The Top 5 Center Consoles Over 40 Feet

Center console boats over 40 feet have become the hot trend in recent years.  In this blog post, I’ll decipher all the noise to come up with the top five boats in my opinion.  The info is based upon my personal experience at the Ft. Lauderdale Int’l Boat Show as well as additional communications directly with the respective manufacturers.



Below is a list of all the boats I reviewed.  These boats made the list because they met the following criteria; high-quality build, builder reputation, popularity, functionality and design aesthetics.  The boats listed in bold are the boats I used for my comparison.  The boats not listed in bold were not included in the final results because I never was able to get performance figures from them when I reached out.  However, they are still on my initial list because I think they’re worthy.   Finally, you can click on each boat to be re-directed to their respective webpages for specific info.

Boston Whaler Outrage 420

Grady White Canyon 456

Invincible 42 Open Fisherman

Valhalla 41

Yellowfin 42

HCB 42 Siesta

Scout 42 LXF

Jupiter 43

Pursuit S408 Sport

Intrepid 407 Panacea

Contender 44 ST

Everglades 435cc

Regulator 41

Blackwater 43

SeaHunter Tournament 45


It was important that the top contenders had nice amenities down below.  With price tags around $1 million I would expect it.  The boats with the nicest cabins were the Grady White, Jupiter, Everglades, Boston Whaler and Pursuit.



The boats reviewed had varying performance numbers.  The best boats for cruising efficiency and range were the Invincible, Valhalla, Scout and Intrepid.  The best boats for top speed were the Invincible, Valhalla, Intrepid and Contender. Keep in mind that most of the boats could go even faster with larger power packages and some boats even had unlimited horsepower (i.e. HCB).

Average Price: $940,733

Average Horsepower: 1700

Average Cruising Speed: 35 mph

Average Top Speed: 63 mph

Average MPG at Cruise: .83

Average Range: 406 miles



Based upon all the information I’ve gathered, here are the top five boats over 40 feet;

#5 Jupiter 43 (Beautiful looks, fantastic cabin, high-quality fit & finish, good performance)

#4 Pursuit S405 (Modern design, nice cabin, solid performance & price)

#3 Scout 42 (Luxurious, most family-friendly, great quality, lots of amenities)

#2 Valhalla 41 (Best quality, iconic Viking reputation, almost identical to Invincible but more expensive)

#1 Invincible 42 (Best performance, best price)

At the end of the day, my top boat boat over 40 feet was a toss-up between the Valhalla and the Invincible.  The reason I picked the Invincible is because it was almost identical to the Valhalla but was approximately $150,000 less expensive.  That being said, the quality of the Valhalla and legendary corporate backing is second to none.  Also, despite not having performance numbers for inclusion, I feel the Yellowfin 42, the Blackwater 43 and Intrepid 407 Panacea are excellent choices.

I utilize the service and benefits of Boat U.S.  They are a great organization that every boater should consider. You should too.  Click HERE to learn more.

Center Console boats for sale

Center Consoles are popular boat types due to their multi-purpose design for both fishing and family fun. Center Consoles are single-decked boats that have the console in the center of the boat. The console of a boat houses its controls, steering, throttle(s) and electronics. Most often used for fishing, the design allows people to walk around the entire boat. Some Center Consoles may include a T-Top over the console, which helps to provide relief from the elements, and larger Center Consoles often have a cabin and/or head. Typically ranging in length from 18 feet to 40 feet (or larger), Center Console boats are also popular choices for yacht tenders.

How are Center Consoles built?

Center Consoles are fiberglass boats and come in a variety of sizes and hull designs, including deep V-hulls, flat hulls and powercats.

Center Console boats that are more than 20’ in length typically have a head compartment in the console, and Center Console boats greater than 30’ may also feature a small cabin inside in the console.

What type of propulsion do Center Consoles have?

Center Consoles are powered by outboard engines. Nowadays, there are many options for powering a Center Console due to the variety of engine models and horsepower available. Depending on the size of the Center Console boat, it can have one engine to as many as five or six engines.

Optional Equipment for Center Consoles

Center Consoles generally come standard with seating at the helm and bow, basic fishing equipment (fishbox, livewell, rod holders/storage), dry storage and a swim ladder. Newer Center Consoles come with even more standard options such as XM radio, LED lighting, fiberglass T-Top and factory-installed electronic packages. The accompanying outboard engine(s) is also standard on the boat.

