If fishing’s your thing, consider the Scout 350 XSF ($295,289 with twin Yamaha F300s, scoutboats.com), which has a small cuddy cabin built into the console and a much smaller sun pad just forward of the console, but with the open bow arrangement and main cockpit layout more familiar to the piscatorial set.
The Scout and Intrepid are both faster boats, with the option for triple outboard configurations. (The Key Largo is capable of reaching 50 mph, though we weren’t able to hit that on test day as our engines didn’t reach the top range — 6,000 — of their rpm band.) Still, when put through its paces, the Key Largo 34 handled like a dream, carving tight turns and sexy S-curves and taking on other boat wakes with nary a shudder or rattle. It also handled well in the tight confines of the marina, easing in and out of its slip with the aid of the bow thruster. Maintenance on the basics — batteries, filters — is easy thanks to a technical storage room under the cockpit sole accessed via a teak ladder.
With this sporty center-console cruiser, you can pull in and out of any marina in style.
