We Say: Our NorthCoast 24 CC tester proved itself a fishboat capable of offshore trips and one that will accommodate a family for day boating. Check out the 6 feet 2 inches of headroom in the console for changing clothes along with using the ­china head and comfortable double berth. Its 22-degree transom deadrise sliced through nasty chop, but the graceful bow flare and reversed chines kept the windshield dry. The chines kept us rock-steady as we hovered over a deep ledge, looking for stripers on the console’s big screen.

The leaning post/tackle center is wide enough for three people at the helm. It also boasts tackle stowage, rocket launchers, cup holders, a cutting board, a 35-gallon baitwell and a sink. A sturdy transom door leads to the integral transom bracket and twin 200 hp Suzukis.

In addition to the leaning post, a 72-gallon compartment in front of the console provides comfortable seating for two, and a sturdy foldaway seat at the transom accommodates two more. And NorthCoast places well-formed grab handles strategically wherever anyone naturally reaches for them. Coaming bolsters ringing the cockpit add comfort.

Twin Suzuki DF 200s provided performance and redundant safety, but for inshore work, a single 250 to 300 hp engine would prove able.

One more point about builder C&C Marine: It is a semicustom builder. Chances are, if you can think of it, the company can build it for you.