Because Center Console boats are so versatile, there are many options for add-on equipment, including electronics, storage, accessories, seating and much more. Depending on how the boat will be used, boat owners can customize their Center Console to fit their needs.

Electronics such as GPS/navigation, radars, depth & fish finders, stereo systems, lighting, satellite phones & radios, speed/performance controls - and many, many more - can be customized to fit the needs of the boat owner.

There are also a variety of accessories that can be added to a Center Console - from upgrading seating comfortability to adding tops and shade accessories, as well as additional wet/dry storage. Anglers may want to add fishing options like outriggers or trolling motors. If a Center Console is going to be used for family fun, ski and wakeboard towing accessories can also be added.

As you can see, Center Console boats are easily customized to fit the needs of the boat owner - from fishing to cruising to family fun!

The Yellowfin 54' Behemoth!

February, 2017

Beginning in 2009 with the introduction of the Hydra-Sports 4100 Vector, we have seen some big center consoles introduced in recent years. Aside from the Boston Whaler 420 Outrage, all are custom or semicustom boats designed for deep-pocket anglers who want the biggest and best. Nothing, however, came close to the 50-foot mark until the 2015 Miami Boat Show where Hydra-Sports unveiled their ground-breaking 53 Suenos.

Listed below are today’s crop of big center consoles, all of which might be better called center console "yachts" since their roomy cabins and luxury features define them as an entirely new class of boats. Hard to believe that this category didn't even exist just five short years ago.


At a Glance:  Family-friendly sportfisher loaded with amenities is the only big center console with an outboard bracket. Features include hull dive door with in-deck swim ladder, twin 40-gallon transom livewells, large transom fish box, air conditioned helm, fold-away transom seat, 360-degree cockpit bolsters. Forward casting deck doubles as an entertainment area with retractable bow table and seats with adjustable backrests. Combo tackle center/­cockpit galley is optional. Posh cabin (with side entry) features fully equipped galley, convertible dinette with cherry table, enclosed head/shower with Corian counter. Exceptional visibility thanks to the high bridge deck sole. Note built-in coolers on the mezzanine seating behind the helm. Deep-V hull (no steps) is heavier than most. Quad Yamaha F350s top out at 55 knots.


Edenton, NC

At a Glance: Badass tournament machine with super-clean lines ranks at the top for finish, looks, and fishability. An exceptional boat of uncommon quality and design. Standard features include 60-gallon transom livewell, 90-gallon in-deck well, forward seating/fish box, bait prep area with fresh and saltwater, numerous fish and dry-storage boxes. Hatch interiors are finished and gelcoated, and hatches are sealed with unique double-O-ring system to prevent leaks. No sub-console cabin with dinette and galley for the wine and cheese crowd, just storage and a marine head. Too bad about that front step. Composite deep-V hull is lightweight (less than 10,000 lbs. dry), fast, seriously fuel efficient. At least a foot narrower than other boats in her class. Tops out in the low to mid 50-knot range with triple — not quad — 350 Yamaha outboards.


West Palm Beach, FL

At a Glance:  Quad-powered tournament monster is said to have the most square footage of any outboard center console on the market. Standard features include leaning post with tackle storage and rear facing cooler seat, forward lounge seating with cooler under, three large livewells, and an in-deck rod locker. Thirty rod holders line the console, and the tackle station comes with drawers, sink, cutting-board top, and removable tackle boxes. Note console AC vents and centerline transom door. Triple helm seat is joined by second-row seating for three more adults plus a bow lounge area. The Sea Hunter’s step-down cabin with hardwood flooring boasts a queen-size bed, sink, hideaway head, TV, and microwave. Kevlar reinforced hull with padded bottom and stepped transom delivers about 55 knots top with quad F350s.


