North Rip boats utilize core-cell foam and come with a 20-year hull warranty. Price is $62,000 matched with a 200-hp Evinrude E-TEC. For more, visit www.northripboats.com.
