In conditions such as we encountered during our test, the 3 1/2-inch toe kick and wraparound cockpit bolsters are welcome features. And when the fish are biting, the twin 170-quart macerated fishboxes will also come in handy. Both boxes, along with the cavernous 300-quart compartment in the foredeck, are fully insulated, and the hatches are equipped with heavy-duty, pneumatic rams. Eight-inch, pop-up bow, stern and spring cleats give the 24 a clean (and tangle-free) look. The recessed stainless-steel bow rail and Euro-transom add to the contemporary profile.