Princeton, FL


At a Glance:  A super-distinctive boat — Midnight Express styling compels everyone to stop and stare. Said to be the first speedboat in her class powered with six outboard engines and controlled with two throttles instead of six. Expansive deck layout can entertain a small crowd. Features include hullside dive door with integrated ladder, state-of-the-art dash with space for three video displays, U-shaped bow seating with retractable table, cockpit galley with sink and refrigerator. Tons of in-deck storage for and aft of the console. Efficient cabin below the helm includes a convertible dinette and head with stall shower. Carbon fiber (lightweight) hardtop and dive door are engineered to lower the center of gravity. Composite twin-stepped hull is built for serious speed. Scary fast — quad 300hp Verado outboards can surpass 80 mph.


Miami, FL


At a Glance:  Stepped hull go-fast machine with world-famous Cigarette paint combines style, power, and comfort. The company calls the Huntress a center console, but the portside walkway has been replaced with the cabin access door. Well-finished cabin with high-gloss cherry cabinets includes convertible V-berth, head with shower, 32-inch flat-screen TV, Corian counters, refrigerator and sink. Highlights include a spacious cockpit with teak sole, helm seat with retractable hydraulic lounge seats, oversized forward-facing sun lounge with integrated cooler, underwater LED lights, joystick controls, bow thruster, starboard dive door. Hydraulic cabin door and powder-coated grab rails are nice touches. Note ambient mood lights in cockpit and hardtop. Five 350SCi Verados reach 70+ mph top; quad 350s approach 60 mph top.


Opa-Locka, FL

Boston Whaler 420 Outrage

At a Glance:  Luxury-class cruiser combines legendary Whaler quality with distinctive styling (note hull window) and exceptional versatility. More day boat than fishing machine. Large cockpit includes foldaway stern seat, transom livewell, and dive door. Rod holders everywhere. A forward-facing, fold-out bench behind the helm seats three or four guests — fold the bench up for use as a leaning post. Rigging station with sink can be replaced with an optional "summer kitchen" unit with fridge and electric grill.  Wraparound forward seating can convert to chaise lounges. A sun shade deploys from the aft hardtop at the push of a button. Well-appointed interior features a convertible double berth, galley with faux-granite counter, and head and shower. Four Verado 300hp outboards with joystick controls cruise at 30 knots (40+ top).


Edgewater, FL


At a Glance: Gorgeous center console mini yacht with distinctive reverse transom combines sport fishing utility with cruising luxury. Highlights include powder-coated hardtop with curved glass enclosure, portside boarding door, forward sun lounge with retractable teak table, sliding sunroof hatch, three-across seating module with refrigerator/freezer and electric grill, cockpit sink and cutting board, synthetic teak swim platform. For anglers, seven flush-mounted transom rod holders, an 80-gallon transom livewell, and two large fish boxes are standard. Vacuum-infused epoxy-resin construction offers greater strength with less weight than hand-laid fiberglass. Console cabin with hardwood floor features convertible dinette, TV, drawer-style fridge, microwave and head/shower. Note twin-stepped hull. Quad Verado 350s top out at 55 knots.


Summerville, SC


At a Glance:  The first jumbo center console to appear on the market and still the standard for big offshore fishing machines. Well-finished cabin includes twin berths, standup shower, electric head, microwave, and hardwood floor. Rod holders are everywhere. In 2013, Yellowfin redesigned the 42 by replacing the seated livewell with a 70-gallon transom livewell, adding a hullside door to ease entry, and moving the console and leaning post forward 18 inches to reduce bow rise and increase cockpit space. Exemplary fit and finish throughout. High performance fully cored hull has twin steps to reduce drag. Cruise at 40 knots (nearly 60 knots top) with four Mercury 300hp Verado—or triple Yamaha F350—outboards. Many offshore anglers consider the Yellowfin 42 to be as good as it gets in a big center console.


Bradenton, FL


Invincible 42 Open Fisherman

At a Glance:Dedicated fishing platform with double-stepped hull is sleek, agile, built for speed. Single-level deck provides full 360-degrees of unobstructed fishability. For overnighting, the step-down cabin with teak trim includes convertible V-berth/dinette, L-shaped galley with sink and microwave, storage cabinet, and head with shower. Fishing amenities include 53-gallon transom livewell and 64-gallon well under aft cockpit sole, and five insole fish lockers. Hullside dive door and large coffin box are popular options. Note fold-down jump seats at the transom corners and two-person lounger with fold-down armrests on the forward console. Michael Peters-designed hull features molded grid stringer system to unite bulkheads and stringers into a single, unified piece. available with triple or quad outboards. Available with triple or quad outboards with top speeds of 55+ knots.


