Dual-console boats are one of the fastest growing runabout styles on the market. For starters, they capitalize on the new enthusiasm for outboard power and its easy maintenance. Second, dual consoles provide the cruising comforts of a bowrider but with the ruggedness and smooth ride of an offshore boat. Third, they incorporate the best of all possible fishing features to make them as fishable as they are fun. The Freedom 235 sets the bar high in this category, blending all three important characteristics in one finely designed boat.
