New Boats: Aquasport 201 Osprey


The 201 Osprey from Aquasport is the next generation of the popular 200 Osprey, only this boat has been engineered for the new four-stroke outboards. Designed for both bay and inshore fishing, the 201 retains the open-water characteristics that Aquasport is known for. Key features include a 100-quart insulated and lighted live well with overboard drain, raw-water washdown, port and starboard rod storage, tackle storage and grab rails that are easy to find yet don't interfere with fishing. Rigged with an Evinrude 150-hp FFI, the 201 turns 5200 rpm for a top speed of 47 mph, and cruises at 36 mph at 4000 rpm. A Plexiglas windscreen protects the helm, and the leaning post contains a 68-quart cooler underneath. The hull has a high-density composite transom and fiberglass-encapsulated stringer system that carries a ten-year transferable warranty. A swim ladder is standard, as is a trailer.