Opa Locka, FL


Hydra-Sports 4200 Sport Fish

At a Glance:  The biggest production center console available when she was introduced in 2009. Called the 4100 Sport Fish in 2009–10. Composite deep-V hull with Kevlar reinforcement  boasts a single-piece stringer grid system for added strength. Spacious deck layout features two rows of seating aft of the center console with triple power bolster seats at the helm and a bench seat in the second row. A sun pad sits atop the coffin box. The helm console is huge with room for three big-screen displays. Below, the step-down cabin has a marine head with standup shower.

    Center Consoles

    Center consoles may be thought of as fishing boats, but they also work well for diverse activities ranging from water skiing to gunkholing to oyster tonging - and thanks to modern powerhouse outboards like the Yamaha F 350 and the Mercury 350 Verado, you can now find center consoles large enough to serve as full-blown cruising boats. Need 40 feet of LOA and a cabin with berths? That center console is out there. Want a 20-something with offshore fishing capabilities, which can still offer the comfort of a family boat? That’s no problem either. Will a simple, small bay boat fit your needs? There’s a center console out there which is perfect for you, too.

    center console fishing boats

    No matter what waterborne activity is your favorite, chances are a center console will do the trick.

    The single distinguishing factor that makes a boat a center console is, naturally, a center-mounted console with a steering station. Models from 20’ and up commonly have a head compartment inside the console, those 30’ and over may provide a true cabin in the console which sometimes also runs up under the foredeck, and some even have a small “Bimini cuddy” cabin enclosing the bow. But these aren't true cuddy cabin boats, and much less space is dedicated to the enclosure. The stern cockpit remains open and uncluttered in most models, although on many modern center consoles, fold-out seating commonly pops out of the transom and in some cases, the inwales. This is one of the newer factors that makes a center console so versatile: when you want to go fishing fold all that seating away, and when it’s time for a dinner cruise, fold it out and take the entire family along in comfort.

    center consoles cabin

    Comfort features like air conditioning or cabins with galleys, berths, and flat-screen TV's are now common on larger center console models.

    Speaking of comfort: on larger, more modern models, you’ll find that a center console can offer every bit as much as a high-styled express or cabin cruiser. Air conditioning, built-in icemakers and electric grills, form-fitting bolster seats, and potent stereo systems, for example, can all be found on center consoles in this day and age. Even advanced joystick steering control is now available in outboard-powered CC’s, thanks to new systems like the Yamaha Helm Master and the Merc Verado Joystick.

    If, on the other hand, simplicity is what you desire, again the center console aims to please. There are nearly limitless choices out there for center consoles of all sizes and hull designs, from deep-V’s to powercats, which can be had with little more than a hull, deck, and console. Added bonus: simple center consoles are among the least-expensive fiberglass boats on the market. Extra Added Bonus: they’re also among the easiest to maintain.

    Experienced boaters will already know that many do-everything boats fail to do any one thing particularly well. Luckily, when it comes to center consoles this is rarely a problem. Countless makes and models can be found which focus on specific purposes. Whether you need shallow draft for getting through back-country creeks, gobs of speed for run-and-gun style fishing, a hull that can take on heavy oceanic seas, or an alternate hull material that can bounce off of rocks, you’ll be able to find a center console of that type.

    There are, of course, trade-offs one must make when opting for a center console. In the case of smaller models, it means giving up the convenience, protection, and overnighting abilities a cabin provides. And even on 40 foot and larger models, gaining all that open outdoor space means you lose lots of interior volume. Dry stowage can also be an issue on some center consoles. And while these boats can certainly tow toys, they can’t offer the prime wakes nor the elevated towing points of dedicated watersports boats.

    If you’re a dedicated angler who likes bay, river, and ocean fishing, however, nothing else will suffice. In fact, when it comes to do-everything fishboats a center console in the mid 20 foot range is just about the only boat out there that can serve equally as well when you want to go shallow water casting on day one, jigging on day two, and trolling at the canyons on day three.

    So, what’s it going to be, you angler/family boater/water skier/cruiser? Could there be a center console in your future? It’s a good bet.
