When Belzona introduced its first center console a few years ago, its slide-to-open boarding doors proved to be one of the most intriguing innovations we’d seen. Today, with the 325 Center Console, that still holds true. To really appreciate the boarding doors, you need to see them in person at the dock. The gunwale doors slide aft rather than swing open as dive doors would on other boats. The doors slide on stainless-steel trolleys that mate with the self-lubricating track. Both doors proved rattle-free and watertight. Not to mention, they are much wider than the traditional hinged dive door; they are built wide enough to make this boat wheelchair-accessible — 40 inches fully opened. During rigorous testing on our sea trial, the boarding doors held tight.
