NorthCoast’s 315 HT is the builder’s flagship cabin model, a boat that combines traditional New England style with modern build techniques and amenities. It has a pure New England profile, with a fully enclosed helm and a large cockpit. The 315 HT can sleep four people belowdecks and is versatile enough to take out for a coastal cruise or an offshore fishing expedition.

The 315 HT comes standard with a pair of 250 hp Yamahas, but it is rated for up to twin 300s on the transom. NorthCoast’s provided numbers with the max horsepower show a top speed of 59 mph. At its optimum cruising speed of 31 mph, it reportedly burns 18.5 gph. With its 316-gallon fuel tank, the boat can handle long runs between ports before needing a refill.

The 315 HT is made to handle sporty New England offshore conditions, with a true deep-V hull that tapers to 23 degrees of deadrise at the transom. For fishing, it features two insulated 58-gallon fish boxes—with macerators—built into the cockpit sole. The full transom holds two livewells; one is 26 gallons and the other 19 gallons. Each cockpit gunwale sports two stainless-steel rod holders and a cup holder. The hardtop features an additional six rod holders. There’s also an inboard-swinging tuna door in the port gunwale. A cockpit tackle station opens to reveal slots that can hold up to six tackle trays. A raw-water washdown system and a freshwater one come standard.

But there’s more to the 315 HT than just fishing. A cockpit grill and pull-out refrigerator come standard, so the food-and-beverage part of entertaining is covered. Two aft-facing cockpit jump seats combine with a 60-inch foldout transom bench so the crew can rest comfortably at anchor or while underway. In addition to overnighting capabilities, there’s a separate head with an electric-flush toilet with a 29-gallon tank, as well as a vanity and a shower nozzle.

All of these amenities, along with the 315 HT’s reported 500-mile cruising range (under the right conditions), make for a boat that lets you follow the bite up and down the coast, and you can also get plenty of rest and relaxation on the way.
