From stem to stern, the 230 is all new and integrates great use of space with functional features, starting with the top-loading anchor locker and optional windlass and anchor chute. When configured with the anchor chute and windlass, the hatch is split, with access to the rode and chain offset to starboard. Without the windlass, the hatch is offered in one piece, to provide access to all ground tackle in the same compartment. Not an afterthought, this detail is designed into the boat. With pull-up cleats to port and starboard, as well as a recessed handrail, the foredeck is free of obstructions. On deck, the forward cockpit features two 101-quart insulated fish boxes that drain overboard. The boxes are separated so an angler chasing a fish around the boat can walk fully forward without having to worry about a step up. Likewise, this setup provides easy access to the anchor locker, without your having to negotiate a casting platform on the foredeck.
