Hurricane SunDeck 2400 OB

Maximize sportiness and roominess in a total deck-boat package.

Deck boats are multitaskers, serving as the family cruiser one minute, taking the kids wakeboarding the next. Outfitted with its optional tow-sports tower, Hurricane’s SunDeck 2400 OB handles the transition with ease, propelling riders to new heights. That tower’s spring-loaded hinge will take a load off the captain’s back and alleviate any clearance issues, whether it’s time to tow or stow.

When not pursuing all things extreme, Hurricane pays homage to its deck-boat roots. Its rectangular form produces a generous, 5-foot-square bow cockpit. An insulated cooler tucks below the step onto the bow platform. Convert it to an optional livewell for fishing duty. Adults can comfortably stretch out on the bow seats. Below, stowage is segmented into separate wet/dry areas, the former vented to prevent mildew. In the main cockpit, the helm seat features a flip-up bolster, providing a nice view over the windshield for low-speed maneuvering. An L-shaped lounge adds additional seating across the transom. A cockpit refreshment center — with sink and pullout sprayer — handles cleanup duties.

Our test boat’s Yamaha 300 V Max outboard propelled us to plane in 3.8 seconds and delivered a thrilling 52.1 mph top speed.
