Wellcraft’s 352 Fisherman blends angling, luxury and performance in a triple-outboard center-console. Step through the portside dive door and check out the bow seating that converts to twin loungers with backrests. Add a filler cushion to create a sun pad. Or put the bamboo table on its twin pedestals. A forward console seat for two offers an angled backrest and fold-down armrests. An optional Seakeeper 3 gyro-stabilizer ($51,333) adds to the comfort by eliminating roll. A pair of foldout bench seats stretch across the transom, and a starboard transom door leads to the integrated swim platform. A covered 32-gallon transom livewell doubles as an insulated cooler. An optional 12-volt DC chiller ($7,667) minimizes the need for ice. A covered sink on the portside transom has a freshwater faucet.

A covered prep station features a faux-marble countertop, a slide-out fridge below, and a 35-gallon livewell on the port side with an aquarium window. Twin 320-quart insulated fish boxes under the aft deck will keep your catch chilled. Access the console interior through the extra-wide portside door. Inside is a freshwater faucet and sink, a flushing toilet and a forward berth. The optional air-conditioning system ($4,267) is powered by a Westerbeke 3.5 kW gasoline marine generator ($17,000).

Our test boat had two helms, the main station and an optional tower station ($25,833). The main helm featured ­Mercury Joystick Piloting and two ­Garmin flush-mounted 22-inch multifunction displays for accessing the chirp fish finder, xHD2 open-array radar, FLIR ­thermal-imaging camera, chart plotter, engine instrumentation and more. Three-across bucket helm seats feature flip-up bolsters and fold-down armrests. The center seat drops away so you can also drive standing up. Swinging Mercury Revolution 4 propellers, the triple Mercury ­Verado 400R outboards propelled the 352 from zero to 30 mph in 8.6 seconds, en route to a top speed of 57 mph at 6,800 rpm. All the while, the 352 sliced smoothly through waves and carved turns with ­precision.
