Let’s face it. As much as you think a new saltwater fishing boat is a basic necessity, not everyone sees life through the same pair of polarized sunglasses. Some might call a new fishing boat a luxury. (Gasp!) If this group includes your doubting spouse, you’ve got some splainin’ to do.
Instead of talking, try walking her through the newly redesigned 290DC Dual Console from World Cat, which combines what she likes and what you love aboard a stable, soft-riding catamaran hull.
Focus her attention on the softer side of the 290DC, starting with the wraparound seating for six in the open bow. While you ogle the integrated bow pulpit, anchor roller, Lewmar free-fall windlass and 225-quart forward fish box, point out to her the comfortable cushioned backrests and four stainless-steel drink holders.
Next, walk her slightly aft and open the 23-inch-wide acrylic door to reveal the head compartment inside the port console; then stand back as she admires the mirror and vanity with Corian countertop and stainless-steel sink, as well as the privacy of an enclosed privy with 15-gallon holding tank. Avoid mentioning that the head also provides access to the lockable rod locker, lest you reveal your ulterior motives.
